If you want a tattoo that speaks of peacefulness and harmony then you can’t go wrong with a Yin Yang tattoo design. Chinese philosophy is all about the Yin Yang symbols, and they make for some pretty cool designs. The Ying Yang represents a balance in life. The Yin Yang is about opposites that interact with one another and the kinds of conflicts that are brought into our lives. The Chinese believe that if your Ying Yang is out of balance, then it can bring evil into your life. Goodness will not return until balance comes into your life.
The Yin in the design represents the dark in all of us while the Yang represents the light. These symbols can be interpreted in many different ways and how you take that depends on your own belief system.
The Yin Yang symbols come in many different designs, and they can be striking. You can place them just about anywhere on the body, and they will look amazing. The circular symbol is a unique one, and it will always be eye-catching. Check out the list below to see 80 Peaceful and Intriguing Yin-Yang Designs For Your Next Tattoo:
