Unalome tattoo designs have become very popular especially among women due to their aesthetic appeal and powerful symbolism. Although minimalistic in form, unalome tattoos are truly beautiful and meaningful.

Unalomes can be symbolic of feminine and masculine energy, depending on which direction their spirals are faced: left for female and right for the male.

Unalome Male/Female Versions


Metaphorical, the Unalome represents the journey each person makes throughout its life. The path starts in the center of a spiral which represents the way we are trapped in our own weakness, fear, and uncertainty. The straight line symbolizes that throughout life we get knowledge, we learn from mistakes and our minds find clarity becoming more and more conscious of our surroundings until we arrive at a point when we achieve nirvana.

A unalome tattoo is a visual metaphor for life’s journey and the goal of achieving full awareness of our existence. It is also a way to express your spiritual personality.

Unalome tattoo designs can be ornated and elaborated at will and can be combined with other powerful symbols or sacred geometry designs.
