Why Turtle Tattoos Are Considered Sacred

Tattoos are now irrefutably booming in popularity especially amongst the young. This is due to the fact that tattoos are a great way to express individuality and personality. Also the fact that tattoos are widely and positively accepted by almost every culture has also spurred their popularity. With all that being said, you may not know exactly what type of tattoo that you want to get. Turtle tattoos are a very popular choice among people with tattoos. If you think you may be interested in getting a turtle tattoo, read on.

Turtles have deep meanings from almost every culture across the world. Turtles are a fascinating animal. Thanks to their shells, they are very well protected from predators and danger. Also, turtles can live to be very old. It is no wonder that people have attached so many significant and deep meanings to turtles.

For example, the turtle is very sacred to many Native Americans. In fact, many tribes attribute the creation of the world to the turtle. The Huron, for example, believe that a sky girl fell to our world, which at the time had nothing but water and water based animals. The animals took her to the wise turtle. The turtle told them to put soil grains from the bottom of the ocean on his shell. They did this and soon the land grew and grew. The sky girl could live comfortably on this land. This land also became the world as we know it today.

This is just one example. Many cultures incorporate the turtle into their creation myths. Often, the turtle is suggested to either carry the world upon its shell or it is directly or indirectly used to support the world or the heavens.

The turtle is most often associated with steadfastness and tranquility amongst many different cultures. Turtle tattoos often represent bravery, endurance, guts, inner knowledge, recovery, safety, security, perseverance and longevity.

Another advantage to turtle tattoos is the opportunity for the tattoo artist to put a tattoo within a tattoo. Many tattoo artists like to make use of the shell of the turtle to add another design or symbol on it. For example, if you got a turtle tattoo, you could easily fit the Japanese character for strength or any other character you wanted onto the shell.

Obviously, you don’t have to use Japanese characters on the turtle shell if you don’t want them. You can choose something else that has significant meaning to you to be on the turtle shell. That’s the whole purpose of a tattoo is to make it something special to you.

Turtle tattoos are very versatile. You can have a very small and simple turtle tattoo. You could also have a very large and elaborate turtle tattoo.

Now you understand why so many people have gotten turtle tattoos. If this is something that you would be interested in, you need to find a turtle tattoo design that you like. Don’t forget that you can personalize it even further by having something added onto the shell of the turtle.
