Snake Tattoos

Snakes are a very popular choice for those looking to get a tattoo, and much of that has to do with the variety of symbolism associated with serpents.  In many cultures, snakes represent rebirth due to the fact that they shed their skins and start over with a fresh one. In other places around the world, serpents represent romantic passion and fertility.  However, there are definitely some darker things associated with snakes; many times in Western cultures, snakes are thought to be vindictive and vengeful, possibly a result of their venomous qualities. In Christianity, the snake is a symbol of sinful temptation. Snakes can be a symbol of protection and assertiveness, or a metaphor for a sly person. This versatility in meaning leads to many different kinds of people to get snake tattoos.
