Scorpios tattoo designs are most often represented by a scorpion image, an animal that many people are afraid of, just as they fear the Scorpio's wrath and power.
However, it is important to note that both the Scorpio and the scorpion only sting when they feel threatened or when they are wronged.
Scorpios are not out to hurt anyone, but are also not afraid to protect themselves when they feel like they are in danger, be it physical or emotional. Additionally, the scorpion represents the dark nature of the Scorpio at night. A truly dangerous and deadly creature, few people will knowingly threaten the Scorpio.
Those born under the sign of Scorpio, from October 23rd through November 21st, are well-known for their deep intensity and extreme passions. Scorpios have very magnetic personalities that generally cause others to form strong opinions about them.
Most people that a Scorpio encounters will either be extremely attracted or repelled. Scorpios form close relationships as well as deep enemies or rivals. Additionally, Scorpios hold strong opinions about their likes and dislikes and are not afraid to stick to these preferences.
Above all else, Scorpios are intense and take life seriously. They are loyal and trustworthy to all those they are close to, though they can be cruel and dark to those who have wronged them.
As Scorpios take their lives seriously, they also take things personally. This can cause the Scorpio to hold serious grudges against those who have wronged them, particularly those who have caused emotional wounds.
Scorpios are emotional about themselves and those around them. They also hold an intense emotional connection to sex and all things sensual. The Scorpio's extreme passion creates an ardent lover, but for the Scorpio, sex is more about a powerful connection and the joining of two separate people into one experience.
The Scorpio tattoo is also represented by a zodiac design symbol that is similar to that of the Virgo. The sign is shaped like a capital letter M with a tail on the end that points upward into an arrow. This symbol represents the scorpion's legs and tail, as well as an upward energy that seeks to keep the Scorpio's soul focused.
Additionally, Scorpio body art designs are often represented by the phoenix, a mythical bird that rises from the ashes through its determination and strength. This creature represents the Scorpio's strength and intense power to rise above evil and to achieve new heights.
