In the forest, the king is the stag with the biggest antlers. Yes, size does matter in the animal kingdom, and humans have soon used animals metaphors to represent their values. Thus, deers are a symbol of majesty, power and wisdom. 

With their imposing look and tree-looking antlers, they symbolize Nature and many legends as well as modern representation (from animation movies to brand logos) are using it to celebrate life. A stag or deer tattoo is a powerful tattoo, mixing elegance and badassery.

If you are wanting something a little darker, deer skulls are for you. They are making very cool and edgy designs, explaining why they are quite trendy right now. Antlers alone are also an interesting twist. The symbol of fertility and male virility, they were a strong symbol in ancient cultures such as Celtic one. Wearing antlers is a sign of superior knowledge of life, connection with the divine ... and sexual power!

So, how do you like your stag and deer tattoo? Cute, mystical, dark or just noble ?
