If there is an animal that takes the palm for superstitions, that is the snake. Popular belief, fueled by religion or culture, has given him prominently as a representation of evil. In addition, and aside from symbolism, it is one of the most feared animals in the world. Is such fame worth it? Well, as in everything, not for everyone. Because its attributes also arouse great curiosity, interest or even praise. For tastes … If you like snake tattoos, to a greater or lesser degree, read on because this is your post it is made for you.
The Bible has played a fundamental role in placing the serpent at the center of evil, since, directly, it has represented the concept of evil with its image. In the paradise where the first man and the first woman, Adam and Eve, lived, it is said that it was the serpent that tricked Eve into eating a fruit from the forbidden tree, that only element that they could not approach, that which condemned them to a life of pain. It is in Genesis where this passage is collected which, perhaps, is the best known in the Bible regarding the serpent. It is the representation of how to fall into temptation, into immediate but dangerous pleasures (drugs, alcohol …) that can become our downfall. Already with the times, this passage has been viewed with suspicion, especially by feminist movements that regret that it was the woman who was to blame for the expulsion from paradise.
Controversies aside, that of the Genesis is not the only book that makes up the Bible where the serpent has been mentioned. In Isaiah’s, the arrival of the Lord was warned, that he would punish the Leviathan serpent with his fierce sword and kill the dragon. And Mateo’s reflects the recommendation of be cunning like snakes and innocent as doves to those who were sent like sheep among wolves.
Seeing passages like this and representations like that of the Virgin treading on the serpent, showing the triumph of good over evil, it is not surprising that we have seen for centuries paintings or sculptures that kept leaving the snake in a bad place. And is that art a time ago was intimately related to religion (in general), was inspired only by it to create the most beautiful works that humanity has ever seen (regardless of the natural).
Already later with the advance of the years and focusing on a more current stage, we must say that we have not managed to separate the snake from its negative halo. There are many examples. Here we will mention a famous one, that of Harry Potter, one of the most successful literary and cinematographic works in history. Harry was from Gryffindor, whose enemy house was primarily Slytherin. Each was represented, respectively, by the lion and … the snake. The greatest torments that Harry had as companions was from that house, his greatest enemy, the one that killed his parents, he had a “reptilian” appearance of a snake and, as if that were not enough, his pet was an implacable “bicha” that he enjoyed eating. innocent.
Not everything must be bad, Sure. Animals behave instinctively and their attitude is determined, in part, by their eating habits. If you don’t want to run into a hungry snake, it is best to take proper precautions.
But if they attract you irreversibly, because they are also cunning animals and expert hunters, then get one tattooed. There are many different species of snakes and it cannot be denied that, despite the fear they instill in us, some are among the most beautiful. Color can go wonderfully tangled, for example, in your calf or arm. That in a calm attitude. You can also choose the fierceness of your chest. You choose but, in the case of snakes, you will surely amaze.
