Made you flinch, didn't I? This is the ever-recognizable biohazard symbol. It has been used in hospitals and labs for years to caution people to the presence of substances that cause a threat to one's health. Recently it has been used as a symbol to warn of a zombie apocalypse.
Ooh, this one caught your attention, didn't it? Unfortunately, this symbol has become representative of racism and "white supremacy." The dark period of the Holocaust used this symbol to breed hate and fear. However, the swastika happens to be an ancient symbol of peace.
This is an elaborate, Gothic ankh (AKA: the key of life). I have this symbol tattooed on my right thigh. Normally there wouldn't be any points and the symbol would be gold. It is an ancient Egyptian symbol for eternal life.
Another ancient Egyptian symbol, the Eye of Horus (AKA: Eye of Ra) is symbolic of protection, royal power and good health. I love the beauty of this one!
Are there any symbols that you fear? What are your favorite symbols?
