Ouroboros (Alex’s tattoos)

Alex's Tattoos - Ourobors

The Ouroboros is an ancient symbol depicting a serpent or dragon eating its own tail.

The name originates from within Greek language; (oura) meaning “tail” and (boros) meaning “eating”, thus “he who eats the tail”.

The Ouroboros represents the perpetual cyclic renewal of life and infinity, the concept of eternity and the eternal return, and represents the cycle of life, death and rebirth, leading to immortality, as in the Phoenix.
