Greater/Less Than Signs Tattoos

Ayesha Curry

Ayesha Curry has this little “><” greater than/less than symbol tattooed on her elbow to remind her to live in the current moment. Her husband Stephan Curry has a matching tattoo. Rather than getting them together, it seems that Ayesha got hers first and Steph was so inspired that he got his own a month later.  On October 1, 2014, Ayesha shared a photo of her tattoo and explained:

My new little reminder to be present. We get so wrapped up in what needs to happen next that we forget to enjoy the beauty of what’s happening right NOW. Right here, right now. Enjoy the blessings you already have. #onemomentatatime #iampresent #grateful

Then on November 7, 2014, she posted a picture of both tatts and wrote:

@wardell30 copied me ☺️? #hisswagmatchmine


Catt Sadler

Catt Sadler has a tattoo of two carat symbols > < on her right wrist which symbolize living in the present moment. In a post on her blog she explained its meaning:

“The ink on my right wrist isn’t a greater than less than sign, no. Truth is I saw this on a model at a photo shoot about 5 years ago. She explained that what it symbolized was a reminder to stay in the moment. The past, to my left if I’m staring at my tat, is the past. The future, to my right, is not promised, and may never even arrive. All that we are given is this very moment, and there in lies the gift of life. Focus on now. Be in this very breath. See the people before you. Quiet your mind and focus on *here* and *now*. I especially cherish that I can see this ink all day every day, as often as I see my hands really. It’s a gentle and permanent reminder to me. It’s especially sweet because I got inked with a dear friend of mine who got it in the exact same place. Love you LZ.”
