Spider web tattoos were very associated with the criminal world, but over time, this association lost strength and took on new meanings.

Inside the prison, the cobweb was tattooed on the arm or elbow. It was associated with white supremacists or served as a time reference, according to the amount of threads.

Currently, this tattoo is more connected to the look, for no specific reason. Famous artists started using the web simply for its appearance and, from there, it became popular.

Today it is also associated with the personal fight, as an expression of a turbulent moment in life, as a feeling of imprisonment, discomfort or feeling of not being in the right place.

The web image can even be associated with the resilience about something that imprisons your life, such as alcohol or drug addiction.

Popular among motorcyclists, it is considered a representation of trap that the fate of life has chosen for you.
