Infinity is a concept in many fields, most predominantly in mathematics and physics, which refers to a quantity without limit and without end. Besides this meaning, people have developed various ideas throughout history about the nature of infinity.

In mathematics, the infinite is often treated as a number which, incidentally, is larger than any real number. All this magnitude of infinity started messing with people's imagination, after all infinity is something that obviously you can not measure. The feeling when trying to imagine that greatness is the same as trying to measure a very strong feeling, such as love, for example. And it is precisely this expression of an endless feeling that people seek to express to choose a tattoo with the symbol of infinity.
