Tattoos of ungulates like deer, elk, or caribou signify many things. In Native American cultures, they are exalted as symbols of rebirth, pride, strength, and protection. In Europe, inked versions of these animals symbolize grace and creativity. In Asia, deer are considered heralds of good fortune and abundance. In North America, tattoos of deer or elk more often than not show a passion for the hunt, and the animal that is hunted. Still, no matter what you want your tattoos to mean, they still have to look good.

Thinking of getting tatted up but don’t have a design in mind? These tattoos may provide some inspiration.

    This does not add a single thing to our sport.

      So because you’re an anti-tattoo moron, these people shouldn’t show their love of hunting with tattoos? Ignorance.

      • KonTiki

        Ad hominem attacks are ignorance. They’re a logical fallacy – the basest kind.

    Except for the one with arrows coming out of its throat, these look like animal lover’s tattoos, not animal killers. Why would they want to have permanent images of their victims, on their bodies? Just more evidence that hunters are serial killers. They also keep pictures and trophies.

      Then why are you on this site? Serial killers? Wow! I’m sure the families of Manson’s victims and Bundy’s victims and Jack the Rippers victims would agree wholeheartedly with you that sportsman that protect the environment and are the largest supporters of conservation in America should be categorized as serial killers. We keep pictures for the memories. We keep antlers and mounts for the memories. We use these things because we use all of the animal and these are the only things left when we do. It’s the 21st century. We do not need pelts for clothing anymore or for shelter. We have evolved. So we make use of it as a memoriam of the hunt and the animal. Otherwise it gets thrown away. Why do we take pictures of athletes? Because they do something we can’t. Same with hunters. We do something not everyone can. Go out and make the world a better place, maybe sit down and have an adult conversation with a real hunter and get another perspective, instead of trolling pages you know you disagree with for the sole purpose of attention

        You give the exact same reasons that serial killers give. Keeping mementos of their kill lets them live the moment over and over and thus, the thrill of killing over and over. Yes, it’s legal but don’t dance around the purpose. Hunters find killing fun. If they just wanted something to do they’d get another job. It makes them powerful. The whole conservation argument has been dispelled. There are other, kind and scientific ways to control wildlife and actually if left alone, they will control themselves. Animals have feelings. They have families. We know that. They feel pain and fear. They have a life just like you have a life. Recently a male fox in England was observed laying across his den sacrificing his life to hunting dogs trying to protect his family from murderous sport hunters. This happens all the time. Animals are also injured and left for horrendous deaths. Just man up. You get a thrill from from the kill. Nobody’s going to arrest you. Its more likely you’ll get a pat on the back. Maybe someday you’ll get a wake up call and realize that your sport is actually murder. No difference in psychology. Just a different species.
