Lion Tattoo

Roaring Lion Tattoo

A roaring lion is an animal to be respected and feared. It is a symbol of Power and Authority and a sign that you aren’t a person to be taken lightly. Roaring lions are born leaders, gifted fighters, and, in a crunch, are the persons who can best guide the group out of danger. According to the tradition, a lion whelp was still-born but brought to life by the roar of his father. The whelp later went on to create and lead the tribes of Israel. The symbolism shows that the word of the Divine (represented by the roaring Lion) has the power to breathe life into weakest being (the whelp) and transform him into a force to be reckoned with. A Roaring Lion Tattoo expresses to the world that you aren’t a pushover and that a beast lies underneath the surface, primed and ready to strike.

Aside from the basic verbal symbolism of the lion, there are some deeper meanings connected to them as well.

Lion tattoos have been placed on men throughout history. Those in Asia, Africa, India and the Middle East have put great emphasis on the lion tattoo for many centuries. Lions have always been known as the king of the jungle and this status portrays great power. I think this has always been the big draw about the lion tattoo. If you think about it, the lion can also be a symbol of a religious nature. King of the Jungle – King of Kings.

Ancient Civilizations

The lion has been portrayed for many years in ancient cultures, legends, mythology, astrology, literature, movies, and much more. In a few ancient civilizations, lions were owned by kings and royalty. The lion was a symbol of power to the people of the king’s power and strength. In an interesting contrast, in Roman mythology, the lion is associated with love.

The lion was also symbolic to the Egyptians—they often portrayed two lions with their backs to one another. These statues represented balance, which was very important to the Egyptians. They would usually place these statues outside of sacred structures. The Egyptians believed in balance, such as sunrise/sunset and east/west—their lion statues represented this all-important balance.
