20 Cool & Colorful Astronaut Tattoos

minerva in Tattoo Ideas

If you really think about it, we are all just space men. We concern our lives everyday with earthly duties such as work, deadlines, bills, and all that stressful stuff...but in reality, we're just merely small little helpless dots in an endless space. Sometimes it makes you wanna re-think the purpose of our existence. We live in a galaxy that belongs to a galaxy... and god knows what else is out there. Technology continues to advance, and men use this advancement to explore and learn more of the unknown. These 20 cool and colorful astronauts represent that big leap that mankind has already done and will do with lots of potential as we are exploring the unlimited vastness of outer space. With history and trivia along the way. :)

Did you also wish to reach the moon as a kid?

Astronauts have one of the toughest & riskiest jobs in the world. Much respect to these valiant men.

What would happen if Astronauts went to space without their suits? Well, they could die! And that can take place in a matter of seconds. The spacesuit, also called the EMU (Extravehicular Mobility Unit), provides air pressure to keep the fluids in the body in their liquid state. Otherwise, these fluids may boil! Spacesuits regulate temperature and supply pure oxygen.

Did you know? The biggest planet so far recorded in our solar system is Jupiter. We may think the earth is big enough, but in reality it's just a dwarf next to it.
