You are here

Any dream that focuses on the skin including being naked or having a skin enhancement such as a tattoo is similar to those dreams involving clothing. Both the skin and the clothes are symbolic, and demonstrate how you see yourself, and how you feel others see you. Having tender skin symbolizes how vulnerable you may be in your life. Any dream which involves tough skin will suggest some type of emotional defense and attachment. 

To dream of being skinned alive or skinning something alive (such as a dog or cat) means that you feel unprotected in waking life. This dream may be horrific and be extremely disturbing. It is important to know that protection is with you. To see a pet or animal skinned means that you need to let things go in life. This dream suggests your desire to improve your general well-being.

Detailed dream interpretation......


The Oriental tradition states that if you dream about skin, you will be left without supplies and without money and moreover, you will be involved in scandals, and be put in awkward situations. The skin in a dream foretells of sorrow, but also that you will get a win. Animal skins suggest that you are experiencing spiritual turmoil. To dream of an animal being skinned suggests that you may be about to offload something that is troubling you.


A skin can suggest lost judgment, sadness and unhappiness. If the skin in your dream has an infection, this foretells a fragile health ahead, but also ugly quarrels. A healthy skin is the omen of wealth and gains, as well as relaxed tensions. Dreaming of an animal skin means worries, anger, and sadness. A ferret skin is the symbol of luck in love, melancholy and dissatisfaction. More than one skin is usually a good sign, and it can portend a trip with good business deals.


Feelings that you may have encountered during a dream of skin...

Worried. Disgusted. Concerned. Surprised. Content. Amazed. Curious. Anxious.
