The History Goat Tattoos

Goats were the first animals to be domesticated by humans. They were our source of milk, food, and shelter, and in some places, one of the goats was worth gold. These little animals were such an important part of the development of human civilization that many myths, legends, and religions arose in their honor. According to Nordic folklore, Thor, the god of thunder, rode a chariot pulled by a herd of goats. The Greek god of the wilderness and the hunt, Pan, was a lustful half goat, half human. Pan is just one of countless hybrids in the Greek tradition. Capricorns (for the zodiac sign) and satyrs are all elements of this culture.

The goat eventually became an integral part of Masonic works. In the Christian tradition, the pagan god Baphomet was inextricably linked with Satan, the occult, and all evildoers. The practice of assigning pagan gods to the devil was often done in an effort to establish Christianity over the ancient religions. Ironically, in the Jewish tradition, goats are a prime animal to be considered for religious sacrifices and were reserved for guests of honor. The term “scapegoat” actually comes from a Babylonian tradition that was picked up by Jews during their time in the empire. Once a year a goat was allowed to “escape” from the village, symbolically carrying the sins of the villagers with it.

Unlike their sheep counterparts, goats love to climb and mountain goats spend their days at lofty heights foraging. In many cultures, this behavior is seen as a sign of ambition and encouragement for those who want to achieve more in life. These little animals are naturally curious, and that natural curiosity is bred by a level of intelligence. They nibble on any object near their mouths and this has led to the mistaken belief that goats will eat anything from paper bags to pieces of metal. Of course, it is doubtful that a can of e is a tasty meal.
