What Are Infinity Tattoo Designs?

Infinity tattoo designs are images of the lemniscate, a symbol in mathematics that signifies infinity. The designs can include additional images such as a heart to symbolize that love is infinite.

Text intertwined with the infinity symbol, such as the word "love," or "sisters," indicates a special bond that the tattoo wearer has with another individual. Some infinity tattoos include the names of a person's children in the shape of the lemniscate, to indicate that the love a parent has for a child lasts forever. The infinity tattoo can be inked on various parts of the body, such as the wrist, the nape of the neck and the finger.

One of the best ways to choose a tattoo design is to look online. Many tattoo websites have lots of example designs that can help you figure out what styles you do and don't like. While you might want to go with a traditional infinity symbol, you could do a double infinity, a floral infinity or a tribal infinity design instead.

Once you have an idea for what type of style you want, talk to the tattoo artist and personalize the design. You might have the exact design already drawn out, but many people choose to personalize their tattoos and have their artist draw something up for them. You can bring in sketches or pictures for inspiration, and the artist can draw a design for you. From there, you can tell the artist what you like, and what you want changed in the design. Don't be afraid to have him change something – remember, this is going to be permanent. Once you have the final design, it's time for the inking.
