25 Intricate Infinity Tattoos That Go Beyond The Y2K Trend

Trending Tattoos

Growing up in the early aughts was such a wild time. Whether you were wearing Juicy Couture tracksuits, a bare midriff, dresses combined with your favorite low-rise trousers, or a chunky belt, you were a part of the problem. We can finally say that infinity tattoos are one of the *rare* Y2K trends that aged well.

We’re all aware of the comebacks that were made over the past few years – between chunky platforms, bucket hats, and mini handbags that can’t even fit a phone, there’s no denying that the 2000s are back. What about tattoo trends, though? We’ve all witnessed the sudden surge of infinity tattoos, right?

We’re pleased to say that infinity tattoos are back and they’re here to stay. After all, we saw Dakota Johnson and Chris Martin get matching infinity tattoos a while back after a year of dating each other – and they’re still going strong. With the meaning behind the infinity tattoo, we’re not surprised.

Regardless of the style of the tattoo you opt for, infinity tattoos typically represent eternity. When you add elements that represent romantic love, family love, or similar styles, you can amplify or completely change the meaning of the tattoo. With that out of the way, we’re bringing you a few of our favorites.

1. A minimalistic infinity tattoo

We gotta start small and simple for those of you who are considering getting their first tattoo. Infinity tattoos are the perfect pick because they’re wearable and versatile, and they’re quite effective regardless of the placement. A minimalistic infinity tattoo on the back of the arm might be the right one for you.

2. A line-art infinity tattoo

If you’re on the hunt for something a little more creative, though, you can stick with the line-art style without sacrificing originality. It might be a good idea to get a double or a triple infinity tattoo or an infinity tattoo that looks like a simple scribble (like the one in the picture).

3. A matching infinity tattoo with your siblings or friends

Argh, matching tattoos are so 2000s, too! At the end of the day, you might want to mark your and your siblings’ love for each other by getting matching infinity tattoos on the wrist (or anywhere else on the body!) A double or a triple infinity tattoo sounds great, too.

4. A tattoo of two hands holding the infinity sign

If you’re tired of seeing the infinity sign everywhere you look (thanks to the Y2K comeback), you might want to opt for a tattoo of two hands holding the infinity sign. It’s the same meaning, the same idea behind the tattoo, but it’s a little more creative than a simple infinity sign.

5. An infinity tattoo on the collarbone

We’re obsessed with collarbone tattoos because they’re delicate and dainty, and that might be something you’re drawn to, too. Getting an infinity tattoo embellished with a little heart might be your way of celebrating the unbreakable bond you share with your loved ones.

6. A pear blossom infinity tattoo

A tattoo of a pear blossom stands for friendship and that’s why a pear blossom might be the one thing you add to your infinity tattoo to make it more – well – you. Whether you want to pay homage to your friendship or surprise your BFF with a tattoo devoted to your friendship, we support you.

7. A dagger to the neck infinity tattoo


Moving away from positive tattoos, you might want to get a tattoo that represents all the struggles you’ve overcome. A dagger tattoo represents betrayal, loss, and danger but the same tattoo can be seen as a symbol of protection, sacrifice, and bravery. At the end of the day, it’s up to you to decide.

8. A tattoo of two infinity thistles above the ankle

We haven’t seen a beautifully designed thistle tattoo in a minute, but we’re more than happy to recommend this one. A thistle tattoo represents self-reliance, protection, and devotion. A thistle tattoo can *also* act as a talisman against the evil eye, damage, or others’ bad thoughts.

9. A daffodil infinity tattoo

Flowy, floral tattoos are all the rage among female tattoo-getters, and we know why. Every flower represents a different thing and you can experiment with different flowers to come up with a meaning that works for you. A daffodil tattoo represents rebirth, new beginnings, and new phases.

10. A lilac infinity tattoo

A lilac tattoo represents all the good qualities you value about yourself or about the people you’re surrounded with. Getting a lilac tattoo can symbolize the way you appreciate the sensitive side of things and the way you’re happy to be someone who possesses a pure heart.

11. A blue poppy infinity tattoo

A blue poppy tattoo represents remembrance and sacrifice. People who get poppy tattoos typically devote them to deceased members of the family or friends, to pay homage to them and to remember them for the good things they’ve done.

A blue poppy tattoo can be a way to appreciate the flower’s beauty, too.

12. A koi fish infinity tattoo

When you’re thinking of getting an infinity tattoo but you’re scared of looking a little too basic or boring, you can always opt for a tattoo that doesn’t necessarily look like an infinity sign. A koi fish infinity tattoo, for example, looks like a regular tattoo before you get closer and inspect the details of the tattoo.

A koi fish tattoo typically symbolizes strength, perseverance, and good fortune in Japanese culture. 

13. A wave infinity tattoo

While we’re on the topic of water-style tattoos, you might want to get a wave tattoo that represents your devotion to your partner or reflects your thoughts and feelings about self-love. Playing with the design of the tattoo before you proceed with the needlework might be the best way to get what you want.

14. An infinity dragon tattoo

A dragon tattoo represents wisdom, freedom, and strength to deal with whatever life throws at you. Whether you’re going through a tough time or you’re thinking of doing something to commemorate your struggles, you might want to get an infinity dragon tattoo.

15. A “Memento Mori” infinity tattoo

Actually, dragon tattoos can be quite wearable and versatile, too. An infinity dragon tattoo might be a great place to start when you’re working on the style of the tattoo you want to get – add a little mantra and you’re good to go.

16. An antique-style infinity tattoo

Maybe you want to get a tattoo that looks good when combined with your aesthetic. Maybe you’re obsessed with antique things and you’re more than happy about the thought of getting a tattoo that looks golden. Whatever the case might be, an antique-style infinity tattoo might be the one for you.

17. A snake infinity tattoo

A snake tattoo? Absolutely! Snake tattoos get a bad rep because they’re oftentimes deemed negative, scary, and socially awkward (especially when you get them done on a part of the body that’s on display at all times).

A snake tattoo, however, represents a personal journey of transformation, a commitment to knowledge or healing, or a connection to divine power.

18. An infinity knot tattoo on the hand

An infinity tattoo or an infinity knot tattoo? If you’re worried about channeling your inner Y2K girlie a little too much, you might want to opt for an infinity knot tattoo. It comes with the same sentiment without the “boring and basic” label, and it’s a great way to add a little something to an already beloved style.

19. An infinity knot on the wrist

Whether you get an infinity knot tattoo on the hand or the wrist, you’re guaranteed to attract attention and turn heads. Wrist tattoos, however, do have the power to make you look like you know what you’re doing.

An infinity knot tattoo represents the endless cycle of suffering of birth, death, and rebirth within Tibetan Buddhism. 

20. An infinity tattoo on the finger

A finger tattoo might not be everyone’s cup of tea, but there’s something about the simplicity of the style that gets us going every time. An infinity tattoo on the finger can be a great way to see whether you’re happy with the style of the tattoo (and whether you want to get another one).

21. A matching infinity finger tattoo

A matching tattoo with all your BFFs can be a great way to celebrate your friendship. What better way to commemorate all the years you’ve spent together than to get a matching infinity tattoo on the finger?

22. An infinity tattoo on the back of the neck

What about the back of the neck? When you’re on the hunt for a tattoo placement that’s going to conceal the fact that you’ve gotten a tattoo, you might have a winner right here. An infinity tattoo on the neck can be easily concealed and revealed, depending on your personal preferences.

23. A sun and moon infinity tattoo

A sun and moon tattoo represents two opposites, the harmony between masculine and feminine energy, and the existence of the ebb and flow of life. When you combine the two elements with the infinity sign, you get quite a meaningful tattoo that can represent who you are as a person.

24. A fine-line infinity tattoo

Big, bold tattoos are always at the forefront of styles that are popular among tattoo-getters, but that doesn’t mean that you need to “go big or go home.” Get a smaller, simpler fine-line tattoo and you’re good to go.

25. An infinity tattoo with your and your SO’s initials

We’ve arrived at the end of the article with an infinity tattoo with your and your SO’s initials. When you want to show your affection or celebrate your anniversary, you might want to opt for a tattoo that honors your relationship. Go on!
