20 Mighty Trident Tattoo Designs And Meanings

Trident tattoo designs are usually related to the strength of the gods. The Trident is a mythological and magical weapon in the shape of a three-pointed spear belonging to the gods of the sea. It is a symbol of power over the seas and waters but it is also associated with thunderstorms.

In Greek mythology, the trident is connected with Poseidon, the god of the sea. Poseidon and his equivalent in Roman myth, Neptune, used the trident to create water sources, but in anger, he struck the earth causing mighty earthquakes, stir up tidal waves, tsunamis, and sea storms.

In Hindu legends, God Shiva used the trident or ‘trishula’ to fight off negativity and evil. The three-pronged sacred weapon represents the deity in his three aspects: Creator, Preserver, and Destroyer. The number 3 has also diverse meanings and significances, commonly said to represent various trinities, like creation, maintenance, and destruction or the past, present and future.

The meaning of a trident tattoo is linked to virtues of the gods and represents magical powers, wisdom, and dominance.
