- Adam and Eve Tattoo Meaning
According to some traditional texts, God or Yahweh is the creator of the first being, Adam. At that time, the earth was still null and void. Adam was a creation of earth’s dust and breathing “into his nostrils the breath of life.” He was permitted to enter the Garden of Eden to live in and tend to. However, he receives orders with a penalty of death of the eats the forbidden fruit. That is the fruit from the “tree of knowledge of good and evil.”
Not to be alone, God created other animals and birds. However, since it wasn’t enough, he created another being from his own ribcage called Eve. The two were the essence of innocence until Eve gave in to the temptation of the evil serpent. Adam followed her steps and also ate the forbidden fruit.
After that, they both recognized their nakedness and covered themselves with fig leaves. Sooner enough, God proclaimed their individual punishments. Eve’s punishment was pain during childbirth and subordination to man. Adam’s punishment was stooping down to an ill-fated spot with which he must sweat and toil for his nourishment.

You can also get it for purely aesthetic purposes. Another reason for getting an Adam and Eve is to remember the essence of brotherhood.
