Zodiac tattoos are a popular tattoo to get and the reason is very simple. Mankind is, and always has been fascinated by astrology. The zodiac form most popular in the United States, in horoscopes, star charts and general conversation is the Greek/Roman zodiac, which is broken down into 12 different signs, each one representing a roughly one month period. Each "sign" has its own meaning, and people who fall under the same sign of the zodiac generally share common traits, weakness and strengths. The zodiac tattoo in the picture represents Leo, the lion. Leo is often characterized as generous, warm hearted and free, as well as creative and enthusiastic. They are seen as being broad-minded and expansive and faithful and loving, Leo’s are generally born leaders. However, their strengths and dynamic personalities can be marred by the following weaknesses: being pompous or patronizing, bossy or interfering, and a tendency to be dogmatic or intolerant. Ruled by the sun, this sign is also associated with the ruby and the color gold. Those born between July 22-August 23 fall under the sign of Leo. Of all the zodiac tattoo signs, Leo is considered to be the most extroverted and dominate of all the signs, it’s equal being Aries.
There are twelve signs of the zodiac and any one of them can make for nice zodiac tattoos. This picture however is for a tattoo that encompasses all of the zodiac signs together and therefore represents all of human life together. Some people believe in what these signs are meant to stand for and others tend to read them as pure entertainment. It doesn’t seem like we’ll ever know who is right.
