Scorpions are small, but potent. They are often a symbol of duality; that is to say, you may appear harmless and unassuming, but in reality, you are a force to be reckoned with. Keeping in the theme of duality, scorpion tattoos have long been used as a form of protection not only from the actual, physical sting of this creature, but also from the ’sting’ of evil spirits, and powerful human beings.
Usually people who are born in the months of October and November come into the group of those who want a Scorpio tattoo. The nature of such people are compared with the ferocious creature-scorpion which attacks its prey and makes it paralyzed.
