Dreamcatcher tattoos are becoming very popular, among both sexes, but because of their delicate quality, are more common among women. Dream catchers have a rich history among Native Americans. The purpose of the dream catcher is to protect those who are sleeping, to catch the bad dreams and nightmares, and to only allow the good dreams to pass to the dreamer. In essence, the dream catcher is somewhat of a filter for dreams. The way that the good dreams would pass through, is through the hole in the middle of the large circle, pass down through the feathers and onto the dreamer. So one would normally place a dream catcher above wherever they slept at night. The bad dreams would dissipate when the sun’s light would hit the dreamcatcher in the morning. While the dream catcher is a well-known icon for Native Americans, many other people have adopted it as a symbol for their lives, for accepting positivity and rejecting or warding off negativity.
