Wolf tattoos have many different symbolic meanings according to the culture that they are adapted to. For example, Native Americans viewed the wolf as a teacher and sometimes a spirit guide, here to teach us valuable lessons about life. But, In early Christianity, Christ symbolization as the Good Shepherd, who protects his flock from predation, made the wolf a potent symbol of Satan. Despite the negative and positive attributes associated with these beautiful animals one thing is for sure. They are dangerous predators who have been man’s primary competitors for thousands of years. The tendency of wolves to hunt at dusk and dawn and to communicate by howling at night in many cases caused wolves to be associated with the spirit or underworld, shape shifters and malevolent or evil spirits. They symbolized fear of the night, darkness, and even demonic possession. At the same tine men could not help but admire the skill and success of the wolf pack. Regardless of the connotations of the wolf tattoo the bearer can impart whatever attributes he wants to it. Take the wolf tattoo and make it your own. This is what makes tattooing such a special art form
This is an okay wolf tattoo. Some parts of it have some really nice detail but over all, in some ways, it almost doesn’t even look like a wolf to me. I could be wrong of course and it may look exactly like a wolf to everyone else. But even then, the greenish eyes look weird and the nose looks like the nose of a lion. But if the owner is happy with it, so am I.
