The Hopi Native Americans are considered ‘the peaceful people’ and have rich symbols anyone loving tattoos would enjoy. The ‘cosmic cross’ symbol, which is a circle with a cross drawn in the middle and circles drawn in each of the four empty areas is known as the Hopi world symbol. The four circles inside the larger circle indicate the four Native American Nations and the bars (or cross inside the circle) represent the directions of north, east, south, and west.
The power of symbolism is great indeed and is a way to get to know ourselves and the world we live in. Native American tattoos are a great way to show individuality and to honor and respect those who fought to live in harmony with nature.
