Different religions, countries and cultures treat and see elephants as symbols with different meanings. In Asia, elephants are somehow treated as the god of success while in Africa some treat them as tourist attraction creatures. For such reasons, small elephant tattoos have different meanings depending on your religion and culture. However, one fact remains that such small tattoos are beautiful and attractive.
Humans have an opportunity to learn a lot from the character of an elephant. How they carry their weight no matter how heavy acts as a sign of hard work. With a well-designed, carefully planned and placed in the right place on your body, a small elephant tattoo acts as a universal symbol of good luck, divinity, loyalty as well as strength. Apart from beauty, elephants are also a sign of empathy, compassion, memory and closely connected to Buddhism where a white elephant was used for incarnation purposes. A small white elephant tattoo can also make a wise choice, especially when a visible commitment is not your option.
