Spider tattoos are another design that is quickly gaining popularity. And why shouldn’t it? There are very few cultures that do not have stories about spiders within their mythological histories, no doubt in part because spiders can be found on nearly every part of the planet, even on far-off islands, as spiders can travel vast distances using their webs as little parachutes! And who amongst us has not been fascinated by the webs that spiders weave and the way they capture their prey. Such images have fired the imaginations of men and women since the dawn of time. You can adopt the spider also as a mark of creativity and cunning, and when found dangling at the end of its thread, is seen as a symbol of good luck, because it’s thought to be bringing down joy from heaven. Amongst weavers the spider tends to be the symbol of their craft. In popular culture, today, the Spider and its web represent a force that’s even more treacherous. You only need to observe it processing innocent victims caught in its web to know that it’s a deadly, blood-sucking carnivore. And the spider tattoo in the picture is a black widow. No other creature speaks of death more then this deadly little spider.
I have always really liked spider tattoos. I think I like them because I know that spiders really freak out a lot of people. To the point that even spider tattoos can give a person the heebie geebies. And I like that. This one looks like one of those big nasty tarantulas. It would be even cooler if it showed those big fangs.
