This small arthropod has long been associated with aggression, menace, death and fear!!

What the scorpion lacks in size it certainly makes up for in deadliness. Historically scorpions occupied a place as a symbol of righteous vengeance, but more commonly were seen as a representation of impending doom or death. In contrast to that however scorpions in certain cultures were symbols of healing. Ancient Egyptian's held the belief that a scorpion symbol would protect them from a scorpions venom and thereafter represented healing and even resurrection.
Today most people associate the scorpion as a symbol with the eighth sign of the zodiac; Scorpio. Now don't be alarmed, even if you're not a Scorpio, scorpion tattoos are still something you can adorn your body with! A scorpion tattoo is a piece ink that looks good in a number of styles; bold traditional, watercolor, geometric or realism all make for a kickass scorpion tattoo. Whether it will have a meaning to you or not a scorpion inked on your arm will always be a good choice, so to give you some inspiration on what type of scorpion tattoo would be best for you here are 18 Stinging Scorpion Tattoos!!
