Eye tattoos are a popular design choice and they can have a variety of meanings. Generally speaking, an eye tattoo is a symbol of protection and knowledge and typically represents watchfulness and omniscience. They often represent removing the ‘veil’ of ignorance and seeing the world from a higher perspective, being enlightened and seeing the truth in all things. Depending on the design, an eye tattoo can also represent intuition and wisdom, and can serve to remind the wearer to remain vigilant and always pay attention to their surroundings. They can also signify trust and faith, keeping a lookout for the wearer and acting as a form of guardian for them.
