50 Cow tattoos (and their meanings)

Cows have always personified the female spirit. They feed not only their own calves but also humans. This is probably why the first human beings considered them sacred. Some ancient cultures, such as those of Babylon, Greece, and Egypt, worshiped gods with cattle characteristics, and in Northern European cultures, the four Rivers of Power came from the udder of Audhumla.

In Buddhism and Hinduism, cows are venerated as symbols of pity and patience. These animals never hurry and take the time to realize each thing. In many native cultures, cows are a status symbol and owning a large herd is equivalent to having the last Bugatti Veyron parked in your garage.

Meaning of cow tattoos

Unlike tattoos of bulls, cow tattoos usually represent motherhood and fertility, but also:

  • Renewal and abundance
  • food
  • Protection

It is not unusual for these drawings to be used interchangeably with those of bulls. For example, cow skull tattoos refer to bull skulls, whose connotations are predominantly male.

Variations of cow tattoos

Cow tattoos are quite rare and tend to have comic elements incorporated in the design. The most popular variations of cow tattoos are:

The tattoos of Hathor

Hathor was the goddess of motherhood, fertility and joy in Ancient Egypt. On many hieroglyphs, she is represented as a woman with a head and cow horns. In some drawings, a golden sun has been depicted between its horns. Hathor tattoos are generally popular with women who identify as nurturers.

Cow tattoos on the navel

These tattoos are a simple expression of your rebellious and humorous side and have no real spiritual meaning. For many, navel tattoos are primarily a provocative hint of humor, a kind of convention finger.
