The moon is undoubtedly a wonder to behold. Its phases are closely observed and many admire its air of grace and mystery. It even ignites mass media hype whenever the moon decides to act more majestic than it usually does. Remember the Blood Moon and this year's Supermoon?
Of all the phases of the moon, it has to be the half-moon or the crescent moon that stands out the most. It's largely associated with celestial beings and the occult, maintaining its mystical reputation. The crescent moon also makes for such a hopelessly stunning tattoo; in fact, it's one of the most popular tattoo design in South Korea. Behold these fine l ine wonders depicting the elusive and otherworldly crescent moon.
