Owl Tattoo Designs and Meaning

Owl Tattoo meaning – an owl is related to the following meanings: wisdom (mostly in the Western culture. The goddess of Wisdom also has an owl symbol), protection (like a lighthouse), intelligence, singing (perfect for singers, such as Justin Bieber for example), success (like a koi fish), prosperity (like a fish hook), sorcery (like Santa Muerte) / evil (in the Uto-Aztecan culture), strong (like an anchor), beautiful (like a geisha). It’s a tattoo that’s good for both men/boys and girls/women. They are also called the “Goddess of the night”, so they are related to dark/black. Being an animal with wings, the owl also means freedom (like a dandelion or a guitar). Here are a couple of pictures:
