There are different types of tattoo designs that can incorporate this spider theme into your tattoo design.

These designs not only look good but will also help you recall your past experiences with your partner or spouse whenever you look at your new tattoo.

Below we’ll discuss some popular red widow tattoo meanings.

Black widow tattoo on neck meaning

When you see a black widow spider tattoo on your neck, it can mean that the person has been bitten by this spider or they may be justly proud of how beautiful their tattoo is.

It could also symbolize that the person is moving on from an abusive relationship and leaving their partner in the past.

This tattoo design can also represent strength and independence because some people feel like they need to be able to protect themselves from others.

Black widow tattoo on hand

The black widow tattoo can be found on the hand and wrist. This symbolizes the mark of death since a red spider is often placed on a dead body in order to identify it for predators.

It also serves as a warning for humans to stay away from it.

Black widow tattoo traditional

The red widow spider is not just the name of a tattoo design. It can also hold traditional meanings.

Generally, these tattoos represent a man and woman who had a failed marriage where the woman killed the husband.

The black mark on the male spider’s underside is an indication of his death because he was marked with it after death.

It also symbolizes that he will be eaten by other predators such as other insects and animals that would normally eat him if he wasn’t marked.

Realistic black widow tattoo

Red widow tattoos are typically depicted as either a black and orange or a red spider with black markings.

The color scheme of the image is typically a striking contrast which will make it stand out on your skin.

This contrast helps to create the impression that “the bigger they are, the harder they fall.”

The butterfly tattoo design is another popular type of red widow tattoo.

This design has been done in a realistic style by using various shades of red instead of black to create the appearance of a spiderweb.

A single outline of the spider web is often used in this design which makes it stand out from other red widow designs.

Black widow tattoo behind ear

The meaning behind a black widow tattoo behind the ear is that it is a symbol of a love that you have lost.

You may be in love with someone who has recently died or they could be someone who you are no longer in contact with and you have just remembered them.

This type of tattoo would allow others to know what has happened to you in the past, while not having to say anything verbally.

It’s also a reminder of when love was your number one priority. If you take care of yourself, then this tattoo will serve as your reminder for the future and keep you motivated for something better.
