An everlasting sign, the enduring gecko continues to adorn the surfaces of various mediums over many, many lifetimes. When inked across the skin, the bearer will display the incredibly wealth of symbolism inherent to these little creatures.
Innocuous as it may seem, this striking reptile is no less astounding than any of the bigger beasts that have inspired timeless awe all around the world.
A gecko’s most famous feature is the way it can leave behind its tail to distract predators and regrow a new one later on. It’s an indication of amazing resilience, the aptitude to not just survive, but overcome any adversity life may hurl your way.
Those who chose to showcase this creature are favoring the display of grit and determination that can often outclass pure physical power. Not unlike the way geckos can climb straight up glass walls and across ceilings, this strength sometimes manifests in the most inconceivable of ways.
Their regenerative ability makes them the symbols of self-protection and renewal. There is abundant appeal to representing this understanding of continuous personal growth.
Quick in both mind and body, geckos exemplify fantastic instincts and great perceptiveness. Some cultures also believe that it is a sign of good luck to have them call your abode theirs as well.
To have one casually making its home across your skin is an overall sign of intelligence, luck and fortitude. See these remarkable gecko tattoos with new eyes and consider them as proof that just because life can be full of hard knocks, you’re more than able to roll with the punches and come out a winner.
