Medusa Tattoos and Pictures

Medusa Tattoo meaning – one of the meanings of the Medusa tattoo is the “evil” itself. Medusa was evil. She was a monster – she was powerful and with a lot of strength (like a tree). Do you know she was the consort of Poseidon? She is also related to magic (like a dandelion), evil (like an owl) and death (like a stingray) itself. She is also associated with feminine power – the Versace brand logo is a Medusa head. She is also related to beauty (like a giraffe). She is also related to nihilism (this is the antonym of romantic idealism). She also means transformation (because she used to be transformed into a monster from a beauty queen). Do you need some pictures?

Medusa Story – Medusa was one of the three children of Phorcys and Ceto. Altough most of the people believed they should be very ugly, the sculptors initially painted them as both beautiful, but also ugly and terrifying. One of the stories about Medusa is that she used to stone people that attacked her. The Medusa tattoo (beauty and ugly, good and bad) also reminds me of the yin yang tattoos or even the angel and devil tattoos. Here are some more pictures for you:
