Love has many names and forms. The basic definition is that is a feeling of strong or constant affection for a person.
In English, there’s pretty much just one word for love. But many other languages have several different words for love, and they all mean something a little different.
The Greek language distinguishes four different kinds of love: Philia, Eros, Storge and Agape.
- Philia – the type of love found in strong friendships. Tenderness and support abound in it, as well as a sense of equality. Used for love between family, between friends.
- Eros – the type of love found in romantic relationships (think “erotic”). Relationships with eros contain passion and intimacy. Eros is equivalent to wanting just one woman in particular (not like lust).
- Storge – the type of love found in family relationships. Storge involves empathy and affection, as well as compassion. It is the common or natural empathy, like that felt by parents for offspring.
- Agape – this type of love describe selfless, unconditional love. Some describe it as God-like or Christ-like love. It’s critical that spouses have charity for each other and love one another no matter what.
Love tattoos have been around for a long time. People get tattoos to express their love for family and friends, hobbies and memories, and even to express their faith and love for god. But mostly tattoos express your love to your partner and how much he/she means to you. Love tattoos depict various feelings like trust, passion, faith, hope, friendship, devotion and inspiration.
