Our tattoos always have some special meaning for us. They may represent our personality traits or important periods and persons in our lives. It is no doubt that one of the most popular tattoos are tattoos of wild animals, as their ferociousness and wild nature always attracted people all over the world. That is the reason why a lot of people choose wild animal tattoos. Have you ever wondered which animal is the fastest animal on our planet? We will tell you – it is a cheetah. The cheetah, from the Hindi word ‘Chita’ for ‘spotted one,’ is a large cat that lives in Africa, but it can also be found in some parts of Asia. It is the fastest animal that is capable of reaching speeds up to 70mph.
Throughout history, as far back as 5,000 years ago in Sumeria, cheetahs have been considered exotic and beautiful big cats, and their hides have been a symbol of wealth and kingship.
Their use as images in tattoo also capitalizes on all these qualities, even though cheetahs are often portrayed at rest in a regal pose. When cheetah print tattoos are drawn alone, they are not thought to have some special meaning, but when they are combined with another tattoo, they can have a symbolic meaning.
Humankind was always fascinated with the elegance, beauty, as well as agility of this wild animal. Also, it is one of the most exotic felines on the planet.
There are many different meanings related to cheetah tattoos. If you decide to have this type of tattoo, you have to know that it is going to attract a lot of attention. If you are a person that wants to be in the center of attention, then this tattoo may be ideal for you. Cheetah tattoos came to symbolize:
- Elegance and grace;
- Focus and determination.
Above all, the cheetah tattoo will symbolize your wild nature and agility, which may be hidden under your fragile appearance, so nobody can know how powerful you are.
