What Does A Spider Web Tattoo Symbolize
When considering a traditional spiderweb tattoo, it is important to understand that the meaning of any motif is ultimately defined by its wearer. This is because a spiderweb tattoo, in particular, can represent a wide variety of different meanings. This design has been associated with prison time for years, however, as the tattoo industry has evolved, the perception of particular designs has also evolved.

A traditional spider web is as popular as it is powerful, acting as a strong choice for any tattoo collector. The traditional spiderweb tattoo can symbolise a struggle in the wearer’s life that they have had to overcome.

Used within a naval context, sailors would tattoo this design to show they’re wanting to go home, with the web representing their long wait. This meaning still resonates with people today and is a great way to symbolise how much the wearer may miss family.

  1. One of the reasons spiders spin webs is to trap their prey, similarly, a traditional spider web tattoo can find meaning in the wearer feeling trapped and a longing to break free;
  2. The spiderweb tattoo is often seen tattooed on elbows or knees, this works well due to the shape of both the motif and the location;

However, spiderwebs also work well to frame a much larger piece on either the back or on the torso. Traditional spiderweb tattoos also look great when tattooed with other elements such as spiders, butterflies or flowers..

Holly jones on October 21, 2019: How about a male spider done by ur family zombiekitty on August 25, 2015: Then you cant forget the killjoy spider, it originated from a alternative rockband. (My chemical romance). Now most punk and emo childern still infame it. Basecially its part of a huge story line, and it a simbol used to represent a group of rebels. (Killjoys) Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on September 13, 2013: Yeah, that sounds like a great pose.

You have a great theme and idea. I forget the studies, but I remember a study that was done a year or so ago, explaining what percentage of men and women are afraid of spiders. It was quite high for both, over 50%, so over half of men and women are scared of spiders.

But to my point, over 50% were interested in spiders. In return, I believe that there’s a huge level of interest in spiders. My friend owns a local tattoo shop and he does a lot of business. As of 5-13, spider tattoos were up by 21%.

It appears to be low, but spider tattoos have been decreasing for years, probably as more options are now available. Anyway, I believe people find interest in spiders despite being scared of them. Plus, there’s a market for spiders also. Andrea Norwood on September 10, 2013: Thanks, I am going to try to put it on kindle single.

  • I have worked so long and hard on this and putting the pieces in the proper places;
  • I do hope it will work out great too;
  • I am finishing up the 120 pages and it’s just the length that kindle single accepts;

I have to do a cover and I have a great idea for that. I want a woman on the front, because the black widow female is over the male sort of thing. So, I will let woman lead on front cover. I figure I will have her turned so she’ll show the spider mark. Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on September 09, 2013: Andrea, you’ll have to let me know when it’s on there.

I like the colors, red and black. I’ve actually thought about a black widow tattoo. I’m currently trying to design a full sleeve, dark to light per say. This tattoo symbolizes my dark past and bright future, past mistakes, learning from these mistakes which turned me into the man I’m today.

I’m hoping to start creating videos that explain how to make tattoos, such as the black widow and other spider tattoo designs. Time really consumes me right now though, less time for writing and things that I love. I miss writing for a living, but I have to work to make money.

My SEO business is very slow right now as I continue to try to get our website up and going. Unfortunately, I don’t make enough writing to support all my children, family, and expenses. Hopefully your spider book is a big hit, a chance for you to be successful and known.

As long as it makes you happy, that’s all that counts. Andrea Norwood on September 07, 2013: Yes, that’s so true and I am doing the first 120 pages and putting it up on kindle fire as soon as the editing is done. People are going to really enjoy reading this and the second part two.

  1. I am putting both on kindle fire for now;
  2. Later, it can go book and both parts will be included, making the book 240 pages long;
  3. I am going to go and do my spider mark tattoo;
  4. I believe I will be the walckeaner and get the hourglass;

Although the sicariidae is the richest and the deadliest in the book, I take a liking to the walckenaer because of the color I guess. Join me in getting one yourself. Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on September 05, 2013: Hey Andrea:) I hope it does.

The great thing, with the internet, you have the ability to market your book to the world. I do my own marketing on social platforms, blogs, and 2. 0 websites. Yes, the Walckenaer, black widow tattoo. I remember reading about it when I was researching spider tattoos.

By far, the black widow tattoo design is the best spider tattoo. I didn’t know the left side/right side though, interesting. Many people don’t know the good spiders do for general life. For example, if it wasn’t for spiders, we’d be overrun with insects, which is bad for farming and many plant life.

  1. I always find it amazing just how delicate the eco-system is anyway;
  2. That perfect balance is the cause of everyday life as we know it;
  3. Andrea Norwood on September 05, 2013: Yes, and hopefully this book will change all of that and plus it’s a very interesting book too;

I plan to get the spider genus tattoo I was telling you about done soon. I think I want to be a Walckenaer and the Walckenaer’s are the latrodectus, black widow spiders, so they tattoo’s are the bright red hour glass. The females wear theirs on the left side of their ear an inch below the left ear, and the males wear their on the right side of the back an inch below their shoulder.

  1. The other tattoos would be the same for male and female only different tattoos;
  2. They are better known as mark, spider marks, like birth marks or similar to it;
  3. Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on August 30, 2013: Right;

You have a great idea and you know exactly how you want it to be portrayed. When I first became interested in spider tattoos and tattoos in general, I always thought about writing a book about all tattoos. I wish I had the time to do so, but I always knew the way I wanted it portrayed.

Spiders have many benefits, many that people don’t know. Spiders are very important to the eco-system. Your right, for centuries, spiders have been misunderstood. Andrea Norwood on August 30, 2013: I think I will name my book “Them” because they are different but simialr to human although they are spiders.

The spider want to get along with the humans and make what and who they are known to them, but they know the humans will become trouble and not that the spiders couldn’t defend theirselves against the humans if necessary. The spiders don’t want to be thought of as the monsters, creeps and freaks they have been judged as throughout centuries.

  • The other matters dealing with the southern white spirit vampires are other matters too;
  • Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on August 30, 2013: @Andrea, anytime;

Cool, I wish you all the best with your book.

Well, you can’t go wrong with a Twilight-like book. Personally, I enjoyed that series. Not to the point of team Jacob or Edward, but it was a cool movie series. Best wishes with it Andrea. Andrea Norwood on August 26, 2013: There’s more to it than that.

I am writing a book on them, with the tone of twilight. It is going to be good! I want to show people that spiders don’t have to be all creepy, and sure there is some dark in them and so is there in every character but the spiders have some good views too.

These spiders are socialite and created by their creator in the image and likeness of humans. Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on August 25, 2013: Andrea, thanks for taking the time to comment on the spider tattoo.

Interesting Andrea, so your taking the symbols for each specific spider and placing them above the left ear. This spider tattoo, or this mark is worn at different areas between male and female. I like the idea and concept, being that every spider has a unique mark or symbol.

  1. We appreciate you sharing this Andrea and thanks for visiting;
  2. Andrea Norwood on August 24, 2013: Hi again spider fans! I am writing a book dealing with human spiders and I have a idea I like to share with you about a spider mark;

What I mean by this is like a birth mark it looks so real on the human male or female. Females wear the spider mark (different marks for different spider genus) on the left side of the ear an inch below the ear, for instance if they are walckenaer, they will bare a bright red hourglass etc, the males wear their mark on the right side of their back an inch below their shoulder and if they are a walckenaer they too wear the hourglass, a brown recluse the three fork claw etc.

I think it’s a great idea and I use it in my book also. All for using this tattoo i will really thank you. Richard Ricky Hale (author) from West Virginia on August 23, 2013: Hey Tom! Thanks for taking the time to visit and drop a comment.

Awesome! Tom, are you working with a theme or just spiders? If you don’t mind, can you share your experience with neck tattoos? Resource for others only Tom.

I am writing a book about human spiders and I see just the perfect poses for a book cover.

I really don’t like spiders either. Their a unique tattoo choice though. I agree, the art work is great. Hope you have a good one Tina. Christina Lornemark from Sweden on February 11, 2012: Oh, even though I am not fond of spiders myself I have to say that these pictures shows great art work! Even the hair on the spiders leg a visible on some of them! To me, spiders stand for fear and death and I would never want to have a tattoo of a spider.

But I can also agree with they standing for wisdom and fertility. The tattoo with spiders crawling up on her neck is both beautiful and terrible:)) Thanks for the great information about spiders tattoos, to me it is like entering a new world!

  1. I’m terrified of spiders;
  2. The ones going up her neck are awesome;
  3. Thank you again;
  4. Helen Murphy Howell from Fife, Scotland on February 07, 2012: I agree with the other contributors that although spiders are creepy the art work was phenomenal! I love the spiders webs and could cope with that, but I think to see such a life-like tattoo on someone of a spider would put me off going near them! LOL!! I love dream catchers – the authentic ones and not the plastic multi-million production line ones – they are so beautiful and a wonderful piece of art;

I loved this hub especially the art work and the legends surrounding these fascinating animals. Voted up + awesome! Gypsy Rose Lee from Daytona Beach, Florida on February 07, 2012: Voted up and great job as always. Spiders have never been one of my favorites but I don’t run screaming from them.

However dead, alive or imaginative I wouldn’t want them crawling on me. I do like those spider web tattoos though. Looking forward to more. Frank Atanacio from Shelton on February 06, 2012: thelyricwriter some of these are just so cool Love it!!!! Aurelio Locsin from Orange County, CA on February 06, 2012: As creepy as these are, I am drawn to them because they indicate an edginess.

What does a spider web tattoo on your neck mean?

Struggle – This might be the main symbolism of the spider web tattoo; the struggle. It symbolizes one’s struggle in the complicated ‘web of life’, as it is believed.

  2. This kind of spider web tattoo can vary between positive and negative, but it surely leans to a more positive, recovering meaning;

It simply shows that the wearer ‘wants out’, but struggles and is unable to. The tattoo as such then becomes quite personal. Credit: @rdtattooer Interesting fact: In Russia, if one gets a spider web tattoo, it means the person is ‘confessing’ a drug addiction. In this case, the tattoo often features both the spider web and the spider.

What does the Bible say about spider webs?

One of the expanded dogmas of mankind is that the Quran is quoted or borrowed from the Bible. This creed is established upon studies of many prejudiced intellectual scholars In this series of articles (1-16), it is obvious that the Quran is quite different from the Bible.

  1. It is also very clear that the Quran preceded the sciences in many aspects;
  2. In the present topic of the Spider, the smart reader will answer easily this fake dogmatic question: Is the Quran quoted from the Bible? The Bible which says :1)Four things on earth are small, Ants, Coneys, locusts and a spider, 2)Locusts have no king, 3)The spider is found in kings’ palaces and 4)Whoever eats the eggs of vipers will die;

Or the Quran which says 1) The female spider is the one mainly undertaking the building of the house,2) The spider’s house, from the physical and spiritual point of view, is the weakest house of all and 3)The weakness is in the spider’s house and not the threads Before dealing with the topic of the Spider in Quran versus Bible versus sciences, it is essential to remember that the total words of the Bible are 788,280 while total words of the Quran are 77,473.

It follows that, the Bible has the potential of more than 10 times the Quran to talk about the Different Colors word-wise. The spider is mentioned in three verses in the Bible (all are in the Old Testament and never mentioned in the New Testament).

The spider is mentioned in one verse in the Quran. The Spider in the Bible: Proverbs 30 24 “Four things on earth are small, yet they are extremely wise: 25 Ants are creatures of little strength, yet they store up their food in the summer; 26 Coneys are creatures of little power, yet they make their home in the crags; 27 locusts have no king, yet they advance together in ranks; 28 a spider can be caught with the hand, yet it is found in kings’ palaces.

In my “Arabic” Bible, the verse 24 says:” the smallest”; this adjective is modified in the modern English version to “small”. However, there are thousands of creatures that are smaller than the Ants, Coneys, locusts and a spider and are wise also as for examples the microbes, protozoa and fungi.

Also, why the spider is found in the kings’ places specifically? Again, why the locusts have no king although they have? Job 8 13 Such is the destiny of all who forget God; so perishes the hope of the godless. 14 What he trusts in is fragile; what he relies on is a spider’s web.

In this verse, the trust of the hypocrite is compared to the spider’s web or house. This meaning is a beautiful one. Isaiah 59:5-6 Talking about those who are unjust and lie etc. 5 They hatch the eggs of vipers and spin a spider’s web.

Whoever eats their eggs will die, and when one is broken, an adder is hatched. 6 Their cobwebs are useless for clothing; they cannot cover themselves with what they make. Their deeds are evil deeds, and acts of violence are in their hands. Isaiah describes the wicked as those which “weave the spider’s web” i.

  1. , their works and designs are, like the spider’s web, vain and useless;
  2. However, scientifically speaking, the one who eat the eggs of vipers will not die;
  3. Guaranteed;
  4. Even the one who eats the viper itself will not die;

I wonder why the Bible put itself in such critical scientific conflicts. Spider in the Quran: Surah 29: [39] (Remember also) Qaroun, Pharaoh, and Haman: there came to them Moses with Clear Signs, but they behaved with insolence on the earth; yet they could not overreach (Us).

  1. [40] Each one of them We seized for his crime: of them, against some We sent a violent tornado (with showers of stones); some were caught by a (mighty) Blast; some We caused the earth to swallow up; and some We drowned (in the waters): it was not Allah who injured (or oppressed) them: they injured (and oppressed) their own souls;

[41] The parable of those who take protectors other than Allah is that of the Spider, who builds (to itself) a house; but truly the flimsiest of houses is the Spider’s house; if they but knew. [42] Verily Allah doth know of (every thing) whatever that they call upon besides Him: and He is Exalted (in power), Wise.

[43] And such are the Parables We set forth for mankind, but only those understand them who have knowledge. [44] Allah created the heavens and the earth in true (proportions): verily in that is a Sign for those who believe.

: Qaroun and Haman were the best friends of the Pharaoh of Moses. Qaroun was a very wealthy and powerful Israelite but was pro-Pharaoh. Haman was a top Egyptian official, he was chief of the army and police. Both Qaroun and Haman are not mentioned in the Bible.

Back to the Spider, the Surah number 29 is named “Al-Ankaboot” which means the spider. Naming the Surah with the singular form “Al-Ankaboot” indicates the solitary life of this animal, except at times of mating and egg hatching.

This can be compared to the Surah “Al-Nahel” (The Bees) and the Surah “Al-Namel” (The Ants), where the names are plural since these insects live in social groups. The word “Al-Ankaboot” is used for the feminine singular. The verse indicates that the female spider is the one mainly undertaking the building of the house.

Accordingly, building the spider’s house is an assignment carried on by the female spiders. It is the female which has in its body the glands for secretion of the silk substance from which the spider’s house is made.

The spider’s house, from the physical point of view, is the weakest house of all, because it is made out of a number of very delicate silk threads. These threads are interwoven, leaving large separating spaces at most times. Therefore, they do not protect from the heat of the sun, or the extreme cold.

  • These threads do not form adequate shade, nor protect from the rain, storming winds, or the dangers of attackers;
  • The Quran is very strict and clear when saying that the weakness is in the spider’s house and not the threads; (the flimsiest of houses);

the spider’s house is the flimsiest house, whether physically or spiritually. This has been proven by the late studies in zoology. In other words, the Quran preceded the modern scientific findings by more than 1300 years. The threads of the spider’s house are made of very delicate silk.

The thickness of one thread is usually one million of the squared inch, or one part of four thousand parts of the thickness of the ordinary human hair. Despite its delicacy, it is the strongest biological substance known to mankind so far.

The silk threads which make up the spider’s web are considered stronger than steel, and their strength is surpassed only by the melted quartz. The thin thread stretches to five times its length before it is cut. Therefore, the scientists call it “biological steel” or “bio-steel”.

  1. It is twenty times stronger than the ordinary metal steel;
  2. Its tolerance measures 300,000 pound for the square inch;
  3. Hypothetically speaking, should there be a thick rope of the spider’s threads, in the size of the thumb, it can easily carry a “jumbo” jet;

In addition, the spider’s house, spiritually speaking, is the flimsiest of all houses, because it is deprived of all love and kindness, which are the pillars of any happy home. The female kills the male as soon as the fertilization takes place. Being larger in size and more violent, the female kills the male and eats its body.

  1. Also, the female eats its youngsters mercilessly;
  2. In some types, the female dies after fertilizing its eggs, which are usually fostered in a silk bag;
  3. When the eggs hatch, spider lings come out to find themselves in a very crowded place inside the eggs bag;

The siblings then start to fight for food, space or both. The brother kills its brother and sister, and the sister kills its sister and brother, until the fight ends with a few spider lings remaining. These spider lings shed their skin and tear the eggs bag to come out one after the other with unhappy memories.

They all then spread in the surrounding environment. Each female starts to build its house. On the road to achieve this goal, some of the spider lings die, whereas those who survive repeat the same tragedy.

This makes the spider’s house the most violent and ruthless house, lacking all forms of kinship. Hence, Allah the Almighty sets it as a parable in its weakness and frailty because it lacks the simplest form of kindness between the husband and wife, the mother and her children, the brother and his siblings, and the sister and her siblings.

These facts were unknown to any human at the time of revelation, and for long centuries thereafter. They have been discovered after extensive studies of the behavior of the spider by hundreds of scientists, for tens of years, until they were realized in the last decades of the twentieth century.

That is why Allah ended the noble verse with His saying “if they but knew”. Some deep meaning of the verse: A- The house of the spider is not merely its dwelling place. Being the sticky net it is, it constitutes a trap for flying insects such as flies and others.

  1. These insects are a prey on which the spider feeds;
  2. Similarly, those idolaters who revere gods besides Allah, and call people to those revered gods, are in fact calling them to an artful trap which leads them to their death and destruction in this life and the afterlife;

B- Warning against those with corrupt invocations who revere others besides Allah, whether money or whim. This warning is issued through indicating their hidden strings with which they hunt their victims. These strings can be money, sex, power, or any other hidden string which destroys the victim once it is trapped.
