The devil is as old as divinity, according to the legends, and has many colorful stories surrounding him. There are many depictions of the devil in different countries. But one thing is certain, the devil is the worst part of us. He embodies our darkest aspects, and often plays with our minds. No wonder Devil Tattoos are popular among those daring to take on the might of the devil.
The stories and myths that have grown up around the devil speak of all his ill-doings. In ancient stories, he is seen as armed with a pitchfork, with horns on his head. His feet are cloven, like goat’s hooves, giving him a very mysterious look. This is how he is portrayed in many tattoos. Usually bright red, the color of passion and extreme emotions, is used to paint the devil. A cartoon depiction of the devil usually has a fun look. The eyes may be drawn big and round, with the tail sticking out stiffly. There is an arrow at the end of the tail, pointing the path towards hell. Tattoos with the devil often have a sinister look, and the face is shown with a mouthful of fierce fangs. Here is a look at some cool tattoos featuring the devil.
