If your shopping for a wolf tattoo then you might just get some inspiration from the designs in the picture. Although most wolf tattoos show the more peaceful side of this animal, others like to express their aggressive side. These tattoos may show the angry appearance of a wolf, bearing its teeth and either rigid in a warning stance, or seeming to almost burst through the skin. Another example of this would be the werewolf. Known for their vicious tendencies, this depiction of ‘man turned beast’ may be shown stalking the streets of a city on a moonlit night.

They may also show the transformation between man and wolf. Two interesting mythological ties that can be used in wolf tattoos are that of the Celtic myth of the wolf greedily ingesting the sun, and the Roman myth of Romulus and Remus being looked after by a mother wolf. For the Celtic version, one can show either a full body, or bust of a wolf not only staring disobediently into, but drinking down a soft, and almost fluidic sun. For the Roman myth, you can portray the warm and inviting figure of a drowsy, yet defensive female wolf enfolded quietly around two small infants. This design may also be used by loving parents to represent their bond with their children.

Many people of Native American ancestry choose to get wolf tattoos because wolves are extremely important in their mythology. Wolves are seen as teachers or pathfinders, and can also symbolize ancestors or other spiritual guides. Different types of wolves were indicative of different clans and Native American tribes, as well as commonly being used as totems. According to tribal tradition the wolf has several characteristics which will be transferred to the bearer of the wolf tattoo.

Who doesn’t love the wolf tattoo? This is by far one of the best tattoos ever designed by any artist. I love how this wolf tattoo seems alive, and the wolf is just staring you down. Waiting to pounce when you make the wrong move, or to joyfully lick you in the face when you make the right move. Seems every time you watch a biker movie on television the local biker will have a wolf tattoo, well it seems that way to me anyway. I really do like the wolf tattoo.

Make it hot and naughty for the girls, and big and bad for the men.

I don’t think I have ever seen any wolf tattoo that hasn’t been black, their must be a reason a lot of tattoo artists don’t add colors to them. Maybe its a mystique thing around the wolf, use black only or else. I have to give a lot of credit to this artist, he or she did a great job detailing this from start to finish. This tattoo is usually used on the arm the most, but I think I have seen a few people that had them on their backs. No matter where you put the wolf it will look hot and strong.

The wolf is a powerful mythological and spiritual symbol in many cultures around the world, thus it’s quite natural that the wolf tattoo is a fairly prevalent one. Wolves were predatory competitors with early man and wolves symbolized ferocity, cunning, stealth, cruelty and even evil. But, because of their close-knit pack behavior wolves also represented loyalty, courage, fidelity and victory. Since the wolf is also a pack animal, this tattoo often symbolizes family and loyalty. The wolf can be seen in several different cultures but is especially important to Norse mythology.

In the Norse myths, the giant wolf Fenrir is central to the apocalyptic end of Asgard, the home of the Viking Gods, a symbol of chaos who swallows the sun at the end of the world. In Norse legend the wolf is also sacred to Odin, and to the God Apollo in ancient Greece. The Romans was another culture that venerated the wolf, because of the legend of the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus, being suckled by a she-wolf after being abandoned. But, the wolf tattoo is not always seen as a positive symbol. In that tradition the wolf is seen as being a symbol of betrayal and lechery.
