Deer Tattoos + Meaning

Deer Tattoo meaningintelligence (like a hummingbird), love (like a Statue of Liberty), peace (like a dove), rebirth (like a starfish), family (like a wolf), survival, etc. Remember – it doesn’t matter what it means for someone else, what it really matters is what it means for you. Don’t just get a new tattoo because it means something for someone else, get a new tattoo because you believe it means something for you.  Do you need some pictures for your next tattoo?

Deer Tattoo symbolism:

  • Christian symbolism: Saint Giles lived many years in the forest only with a deer as a companion. The deer used to give Saint Giles milk. In my opion, the deer is also related with survival – because it helped Saint Giles survive in the forest all by himself. Don’t you think so?
  • Greek mythology: in the Greek mythology the deer is associated with the goddess Artemis. Furthermore, other symbols of her were: the moon, the hunting dog, the deer, yet of course, some arrows. Do you know that her father was Zeus himself?
  • Hindu mythology: like in the Greek mythology, there is a Hindu God related with the deer – Saraswati. This goddess used to take form of a deer. Also, she was associated with a peacock.
  • Slavic mythology: in the Slavic stories, you will also find the deer. The deer with golden antlers.
  • Shinto mythology: deers were supposed to be the messengers of Gods. Kinda interesting, right?
