Wolf Tattoos

Representative of “the mysterious,” wolf tattoos have become popular body art selections for both men and women of all ages. They are considered to be a physical sign of intelligence, cunningness, strength, stamina and loyalty. Wolf tattoos are most commonly placed on larger areas of skin such as arms, legs and backs to allow the finer details to bring the piece to life. Most wolf tattoos are monotone in color combining black ink with intricate shading; however, bursts of color can easily be incorporated through the addition of bright yellow moons or deep red blood.

Types of Wolf Tattoos
Lone Wolf Tattoos:
Although a “lone wolf” is a rare occurrence in a real wolf community, those seeing themselves as lone wolves may choose wolf tattoos to symbolize their need for freedom and enjoyment of living an independent life. Lone wolf tattoos are commonly depicted as single wolves howling at full moons.

Werewolf Tattoos:
Werewolves are mythological creatures that are believed to be humans who morph into wolves at night. Myths suggest that those who become werewolves have either been cursed or have been bitten by another werewolf. They possess highly sensitized senses and are believed to be vulnerable to silver bullets. Those choosing werewolf tattoos may be expressing a need to free their inner animal.

Native American Totem Wolf Tattoos:
Native American totem wolf tattoos suggest that those who bare them are good communicators through touch, speech, body language and eye contact. They are passionate, intellectual and loyal beings. These wolf tattoos are frequently represented as “Haida” body art – blocky, abstract drawings of animals commonly seen as carvings on Native American totem poles.

Cartoon Wolf Tattoos:
Wolf tattoos can take many forms including that of whimsical characters. For those who enjoy children’s literature, wolf tattoos relating to Little Red Riding Hood or The Three Little Pigs may be design options to consider. Other cartoon wolf tattoos can portray a wolf playing a guitar, tap dancing or playing poker – the options are practically limitless!

Wolfpack Tattoos
Wolves primarily live in packs containing anywhere from two to over thirty members. This group is lead by both an alpha male and an alpha female. The alphas are not necessarily the largest wolves in the pack. Instead, they may have earned their alpha position with strong attitudes and dominating personalities – traits that may be similar to those choosing wolfpack tattoos. Wolfpack tattoos may also symbolize physical strength, confidence, individuality, loyalty and commitment to family and friends. They commonly feature one wolf dominating the design while several other wolves appear smaller in the background.

Wolf Tattoos Representing Colleges and Universities
Several colleges and universities across North America use the image of a wolf as their official mascots. College students, alumnae and sports fans alike may choose wolf tattoos to symbolize their connection or loyalty to any one of the following colleges:

North Carolina State University (Mr. Wuf and Mrs. Wuf)
University of Nevada, Reno (Alphie)
Arkansas State University (Howl the Red Wolf)
University of New Mexico (Louie and Lucy Lobo)
