When we begin to talk about love, you can be sure not to exhaust every little detail from the members such a discussion. Love is the number one topic on forums and chat rooms all over the world. We have love in our heart, may it be towards our family members, friends or the significant other. The heart and the heart sign are the symbols used by many to express love in writing. Due to this overrated feeling of love, many people have found their way into a tattooing clinic for purposes of expressing their love to someone of something through the ink on skin. You may be headed this way for reasons stated above or for any other reasons, but before you lay down for the tattooing session, you need to understand a thing or two about love tattoos.
It has to be clear to you that a tattoo is a permanent making on the skin. No matter where on the body your tattoo is placed, you may have to live with it for a long time. This means that if you are not ready to have a love tattoo to express your feelings to whomever, then it is not worth the trouble.
There is various type of love. Eros is the love a person will show you with the intention of gaining from you either physically or sexually. This love does not last for long as it is opportunistic. The other type of love is storge, in which some gestures such as holding of hands, hugging and even kissing are involved. This type of love serves to show ones affection towards the other. The third type is philo. This love entails tender affection. It is the type of love you express towards your family members, friends or relatives. The last one is called agape. This is normally referred to as unconditional love. While the other three types of love may give-up when things get thick, agape soldiers on. If you combine all the above, the results will be perfect love. However, perfect may not be the right word as purity is very hard to maintain.
Having known that, it is also important to know the colors to use on your love tattoo. Red is the obvious color of love. Purple can also substitute as it symbolizes passion. The symbols of love vary from one culture to another. The heart is the universal symbol of love. This is because it is believed that the heart is where our emotions seat. A love tattoo can take the shape of a heart. You may want to add cupid, the Roman god of love to make it more enticing. If you have just gotten into passionate love, then you can add cupid’s arrow, which symbolizes both the pleasures and pains that come with love. A broken arrow or a broken heart will mean that you once had love which was later betrayed. In the place of an heart, you can use a pair of lips to symbolize a kiss.
