Summer is slowly coming to an end. It's time to say goodbye to everyday sweat pants in your hometown and say hello to game days, nights at the bars and various other opportunities to get dressed up (when we aren't in our track shorts for class of course). As we get closer to the new semester, it's time to do a little shopping as we try to stay up to date on the latest trends. So here's the ultimate checklist for your closet this semester.

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!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

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."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6.Greek symbol of Inguz: where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya)


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.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from the Hobbit. It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

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.

5 Simple Ways To Be 'Extra'

Use these simple ways to keep yourself looking extra put together.

76
views

A small part of us all strive to look like we have it all together more than we do, so why not do it in a few easy ways?

1. Buy from companies that sell trendy clothes for cheap

My favorites include H&M, Amazon, Fashion Nova, Pretty Little Thing, Charlotte Russe, and Zaful.

2. Keep your makeup, hair and nails on point 

This does not require much work at all, but just to have that extra put together look, do a little to your hair, makeup, and nails when you want. You could even put on some cheap falsies or throw up a sleek pony to take it a step further. Keep your nails painted and groomed.

3. Accessorize, accessorize, accessorize.

Even if it's just a few rings or necklaces or some hoops, you'll have that added touch. Carry a bag or purse or throw on some shades.

4. Wear a flattering outfit 

These outfits don't have to be uncomfortable by any means, just matching and trendy.

5. Have a good scent

Find a perfume or body mist that you like and use it consistently. Everyone will be more drawn to you.

These tips can be taken in whichever way is best for you. You don't have to buy anything new either, just add things that you wouldn't normally.
