An Elephant Tattoo design is generally considered a symbol of good luck. In fact, elephants are often collected by people — like pigs and frogs — because in many cultures these animals are symbols of good fortune. Elephants once ranged widely all over Africa and Asia and as such, they were familiar creatures with legendary and even mythic qualities, due probably in no small part to the awe they inspired because of their immense size and power. Elephant ivory has also always been highly valued and prized and was traded all over the known world since the most ancient of times.

Elephants in Africa and Asia were also associated with Kings, Emperors, Pharaohs, Rajahs and Nobility, and they were used in warfare, playing the role of the first tank. When Hannibal marched his elephants through the Alps to invade Rome, his War Elephants, although not strategically important, had a tremendous psychological effect on the Roman Legionnaires they faced in battle. They must have felt they were facing monsters.
