Many of us consider gorilla as an aggressive dangerous animal — and it is not really right. We and gorillas have much in common, though they don’t look cute — maybe these are reasons to overlook them in tattoo designs. Besides, our brain tends to hide our true identity from us.
Nevertheless, gorilla is a symbol of nobility, wisdom and communicative skills. In wild nature gorillas are very sociable. Their methods of the communication are intricate and they are always aware of each community member. In fact, they do assist both young and elderly mates of their troop — together. This is also a great reminder to us not to forget about our past and our future, being grateful to the first and care about the second one.
Gorilla tattoo can also be a symbol of strong leadership — in wise and reasonable, not aggressive way. Gorilla guides members of the troop with temperance, understanding, compassion and balance. Aggression or ferocity comes out rarely, not on the day-to-day basis. Gorilla tattoo image is associated with a thought that tyrannical leaders will never win respect. The best way to win loyal mates is the way of decency, honesty, and quiet charisma.
And of course we couldn’t forget about gorilla tattoo designs that came to us from the pop culture, like The Gorillaz or King Kong. All the gorilla tattoos can represent different things and have different meanings — especially those from our culture. You are the only one to decide what you want your tattoo to mean.
