Vampire tattoos

Vampire tattoo designs Vampire Tattoo Designs - The Vampire has come a long way from the original 1922 silent film cinematic portrayal of "Nosferatu" (an adaptation of the Bram Stoker novel, Dracula), as a single-mindedly evil blood-sucker to today's cool, edgy, good-looking night stalker with a conscience. Once bad, he's now 'bad!' Once a symbol of death - well, the vampire is still that. Now death, and the Vampire, from Buffy the Vampire Slayer's attraction to the series vampire character of Angel, to the Wesley Snipes Blade Trilogy, to the novel and film, Twilight, are the very heights of popular culture cool.

Fascination with the vampire myth runs deep, and let's not forget that that's what it is; an Eastern European myth and a legend. For many centuries in Europe, the folklore myths were a way of explaining away the plagues and diseases that a family member brought into the house. Early vampire myth explained the curse of contagion that seemed, literally, to 'suck out a person's life-blood'. 'The Vampire' was indeed a symbol of death.

Today's vampire, however, has had a make-over, so that a vampire showing up in a dream - or taking on a vampire tattoo - may reflect more positive associations. Still, it could suggest something in your life that is 'draining' you, or it could reveal a desire for immortality, or a 'thirst' for knowledge. Some of the most graphic vampire tattoos depict female vampires, which have decidedly sexual overtones. And Vampires are the stock in trade look for those in the Goth (short for Gothic) lifestyle. Pale skin, bordering on the bloodless, scarlet lips and an affinity for all things black - from hair to fashion - are the signature look of the Goth.

Vampirism took off as a cult in Slavic societies around the 15th century, where it was a metaphor for those 'outside the Christian faith'. The metaphor expanded to include aristocrats who sucked the blood of the peasant by working him to death, stealing his daughters and depriving him of land. With the arrival of the Industrial Revolution in Western Europe, vampirism was attributed to the cruelty of industrialists who stole the livelihoods of the workers, put their young children to work in factories and drew off their life-blood, leaving them pale and anemic looking.

The vampire later became a popular character in Victorian literature, and a symbol of mystery and sexuality. Bram Stoker (1897) created Dracula, an exotic and romantic aristocrat of foreign origin. All that neck-sucking of bare-necked women, all that close body contact, it could be read without offending the sexual morals of stuffy old Victorian England. But this literary vampire was taking on new depths, as a character capable of sorrow, of lamenting lost loves and of 'living' in despair.

Eventually, the vampire crossed the Atlantic Ocean and spread his cloak over America. In the 1920's, a stage production of Bram Stoker's Dracula turned the vampire into a symbol of the sexual...
