The serpent, also known as the snake, is one of the most ancient and widely used mythological symbols. The name comes from the Latin serpens, which means “crawling animal” or “snake.” Snakes have been linked to some of humanity’s oldest rituals and symbolize the dual expression of good and evil. This is a perfect reason to have a snake tattoo by itself. In addition, snakes were considered fertility symbols in several cultures. According to Christian belief, Satan (as the serpent) caused the fall by deceiving Eve into disobeying God’s order.
As we can see, it is a universal and complex symbol. With lots of types and lower classifications such as the pythons, cobras etc, it is extremely popular. Having a serpent tattoo on your hand, thigh or ankle can be a very good idea.
