If you’ve ever seen someone with a small red string tattoo, you might have wondered what it means. This seemingly insignificant bit of ink is actually a whole lot more meaningful than you could ever imagine.
These days, it seems like anyone and everyone has a tattoo, and much of the time, the images or words don’t mean anything at all. From love hearts to skulls, there are hundreds of meaningless tattoos out there, but what about the ones that actually mean something?
You may have noticed a recent trend of people getting red string on their hands and wrists. While they look quite cute, these tattoos mean a lot to the people who chooses to have them. The red string tattoo originates in Chinese and Japanese cultures, and signifies a powerfully strong bond of love between two people.
The tattoo is a metaphorical piece of string that ties two people together forever. Once the knot is tied, there is no way it can ever be broken. Whatever happens in the relationship over the years, it can’t erase the bond of love between the people.
