Cherokee tattoo designs can be found in many locations online, including on the Tattoo Finder website. Common symbols include numbers, feathers, headdresses, totem images and dream catchers.
The numbers four and seven are also used for Cherokee body art symbols. The number four is a sign of the cardinal directions, which are north, south, east and west. The number seven represents the seven Cherokee clans. Seven also represents the four cardinal directions plus up, down and center. Animals like the cougar and owl are also popular Cherokee symbols. Cherokee tradition believes that these two animals remained awake while the other creatures slept during the seven nights of Creation.
