Just a few years ago, tattoos were a huge statement of someone’s uniqueness and individuality. People with tattoos were viewed as different from the rest of the population. Lately, tattoos have become a major fashion statement and the number of people having them on their bodies is growing enormously.
Although their symbolism as an individuality trait has diminished due to their popularity in recent times, dreams about tattoos still may symbolize your individuality and the need to be different from the rest of the world. This is especially true if you don’t actually have tattoos in real life.
Sometimes the picture of the tattoo has a special significance for you.
Dreams about tattoos can have different meanings. The designs of the tattoos symbolize our thoughts, emotions and beliefs. They may show something we want. These dreams might signify some important life events that we’ll always remember.
People with tattoos in our dreams might be representing some people in our lives trying to get to know us better and become closer.
Dreams about tattoos might reflect your satisfaction with your own originality. Maybe you feel good because people are noticing you for being different.
This dream might also symbolize some important and unforgettable events and life lessons. A dream in which the only action was you getting a tattoo might be signifying some big difficulties coming into your life soon.
A dream about tattoos might also reflect your need to look tough and cold. Maybe it is a sign of your arrogance. Maybe you have the need to stand out in the crowd in some unusual, but unpleasant way. This dream might also symbolize a mistake or damage that cannot be repaired.
If you regularly come across tattoos in your daily life or have many yourself, this dream doesn’t have much significance for you.
