190 Deer and doe tattoos (and their meaning)

Who does not remember the classic Disney movie, Bambi, who tells the adventures of an adorable little fawn with a white tail? But Bambi's journey is just one of the many chapters in the long history of our fascination with these creatures, whose grace and beauty have captivated the imagination of humans since the dawn of civilization.

The drawings of deer, elk and other large forest animals found in the caves date back to the times when Neanderthal men were still on this earth. The native tribes of North America spent a lot of time studying the behavior of these beautiful animals to understand the world around them. Soon, these graceful creatures gained important status in the stories and legends of native peoples.

Some neo-pagans and followers of the Wiccan religion (a natural religion and polytheist of modern witchcraft whose central deity is a goddess-mother and claiming as their origin pre-Christian pagan religions of Western Europe) believe that seasonal changes can be attributed to the Celtic and horned god of the forests, Cernunnos and the goddess-mother. The death of Cernunnos causes the death of the forests and therefore, announces the winter. Spring can only come back when Cernunnos resurrects and fertilizes the mother goddess Brighid. Unfortunately, Christians see Cernunnos as Satan because of his prominent woods; an association that dates back to the early days of Christianity in the British Isles.

Tribal tattoos of deer

The most popular designs of tribal tribal tattoos include motifs from Celts or natives of North America, but these are not the only elements of tribal tribal tattoos. Tribal patterns have spiritual meanings in their native regions and, when combined with this majestic animal, tribal tattoos of deer can represent a large number of meanings depending on the kind of animal represented. A tribal doe tattoo will represent maternal love, kindness and a deep connection with nature, while a deer will symbolize male virility, fertility, power and strength.

Tattoos of deer antlers and deer skulls

In Celtic culture, Cernunnos is a pagan god charged with protecting the forest. He is depicted as a man with wild hair wearing deer antlers. Cernunnos is also the god of lust and fertility, which may explain why deer antlers symbolize male virility and fertility. This is why the coats of arms and coat of arms of many old noble families, cities and countries of Europe (such as Dotternhausen, in Germany) include this drawing. Tattoos of deer antler or deer skulls are suitable for strong and virile persons.
