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 skillful hunters and a silent threat to everything around them. Because of their iconic stance with their tails poised for striking, scorpions often represent defensiveness or protection. They are also symbolic of a person who likes to be in control, considering their formidable nature.
Scorpions also spend most of their lives alone, leading them to be associated with solitude and someone who can take care of themselves. However, this time of loneliness is interrupted by short and intense bursts of passion that come with mating. For this reason, scorpion tattoos also symbolize passion.
Because of all of these attributes associated with the scorpion, they are a trendy tattoo choice for strong and independent people. If you are considering getting a scorpion tattoo, check out some of these fantastic pictures for inspiration.
