He was invoked during wars as he symbolized the end of the war and the beginning of peace. He is usually represented with two faces, one for the past and one for the future.

It burns until ashes. Then, from the ashes, a new young phoenix rises to live another life. The phoenix’s cycle can symbolize the end of a cycle and the start of another one.

I hope you got some nice ideas for your 555 tattoo! 

You can also choose a specific tattoo style to match the meaning of your 555 tattoo. 


You have a choice between so many different styles of tattoos. Pick a tattoo style that represents well the meaning of your 555 tattoo.

In my opinion, you need a style that will illustrate the idea of change and transformation. You need a modern and artistic style.

I would recommend these 6 tattoo styles: 

  • Neo-traditional tattoo style: Inspired by traditional tattoos with more true lifelines and colors. Looks Old school with a feeling of new.

  • Watercolor tattoo style: Delicate and beautiful looking. Very popular among women.

  • Geometric tattoo style: Focus on lines and shapes (Simple or elaborate).

  • Sketch tattoo style: Gives a very authentic look to the tattoo.

  • Realism tattoo style: Looks exactly like reality.

  • Small tattoo style: Can be very small and intimate. Perfect if you still want to keep your tattoo simple, using only the number 555, or maybe also adding a quote to it.

Here are other tattoo styles you can also choose for your 555 tattoo:

  • Traditional and Old School tattoo style: Classic American tattoo. It is the kind of tattoo your Grandpa got when he was in the navy!

  • Anime tattoo style: Inspired by animes, TV shows, and comics.

  • Tribal tattoo style: From the origins of the tattoos. Inspired by the cultures, Polynesian, Native American, and more. A strong style perfect for confidence!

  • Blackwork tattoo style: All black. Perfect to stand out!

  • Japanese tattoo style: Use symbols. Perfect to tell a story.

  • Abstract tattoo style: Does not try to represent reality. A great way to differentiate.

  • Cartoon tattoo style: It can be anything inspired by your favorite cartoon.

  • Fine line tattoo style: Delicate tattoos, aesthetically pleasing to watch.

  • Portrait tattoo style: Must be done by a high-skilled tattoo artist.

  • Trash Polka tattoo style: A mix of realism, blackwork, and trash.

  • Black and grey tattoo style: One of the most common styles. You can do all the other styles in black and grey style.

  • Aesthetic tattoo style: Can be almost anything. Focus on beauty pleasure. 

  • Ignorant tattoo style: Looks like a kid’s drawing.


Like other tattoos, your body is your limit! 

You can make a tattoo everywhere you want on your body (I don’t recommend the face for obvious reasons).

It’s better to choose a place that matches the meaning of change and transformation.

In this case, you have a wide range of choices. 

If your change or transformation is relative to love and relationship, you might consider some areas close to your heart. For example the chest, ribs, inner biceps, or inner forearms.

If your change or transformation is relative to work and personal growth, you may be proud to expose it to anyone. In this case, I would go for the outer arms, shoulders, or upper back.

I usually do some simulations of tattoos to get an idea of the final result. For this, I print a design I like and fix it with adhesive on different places on my body.

You will understand quickly which part of your body is the best for your angel number tattoo.

Where you get your tattoo is ultimately up to you, but keep in mind that some places are more painful than others.

I experienced different levels of pain for each of my tattoos. It depends on the area of the body, the thickness of the lines of the draw, and the filling (or not) of these areas by colors.
