When people choose elephant tattoos, they often do so because of the majestic beauty of these creatures. Elephants throughout history have been depicted as animals that are gentle, emotional, loyal, and smart. With that, people who think that they themselves have these qualities or value those qualities in others may choose to have this animal’s likeness tattooed on their bodies. These tattoos can be big or small, letting a person choose the ideal place on his or her body to have this design placed.
Someone who wants to have a realistic and large elephant drawn on the body may choose to have the tattoo done on his or her back. This part of the body lets the tattoo artist draw a large, majestic-looking creature that perhaps has its ears unfurled and its tail swinging behind it. The space allotted on the back will let the artist draw this design without running out of area or having to cut important details out of the graphic.
However, people can also choose to have this tattoo drawn on their arms, wrists, or the top of their feet. In fact, some people who are engaged to be married may choose this area to have their elephant tattoo placed. In this instance, the elephant may represent loyalty and devotion, as well as good luck.
