Triple Spiral

I’ve been thinking a lot about tattoos. And, you know, maybe getting one. (For the record it would be #2.) I have spent a bit of time browsing images of triple spirals / triskelions. As added depth to the obvious symbolism, there are theories about a connection between the image and pregnancy or fertility.



I like all of the above, but would probably draw my own. I haven’t figured out where I would want to put it.

(Zoe has warned me this might be confused for the BDSM symbol. That is certainly not what I’m going for here… I think it isn’t quite the same, but may be similar? Should I worry?)

  1. i love it. I love the spiral, i love the concept. And as far as being confused with anything, i would guess the decision about where to put it would determine whether you’d have to worry about others wondering 😉

  2. I’ve been thinking about getting a tattoo also. Nothing symbolic has jumped out at me yet. It would be my first and it would have to be just right.

    I think you’ve struck gold with the triple spiral. The meaning is perfect.

  3. I got a tattoo of the triple spiral on the back of my neck earlier this year. I think it’s a great meaning. I got it after I had my first 2 kids and am now pregnant with triplets. Maybe it is good luck?

    • Wow! That’s awesome. (I’m still working on getting the design just right for my tattoo.)

      Good luck to you and your family. 🙂
