Wolf tattoos are very popular and considered to be a mainstream tattoo. They can be designed in a variety of different ways and portrayed with different elements and symbols. Just like all animal tattoos, the wolf tattoo represents traits and attributes of the wolf.
A man might befriend a wolf, even break a wolf, but no man could truly tame a wolf.
— George R.R. Martin

The wolf is a very symbolic creature that holds deep meaning for many different cultures throughout history, most notably with Native Americans: to numerous tribes across North America and in other parts of the world, wolves are very powerful and important.

Wolves have survived in harsh locations for tens of thousands of years. They are intelligent and skillful hunters who rarely hunt alone (unless they have been cast out of the pack). Wolves live and hunt in packs, tight-knit family groups that increase their chances of survival.

The wolf plays a part in mythology, literature, movies, legends, and stories like «Little Red Riding Hood» and «The Three Little Pigs.» Werewolves are also a part of our collective consciousness, depicted in many YA and fantasy novels and seen in shows like MTV’s «Teen Wolf.» The werewolf (half human and half man) was also portrayed in Roman mythology, as in the story of Romulus and Remus. Whether portrayed as good or evil, wolves are always powerful, and the same can be said about a wolf tattoo.

Native Americans viewed the wolf as a totem animal or spirit sent to help guide us through life, symbolizing loyalty and perseverance. In legends,the wolf had great powers given by the Great Spirit. Wolves also had the power to change into people.

Like most predators, the wolf is often seen as an evil creature. Ancient Christians said the wolf was a symbol of Satan, and thus a bad omen. Today, probably because humans have fewer interactions with wolves, they no longer fear wolves so much. Wolves are strongly associated with family. Because they live and hunt in packs, they have survived. The pack also gives them a territorial advantage against other predators. A wolf will only mate with one partner while the pair is alive. Because they mate for life, and because the whole pack will help take care of the pups, wolves are also known as caring parents. Thus a wolf tattoo can symbolize tight family bonds.
