Snake Tattoos

Snake tattoos might look scary, but snakes are respected and held in high regard by many creatures. Although the serpent is associated with temptation and bad deeds, there are many people who see them as beautiful animals worthy of permanent ink. For example, the Native American Hopi tribe, Africans and Chinese see snakes as a sign of healing. That’s because they are connected with water – a universal symbol for purification and recovery. As for the Greeks, they are also considered as beacons of health because of Asclepius, the god of medicine. His power to heal sick people is inspired by the snake’s ability to shed off his old scales to come up with a new, shiny covering.

Apart from healing, tattoos of snakes also represent unification and cooperation. The inspiration for this again is Asclepius, and his association with the sign of healing (a snake entwined around a rod) similar to the caduceus – another symbol associated with regeneration and improvement. Another thought associated with snake tattoos is protection, as serpents were used in burial art to protect the deceased as they pass through the realm of the living to the realm of the dead. With these meanings, it cannot be denied that snake tattoos are filled with beautiful meanings. If you want to embody all these characterizations, then ask your tattoo artist to give you a compelling snake ink.
