Inside: Fresh cow tattoo ideas with flowers and fun.
Cow tattoo popularity is on the rise, and I can totally understand why. When you take the time to look at them, cows are truly adorable. If you think about it, cows have been such a big part of our lives since we were children. Ever heard of milk? I mean come on.
This animal has given us so much vitamin D and calcium I don’t think our bones will ever be able to thank them enough.
Even with this, I still feel that cows tattoos are limited to that of people who work on farms when that doesn’t have to be the case at all!
Did you know that cows hold their own symbols and meanings? In fact, in many religions and cultures, cows are considered to be sacred animals. That’s right!
I think this animal deserves to be learned about in more ways than what kind of vitamins we absorb from it. So without further ado…
- Cows are adult females, male cows are called Steers and the babies are called calves.
- There are over 800 different breeds of cows in the world. Wow!
- All cows are strictly vegetarian, which makes them herbivores. They mainly eat grass and sometimes grains.
- They don’t have any upper teeth. Only bottom ones. Interesting!
- They are social creatures who love company!
- Cows lay down for about 10 hours a day…what a life!
- The first cow came to the U.S in 1611
- There are about 98 million cows in the U.S alone.
- Cows are a part of the Ruminant animal family, which are cud-chewing animals. Other animals that are a part of this family include sheep, giraffes, and deer.
- Cows have 4 digestive compartments in one stomach.
- In the 1850s, nearly every family in the U.S had its own cow.
Cow Tattoo Symbolism & Meanings
Many religions around the globe, including Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism to name a few, consider the cow to be a sacred animal. To them, this animal is the ‘Mother of all gods’ because it provides milk to everyone. It symbolizes life and luck, nourishment and abundance because of the many helpful qualities the cow has to offer.
This animal also brings the message of fertility, positivity, and strength. This is due to the fact that every ‘cow’ is a female.
They birth, create, nourish, and care for others giving strength. So If any of these qualities resonate with you then a cow tattoo may be up your ally!
