64 Gargoyle Tattoos (And Their Meaning)

The large inclination for gargoyles has become even more accentuated today and more and more people are choosing a gargoyle as a tattoo motif. Their faces with misshapen features are undoubtedly an art and a culture that attracts us!

Gargoyles are imaginary and monstrous beings with quite grotesque physical characteristics. They are related to the beasts and torments of hell and are generally in the form of gigantic sculptures carved in stone. Their appearance is that of animals or humans, or even a mixture of the two, with claws, tails, horns and small wings. These creatures are found on the roofs or sides of Gothic buildings. They were used as gutters and decorations but, beyond this aesthetic and architectural purpose, they were also placed there to scare away demons and evil forces, in accordance with popular beliefs and legends of the century. In Paris and New York, you can see the most popular medieval gargoyles in the world, which have today become a classic tourist attraction in these cities.

Gargoyles can also be seen on certain coats of arms and coats of arms, where they serve as protective symbols. Both men and women often place them on their backs and choose designs in black ink. The tattoo must be faithful to the original image and respect certain characteristic elements such as the demonic aspect, the grotesque, serious expression, the huge wings, the human form and the wrinkles, which are the essence of this creature.
