The Raven in Goth and Alternative Culture
Ravens started showing up in goth culture when the Industrial and Goth genres started to merge. Goths began to identify with the Raven as a symbol of death, knowledge and wisdom. It is because of this that Raven tattoos and Raven symbols became associated with Goths and alternative cultures.
Ravens symbolize death due to multiple factors. The Raven is often seen as a messenger from the afterlife or dying, with a meaning of taking something evil away with them. Raven's are also known to be tricksters, which is related back to the ravens stealing the Sun and Moon causing an eternal night.
This is also related back to the Raven being a symbol of knowledge and wisdom. The Raven is often seen as a "philosophers" bird, so it is also seen as the bearer of wisdom. Raven's are often considered to be intelligent, which lead to them being seen as an icon of intelligence.
There is also Raven's connection to the occult. Raven's would gather around battlefields and feast on the bodies of dead soldiers, leading them to be seen as a creature of Hell. Raven's also have a tendency to eat rotting flesh, and carrion, leading them to be seen as creatures of the night.
These are just some of Raven's connections to death, knowledge and wisdom. There are far more connections Raven's have to death, knowledge and wisdom than just these. Raven's are very often associated with Goth culture as they symbolize a lot that is related to Goth culture. Raven's are often seen as creatures of the night, connected to death and darkness. Raven's are also considered intelligent creatures, which is very closely related to the Goth subculture, who are often looked at as intelligent outcasts. Raven's are also considered "philosophers" creatures, which is related back to the Raven being an icon of knowledge and wisdom.
