80+ Sacred Geometry Tattoos that Will Take Your Breath Away

Nowadays, tattoos have become a statement. Some people wear them merely as fashion accessories, to help them stand out from the crowd. This wasn’t always the case though. Tattoos have been around since ancient times, and they were used to protect the wearer or symbolize a spiritual connection with gods. Ideally, you should only go for tattoos that have a special meaning to you. That way, besides being attractive, tattoos can also be powerful, evocative, and even mystical. And if that’s what you’re looking for, sacred geometry tattoos might just be the perfect pick.

These types of tattoos have become popular because, besides being perfectly symmetrical and gorgeous, they can also carry a deep symbolic significance. In geometry, different shapes can be associated with different elements present in nature – the cube symbolizes the earth, the tetrahedron symbolizes fire, the icosahedron symbolizes water, and so on. In some cultures, it’s believed that having these tattoos on certain areas of the body can have a healing effect, can restore good health, or can provide a sense of balance. Plus, they’re stunning, which we’re sure you’ll recognize once you glance over our extensive collection of sacred geometry tattoos below.
