The Mysterious Black Widow Spider and The Tattoo Meaning

Black widow tattoo meanings are drawn from the black widow spider. The black widow spider is considered one of the most deadly spiders in the world. Black widows have a dark-colored body with pink or red spots on the underside of their abdomen that are immediately recognizable. This distinctive look of this eight-legged spider sends warnings to predators of the dangerous venom they carry.

Their creepy color also strikes fear in the minds of any vulnerable prey. Talking about prey, a black widow spider survives on almost anything caught up in its webs making the spider's web crucial for its survival. They inject venom into the unlucky prey that happens to get caught in their spider web and feed on their liquified bodies.

Although they have eight eyes, they only sense the world with all the tiny hairs on their long legs.

A male spider is only about half the size of its female counterpart and a black widow female will eat its male black widow counterpart after mating. Such mating habits are known as sexual cannibalism. Male spiders avoid death by ensuring that the female black widows are fully fed before mating.

You can find the black widow spider in North America, South America, Africa, Europe, Australia, and Asia. These dangerous creatures are everywhere in the world except Antarctica. In the United States, black widow spiders can be found across the country most especially in the southern and western parts.

The black widow spider tattoo represents wisdom, strength, and cleverness. They can also be considered symbols of protection, feminine energy, and even death. Interpretations vary depending on the beliefs of the person wearing them. For example, society attributes these clever creatures to negative qualities betrayal, and broken relationships which would make their tattoos a bad sign. However, as black widow spiders come in several different forms and designs, so do their meanings.
