Just like many other creatures like butterflies and dragons, scorpions have a place in tattoo designs as well. These predatory arachnids give your tattoo artist a lot to work with. They have 8 legs, a segmented tail carrying an awesome venomous stinger.
The way they are put together also gives you the opportunity to have a lot detail in your design as well. You will find scorpions as the main element in tattoo designs as well as filling in space in larger pieces. They look good by themselves or with other elements as well.
Scorpion Tattoo Meaning
Scorpions are survivors. They have been around for hundreds of millions of years and can live almost anywhere. So, for many this translates into the meaning for their scorpion tattoo.
They are also independent creatures which is another common trait among those that are proud to sport a scorpion tattoo.
The scorpion can also be a warning. Anyone who sees a scorpion knows to watch out for its defensive tail so they don’t get stung. Some people wear scorpions to let people know not to mess with them.
Some people relate to Scorpio constellation for their tattoos. Scorpio’s are passionate and assertive which are two more great traits and meanings for these awesome tattoo designs.
Placement of Scorpion Tattoos
You will find scorpion tattoos everywhere on the body from the hands to the feet and even the neck. It doesn’t really matter where you put a scorpion on your body because they can be small by design or larger if you want it.
I personally think the scorpion on the neck would look awesome if you have the guts to wear it. That would certainly let people know you are not to be messed with!
Girly Scorpion Tattoos
Men are not the only gender you will find sporting scorpion tattoos. feminine Scorpio tattoos are very popular as well.
Zodiac signs can be popular tattoo designs so it is only natural that female Scorpio’s would want to get scorpion tattoos to represent their sign!
I have seen scorpion tattoos are women’s feet and ankles the most. This is probably a popular spot because of their size. However, that back or shoulders would also be a scorpion friendly location.
