More than an aesthetic choice: the rich symbolism of snake tattoos

The awesome thing about tattoos is that no matter their size or style, they can hold great depth and meaning. The animal world is the perfect place to find a tattoo to be the reflection of the person behind the art. Often, a single animal can represent a handful of symbols and meanings, depending on the culture and snake tattoos are the perfect example of it. Snakes hold a certain fascination for humans. From The Bible, to Greek Mythology, snakes have been a popular symbol for thousands of years. Usually regarded as a representation of the forces of evil and destruction, snakes can have positive implications too:

•  with their ability to shed their skins, they are symbols of rebirth transformation, immortality, and healing
•  the Snake Demon or Serpent Goddess represents fertility in different cultures
•  crawling on the ground or swimming, they are seen as a symbol of earth or water and a huge source of primal energy
•  in Greek Mythology snakes are the bringers of good luck
•  feared by many and worshiped in several ancient cultures, snakes are seen as a symbol of power
•  snakes are seen as a symbol for charm, danger and sexual energy
•  these fascinating creatures can also represent wisdom and guardianship
