Scorpio Tattoo

As we know that Scorpio Tattoo is 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. And scorpion has had various meanings and representations in different cultures in history.
For example in Mesopotamia, Gilgamesh scorpion approaches mountains where scorpion folk guard the entrance. Additionally, the Akkadians called the constellation Scorpio, Girths, meaning the Sizer, or Stinger and “Place Where One Bows Down”. And in Egyptian mythology, the scorpion stands for Set, the Trickster and brother of Nephthys, nemesis and opponent of Osiris, and Isis. And also in Falaknuma palace of Hyderabad, India, was laid out in the shape of a scorpion with two stingers spreading out as wings to the north.

Scorpio Tattoo also used by artist that was the eighth of the twelve signs of the zodiac, corresponding to the constellation Scorpius, and is most often depicted as a Scorpion. Throughout history, Scorpio has at times been depicted as an eagle. It is the only one of the zodiac symbols to have two distinct animals.
