Symbols: Enso & Ouroboros

2 years, 1 month ago

Alright so basically all I’m wondering is if the Enso symbol and the Ouroboros (the serpent/dragon eating it’s own tail) are more or less the same thing or do they have specific separate meanings. The only reason I ask is because I was planning on getting a tattoo incorporating each of the symbols, but if it turns out they are essentially the same thing then I don’t want to be redundant… I was gonna have the enso symbolizing everything in the universe and then have the ouroboros (NOT from full metal alchemist) symbolizing man’s interaction with the universe and the need for the understanding of it. I’ve tried searching the web for comparisons but I can’t find any pages that talk about them together, saying whether or not they truly have different meanings from each other.

Could anyone shed some light?

The symbol, character, number or any sign is the interpretation of the creators mind to “placehold” the concept of the meaning, to be very abstract.

I would never put a symbol of another man on my body if I did not understand the essential meaning of it, but even if I did I would make my own symbol that represents my take on the concept.

A symbol created from your own mind, influenced by the concept which you described. You are all and nothing, you are the rainbow between the black and white, the maybe between the no and the yes. You are the sum of all biological creativity, you are a mortal god that eats it’s on tail through the years you live.
