Poseidon tattoo can be a cool way to show your love for the sea. It is a good material for a more noticeable, bigger and dramatic tattoo.
In Greek mythology, Poseidon is the god of the sea, water and waves. He is almost always being incredibly powerful and confident. As one of the original three titans, he is a brother to Zeus and Hades. Like the ocean, Poseidon is moody, either peaceful or raging, representing the two extreme dualities of personality.
For the Greeks Poseidon was a god that could control their fate. He was respected highly by those who spent most of their time on the water. He could bring fair weather and good winds to those that gave him honor, so many motifs exist that represent Poseidon as both a giving and unforgiving god.
The artists portray the Poseidon as a strong aged man with curly hair and a beard, sometimes with a toga. Symbols associated with Poseidon for example are: the bull, dolphin, fish, horse and the Trident.
A trident stands for power, and its three flames stand for the past, present, and future. This tattoo can have meanings about finding yourself, finding a will to learn, as well as spending time reflecting on your past, or your future actions.
A Poseidon tattoo in short can represent many things including great power, strength, a connection with water and the sea. So if you love spend a lot of time near water, love ocean life, or you’re just a big fan of Greek mythology, you should clearly consider a Poseidon tattoo.
