Tattoos that mean struggle are powerful. They convey a message that only those that have experienced struggle will understand. If you are battling an internal struggle, consider something abstract like a generic human body with boxing gloves inside it. You could even use a power word to create a word association to your private struggle.

A couple of struggle tattoo ideas include a yin and yang conflicting with each other or a quote that says something like “Without struggle there is no progress”. You do not have to directly reference your own struggle in your tattoo. Simply referencing that you are having difficulties or have a life-long battle you’re fighting is good enough.

One idea with a strong meaning is getting the Buddhist knot of eternity. It is a symbol of protection, which can help give you strength during your times of struggle.
