With the panther usually being big and detailed in form, they are usually found on the arms, legs, things, chest and back. This tat also caught the attention of female ink enthusiasts. They are used to symbolize women’s nature as being gentle and loving with their children, yet fearless in defending their families. After all, These panther tattoos are also said to represent freedom from oppression and rules.
