Werewolf Tattoo symbolism:
- Middle Age symbolism/culture: the werewolves appeared several times in the Middle Ages, mostly in poems. Such poems are: Bisclavret (written by Marie de France), etc. Vseslav of Polotsk (the prince of Polotsk) was considered a werewolf (he was considered a superhuman, capable of moving at superhuman speeds and having superpowers). This happened in the 11’th century. Around that time (and even around the 14’th century), the werewolves is found in folklore in several countries, such as Romania, Hungary, Germany, etc.
- Greek symbolism/culture: Zeus himself transformed Lycaon into a wolf. He did this as a punishment. Also, most people believe/believed that changing yourself into a werewolf is a punishment/even a disease. Also, Greeks believed that if you don’t destroy the corpse of werewolves, they will came back to life.
Do you need some more ideas/pictures?
Werewolf Tattoos on celebrities – I don’t know about celebrities with werewolve tattoos, but I do know about a couple of celebrities with wolf tattoos, such as: Chris Brown, Zayn Malik and others.
Werewolf Tattoo Placement ideas – on your arm, on your chest, on your face, etc. One way I always like to end my articles/posts, is to tell everyone this – besides the meaning, design and the placement idea, one thing is important too – if you really want the tattoo. Some people get tattoos because it’s trendy, but later regret. Don’t be one of those people, get a tattoo only if you want it.
