Dolphin Tattoo Designs - Tattoos For Both Men and Women

Dolphins have always been a favorite animal tattoo because of the friendliness and the warmth that it exudes. It is a loving and adorable creature that the mariners worldwide considered it as their protector and guide in the ocean. They are not actually a fish, but a member of the mammal family and one of the only few that are blessed with such playfulness and compassion for the humans.

For the ancient Greeks, dolphins are regarded as symbols of both the divine and wisdom since Apollo himself took the form of a dolphin. As a tattoo design, it can represent one's love for the ocean and everything related to it such as surfing, sunny beaches and pretty women. It can also symbolize a fun, carefree personality as how the dolphin itself is portrayed. A dolphin tattoo design can even mean freedom, lightheartedness and happiness.

Dolphin tattoos can be represented in a variety of ways and they are equally favored by both men and women. They can be inked in colors with shades such as blue, green and gray. They can also be tattooed in plain black and combine with other symbols such as waves or surfboard. They can be highlighted with tribal lines or Celtic art just by adding these touches. There are also tat enthusiasts who has dolphin tattoos as armbands or anklets.

Dolphins are also flexible and adaptable as a tat design as they look great whether inked small or big especially if a skilled tattoo artist does the work. They can placed almost anywhere on the body - on the arms, upper back, lower back, foot, ankle rib or lower stomach.
