What is the anger about zodiac tattoo designs?
Why are they so popular?
Humanity has been fascinated by the stars and constellations for thousands of years and the impact that these sparkling little dots in the night sky have on each and every one of us as individuals.
You cannot get a daily or weekly publication without a reference to the stars or astrological measurements.
And most people have been concerned with what your zodiac sign says about you. If you are an ibex, you are determined, stable, but can be persistent. Fish tend to be personable and friendly. Those born under the sign of ram can be sociable and brave, but grumpy and tempered quickly!
Surprisingly, there are many different types of the zodiac all over the world. But more or less the basics remain the same. In astronomy, the zodiac is the ring of constellations that line the ecliptic. This is the path that the sun takes over the sky over a period of one year. The moon and the planets also lie in this ecliptic and thus in the constellations.
In astrology, the zodiac represents the signs that divide the ecliptic into twelve equal length zones. In fact, the zodiac is a form of coordinate system that uses the ecliptic as the origin of latitude and the sun, and that of spring equinox as the origin of longitude.
The astrological maps that the majority of the western world follows are based on the Latin / Greek zodiac. The Greek zadiakos kuklos, meaning zodiac, is motivated by the fact that most of the signs of the classical Greek zodiac are depicted as animals (six out of twelve plus two mythical birds).
So why a zodiac sign or a zodiac sign as a tattoo? Why not? If you strongly believe in astrology, this is another way of saying and showing through your body art that this is who I am. That makes me my date of birth. Some say that they feel like they are connecting to the universe - their zodiac tattoo is another coordinate that they can connect to.
Even if you have no idea what type of tattoo design to choose, basing your decision on something that is personal to you is not a bad way.
You can vary the art and design by basing your tattoo on the symbols used in Western astrology or the actual zodiac signs, so the artist can recreate something simple or ornate and complicated.
