The Dream Books Symbols | Betty Bethards

Getting a tattoo could indicate an important amount of dependency with respect to the image that you have tattooed. In parallel, this dream also manifests the need to do different things than usual. In every form, although you desire a change in your life, you do not know just what it is that you want to change. This dream reflects confusion. On the one hand, you yearn to live like others, but on the other, you would like to be different. According to other interpretations this dream references an emotional situation that you have noticed and you cannot forget. In the same fashion, it may concern a behavior pattern that you have fully integrated into your personality.

The dream could be of a sexual nature. “Tattoo” is a Maori word and was considered by the Maori people as a beautiful and sensual ornament. In Polynesia, many people had their entire body tattooed (except the eyes). For many cultures like this one, tattoos are a symbol of sexuality and virility.

The Big Dictionary of Dreams | Martha Clarke

Tattoos may represent those things in our lives that seem only “skin deep” but may be interesting and fun. They could represent our thinking, our playful ways, and our seemingly unimportant habits. As time progresses, we may realize that our passing fads have become permanent. Thus, a tattoo may be symbolic of something that we inflict on ourselves, is permanent if not deep, and generally carries with it some negativity.

The Bedside Dream Dictionary | Silvana Amar

To see your body appearing tattooed, foretells that some difficulty will cause you to make a long and tedious absence from your home.

To see tattooes on others, foretells that strange loves will make you an object of jealousy.

To dream you are a tattooist, is a sign that you will estrange yourself from friends because of your fancy for some strange experience.

Ten Thousand Dream Interpretation | Gustavus Hindman Miller

1- On a physical level, a tattoo will stand for an aspect of individuality in the dreamer. He (or she) wishes to be seen as different.

2- A tattoo in dreams can also signify something which has left an indelible impression. This could be great hurt, but could also be a good memory. Sometimes, the image which is tattooed is worth interpreting if it can be seen clearly.

3- In spiritual terms a tattoo can suggest a group identity belonging to a tribe or cult. It will be on a more intimate level than wearing a badge.

Ten Thousand Dream Dictionary | Pamela Ball

Dreams of a tattoo symbolize that you are leaving an indelible mark on someone or on yourself, etching a memory into your soul. Also, dreams of a tattoo signify a desire to wear your soul on your sleeve, to make a commitment, and to leave your mark on the world. This dream can also symbolize affiliation or association with a particular tribe or group consciousness. Consider the type of tattoo as well as its placement on the body. See Body and Talisman.
