The sun tattoo is preferred by many because it has a number of symbolic meanings that can be adapted by every person to describe a personal philosophy or innate inner personality traits. Some people may choose a sun tattoo because it’s the symbol of light and knowledge. Often, the sun tattoo can be interpreted as the light of knowledge that shines on the darkness of ignorance. This interpretation is, naturally, preferred by intellectuals or those who consider themselves enlightened. The sun can also represent the cycle of life to many individuals. These people get sun inspired designs to remind them to live everyday as if the sunset is fast approaching. They live life to the fullest and enjoy every moment to the fullest extent possible. One of the most popular interpretations is the sun tattoo as a symbol of sexual fertility and prowess. This goes back to ancient Canaan where the sun-god Baal was also worshiped as a fertility deity. And if paired with a moon tattoo, the sun tattoo even goes deeper into its sexual interpretation. A pairing of a moon and a sun tattoo depicts the union between male and female, both sexually and spiritually.
Here is another of the many styles of sun tattoos. This one with a kind looking face as the sun seems to be shining brightly and spreading its life giving warmth over the earth. The sun was worshiped for thousands of years for being such a life giver and also feared greatly believing it could also take it away.
