Tattoo bands are stripes or arrows that are usually inked together in a line or as a larger tattoo design. Tattoo bands mean many different things to different people, but generally they represent stages of personal growth or journeys of self-discovery. The arrows in particular can often signify direction or guidance when trying to make a decision or figure out a difficult situation. The bands can also symbolize strength, resilience, and endurance – the idea that one’s path through life has been forged with the strength to confront and overcome obstacles. Lastly, they can be a reminder to keep moving forward, no matter what life throws at you. No matter what a tattoo band design means to you personally, it is truly a wonderful way to commemorate an individual story.
