Pegasus and Unicorn Tattoos

If you are looking for tattoo designs that wrap magic, mystery, beauty and imagination all into one, then Pegasus’ and unicorn tattoos may be just what you are searching for. Regularly drawn amidst clouds, stars and rainbows, these beautiful creatures bring fantasy and power to the designs of which they are incorporated. Although there are many variations of Pegasus and unicorn tattoos available today, the majority of these designs are chosen by women. More masculine Pegasus and unicorn tattoos incorporate these beings in battle with other mythological creatures. Whether a full fledged battle or a simple tribal-like graphic, these images reveal the imaginative child within those who choose to bare them.

Both the Pegasus and unicorn both have muscular horse-shaped bodies and are able to take flight with the use of their large wings. With the only difference being a single horn on the forehead of the unicorn and the histories of which they came, these mysterious creatures are always present when portraying environments based on ideal perfection, fantasy and magic. With a gentle nature and calming sense of being they are commonly depicted drinking among a quite lake or flying among fluffy white clouds. Pegasus and unicorn tattoos are generally full of color. Although their bodies are normally white or black, it is their surroundings that bring a playful life to the overall design: blue clouds, yellow suns, purple wings, multi-colored rainbows – the possibilities are endless.

Pegasus Tattoos
“Pegasus,” in Greek mythology, formed from the blood of Medusa’s neck when her snake-baring head was chopped off with a sword. Born with the body of a horse, he would eventually be honored by Zeus who would give him a special stable and the job of holding his thunderbolts. On the day of his death, Zeus transformed Pegasus into a starry constellation for all to see for eternity.

Unicorn Tattoos
The unicorn is a legendary figure that was originally portrayed as with a horse-like body, a billy-goat beard, the tail of a lion and cloven hooves. It is said that a unicorn was only tamable by a virgin. Female unicorns were white and stark black unicorns with orange manes and tails were males. Unlike the Pegasus, the unicorn is not mentioned in Greek mythology. They are instead revealed in accounts of history from Greek writers who were said to have discovered them in India. They eventually became known as a symbol of chaste love and faithful marriage and were believed to have healing powers through the single, spiraled horn located in the center of their foreheads.
