Frog Tattoos – Meanings and Symbolism

Frog Tattoo meaningrebirth (like an wolf), good luck (like an anchor), good fortune (like a compass), purity (like a dragonfly), dreaming (like a mermaid), healing (like a caduceus), fertility (like a bee), harmony (like a peace sign), poison (because the toxic skin of the frog), happiness (like a bat), success (like a koi fish), transformation, etc. But, most important, it doesn’t really need to mean something. It has to mean something for you, not for us, not for your friends, not even for your neighbour. It it doesn’t mean something for you, don’t do it! Removal is complicated, but not only that. It costs a lot of money and time. But if you really want the tattoo, go ahead, do it. But before that, read about the frog symbolism as well.

Frog Tattoo symbolism:

  • Greek symbolism: you probably don’t know, but the frogs played an important role in the Greek/Rome mythology/culture. One of the main meanings for the frog in the Greek culture were fertility and harmony. Somehow Zeus is related to frogs too.
  • Chinese symbolism: just like in the ancient Celtic culture, in the Chinese culture the frogs are associated with healing. Also, the frog is associated with good fortune/good luck. In the Haidas culture (from North America),  the frog is also a symbol of both magic and healing. In the Panama culture the frogs are also associated with good luck. Not every frog was associated with good luck, but only one – the Panamanian golden frog. You probably don’t know, but this type is frog is a national symbol in Panama. There is also a national frog day in Panama.
  • Egypt culture/symbolism: just like in the Greek/Rome mythology, the frog is associated with fertility and life in the Egypt mythology. There was also a goddess like a frog, named Heqet. She was a woman with a frog head. She was related to fertility and life. In many cultures the frogs are also associated with transformation – like the Frog Prince and magic spells (you kiss the frog and the Prince comes out and he’s super beautiful). You know the meaning/stories.
