Scorpion Tattoos

Though small, there is no doubt that scorpions are very intimidating creatures. They often go unnoticed until they have already struck out at their prey, making them very capable hunters and a silent threat to everything around them. Because of their iconic stance with their tails poised for striking, scorpions are often thought to represent defensiveness or protection. They are also symbolic of a person who likes to be in control, considering their formidable nature.

Scorpions also spend the majority of their lives alone, leading them to be associated with solitude and someone who is capable of taking care of themselves. However, this time of loneliness is interrupted by short and intense bursts of passion that come with mating.For this reason, scorpions can also symbolize passion.

Because of all of these attributes associated with the scorpion, they are a very popular tattoo choice for people who are strong and independent. If you are considering getting a scorpion tattoo, check out some of these great pictures for inspiration.
