Whale - Although as a tattoo the whale is not nearly as popular as the dolphin, but symbolically it is no less interesting. Whales have been associated with myths and legends from 'Jonah and the Whale' to myths of killer whales. They are also connected with the world of the unconscious mainly because they live in the deepest oceans which were associated with unconscious emotions and imagery. The sound of whales can be a beautiful and haunting experience and there is no doubt of mankind's fascination with these majestic creatures.
Wheel Cross - This cross is similar to the Celtic cross and its actual name is Odin's Cross. It was originally a pagan symbol, but has since been appropriated by the Christian church. Like the Celtic Cross it has been adopted by White Supremacist groups. It is a simple design shown as a circle with a cross inside.
Witch - Witches have been around for millennia as those who practice Wicca or witchcraft. The stereotypical image of a witch is an old lady astride a broom with a pointy hat and even pointier nose! Although Wicca still survives to this day, most modern day witches would balk at this depiction.
Wolf - Wolves are a popular image in tattoo art. They are laden with symbolism and a recurring theme in many myths and fables. They are known for being pack hunters and have been known to adopt abandoned children. They are also linked with ancient mythology such as that of the Nordic and Native American traditions.
