31 Snake Tattoo Designs to Unleash Your Inner Evil


SNAKE TATTOO

Rich in symbolism, the snake tattoo has always been a popular choice. We will explore the cobra tattoo in a different post which can have entirely differently meanings. The snake tattoo most often represents evil, cunningness, temptation and poison, but it can also have meanings such as good luck and life.

The long and slender body of a snake makes it an extremely versatile tattoo, slithering its way into any part of the body, wrapping around limbs or other tattoo elements. It can often be found alongside other creatures to give the tattoo contrasting meanings or to represent the never ending battle of good and evil.

Whether in Japanese, Traditional or realistic styles, the snake tattoo is always a great option for your next tattoo!
