I get a lot of questions about the meaning of my tattoo. i had intended on getting this done by myself, and happened to share it with my two best friends. being the friends they are, they jumped at the idea of getting it with me. & of course i LOVED it. there’s honestly many symbolic meanings behind a triangle, below I’ve listed just a few of my favorites.
In Western society, the triangle most often has highly Christian meanings when used in a religious context. Because the Christian God is a trinity –
- Son and
- Holy Ghost
United in a single godhead – he is commonly represented by a triangle.
As a three-sided polygon, the triangle represents the number three, which is meaningful to many groups. triangles and other symbols made of three parts may be used to present such concepts as:
Point-up and Point-down Triangle
- A point-up triangle might represent a strong foundation or stability, as it is rooted to the ground through a solid base.
- The elements of earth and water formed from point-up triangles
- Symbols for air and fire are formed from point-down triangles.
The point-up triangle
- represents male energy, and fire and air are masculine elements.
- Point-up triangles can also represent ascension toward the spiritual world
The point-down triangle
- represents female energy, and water and earth are feminine elements.
- the point-down triangle can represent a descent into the physical world.
