20 Small Tattoos With Big Meanings

Tattoos with meaning you can't deny.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

1. A semi-colon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.

2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."

3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.

4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."

9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty and artistic creativity.

10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love and creativity or to put yourself in to whatever you do.

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength & stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.

16. A glyphs means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."

18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe & the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can reminds us of the inconsistency of life. It is also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

13 Ways You're Damaging Your Hair Without Even Knowing It

Invest in your hair. It is the crown you never take off.


Most of us want to live to a better, healthier lifestyle and a lot of us do things that we don't even know about that hurt us. It's typically the smaller things that hurt the most. If you follow the tips below, you'll have beautiful hair in no time.

1. Not drinking enough water

It's a common fact that your body needs water to be healthy. Not only does a lack of water dehydrate your body, it also dehydrates your hair. Your hair strands become brittle and it can even make your hair stop growing completely.

2. Getting too much sun

We all know that too much sun causes sunburn on our skin, but do you ever think about what happens to your hair in the sun? Basically, it dries it out and causes breakage. It's easy to keep a hat on and your hair up to protect it. There are also hair serums out there that help lock in moisture.

3. Using heat on your hair without protection

Everyone knows that using a hot iron or blow dryer on unprotected hair causes damage, so just don't do it. Put heat protection on your hair before you apply any kind of heat.

4. Not getting the necessary nutrients

Vitamins are not only good for your skin and body but hair as well. There are certain pills out there that you can take, but make sure you do enough research before you buy a product because there are a lot of fakes out there.

5. Staying out in the cold for too long

The harsh cold hurts a lot. It makes your nails brittle and does the exact same thing to your hair. Wear a hat to protect yourself from the wind and snow.

6. Towel drying your hair

A lot of people towel dry their hair as soon as they get out of the shower. When your hair is wet, that's when it is the most vulnerable to damage. When you get out, you can slip on a cotton t-shirt or a microfiber towel made specifically for wet hair.

7. Using shampoo on the ends

Shampoo causes a lot of dryness to your hair because it strips off the natural oils. The oil is what keeps your hair from drying out so much and cracking. When you shampoo, only keep it at the roots and the conditioner at the ends.

8. Brushing your hair while wet

When you brush your hair while it's still wet, you cause a lot of breakage and damage to the weak strands. Let your hair air dry naturally or keep it in a microfiber towel/cotton shirt if you don't want it dripping all over.

9. Too much bleach or dying

You are always warned when you are about to bleach or dye your hair because terrible things can happen if you don't know what your doing or the salon doesn't. It's better to keep your hair at its natural state, or color it rarely.

10.  Sleeping on a rough pillow case

Your hair goes through a lot when you're flipping and turning all night. There is a lot of friction which can cause frizz and split ends. Make sure to use a cotton pillow. You can also put your hair up, but make sure it isn't too tight.

11.  Applying too much dry shampoo

Dry shampoo is used to soak up the oils from your hair, and if you use it too much then your hair will constantly be dry and will break easily. You also need to let the natural oils spread through your hair.

12.  Using dirty brushes

If the brushes or combs you're using aren't clean, it will cause buildup and wont allow your hair to grow properly.

13.  Using too much product

Using too much product will not only weigh your hair down, but it will also cause buildup and irritation on your scalp. The chemicals in general aren't best for your hair, so it's better to let it go natural more time than not.
