No doubt that deer is one of the most impressive animals in the world. For many of us, it is associated with grace, beauty, strength and virility. They are inherent part of Native American and Celtic culture. Meanings of the doe and stag tattoos are totally different: maternity, gentleness, grace and a deep spiritual connection with Mother Nature for the first one and masculinity, virility, power and strength for the second one.
It’s no surprise that there are plenty of deer tattoo designs. The most popular include tribal deer tattoo where an image of the animal itself is combined with other elements typical for different cultures and regions. The overall meaning depends on the whole image. There you can also find deer antler and deer skull tattoo designs — inked in different styles, with many other details included (trees, arrows, hearts, birds etc.) they not only look fantastic but also have deep meaning to express exactly what you want to.
