Wolf tattoo meaning
Wolves have survived in difficult places for tens of thousands of years. They are intelligent and skillful hunters who rarely hunt alone .
The wolf plays an important role in mythology, literature, movies, legends and stories like “Little Red Riding Hood” or “The Three Little Pigs”.
Whether portrayed as good or bad, wolves always have a powerful image.
In North America, Native Americans viewed the wolf as a totem animal or spirit sent to guide us in life, symbolizing loyalty and perseverance . In legends, the wolf has great powers given by the Great Spirit. Wolves also have the power to transform into human beings.
Wolves are strongly associated with the family . The fact of living and hunting in packs ensures their survival. The pack also gives them a territorial advantage over other predators. A wolf mates with only one mate as long as the mate is alive. Because they mate for life, and because the entire pack will help care for Cubs, wolves are also known as caring parents. So, a wolf tattoo symbolizes strong family ties and great loyalty.
