The mysteries of the universe form a favorite theme for many tattoo designs. Since ancient times men have used their creativity to make tattoo designs that speak of the warmth of the sun, the coolness of the moon, and the bright shapes of the stars. Ancient tribes have wondered about how the sun gracefully sets giving way to the moon and stars. That sense of wonder and awesome mystery makes up Celestial Tattoos and express the magic of the worlds beyond our own.
Many celestial tattoo design themes play with the drama of opposites such as heat and cold, night and day, and male and female energies. These designs come to us from ancient times when men began wondering what happens if the sun and the moon combine in one place the way they do not in real life. The power of imagination brings the beautiful sun and the moon into play in many amazing tattoo designs. The blue hues of the moon contrast with the orange hues of the sun to make bright splashes of color on the forearm, the legs, or the chest. Many celestial tattoo designs are circular with a crescent moon surrounding the form of the sun. The drama of the sun and the moon combining is really intense, and that dramatic effect is seen is tattoo designs. You can see imaginative tattoos in which a cool moon seems to be sweating as it sticks close by the sun, or the sun and moon face off making angry faces at each other. The celestial beings like the sun, the moon, the stars, and the clouds play, fight, make up, and make love to each other in awesome tattoo designs. Here’s a look at the powerful magic of celestial tattoo designs.
