26 Bewitching Medusa Tattoos

Medusa tattoos are not exactly mainstream, as they refer to an antique myth and are often confused with Eve and horror tattoos.
But you can cross the path of many tattoo lovers with Medusa tattoos, and they are often very impressive and well executed.
In Ancient Greece mythology, Medusa was a female monster with great powers, especially those of changing men into stone with just one look. Beheaded by hero Perseus, she ended on the shield of goddess Athena. Her main feature is of course her hair made of snakes, which make her an interesting and attractive tattoo design. Medusa tattoos symbolize a protection against Evil and also the power of feminity. So, maybe it is not a good idea to show yours on a first date, ladies, unless your admirer has got some sense of humor !
But no need to be a feminist to get some Medusa ink, as it is original. The concept is tickling your curiosity ? Then check these 26 examples of Medusa tattoos.
