Gecko Tattoo – Meaning + Symbolism

Gecko Tattoo meaning – just like the lizard tattoos, the gecko tattoos have the following meanings: mobility (like an octopus), agility (like a horse), flexibility (like a jellyfish), intelligence (like a foo dog), fertility (like an arrow), etc. One thing about tattoos to remember – before getting a tattoo, make sure you need/want that tattoo. Most/some people regret getting so many/tattoo, yet they do everything to remove them. If that’s not your case, here are some gecko tattoo designs:

Gecko Tattoo symbolism:

  • Autotomy symbol: one of the reasons most people get gecko/lizard tattoos, is because these creatures have a fantastic “power” – autotomy (they get rid of the tail when they are in danger, afterwards growing the tail back). This is a good way to get rid of predators, while growing back their tail in the near future. If you are anything like this gecko, maybe it’s time to get this type of tattoo.

Gecko Tattoos on celebrities – I don’t know about any celebrity with Gecko/lizard tattoos. If you happen to know about one celebrity (or even you), please share the name/names with us.

Gecko Tattoo Placement ideas – on your ankle, behind your ear, on your foot, on your hip, on your leg, etc. In my opinion, not the location is the most important (altough for most people is), but the meaning/symbolism and the design. If you like the design and the meaning, the placement is not that important.
