People get tattoos, not only for decoration, but also to signify an event or personal belief. In the Mohawk tribe, wolf tattoos indicated a totem-like power and showed an affiliation with that particular tribe.
Roman mythology: the founders of Rome, Romulus and Remus had wolf totem symbols and were believed to have been raised on the milk of a wolf.
Norse mythology: when Odin and Valkyries tasted victory, they used the wolf as their symbol. Celtic mythology: for the Celts, the wolf was a symbol of the power of the moon and several stories abound related to it.


Asian mythology: for several Asian cultures, the wolf was given the status of doorkeeper to the heavens. Christianity gave more importance to the negative attributes of the wolf rather than its positive ones. Despite the basic form of wolf tattoos such as a wolf head, lone wolf, howling wolf or tribal wolf, the design can be manipulated to create any symbolism or idea imaginable, and in fact, should be. Since the beginning, men have noticed the pack characteristics of the wolf, and felt drawn to the loyalty of the animal. When a young man of Indian heritage reached puberty and he felt that the wolf was his totemic animal, he was given a wolf tattoo through the process of pricking the skin and rubbing the spots with ashes.


Tattoos are for life, and need to be carefully considered for more than just the aesthetic value before you get it permanently engraved in your skin. Those blessed with the wolf totem symbol were believed to be very expressive both vocally as well as physically.
