Bear Tattoos

Bears are perceived as big, gentle creatures, yet they can turn into ferocious animals with little provocation. Just like their unpredictable moods, bear tattoos have been known to feature several symbolisms and meanings. Ancient Greeks saw tattoos of bears as representations of their goddess Artemis, while the Romans believed bears were connected with the goddess Diana. The bear is represented in astronomy in the Ursa Major, or Big Dipper, constellation. As for the ancient Celtic people, bears were seen as symbols as war.

In the Old Testament, bear tattoos were seen as symbols as evil and cruelty, as bears represented a King of Persia who caused death to his citizens. However, later, tattoos of bears were drawn with positive symbolism, depicting regeneration and reformation. This was inspired by the ancient belief that young bears were born shapeless, and it was up to their mothers to rear and mold them. For modern Russians, the bear continues to be the country’s symbol, and those who get bear tattoos are seen as patriots who treasure their national identity. Designs of this ink can be modified and adjusted to suit your taste and personality. You can opt for a full drawing of a bear, or just his head or claws. Whether you’re looking for a big tattoo or a small one, bear tattoos are great design ideas for people looking for a new-age ink.
