It seems that no creature in the world has acquired myths to the same degree as a fiery salamander. According to ancient scientists, this amphibian perfectly feels where there is fire, and can live even in the crater of the volcano. In fact, a few people are lucky to see a salamander on fire, although theoretically it is really resistant to flames. The lizard lives in Africa and in the legendary Carpathian Mountains.
The alchemists, who tried to find the philosopher’s stone, saw it literally everywhere. The salamander didn’t become an exception. In their opinion, the amphibian, who had a unique poisonous breath, was able to maintain the desired temperature during a mysterious procedure. That’s why, the salamander was often painted red.
In the Middle Ages or in the Renaissance, salamanders stayed popular. On the medieval emblems, the salamander has already lost its infernal image a little and became the symbol of the “fiery” struggle between good and evil. In the heraldry of the countries of Western Europe, this amazing beautiful amphibian denoted courage, steadfastness and courage. The coat of arms with the salamander was proudly worn by representatives of noble families.
The interpretation of salamander image in Christianity is rather interesting. It is believed to be asexual and symbolize humility and chastity, the amphibian was almost a sacred creature. Considering its resistance to fire, according to theologians, it was an example of exactly how a Christian should struggle with diabolical obsession and temptations.
In modern culture, the meaning of a salamander tattoo is as follows: courage, pride and leadership. Most often, tattoos with the depiction of this amphibian are chosen by passionate and strong personalities – the ones, who consider themselves as leaders and who are not deprived of reasonable ambitions. Considering that the amphibian is active in the dark, it is not surprising that over time it has become a symbol of conflicting opposition: persistence and flippancy, dashing self-confidence and serene peace.
Salamander is revered as a spirit of fire. It is most commonly depicted as a small wingless dragon, surrounded by the raging flame. Salamander tattoo is equally loved by representatives of both sexes. Ladies prefer to ink tattoos with this mythical amphibian on the inside of the arm, and men do it on shoulders and chest.
