  • Turtle Tattoos Symbolism

    A turtle is considered the embodiment of calmness, stability, balance, patience, and wisdom. Also, a turtle can avoid nearly any possible danger, hiding into its more than a solid shell. All these traits made a turtle tattoo the symbol of inner knowledge, protection, the symbol of recovery. That’s why all these traits of an animal are preferable while reading the turtle tattoo meanings, but not its slowness.

    Turtle tattoo designs can be performed in colors the same as black and grey. It does not influence the quality of a drawing. In both cases, the tattoo has a lot of elegance. A chosen drawing could be placed wherever you decide – arm, leg, chest etc.

    Turtles have amazing ornaments on their shells which are also the reason of the popularity of this tattoo symbol. Besides beautiful esthetical qualities, turtles also are a huge source of an energy. Its essence is mostly connected with their shells.

    Turtles can live on land and in the water. This is the reason why they are connected with two elements – the earth and the water. This animal is also an embodiment of the Moon and immortality of the Earth, beginning of life itself, procreation and eternity.

    Since ancient times, turtles were considered the basis of the whole material world. Ancient Chinese believed that turtles can forecast future. They connected turtles with water, primordial chaos, and the Ying energy. It used to be the symbol of ling life and stamina.

    In Ancient India, people used to worship turtles, as the greatest ancestors. Its shell was an embodiment of the foundation of all things. In Japan, the turtle was the symbol of long life again, luck, support, and sailing.

    Turtle tattoo is one of the strongest charms, granting its owner long life (once again), patience, philosophical attitude towards all troubles and calmness. Long story short, from the one hand there is nothing more valuable than this animal, and from the other hand, there is nothing more adapted and faster than a turtle.
