Dolphin Tattoo Designs

Dolphins are widely recognised as extremely intelligent mammals, rather like humans but in an underwater world. Dolphins are known to have free spirits and are very playful. To most of us, these creatures represent a huge sense of freedom and happiness. It comes as no surprise, then, that dolphin tattoo designs are some of the most popular.

Pisces Tattoos: The Pisces sign of the zodiac is represented by two dolphins, and therefore makes a popular tattoo design for anyone born between February 20 and March 20.

Cultural Significance: Dolphins play a huge role in Celtic belief, associated with the power of water that allows us to rejuvenate. Native Americans see the dolphin as a kind and wise animal, sending messages from deep within ourselves. When we see dolphins in our dreams they are widely regarded as a positive image, bringing with them messages of hope. Chinese philosophy also uses the symbol of two dolphins to represent harmony.

The Popularity of Dolphin Tattoos: This kind of tattoo is extremely popular on women, showing beauty and grace of the dolphin itself. However, dolphins are also popular in a wide range of situations as a way of remaining ourselves of the free spirit that lies within all of us.

If you are a fan of nature, and of water in particular, then choosing a dolphin tattoo design is a great way to represent this side of yourself. They also make the perfect design for those into surfing and water sports!
