Lizards, lizards, geckos, chameleons, newts, salamanders, especially exotic animals and, sometimes, difficult to distinguish, and especially, if it is a tattoo. Lizards, lizards, geckos, and chameleons are reptiles; on the other hand, newts and salamanders are amphibians. In the case of the reptiles that we have mentioned, they all belong to the same “clade” (in biology, each one of the branches that group living things that descend from a common ancestor), to which other animals such as the varanos and iguanas also belong. . The varano and iguana tattoos may be more easily distinguishable than the rest.
There are many people who feel animosity or disgust for these types of animals, whether reptiles or amphibians, especially reptiles, perhaps it is that of crawling, moving on the ground, or scales, which can be unpleasant to touch. But there are also many people who are fascinated by these animals, and they, precisely, are the protagonists or towards whom the text is directed.
Tattoos on these little reptiles (also amphibians like newts) have been a fairly common motif ever since people began to adorn their skin. The Maori, Polynesian and Pacific civilizations consider them omens of bad omen, although according to what species, as some of them, such as the green gecko, are especially respected. Elsewhere, such as South America, these animals symbolize their ability to survive and fight to keep going. Many reptiles can lose their tail and regenerate it, which is seen as a metaphor for humans, although things go wrong and there are problems, you have to keep fighting and what is important is the ability to adapt, in reptiles to the environment, in humans , to the vicissitudes that appear in life.
We could not stop talking about hippie culture too, in Ibiza for example, there is a lizard that is larger than we can find on the peninsula and is very common. It has very bright and colorful colors and has become a bit of a banner of the island, along with its pleasant climate, the white color and the calm way of life of its inhabitants. So, Whoever is in love with Ibiza or Formentera, is equally encouraged to tattoo an Ibizan lizard. It will always be better than an ensaimada, don’t you think?
As with many other animal motifs, such as dragons, turtles, sharks, etc., lizard tattoos can be combined with indigenous, tribal or Maori motifs. In fact, it is frequent to find tattoos of that style. On the subject of colors, we find them monochromatic or polychromatic, tattoos on this type of reptiles and amphibians that are polychromatic usually use vivid, intense colors, but closely associated with the medium, colors such as reds, greens, yellows. In the case of monochrome tattoos, most of them are monochrome but the skin serves as a canvas to draw the spots, stripes and scales of these animals.
In my case, I prefer tattoos to be small and in suggestive areas of the body, such as the lower abdomen, the sole of the foot, the ankle, the wrist, the shoulders or on the back just below the shoulders, behind the ear … It is a very personal opinion, because there are large tattoos with these motifs that are really fascinating, we can find them on the leg, on the back, on the chest, on the thighs, etc.
In the world of tattoos, the most important thing is the imagination and feeling good about the chosen tattoo. And surely what you have read gives you some clues.
