20 Powerful Ankh Tattoo Ideas – Analogy Behind the Ancient Symbol

At their most basic, ankh tattoos represent life and the abundance available to all humankind and life in nature. Specifically, the ankh symbol illustrates the combination of elements that create life. The loop at the top is symbolic of the sun as it joins the earth’s horizon. This union between sun and earth as conveyed in the ankh symbol is profound for the ancient Egyptian mindset, which is where this symbol originates. The sun sweetly kisses the lands of Egypt – providing vital growth and abundance. With the combination of the all-powerful sun and the earth along with her waters – all life in Egypt is promised to prosper. The ankh is also a symbol of the combination of male and female powers, as well as the connection between sun and earth. These combined associations are sacred as we see the ankh is a symbol of the union between Osiris and Isis – prime deities of the ancient Egyptians.
