Take the time to look at these gorgeous turtle tattoos, from land or from sea...

Turtles are very respected animals. They are often seen as symbols of wisdom, intelligence and the Universe. This prehistorical looking reptile also grows very old, and is in some ancient cultures believed to be immortal. In Asian and Polynesian cultures, turtles have an important spiritual importance.

Turtle tattoos often picture sea turtles because of their influences. With their dynamic appearances, they are more coveted than land turtles, thus the latest are also popular on skins. Colorful, artistic or connected with traditions, turtle tattoos are worth looking at if you too think life shouldn't be about rushing...
