Beautiful Bison Tattoo Ideas That Aren't Basic. Photo of abstract colorful bison.

I will admit it; bison tattoo ideas were way cuter than I ever thought possible. So you can imagine my surprise when I found a few ideas that I may even have to get for myself. I never thought that I would be this kind of a person, but they are so cute and stoic; how could I not be?

How Much Will This Cost?

A bison tattoo could cost anywhere from $100-$1000, depending on a wide variety of factors. Every tattoo artist has different rates, and I don’t fully know what kind of tattoo you are going to get.

The only way that I could give you an estimate for your tattoo as if I sat next to a tattoo artist who could quote me for you. Since I do not have this, I am afraid you are going to have to brave social interaction and ask your artist what they think.

How much will their work cost for the piece you are asking for? These are all important things to know before sitting down in that tattoo chair.

Will a Bison Tattoo Hurt?

Yes, your bison tattoo is going to hurt. I wish I could change this, but alas, I am one of the few that think tattoo pain is a necessary part of the process.

Otherwise, it would be too easy, and everyone would do it. You have to earn your tattoos! At the same time, if this is your first and you are really nervous, then I recommend bringing some numbing spray if your tattoo artist doesn’t have any.

This will effectively numb the area, so you don’t have to deal with super intense pain for the entire time. It has been a big help to me in my longer sessions. Remember not to feel bad if you need to use a little more help when you are getting your tattoo. You got this!

Bison Tattoo Meaning

Your bison tattoo has a deeper meaning beyond the fact that you simply love bison. If you are a sucker for symbolism, then you need to read this next part. According to this article,

The iconic Buffalo has numerous symbolic meanings in various settings. Some Buffalo and Bison symbolism includes manifesting our desires, the Earth element, bravery, kindness, strength, and respect. Buffalo Spirit walks a sacred path, knowing the planet is truly a holy space and living creature. All things under Father Sky and on Mother Earth connect through Buffalo Medicine. When Buffalo travels with you, remember to live in gratitude and stay true to yourself. Honor the gifts the Universe bestows, and the lessons Buffalo teaches.

I hope this message connected with you and made you even more inspired to get your bison tattoo! I know that it inspired me.
