As an alarm clock to wake up farmers and other animals, the rooster has a good effect. On the farm, the rooster at the first dawn of the day, outlaws the night with their cry, announcing the arrival of a new day. As a result of the daily ritual, rooster tattoos symbolize exile’s darkness, evil power and spirit. The Golden Rooster tattoo also represents the performance of optimism and looking forward to the future, and does not let oneself be burdened with the dark side of his past. However, they are bossy animals. Unlike any other bird, they don’t like to fight to death.
The Chinese people have always been far away from Fengshui metaphysics. In many fairy tales, rooster has the meaning of exorcising evil and avoiding evil. Especially in some films and TV dramas, we all know that ghosts are most afraid of roosters. Roosters crow, which means a new day, the beginning of the day, and ghosts are most afraid of the day. So many times, tattoo lovers are very willing to Rooster tattoo, also as a kind of exorcism tattoo.
People who understand Chinese culture naturally know that rooster is called “bird of five virtues” in Chinese culture. The five virtues represent courage, wisdom, generosity, kindness and punctuality. So the cock tattoo naturally has the meaning of five virtues.
