Tattoos are one of the most versatile types of body artworks. It is worth mentioning that frog tattoos are an adorable tattoo design. The first thing that often comes to mind when you hear the word frog is the color green. A great thing about frog tattoos is that they could take any symbol, design, and style. For example, there’re many frog tattoos that are very elegant in nature.
They are quite popular and most you might have seen the tattoo of a frog without noticing. Also, keep in mind that frog tattoos are not only highly symbolic, but they are also very cute, and fun.
In most cases, they’re often displayed as armbands, on the ankles, lower back, shoulders, chest and upper back.
Despite the several different ways you can draw frog tattoos, they could also mean a number of things to different people. Although their most common depictions are often the frog on a lily pad or the famous red-eyed tree frog, keep in mind that tribal frogs are also growing immensely in popularity these days.
It is worth mentioning that tribal frogs are representative of a deep connection with the elements, growth, change, as well as transformation. You can ink a peace frog with the beautiful wings of an angel in order to closely resemble the artwork of various hippies from the 60s. It is worth mentioning that these frogs are also symbolic of peace, tolerance, and love.
On the other hand, the Celtic frog tattoos tend to get their main inspiration from Celtic tradition. These tattoos represent restoration and healing.
Dating far back to ancient Egyptians, Heket was the revered Egyptian frog deity. She was an important fertility goddess known for breathing life into all newborns. On the other hand, in many Native American tribes, the frog is considered the symbol of change and transformation. Metaphorically, transformation enables the frog to walk in two different worlds. And through incredible self-evolution a frog emerges as the victor of water and it becomes very adept at land life as well as an adult.
As a result, sticking with this key theme, it’s easy to see and understand why many individuals who have experienced a major change in their life are often drawn to frog tattoos. The frog is also a symbol of fertility in various cultures.
Also, keep in mind that Tsimshian folks have long believed strongly that a frog is the link between humans and Mother Earth. The Mayans and Aztecs especially associated the frog with rain – and this equates to growth in agricultural in that part of the world.
To these people, the frog was considered a rain bringer. And note that many legends even claim that the frog was a rainmaker. And as a result, the frog in this regard was symbolic of life – in particular, symbolic of the healthy continuation of life.
