Lizard Tattoos / Meanings and Designs

Lizard Tattoo meaning – the lizard tattoo doesn’t have a lot of meanings, but I can name a few: mobility/agility (because of their tail and their body – like an alligator), escape (mostly because lizards are capable to escape predators by detaching their detail, called Autotomy. Lizards are not the only ones using autotomy. Spiders, octopuses and also bees do the same). Want some cool lizard tattoos for women?

A lizard also means protection (like an eagle), flexibility (like a jellyfish), fertility (like a frog), intelligence (like a bee), etc.

Lizard Tattoo Symbolism:

  • Polynesian and Hawaiian population: around here you can find the Lepidodactylus lugubris (this is a type of gecko lizards).
  • Main types of lizards: Gecko, Chameleon, Monitor, etc. People usually tattoo themselves with chameleons because they want to blend to people around them. Chameleons have a mechanism to change their color to get rid of the predators. Cool, right?
  • Ability to grow the tail: one of the big symbols of the lizard is the ability to grow it’s tail/yet get rid of it using autotomy. This ability is related to protection from the predators – having the ability to get rid of the tail, yet growing a new one is kinda cool. Do you know it takes a couple of weeks for the tail to grow back? If only humans would have the capability to grow back their legs/hands/etc. If only!

Lizard Tattoo Placement ideasbehind your ear, on your forearm, on your ankle, on your neck, yet probably tons of other places. If you can find some celebrities with lizard tattoos, better take a look where their tattoos are placed, yet choose that place for yourself also. New picture:
