Triangles in your Tattoo Design and Suggested Symbolic Meanings of Triangles

Triangles are interesting. They can have different meanings based on the way they are oriented. Over-all, they generally represent Trinities…or triads.

Body, mind and spirit.
Father, mother and child.
Past, present and future.
Father, son and the Holy Ghost.

A triangle with the point facing up can be a symbol of aspiration and masculine energy. It can also represent stability. A triangle with the point facing down can be a symbol of feminine energy.

The triangle can also mean change or transformation and represents the elements earth, fire, water and air. It depends on which way the triangle faces and if it has a line intersecting it.

Below are some custom tattoo designs where I incorporated triangles somewhere in the design for their meaning.
