Celtic cross and ying yang tattoo design

Celtic cross and ying yang tattoo design
One of the great things about Celtic tattoos is the the traditional Celtic design can be incorporated into virtually any tattoo design. This Celtic tattoo idea, for instance, features a Celtic cross with a Celtic sun at the center of the cross. The inner part of the sun in the Celtic cross tattoo portrays a yin-yang symbol, which, according to Chinese philosophy, symbolizes opposites and perfect balance. The yin-yang is made up of two identical but opposite pieces – one white and one black – that fit together like puzzle pieces. The main concept behind the yin-yang symbol, however, is that no two things are exact opposites. Therefore, the white piece has a tiny black circle inside of it and the black piece has a tiny white circle inside of it, creating a perfect balance.
