Zodiac signs for tattoos are very popular. However these symbols are also used for many other purposes. What better way to find a tattoo that represents you than a zodiac tattoo.
The Zodiac symbols most frequently used in the United States, as Zodiac tattoo signs as well as for other items, are the Greek-Roman system. There are twelve different signs but they aren't for each of the twelve months. Instead, each symbol represents a specific date of birth from one month until a specific day of the next. No matter which month you were born, the date will determine which of the Zodiac signs you were born under and which of the tattoos of zodiac symbols will match your sign.
Common locations for the astrological sign tattoos are on the hips, chest, shoulders, or on the back. Each sign of the zodiac has a coordinating name and symbol. For instance, if you were born under the sign of Leo, you would be represented by the lion and would look at zodiac Leo tattoos. A zodiac Cancer tattoo would, on the other hand, be represented by a crab.
There is more to the symbolism of the zodiac signs than just a different image to represent it. Other may learn a lot about you by your zodiac tattoo symbol. Astrological sign tattoos can also tell others details about your personality. For instance, a person wearing one of the zodiac tattoos, Cancer, would be expected to be a shrewd person who is also jealous and moody. In other words, you might have a tendency to occasionally be a little crabby!
Another reason that a person might think it is a good idea to wear their astrological tattoo designs is that some signs are supposed to be more compatible with others. Not everyone thinks this is a valid assumption. Others are strong believers that the signs you were born under will influence every facet of the rest of your life!
Another thing to think about when considering zodiac signs for tattoos is that they are just as diverse in pattern and in the intricacy of design as any other type of tattoo. Some of the tattoos of zodiac symbols are quite simple, while others are greatly detailed to give realism to the animal that represents it. If you are born under the sign of Scorpio, then your birth sign is represented by a scorpion. While some astrological sign tattoos would depict a basic drawing of a scorpion, some people want only those that have their tail positioned at a certain degree and with a realistic venomous appeal!
A good rule of thumb would be to use your own birth sign when getting a zodiac tattoo and not use one belonging to a spouse or any other person close to you. Even if you have their name printed underneath the tattoo, they may not be there one day and you will probably find that, even if they are, you are likely to get tired of wearing a symbol of someone else's personality!
Tattoos of zodiac symbols are one of the best tools you have available for creating a tattoo that is unique and specific for you. It will let the world know what type of person you are, who you are compatible with, and even what your best color is! Some people choose to use black ink for their astrological tattoo design, but using color will tell people much more about your fashion flair!
