The meaning of springbok tattoo is speed. Springbok is a kind of antelope whose speed is second only to cheetah. It has excellent jumping and running ability. The maximum speed can reach 94 kilometers per hour, and the maximum can jump to 3.5 meters high. It can almost be said that only cheetah can be called its natural enemy. The biggest difference between springbok and other antelopes is that the white markings on its face cover its forehead, and a black line extends from the outer corners of its eyes.
Springbok has great similarities with Starling and Thomson gazelle. Their whole body is yellowish brown, but their abdomen, chest and inner sides of limbs are covered with white hair. There are obvious black wide stripes on the yellow white boundary on the side of the body, and there are also black stripes on the tail. The only obvious difference is that although the face of the springbok also has black-and-white stripes, its white hair covers a larger area and almost occupies the whole face.
