A mythical animal, combining the power of a lion and the swiftness of an eagle, was known in ancient times.
The image of the griffin was decorated with coats of arms, objects of everyday life and architectural monuments. The griffin was considered a positive, sunny creature, often opposed to the symbol of evil and night — the dragon in Europe.
The main qualities of the griffin are strength, nobility, retribution and vigilance. The ancient Greeks considered him a messenger of the gods. The inhabitants of Ancient Rus loved to depict the griffin on the walls of the dwellings. The griffin was associated with the heavenly element in late Christianity.
The meaning of the griffin tattoo in many respects inherits the ancient notions of this fantastic beast. Being a hybrid of two living creatures, the griffin symbolizes the dualism of human nature, the constant struggle of the beastly and the rational, the dark and the light side. The positive meaning of the griffin tattoo is fearlessness, fidelity, protection of the weak and magnanimity. Negative — the desire for revenge and rancor.
In any case, you make a claim about your originality and noble origin by applying to the body the image of the griffin.
Griffins are applied to different parts of the body, but preference is given to the breasts and shoulders — this is a tribute to the heraldic tradition, when the coat of arms was placed in prominent places. The tattoo with a griffin is ordered by men and women with a solid and noble character, often these are representatives of paramilitary professions.
