Lotus Tattoo Bodyart

The symbolism behind the lotus flower is directly related to how the lotus flower begins its life and continues to grow. Imagine a body of still water in the depths of a tropical forest, when you think of the bottom of that pond, it becomes difficult to imagine anything pleasant. Perhaps the first term you would associate with that type of water is "pond scum". Yet, this is where the beautiful and majestic lotus flower begins to grow.

Pisces Tattoos (February 20-March 20)

Pisces is the twelfth and final of the twelve signs of the zodiac, corresponding to the constellation Pisces, and is depicted as two fish swimming around each other and connected by a band.

Pisces glyph The glyph for Pisces looks like a fancy version of the capital letter “H” in which the center points of the two vertical lines are drawn inward, causing the top and bottom of the lines to bow out.
Pisces tattoos can be of the image, glyph, or combination of both.

Pisces is a water element sign, and is ruled by the planet Neptune. The legend behind the Pisces fish is varied and unclear. One version from Syrian lore is that the two fish are in reality the goddess Atargatis and the god Dagon, who was half-man and half-fish. Greek mythology says that the fish are really two black dolphins. They were sent by the god Poseidon to save Eros and Aphrodite from the monster Typhon.

The Pisces personality may at times appear split or two-sided, e.g. they may be ambivalent or undecided about courses of action. They can be so open-minded that it comes across as irrational. Though skilled mediators, Pisces would rather daydream or pray to avoid getting “too much” reality. Actors, dancers, photographers, and ministers are often Pisces.

The lists below show a number of characteristics, both positive and negative, that different sources attribute to Pisces:

Positive: emotional, intuitive, artistic, sympathetic, imaginative, poetic, easy-going, sentimental, kindly, adaptable.

Negative: withdraws, insecure, malleable, self-pitying, self-indulgent, lack of drive, dreamy, lazy, unstable, restless, chaotic, fickle.

Characteristics associated with Pisces, which may be customized into a unique tattoo design:
  • Body Part: Feet
  • Color: Violet
  • Metal: Tin
  • Flower: Violet
  • Gem: Pearl, Jasper (Bloodstone)
  • Food: Raisins, Dates, Cereals
Famous Pisces include Copernicus, Galileo, Victor Hugo, Michelangelo, and Handel.

Aquarius Tattoos (January 20-February 18)

Aquarius is the eleventh of the twelve signs of the zodiac, corresponding to the constellation Aquarius, and is most often depicted as a man pouring water from an urn.

Aquarius image It is the only zodiac sign that has only one man (the others with humans are either twins or females) There are many variations for Aquarius artwork. Though not accurate to the legends, oftentimes the water bearer is drawn as a woman. Many times, only the down-turned urn is portrayed. Whichever variant is chosen, the most important feature is that water must be flowing out of the vessel.

Aquarius Glyph The glyph for Aquarius looks like two parallel and horizontal jagged lines. The image is very similar to the way we all drew pictures of water when we were children, with little squiggly lines to represent waves.

Aquarius tattoos can be of the image, glyph, or combination of both.

Aquarius is an air element sign, and is ruled by the planet Uranus. The legend behind Aquarius is varied and unclear. The story told most frequently is that the image is of Ganymede, a gentle shepherd boy who found favor with the ancient Greek gods. They made him immortal, so he could eternally bring them nectar to drink from a cup. Common wisdom has it that the waters that pour from the urn are the waters of spiritual knowledge; the celestial waters of the powerful ancient gods.

The Aquarius personality may at times appear fragile, but in reality has the resources for survival. Aquarians generally want to be friends, have a live and let live attitude, and they love to inspire trust, impart knowledge, and help others. They would rather be different than ordinary. Aquarians are often scientists, social workers, or in the military. The lists below show a number of characteristics, both positive and negative, that different sources attribute to Aquarius:

Positive: wise, refined, artistic, tenacious, intuitive, independent, original, friendly, humanitarian, progressive, persistent, inventive, creative, tolerant, fond of science and literature, optimistic.

Negative: erratic, perverse, would rather destroy status quo than work to establish benefits for the future.

Capricorn Tattoos (December 22-January 19)

Capricorn is the tenth of the twelve signs of the zodiac, corresponding to the constellation Capricornus, and is depicted as a goat.

Frequently, artistic versions of Capricorn show an animal with the upper body of a goat and the lower body of a sea-creature (something like a mermaid’s tail). For a tattoo, just a picture of a goat is fine, but one should probably consider artwork that portrays the goat-fish, or Sea-Goat.

Capricorn glyph The glyph for Capricorn looks like the capital letter “V” with a looped tail coming off the top point of the right hand line of the V. The V portion represents the goat’s body and horns, while the looped tail represents the sea-creature part of the body.

Capricorn tattoos can be of the image, glyph, or combination of both.

Capricorn is an earth element sign, and is ruled by the planet Saturn. The legend behind Capricorn is varied and unclear. The story told most frequently is that Pan, the pipe-playing god of herdsmen who had the upper body of a man and the lower body of a goat, was trying to escape the monstrous god Typhon. Pan leapt into the Nile River, where his upper body became the goat half, and his lower body turned into a fish.

The Capricorn personality is ambitious and healthy, and rarely takes the easy path. Friendships evolve slowly, as the Capricorn sometimes comes off as cold and unemotional, and can let rules get in the way of having fun. Still, Capricorns are outgoing and have a good sense of humor. They make good civil servants and politicians. The dual nature of the goat-fish body leads the Capricorn to both climb to new heights or sink into the abyss. The lists below show a number of characteristics, both positive and negative, that different sources attribute to Capricorn:

Positive: surefooted, industrious, ambitious, practical, prudent, persevering, diplomatic, cautious, methodical, dependable, trustworthy, efficient, just, honest, conservative, responsive, patient, systematic.

Negative: high need for security, secretive, fearful, miserly, unsympathetic, rigid, suspicious, selfish, materialistic, brooding, egotistical.

Characteristics associated with Capricorn, which may be customized into a unique Capricorn tattoo design:
  • Body Part: Knees
  • Color: Deep Blue
  • Metal: Lead
  • Flower: Poppy
  • Gem: Garnet
  • Food: Cabbage, Kale
Famous Capricorns include Sir Isaac Newton, Louis Pasteur, and Benjamin Franklin.
