Spotlight: Snake Tattoos

Featured image by Mirkosata.

Snakes as a motif in tattooing have been around for a long long time.
While some trends may die, the majority of them get re-imagined, upgraded and become very trendy again. This may be the case of the snake tattoo.


An advantage of these designs is that it can be placed anywhere and can be drawn to accentuate your features and look as it was in motion.

Whether you are going for a traditional design, Asian influences or a more modern or minimalist design,
these beautiful beings seem to be around more often lately in the tattooing world.

The meaning of the snake varies between cultures and religions and it can mean a number of things from The Divine, to  Temptation and Seduction or even Vindictiveness. Or maybe it can be just a tribute to these absolutely beautiful beings and maybe even a tribute to your pet snake.
Below you have some very cool snake tattoos to get you inspired.
