Fall In Love With An Elephant Tattoo Today

Elephant tattoo designs are quite popular among both men and women. It is rare to come across a tattoo that is widely accepted among both genders. The reason for this is because men like elephants because they are considered to be the largest and strongest creatures on Earth. However, women like them because they are also graceful, loyal, and endearing.

Despite their size, elephants are very beautiful creatures, baby elephants look adorable, whereas large elephants can look very powerful  but always very loving. These graceful creatures only use their strength when they are provoked.

There are so many reasons why a person gets an animal tattoo, sometimes that person discovers common attributes within themselves and wishes to show them off in a creative way, for example, elephants are incredibly loyal to their family. If your family means everything to you, then you may depict your love and your family members with an elephant tattoo.

One great thing about elephant tattoos is that they can hardly go wrong. Of course, the tattoo may not turn out the way you wanted it to, but at least people will recognize the elephant. They can easily be identified by their huge bodies, big ears, and a very long trunk.

25. Elephant Tattoo That Represents Family

Believe it or not, elephants are incredibly loyal and protective of the members of their herd. It may not seem so, but they live a very ordered life with a unique hierarchy and social structure. Female elephants usually live in herds that may contain up to 400 elephants to raise their offspring. Male elephants often roam alone.

To show your love and devotion to your family, an elephant tattoo is a great way to do so. Elephants will die to protect their family. If you share the same instinct for your family, then an elephant tattoo is the right choice for you. You may tattoo elephants in different sizes, and each one of them can stand for a member of your family.

It is a great idea to add something else to your elephant tattoo; a quote or another design perhaps. However, you should always double-check the quotes if you are not entirely sure what they mean. For example, this quote is in Latin, and we assume that the wearer of the tattoo wanted it to mean “love conquers all.” However, the tattoo actually means “all conquers love” because of the wrong word order. The original quote is “Amor Vincit Omnia.”  OOPS!

Elephants are also a symbol of consideration and devotion in a relationship. Aristotle claimed that one elephant abstained from having intercourse while his mate was pregnant. Pregnancy in elephants lasts very long – around two years. Therefore, this elephant was loyal to his “partner” for two years. That is why elephant tattoo may also be a symbol of patience, devotion, consideration, and chastity.
