Circle tattoos

Circle tattoo design meanings Circle Tattoo Designs - It's easy to imagine the circle as prehistoric man's first symbol.  Early man was surrounded by circles, and the cycles of nature, from the moment he awoke to the first rays of the rising sun, until bedding down as the full moon rose in the night sky.  At night, the universe appeared to be made of countless tiny sparkling dots of light.  The circle was there when a person looked into another's eyes, and when they watched the concentric ripples of a pebble landing in a pond.  From the mountain top, a 360 degree view of the horizon revealed a world that was perfectly round.  Even the seasons were arranged in a predictable sequence.  Cosmic order, that's what the circle represented.  And it no surprise that some the first symbols depicted were representations of the solar and lunar aspects of the sun and the moon.

The circle is the perfect shape and symbol - simple, symmetrical, pure and profound - assuring us that the universe isn't hopelessly chaotic.  With no beginning and no end, the circle suggests eternity.  With its fullness, ripeness and pregnancy.  The full, unending curves of the circle soothes us by its association with the feminine principle.

Evidence of the circle's application by prehistoric peoples is nowhere more obvious than at Stonehenge in southern England. A circular arrangement of monolithic stones reflected an clear understanding of the relation of earth to the heavens.  It was used as an astronomical clock, as well a...
