25 Irresistible Panda Tattoos

jentheripper in Tattoo Ideas

Panda bear is one of the most popular animals, and indeed, panda tattoos are starting to be very popular too.

This peaceful black and white animal is looking like a cute teddy bear. Also called giant panda, it is mostly living in China (and zoos). Very social and eating vegetals (especially bamboo, even if it is an omnivore), it is a very positive symbol of Asian zen philosophy, of respect toward Nature, vegetarianism and cuteness. With its mix of white and black furs, it reminds of the Yin and the Yang. Panda tattoos are a great way to express serenity and harmony. In Asian culture, they are also lucky charms. But these meanings are not what makes panda tattoos so popular, even if they are the icing on the cake... Pandas have become very popular in contemporary art, especially popular one. It is a "kawaii" symbol par excellence, and you can find many cartoonish pandas in fashion, decoration, etc, coming from Japan. But beside its adorable reputation, what you need to remember is that it is a protected animal, and one of the endangered species. Nature lovers often ink the panda logo of the World Wide Fund (WWF), an international organization which protects the environment. Love the panda bears, but respect and protect them too! If pandas are melting your heart so much they deserve a place of honor in your body, find some inspiration and cuteness overload in this selection of irresistible panda tattoos...
