Customized neon lights have been a popular form of art for many years. The process is essentially DIY, but much less messy and cheaper than painting a mural on your wall. Styles typically range from abstract to surrealist and there are plenty of artists who create these special pieces.
Understanding what these bright lights evoke in your mind can tell you a lot about yourself as an individual.
If you love someone, this word is a reminder of your deep affection. As neon lights are linked to the 1980s, they remind you of simpler times. This is perhaps why this style of light is so often seen in bars and neon signs.
Just like the word ‘love’ is associated with neon lights, so too can we draw associations with the symbolism of life. This meaning has been around for many years but it remains popular in the decades that followed the 50s and 60s. This stands to reason as even today, blue and white are classic colors for clothing and hair dying still retains some popularity.
Whether you believe in the concept of heaven or not, there is no denying that the word suggests a better place to be. Whilst there are people who have used custom neon lights to remind themselves of their goals and aspirations, the majority of people seem to have opted for this meaning.
If you need reminding that someone trusts you, then neon lights can provide comfort and reassurance. This is perhaps why so many couples choose to share their love with this form of art as it marks a special moment in their relationship and reinforces their bond.
This term is somewhat open to interpretation, but it often indicates that you see the world as a brighter place than perhaps others do. Whether that means the afterlife or just your home is up to you…
Personal meanings can differ depending on the person, but this image typically brings back memories of comfort and safety. This might be a favorite blanket or teddy bear in childhood or even a nanny who helped raise you. Either way, neon signs can make you feel better because they bring back good memories.
One of the most common terms and the most memorable. Although neon lights are not eternal, in a way the brightness of their feel-good colors makes them seem like they will last forever.
8. ‘Boy’ and ‘Girl’
These two meanings are ideal for those with young families or for those whose children have just flown the nest. There is no doubt that these signs can be beautiful; especially when you see a mother bird and baby bird together within one light.
9. ‘XOXO’ (kisses)
This meaning is often used to express your love or remind yourself of it. Just like the symbol of kisses, these neon lights have a strong emotional appeal.
Neon lights are an ideal way to express your love for someone either for romantic relationships or just your children. This connection can be made simply by placing the lights on the wall in your child’s bedroom so that they can see them before they go to sleep. This is a great way to say ‘I love you’ and to make bedtime easier…
Music lovers will find their favorite music notes embedded within these signs which are typically a combination of pink and purple in color.
There is no better way to express your love than by using this classic symbol. The heart is the most common shape used in the signage industry and these neon lights simply reinforce that.
In an increasingly globalized world, we have to communicate with people we don’t know on a daily basis. This can cause tension but neon lights can help you to make a connection with someone different from your own culture or language.
The flower is another very common image which is often seen in commercial signage, especially for restaurants and bars. You can typically see this when there is bright lighting behind a bar or within the flower beds of private homes.
15. ‘Heart’ (with another heart inside)
It doesn’t get much cuter than this. The heart with another human heart inside is a unique symbol which conveys a specific meaning.
Neon lights with stars or planets in their light are meant to inspire you to fly further into the unknown or into outer space. The brighter the better and this style of neon is perfect for those who dream of being astronauts or going on adventures through outer space…
17. ‘Love’ (with a flamingo)
The flamingo is a symbol of love and happiness so if you want to add some fun and drama, then this style can do that for you.
