Horses are a very precious animal and valued by many people, in fact it is the favorite animal of many people. Horses are an animal that exudes elegance on all four sides: the way they walk, trot and run. In fact, it can be seen that it has been a highly valued animal, especially if we look at the fact that caves were already represented often and it is that, for many years ago, it has been an animal that has always appeared as a companion of man.
Horses, in addition to being an elegant animal as mentioned above, is also a faithful animal. That is why there are many people who choose to get this animal tattooed, those who value some characteristics such as fidelity: this can be used in two fields, fidelity within the couple and in terms of friendships. Therefore, in both cases it may be a good idea to tattoo this animal.
Another element that is attributed to these animals is the feeling of freedom, since the image of a trotting horse is always associated with the desire for freedom and to do what one wants. They also represent nobility, power, strength, work, etc. They are very important values for many people and it is that they go along the lines of humility and hard work to overcome the different obstacles that life puts in our way.
Some variations of this animal are the unicorn or pegasus tattoos; which have similar meanings, however, they have a more childish component, that is, they refer to magical worlds full of imagination and fantasy, so that a person who opts more for these meanings can more easily opt for this type of designs more than normal horses.
The way in which they are tattooed, they are usually accompanied by a landscape or directly only the figure of the horse and this is because it is an animal that offers a very specific meaning and does not need other elements that reinforce the message or the information that you want to offer with these designs.
As seen so far, horse designs can be done differently, either in a more generic and traditional way, such as horse designs in black, white and brown tones and, on the other hand, horse designs not so realistic, such as pegasus (the winged horse) or unicorns; both types of horses transport us to a fantasy world and, as mentioned above, the meanings they have may be similar to those discussed above.
The horse is an animal that arouses a lot of sympathy and tenderness. It was the first animal domesticated by man and is linked to the great feats and adventures of many important people in history. Thus, we will find that many people choose this beautiful and elegant animal to decorate their bodies and thus represent aspects such as nobility, courage, strength or battle.
