The image of a pig for tattoos doesn’t belong to the popular category. Pig is an ambiguous animal. Different religions have different attitudes to this beast. In Buddhism, a pig is considered to be a sacred animal, while in Islam it is dirty and vicious. The boar symbolizes the opposite things: greed and prosperity, anger and passion.
Pig tattoos are divided into two types:
The meaning of a tattoo depends on whether the image of a domestic pig or wild boar is used. The domestic pig is considered a symbol of wealth, fertility, prosperity, but the animal was endowed with such negative characteristics as anger, greed, lust. Wild boar symbolizes aggression, endurance, family fidelity.
In China, animals are not divided into wild and domestic ones. Therefore, the same tattoo can be interpreted in different ways. The domestic pig is associated with sacrifice and meekness, while the boar symbolizes courage. Inking a tattoo with a wild boar, a person shows courage, wisdom, cunning and dexterity, which are characteristic features of the beast.
