Elephants are one of the most breathtaking animals in nature. They are massive and usually encompass an entire plane of vision. In fact, they are the biggest land mammal in the world. Aside from their large size, elephants have a very distinct look. Floppy ears, tusks and a trunk are all trademark elephant features. As one of the most recognizable animals on Earth, elephants have inspired songs, fiction and art. Many people associate elephants with strength, compassion and empathy.
An elephant tattoo is an especially popular choice among animal lovers, but the general public loves them as well. Elephants are usually tattooed in a realistic manner with heavy attention to detail and shading. Due to popular movies and television, elephants can also be drawn in a cuter, more cartoonish style. True to their size in nature, elephants are typically drawn as large focal points on the chest or back regions.
