Feared and wild, the wolves are a mammalian species that has accompanied man for thousands of years. In addition to being considered the ancestors of domestic dogs are a recurring reason for tattooing. At the tattoo shop Logia Tattoo we tell you some curiosities about wolf tattoos and their meaning. And you can come by and pay us a visit to get a walk in tattoo as well!
Wolf Tattoo Meaning
Wolves are important animals for the ecosystem, although the population of wolves has been declining more and more because of man. On the one hand, wolves are carnivorous and tend to hunt in a herd, so they are considered social animals that follow a well-defined structure. Therefore, many people choose the wolf tattoo to symbolize both strength and ferocity as teamwork and family.
On the other hand, leading the pack we find the popular Alpha Male next to the Alpha Female. The couple is responsible for the group and as leaders are responsible for solving the conflicts that arise in the pack in order to keep it always united. The Alfa couple provides protection and security, being the example to follow.
Wolves are very intelligent and territorial animals. Their natural fierceness gives them a unique beauty. Wolf tattoos are also inspired by some of the values associated with their behavior. As for example, the nobility, the cooperation between the herd, the cohesion of the group or the great capacity for adaptation. These may be some reasons to tattoo this splendid animal but for each person this tattoo has a personal meaning.
