About Taurus Zodiac Symbol Tattoos

  • Sensual
  • Conservative
  • Kind
  • Reliable
  • A little stubborn
  • Resistant to change

They're typically easy to love and love others in return. Is it any wonder that a Taurus people who are into astrology would want to have evidence of their nature tattooed on their body? While Taurus is a positive sign, there are negatives to the typical Taurus demeanor including jealousy, possessiveness and greed. Each sign has its pros and cons, of course.

Variations on the Taurus zodiac symbol tattoo include:

  • A shield shape with the top two corners crossing and extending to the upper corners of the image, a more angular take on the traditional Taurus symbol
  • Scrolling lines flitting in and out of the circle and around the horns
  • The symbol inside of another geometric shape, with the surrounding area decorated in circles

The basic symbol shapes can be set on a multitude of backgrounds with extravagant scrolls, realistic bull heads, celestial images, leaves, flowers and words. The simplistic design lends itself to almost anything else you may want to add to the total image. There are ways to incorporate color as well, so it doesn't have to be a plain black design.

Other fun facts about the Taurus sign:

  • Taurus is ruled by Venus.
  • The sign of Taurus lasts from April 21 to May 20.
  • Taurus is an earth sign.

It is the Taurus symbol of a circle with a half circle perched on top (lying on its back), inside of another full circle and filled with smaller circles of various sizes. Some are filled in while others are not. The design is shown in black and white but it would be beautiful with color added, perhaps a light pink which is the traditional Taurus color.
