In all cultures and religious scripts we find that the world is divided into good and the evil. This differentiation has been made on the grounds of morality and these are the more philosophical and religious concepts. There is also a lot of debate leading to controversies as both the good and the evil are abstract concepts. However, the struggle between the good and the evil is old one and still continues.
Secondly, according to some cultures, it is believed that there is an equal balance of good and evil in this world which is always constant. Whenever, there is rise of evil, the good is born to counter the bad or the evil. Hence, the good and the evil ratio always remains constant. This concept also gained popularity among tattoo lovers, and thus, good and evil tattoo were born. Today these tattoos are sported by a fairly large number of people. If you too are fascinated by this concept, then following are some ideas for the same.
Good and Evil Tattoo Designs
One of the basic thing you need to remember while making these tattoos is that you can either have a single tattoo, depicting these two aspects, made, or have two different tattoos placed next to each other. Sometimes, the two opposite tattoos can also be placed on two hands, legs, opposite sides of the head and other parts of the body, etc.
Angel and Devil
When thinking of the good and evil, the first things to cross the mind are the angels and devils. Angels stand for everything that is good, loving, morally right and acceptable; whereas, the devil represents the opposite that is wrong, bad, hateful, immoral, etc. The angel and the devil is also one of the most widely used design for good and evil tattoos. You can either draw an angel and a devil facing each other or draw them on different parts of the body. If you wish to have a larger design, then you can go for the battle of good and bad tattoo that is more elaborate and decorative. Secondly, you can even draw a single design like a face that portrays both good and evil when divided on either sides. This is however a skillful design that needs be made by a professional artist.
Yin and Yang Tattoo
Another popular idea is the yin and yang tattoo. It is an ancient Chinese symbol that stands for the duality of good and evil found in the universe. This symbol also stands for the perfect union or harmony of opposites. Among the different yin yang tattoo designs, the one made in simple white and black color is the most famous. Apart from these, other designs like the dragon, heart, sun, etc. can also be incorporated in or around the yin yang. One of the other advantage of this tattoo is that they can be made in smaller size and placed on the arms, wrist or back of the neck.
Apart from these, gods and demons, monsters and angels, etc. are some other designs. These tattoos can be placed on any part of the body. Lastly, it is recommended to consult only a certified professional artist for tattoo making. Good luck!
