Beautiful and elegant, arrow tattoos are not only simple yet intricate, but also have various meanings to them. Arrows show strength, unity, courage and positive vibes, and are beautiful minimalist tattoos that incorporate some good old-fashioned tribal elements. They are often seen as objects that can only be shot by pulling it backward, symbolizing some difficult situations that happen in life, from which you often become stronger.
Like in any other tattoo, the meaning of an arrow tattoo varies depending on the carrier. An arrow can have many different symbolic meanings.
Arrows are also used to represent the energy and strong sense of direction of the individuals wearing it. A solitary arrow shows defense and protection from harm, whereas an arrow going through a diamond symbolizes courage and moving forward in life. Five arrows are considered to be a bundle, and shows courage and strength. This is a great matching tattoo to get with friends to show that you will always have each others’ backs and be strong.
Arrows can also symbolize hunting and war, as it’s the symbol of Artemis, the goddess of the Hunt, and Diana, also goddess of the hunt in Roman mythology. In the Iliad, Apollo is the healer under the gods, but he is also the bringer of disease and death with his arrows.
