Leopard tattoos

Leopard Tattoos - The leopard 'kanji' and the leopard image are tattoo designs that makes a strong masculine statement, one that symbolizes strength, speed, courage and endurance.

One of the earliest traces (6,000 B.C.) of leopard worship was discovered in southern Turkey, where an ancient shrine portrayed a fertility goddess riding on the back of a leopard. In ancient Tibet, weaponry was designed with leopard spots and represented female wisdom. Legend tells of the Tibetan poet-saint Milarepa changing into the beautiful snow leopard in front of a great cave. In Ancient Rome, the leopard was feared by gladiators and the enemies of Rome, who were thrown into the amphitheatres to do battle with the leopard.

Leopard tattoo designs The strength and power of the African leopard represents the masculine qualities of the hunter. It also symbolizes social order and stability. Wearing the leopard skin was traditionally reserved for royalty and symbolized power and wealth. In some regions, the leopard was a powerful totem animal, most infamously with a cult that believed that by eating the flesh and blood of their victims they could be transformed into leopards. These 'leopard men' terrorized villages with ritual killings using a metal-pronged weapon that simulated the leopard's slashing, gashing and mauling.

The leopard was first thought to be the offspring of the lion and the panther, and not a separate species. Wherever it has appeared on the earth, its power, strength and grace has been viewed with fear and wonder. From the earliest civilizations, the leopard has appeared in legends and myths as a creature representing either evil or the sacred.

In parts of Africa, the bond between leopard and human was portrayed in secret ceremonies that involved drinking the animal's blood -- after which the animal was released back into the wild. This may still be practiced today. (We'd welcome any first-hand accounts.)
