According to the Chinese philosophy of yin yang, the universe and everything in it is both steady and recurring. One force controls and then it is replaced by the opposing force. To be precise, Chinese Yin Yang symbols represent perfect balance. Yin represents feminine energy, obscurity and limitation and Yang represents masculine power, radiance and strength.
The yin yang symbol is circular and it is equally divided into two symmetrical parts, yang is white and yin is black. Each side contains a small circle that is opposite the color of the section. Everything in the universe is represented by the outer circle of the yin yang sign. People believe this tattoo brings about harmony and unity in their life.
People get the Yin Yang tattoo on ankles, behind the ears, on the back of the neck, on the elbow or the forearm. In fact, this tattoo can be drawn anywhere on the body because of its minimal size and colors involved. Black and white are the primary colors used. But artists use innovative ideas on the tattoo and make it more vibrant and colorful with added designs. If you prefer a balanced life, Yin Yang is the tattoo for you, either with colors or just the original black and white version.
