The peace sign can be seen everywhere from t-shirts, to posters, bumper stickers, to key chains. The meaning for this simple symbol has expanded over time to mean many things other than its original symbolism of peace; it has also become an emblem for anti-war, and marks an association with hippie culture. Given all of the appreciation and acclaim it has received, it is not surprising that – especially in modern times – peace sign tattoos have become very popular.
Most peace sign and flowers tattoo designs show this symbol in a very basic form. It is usually just a simple black circle with a downward facing, three pronged fork. However, although many people like to stick with simplicity in design, they may also like to make their tattoo a bit more colorful and bold. For instance, you may see peace sign tattoos with melting rainbow colors; a raised, 3-D effect; or simple sparks of color throughout a black body.
peace sign and flowers tattoo designs are often mixed with other symbols. You may see a rose vine wrapping around the prongs with blossoms bursting at random spots; you may also see the peace sign made entirely of vines, or even sprouting thorns (which is meant to symbolize a guarded peace). One idea is to etch this sign on the back of a tortoise shell. This mixture of symbols is not only eye-catching, but meant to express a feeling of serenity within one’s own ‘shell.’ Other popular symbols that are regularly entwined with peace sign tattoos are flames, cannabis leaves, and hearts.
