A popular spider tattoo, especially among Emos or goths, is the black widow. A black widow symbolizes independence and vengeance. In popular culture the black widow spider tattoo and its web represent a force that’s even more treacherous. You only need to observe it processing innocent victims caught in its web to know that it’s a deadly, blood sucking carnivore. It’s no surprise that evil, flesh eating spiders, including black widows, are the life-blood of comic book characters, children’s games, and ghost stories.

They spell terror and fatal entrapment, and every one who loves a horror story, loves spiders. And the black widow is even more terrifying. The female black widow chooses a mate and then when she has extracted what she wants from the male, she then viscously attacks and kills it. And the final thing that makes this spider tattoo so fierce is that they are extremely poisonous. One bite from the black widow can be fatal especially to the very young and very old. If you choose a spider tattoo then consider the black widow. The women in the picture is a perfect example of what can be done with a well designed spider tattoo.
