When it comes to celestial tattoos there are a large number of different designs to choose from. There are celestial tattoo designs that feature the planets of our solar system such as Mars, Uranus and Venus. There are celestial tattoos that feature various constellations. But the two that I am most concerned with are the moon and the sun. Let’s delve into the meaning behind these two designs.

A celestial tattoo that contains images of the moon has a lot of symbolism attached to it. The moon touches and stimulates all life, especially life of the night.

The traditional symbolism behind the moon is that it stands for feminine power, dreams, intuition, subtle energies, eternity, fertility and purity. It also has a meaning of shadow, magic and mystery associated with it.

A celestial tattoo that contains images of the sun has a different connotation. The sun is the life-giver to all life on the planet. Without it this planet would be barren and frozen. This has made it an important symbol to mankind. Some of the meanings behind these tattoos include energy, God, illumination, energy, power, focus, abundance, enlightenment, divinity and wealth.

Both of these designs are extremely rich in symbolism and should be considered for your next celestial tattoo.
