Many people view dolphins and dolphin tattoos as highly symbolic – these intelligent creatures are seen as a friendly and benevolent protector and a symbol of the joy and abundance that is associated with the ocean. They can express someone's desire for a deeper spirituality, dignity, wisdom and balance in life. Some people get a dolphin tattoo simply because it is cute and because it makes them smile when they see it. Dolphins are often combined with other symbols, like a fairy, the moon, sun, stars, waves, the yin yang symbol, hearts and so on. Dolphins can also be adapted to a variety of other tattoo styles, like Celtic or Tribal styles. No matter what style of you decide to get, your tattoo will be a positive day-to-day reminder of the kind of person you seek to be and will encourage you to focus on the important elements of life, while not neglecting joy and happiness. The dolphin has a near-universal appeal and it almost always draws positive connotations to mind.


It is a symbol of rejuvenation and new life, just as some believe Christ came to bring new life to people on earth. Many people choose to get a dolphin tattoo to remind themselves of these qualities each day, and to make an outward statement of the type of person they are striving to be. The image of a dolphin sailing through deep sea waters brings to mind ideas of free-spirited independence. Of course, the dolphin and unicorn are a classic combination and can be considered the most epic duo of all time.
This is partly because of the various shapes in which it can be depicted – normally oblong, it can be curled into a near-spherical shape without looking distorted. Because it lives in the sea, the Celts came to associate dolphins with rejuvenation and a new start in life as well. The Greeks saw the dolphin as a mystic figure with a spiritual connection to the sea and the entire universe.


You can have an outstretched dolphin, or even a chain of them (nose to tail), to form an armband – or you can have the image curled around your bellybutton. They interpreted the presence of dolphins riding in a ship’s wake as a very good omen. Men usually go for serious and realistic tattoo art, women in general prefer a more flowery and mystical vibe.
