The Triangle symbol is one of humanity’s most mystical geometric symbols. There are so many mysteries and concepts that we often have no idea why, but we always associate it with secret groups, such as the Illuminatis, or with mysterious places that are indecipherable to humanity until today, such as the Bermuda Triangle. But, just as it is wrapped in several enigmatic meanings, it also represents many positive things that few know about!

Formed from three sides, the symbolic history of the triangle has always been present in religions and cultures around the world, where it was used to portray a most holy Trinity.

In Christianity, for example, it was: God the Father, Son (Jesus) and Holy Spirit, where we have different beings, but who are the same essence, one.

In Hinduism, they were Brahma (Creator), Vishnu (the preserver) and Shiva (the destroyer); the same was repeated in Egypt, with Isis, Osiris and Horus; in spiritism we saw God, spiritual principle and material principle. In the Celts, on the other hand, we had the triangle represented in the aspects of mother earth: virgin, mother and elder.

Even in Philosophy we saw the symbology of the triangle associated with a trinity, Plato defined: being (perfect model), becoming (copy of the model) and receptacle (space, place).

To better understand all these meanings, we can take as a basis what the esoteric schools say about the meaning of the triangle. Seen as the divine trinity, we can understand all religions as one side, harmony, the other, wisdom and, finally, perfection, as in Christianity, for example.

If we pay attention to all the meanings of each culture and religion, we will realize that the triangle is a symbol of the sum, which needs two complementary elements to give rise to a third, as well as the sum of life and death, which results in the evolution of man, or light and darkness, which result in knowledge, among others.

Freemasonry, a famous secret society that uses philosophy and philanthropy as a basis, uses the triangle as a symbol of spiritual development and maturation. Its sides represent light and darkness, while its base meant duration.

Through the influence of Grand Master Benjamin Franklin, the triangle became a very famous image on the dollar bill, where we see the tip of a pyramid with one eye, being illuminated by the sun: the so-called All-Seeing Eye.

Another curiosity is that the society calls the Masonic Triangle, a nucleus formed by three to six Masonic masters with the intention of forming a Masonic Lodge – which is the structure where Masons gather to work in a ritualistic manner according to the rites they adopt.

For them, triangles have three meanings related to terrestrial elements: the right triangle, which symbolizes water; the isosceles triangle (two identical sides), which symbolizes fire; and the scalene triangle (three uneven sides) that symbolizes the air.


In Alchemy, the equilateral triangle (that is, a triangle with all its sides equal) is used to represent the four elements, so that the triangle pointing upwards symbolizes fire; the triangle that also points upwards, but has a cut of a horizontal line, symbolizes the air; while the triangle pointing downwards represents water and the other that also points downwards, but with a cut of a horizontal line, symbolizes the earth. Thus, these four types are organized and form the pentagram, famous symbol of Alchemy.

An interesting curiosity is that, in Roman, Greek and Indian cultures, the equilateral triangle downward symbolizes the woman, for representing the pubis or female sexual organ. In other cultures, two equilateral triangles unified by their base represent the waxing and waning phases of the moon, while being joined by the tips, they represent the union of male and female.


Given these diverse meanings, many are still confused when it comes to getting a triangle tattoo, but at the same time, it is one of the most successful symbols in the tattoo world, for both sexes.

If, for example, you choose a design with an upward facing triangle, you may be wanting to convey the meaning of fluidity, change or, for men, virility. When the form is turned downwards, it can represent the feminine or passivity.

There are also those who tattoo the famous triangle with an eye inside, which can mean a Christian symbol, the “Eye of Providence”, which represents spiritual knowledge or omniscience. So, as we said above, it can also represent something mysterious, like Freemasonry.

But there are those who only use it to sympathize with the geometric shape or, for people who like many tattoos, it is a great option to fit in small empty spaces.
