Scorpions' Enduring Popularity
Most people would agree that the scorpion's prominent position in the zodiac is largely what makes it so enduringly popular in the world.
To this very day, scorpion body art and tribal animal tattoos continue to be in high demand. However, the zodiac appearance is only one piece of the puzzle that surrounds these mysterious creatures. In some ways, people are drawn to things that can harm them.
Although scorpions are sometimes viewed as protective forces, they are usually viewed with fear. Like moths to the flame, then, people can't help but be mesmerized by scorpion tattoos.
Scorpions have naturally graceful lines, making them obvious choices when it comes to decorative skin art. Just be sure that you know what kind of feeling you're trying to convey when you consider a piece of body artwork
If it's supposed to instil fear in the hearts of other people, consider a menacing black tribal scorpion. If it's supposed to be a benevolent protector, go for a less freaky look. If it's simply meant to stand for your Zodiac sign, a very basic design may be all that you need.
Don't take scorpions lightly, in art or in real life!
Animal Planet once conducted a worldwide poll, asking people to name their favorite animal. Tigers narrowly beat out dogs to take the top prize. This is clear evidence that tribal animal tattoos are here to stay, and that people everywhere love them. They got 21% of the vote from more than 50,000 viewers worldwide.
Is it any surprise that so many people choose tribal animals when they're trying to come up with creative tattoos and other types of art? Tigers are mystical, tough, ferocious and attractive - what more could you possibly want?
They truly have it all!
