A tattoo is never something to be taken lightly, always remember that what will be engraved on the skin will stay there forever. Consequently, wise choices should be made. Many people choose a tattoo only for the appearance, but another branch of people does not think so, indeed, often a tattoo is preferred for the meaning.
Family is one of the most important themes in the tattoo world. Our family is our identity. The ink that marks our skin forever represents the same infinite love for our family. There are many ways to convey this bond through tattoos.
Family Tattoos with Groups
Families are often represented by groups. Precisely for this reason a symbology is sought that leads to the idea of family union.
For example, elephants are known for their strong family bonds, particularly with mothers.
An elderly female elephant will remain the mother of a family until she dies or is too weak to continue. They will stay with their family for life. Upon the death of a family member, elephants will always remember that member.
Elephant tattoos represent this strong bond. Elephant families stay together when they travel across the savannah, and hold each other’s tails. Elephant tattoo designs representing family often depict a series of elephants in a queue.
The Family Tree
Tree tattoos also represent family. A single tree has many branches that compose it, only with this symbolism can you make a family tattoo.
Sometimes you can be more specific by adding the names of individual family members written on the branches. If the family tree looks “out of date” to you, you can opt for a diagram.
A family tree diagram uses different shapes and colors to represent particular family members.Some people add a phrase to this tattoo that represents the family itself.
Not all families are very close, do not tattoo the name of someone you have a grudge with because it will only bring you suffering.
