The three dots tattoo, which is sometimes referred to as the “temple point” or “Amulet of the Sacred Triad”, is often seen as a sign of representing one’s commitment to a certain philosophy or to certain values. The three dots are meant to symbolize a connection to a triad of being – the mind, the body, and the spirit – and stand as a reminder of that connection. Some may also get the three dots tattoo to represent the struggle of life: the past, the present, and the future, or for mental, physical, and spiritual awareness. Alternatively, the three dots are seen to represent two people and the bond that exists between them – two dots with a third dot at the top in the center. Thus, the tattoo can symbolize a connection or relationship between two people, or a sense of unconditional love or companionship.
