Inside: Elephant Tattoo Ideas full of Wisdom & Soul

Elephants never forget, and their old age gifts them with admirable wisdom. Humans can learn so much about life, solitude and love when studying how this ancient mammal carries their weight no matter how heavy, with such remarkable grace and beauty.

Elephant Tattoo

Not only does an elephant represent memory, empathy and compassion, there is a strong connection of the species to Buddhism, as the Buddha selected the rare white elephant for his incarnations. The white elephant symbolizes both wisdom and fertility, making it a beautiful choice for a maternal design. Granted white tattoos will fade over time, this may be a wise choice if you don’t want visible commitment.

For lovers seeking a couple of tattoo designs who would rather forgo name or wedding ring designs in fear of bad luck or jinx their union, the stately elephant symbolizes both fidelity and loyalty- two key elements in any successful union.
