If you were born between October 24 to November 22 then you are a Scorpio and may wish to consider getting a Scorpio tattoo. This tattoo is representative of the strong personality traits associated with this sign. Scorpios are the most intense, profound, powerful characters in the zodiac. Even when they appear self-controlled and calm there is a seething intensity of emotional energy under the placid exterior. In their everyday behavior they give the appearance of being withdrawn from the center of activity, yet those who know them will recognize the watchfulness that is part of their character. They need great self-discipline, because they are able to recognize the qualities in themselves that make them different from other humans, and to know their utterly conventional natures can be used for great good, or great evil. Their tenacity and willpower are immense, their depth of character and passionate conviction overwhelming, yet they are deeply sensitive and easily moved by their emotions. Their sensitivity, together with a propensity for extreme likes and dislikes make them easily hurt, quick to detect insult or injury to themselves and easily aroused to ferocious anger. These personality traits make Scorpios very willful and intense creatures. If you fall under the influence of this sign then show your pride by having a Scorpio tattoo inked into your skin.
The Scorpio tattoo represents the eighth sign of the zodiac, reigning over the calendar year from October 23 to November 21, midway through autumn and approaching the dead of winter. Indeed, the approach of death and the following period of birth and renewal are at the heart of this often maligned but frequently tattooed astrology symbol. Like many of the astrology signs, the Scorpio tattoo alludes to the natural world. As with real scorpions, the zodiac symbol suggests the possibility of death but it is not a foregone conclusion. Instead, Scorpio tattoos have come to represent struggle and resistance, dynamic change, and sometimes also endurance and the triumph of life. The brightest star in the constellation of Scorpio is Antares, a binary star system whose main component is a red super giant. If fact, Antares is originally from the Greek meaning ‘simulating Mars’ for its red color. Even today, as the constellation of Orion travels across the night sky, Scorpio chases him. As Scorpio rises in the east, Orion dutifully yields and sets in the west. A symbol of danger and also of strength, Scorpio is fundamentally the sign of change, whether that change is in the seasons, the struggle of life and death, or the rotation of the stars.
