MEANING OF SNAKE TATTOO

The tattoo of the snake is fascinating with its beauty and symbolism. With the help of our article and exciting photos with thumbnails you will be able to choose the optimal image with the appropriate meaning.
The snake was respected, valued and considered the center of the universe in ancient times. Despite the unprepossessing appearance, they admired snake’s grace and beauty. Tribes were amazed at the speed of attack and snakes’ instinct, as if they could predict every step of their victim. Their poison was treated, greased the arrowheads, which helped in battles. If a person survived after snake’s bite, it was believed that he was in a different world.




Perhaps no predator was so positive, despite its aggressiveness. The serpent was accused of tempting Eve and made the culprit of the human fall only with the advent of Christianity. However, this meaning is not present in tattoos. The biblical story gave them new symbolism (positive): cognition, sexuality, seduction. In this regard, everyone chooses the meaning of the snake tattoo based on their specific plot.
Each native had their own idea of a dangerous animal, so the meaning of the snake tattoo is quite extensive:

  • Animal embodies the eternity and cyclicality of life. According to the Indian beliefs, when the heavens fell to the ground, the snake separated two worlds, and still supports the clouds. The Aztecs assumed that the two main gods had turned into a quirky animal and tore into two parts a terrible monster. They made the earth from one piece, and the sky from the other. The Greeks believed that the cyclicality of life and death responds Uroboros. He is in the universe, and every day eats his tail, and he constantly grows and renews. Such a tattoo of a snake represents eternity and constancy, and it was an ancient symbol of the sun in Africa. If the predator sheds its skin it is a symbol of renewal and resurrection, rejuvenation and longevity. This image is made by individuals who have decided to radically change their lives, to re-evaluate their values. The body picture of a fiery snake is a cleansing or a sign of a good beginning.
  • Symbol of protection and safety. Indians believed that there is a way to the other world, but the entrance is protected by snake people. If you ask them for help, they will definitely help. Perhaps, beliefs became the cause of the occurring of various emblems. The animal wraps around the ear — plant protection service, around the rod of the god Hermes — a sign of commerce, around the bowl — a symbol of medicine. The picture of a snake can be a talisman, for example, Uroboros.

  • Fertility, feminine, symbol of the home. The tattoo of two snakes that twist each other is applied as a sign of strong love or friendship. Ancient tribes believed that reptiles can cause rain and protect their fields from drought. The Indians worshiped the predator, they assumed that it could curb the storm or direct a fair wind. The goddess of fertility was portrayed with the head of a cobra in Egypt. Animals were appreciated, because they hunted on rodents. The snake tattoos can be treated as sexuality, lust or femininity for girls.
  • Symbol of wisdom, teaching. The snake was one of the attributes of the goddess of wisdom Athena. The predator was portrayed together with the god-healer Asclepius and his daughter Gigee (goddess of health). The animal taught the doctor to resurrect the dead according to the legend. She managed to creep into the Garden of Eden, to convince Eve to disobey God and eat the fruit from the tree of knowledge. A snake tattoo on the arm, wrapping an apple or a rose, indicates that the owner can’t resist the great temptation. An animal with a lion’s head means agility, strength, luck. The tattoo of a snake crawling upwards on the cold weapon, means, that the owner has transferred a serious illness or challenge. Such a picture says about mental and physical healing, and is most often applied to the hand. The animal does not look aggressive and quietly creeps — a symbol of wisdom. A child with a predator designates a paradisiacal life, harmony and freedom.

MEANING OF COBRA TATTOO

Cobra symbolizes power. A snake picture was placed on Pharaoh’s forehead to emphasize his power in heaven and earth in Egypt. Beliefs say that snake protects treasures, and her head is adorned with a precious stone. The animal symbolizes patronage, strength, desire to rule. A cobra tattoo at the time of the attack looks beautiful, when the hood is opened, and the teeth stick out from the mouth. The meaning of the cobra tattoo is slightly different in the prison: if it wraps around a dagger or knife, the picture is a sign of the king of thieves’ suit. If a crown is depicted on the animal’s head, then the owner has revenged (killed). The predator always symbolizes the danger in the prison.

FEATURES OF SNAKE TATTOO

The tattoo of the snake looks beautiful in a realistic style, when each scale is drawn. The shades can be various: golden, bright red, to make the animal more aggressive, green, coral, orange, grayish, black and white. The picture can be depicted symbolically or monochrome, in the Celtic style, in the form of a rock drawing or talisman, in the style of tribal.

The snake tattoo looks great on the back, stomach or chest. You can emphasize the figure, the muscles or a thin waist, if you choose the right sketch. Well come out and small snakes, wriggling along the legs, or large paintings with numerous details and bright colors. The body pictures in the Japanese style are drawing attention. You can depict the battle of a snake with an animal, but the reptile must take precedence, as it symbolizes victory, strength and domination. If the victim overcomes the predator, then this is a manifestation of weakness.

SNAKE TATTOO FOR MEN — POWER, COURAGE, SPEED

Men often choose the image of a reptile at the time of the attack, mostly cobra, although the rattlesnake is associated with courage and fearlessness, since when attacking, warns the victim. It is better to focus on the head of the predator: spread the hood, give the scales militant color, identify sharp fangs. It is undesirable to pay attention to its flexibility, as it is possible to give the image extra pounds.

The snake tattoo on the forearm, shoulder and chest looks interesting when her head breaks through the skin and gets out of the body. You can depict an animal curled into rings, with dice or skull (either death or rebirth). It is interesting to get picture with a snake charmer that holds a flute in his hands, luring the animal out of the bag.

A small snake creeping up on the ankle looks good. You can choose a tattoo of a snake around your neck, as if it is trying to tighten the ring more tightly for men who love danger and strength. However, the tattoo with a snake looks interesting on the arm or leg.

SNAKE TATTOO FOR GIRLS — GRACE, CALLIDITY AND WISDOM

Girls often choose vivid pictures of medium size. The tattoo of a snake on the shoulder blade, when the predator creeps up the flower’s stem looks very interesting. Twisting predator emphasizes the ideal line of the foot from the footstep and to the knee or hip. The picture in the form of a bracelet adds a graceful and mysterious Miniature snakes on the neck, side of the hands, between the shoulder blades look great.

Girls should focus on the flexibility and smoothness of the animal. The snake tattoo at the bottom of the spine means femininity and sexuality. There is the energy of the reptile in this place according to the teachings of yoga. Most often this picture is chosen by clever, liberated, purposeful girls, wishing to emphasize their mystery, or to be protected by a snake.
