Goat / Ram tattoo designs Goat Tattoo Designs - Virile, lustful and cunning, the goat has stirred the human imagination for millennia. Strong sexual connotations surround the goat - horns and erect members - turning it into a symbol of male potency, but also female fecundity and nurturing. As an animal totem, the goat's sharp horns symbolize perception. It represents practicality and stability, encouraging balanced perspective. Patience, honest ambition and determination are also symbols of the goat.

In the Chinese Zodiac, the goat and ram are interchangeable. Under this sign, the goat/ram is the symbol of perseverance and sensitivity. Those born under this sign are said to be stoics, keeping their feelings to themselves. Except for the knack of always getting off on the wrong foot with people, the goat can be charming company. They are elegant and artistic but the first to complain about things. Goats are advised to put aside their pessimism and try to be less dependent on material comforts. Goats make good actors, gardeners, and beachcombers.

The goat's rampant sexual nature became associated with the Greek god, Pan, and his friends the satyrs, part human, part beast, and unabashedly and visibly ready for sex. Ancient bronze statues depict these mythological creatures in all their male splendour. Other Greek perspectives show the she-goat as a generous and nurturing mother - the very one that suckled the infant Zeus. The goat was called Amalthea, and her horn became known as the famous 'cornucopia' of abundance. Capricorn is the constellation of the goat, the one beloved by the infant Zeus.

The goat has also come to represent a destructive nature. It was one of the three creatures - lion, serpent, goat - that together constituted the fire-breathing entity, Chimera, in ancient Greek mythology.

In Nordic culture, two powerful goats - thunder and lightning - pulled the chariot of the Nordic deity, Thor. The goat is most impressive in winter - mating season - and its image appears in Scandinavian yuletide art and folk rituals. In Hindu mythology, Mother Nature is depicted as a goat. Also, Kali, the goddess of destruction, is sometimes portrayed as a black goat. Today, the ritual sacrifice of the goat to Kali is still practiced in parts of India.

Not all cultures appreciated the goat's lusty virility, the Hebrews for instance, who thought the creature lewd. Christianity also came to view the goat's antics in a negative light, turning it into a symbol of lust and impurity. In time, the animal became associated with Satan, perhaps because of its tendency to devour and thereby destroy almost anything, confirming its reputation as a device of the Devil. In fact, an upside down pentagram was thought to be the mark of Satan or the devil because its shape is so reminiscent of a goat's head, the five points representing ears, horns and muzzle.
