Dog Tattoo Designs

It is true to say that a dog is man’s best friend. Millions of people around the world take joy in having canine companions at home and at work. With this animal’s great characteristics, it’s no wonder why many individuals request dog tattoos. The significance of tattoos of dogs goes several millennia back, before modern times. The Celts, Greeks, Romans and Egyptians perceived dogs to be guardians of other worlds. For example, the Egyptian god Anubis, which bears the head of a jackal, represents the transition of man from life to death. It also represents loyalty, guidance and protection. As for the Celts, dogs signified heroism. In olden times, they trained their dogs to accompany them during war. Because of this, tattoos of dogs were linked by the Celts to virility, persistence and courage. Apart from these characteristics, they also saw dog tattoos as symbolic of healing, because they were related to Sucellus, the god of protection. 

Apart from their ancient symbolism, there are several representations that can be linked to dog tattoos. As has been said, modern tattoos of dogs are commonly associated with obedience, fidelity, intelligence, loyalty and cooperation. They also stand for resourcefulness, protection and assistance. With the multitudes of dogs around the world, you’re sure to find one that you like or that fits your personality.
