20 Rambunctious Rat Tattoos!

While rat tattoos may seem a little strange to some, they actually make some fun and creative ink.
Rats are odd little animals and have some very curious symbolism. On one side of the world rats are held in quite high regards, on the other they are the vermin of the streets. In the west rats are often looked upon as dirty and filthy rodents, commonly linked to the outbreak of the medieval plague called the Black Death. In the east however rats are associated with fertility among other things. People born in the Chinese Zodiac year of the rat are expected to posses the qualities of a rat such as intelligence, creativity, generosity, ambition and honesty. Within the Indian tradition rats are viewed as the vehicle of Ganesha and some rats are seen as the reincarnation of Hindu holy men.
You don't see a rat tattoo everyday and when you do you'll remember it. As realistic or creative as you like a rat tattoo is a bold tattoo that more people should have. If you love Splinter or just like long tailed rodents then these rat tattoos will bring a smile to your face. Rat tattoos are awesome!!
