Here we have a whole sheet of mermaid tattoos. The three on top that are totally different and them the ones on the bottom that appear to be three versions of the same tattoo in different stages of its completion. Mermaid tattoos are always fun and pretty cool. They will almost always be a good conversation starter in any situation. Most all of the mermaid tattoos feature these half-women, half-fish with sexy bodies, gorgeous long flowing hair and most of the time big boobs too. The idea was obviously to look as attractive to men as possible. After all that does play into the mythology of sailors being drawn to their death by mermaids and sirens.
If I were to pick one of these mermaid tattoos I wouldn’t mind getting the bottom one. It’s a really good looking tattoo of a hot and sexy mermaid and I could be wrong but I think a tattoo like this has a really neutral feeling to it. I just can’t see how a girlfriend or a wife can get jealous over a mermaid, and not a real person. But now that I think about it, I guess everything is possible. You just never know how a girlfriend or wife will react to anything that could be considered sexy looking, not even mermaid tattoos.
Mermaid tattoos are popular nautical symbols. They are historically beautiful women with the upper body of a woman and the lower body of a fish. And the fifteenth and sixteenth century explorers returned to Europe with tales of sea creatures who had the heads and upper torsos of a woman and fishes’ tails instead of legs. They claimed that these mysterious and beautiful creatures were as deadly as the Sirens of old, and would lure men into the water by pretending they were drowning, and then drowning the men. Mermaids are often portrayed sitting on a rock or boulder, combing their long flowing tresses while gazing into a mirror. Mermaids are symbols of potent female energy and the underlying threat was that a sailor would be lured to his death by drowning if he pursued a mermaid. Early mermaid legends can be traced back nearly five thousand years around the Mediterranean. It was in Greek mythology that mermaids first made their appearance. Mermaids are almost always symbolic of female fertility. They are invariable seen as creatures of love and fertility, with long hair; and the comb which is an element in both portrayals of Aphrodite and in mermaid tattoos had significant sexual meaning for the Greeks because it was a representation of the vulva.
