50 Majestic Whale Tattoo Designs

The whales are the largest mammals in the world, but despite their gigantic size, they are gentle and intelligent animals. People became fascinated by these beautiful creatures from the oldest times. In tattoo art, whale tattoos have grown in popularity in recent years due to their multiple and positive meanings.

Depending on the cultures and legends, whales represent a symbol of longevity and divine justice. They were a source of food, but also a powerful totem and a spiritual guide, helping the survival of the human race, both physically and culturally. In various cultures, whales and dolphins were associated with divine powers and perceived as superior beings, funerals being organized for the stranded ones.

A whale tattoo can have multiple meanings, symbolizing usually virtues like power, intelligence, and gentleness, but also embodies spiritual beliefs and a peaceful life.
