All About The Aquarius Tattoo
An Aquarius tattoo is a commonly chosen design for those born under the Aquarius sign. Those born between January 20th and February 19th are born under the sign of Aquarius. All zodiac symbols are based on constellations and Aquarius is eleventh, or next to last in the twelve astrological signs.
There are two symbols regularly associated with the Aquarius sign. First is the “water bearer” or “water carrier” symbol. This symbol is representative of giving life and food to the world. The water is said to wash away the past and make room for the future.
The second symbol, a glyph in the design of waves of water, is symbolic of the water from the water bearer's vessel. It is considered a symbol of open ended spiritual energy. This sign can resemble an M or two rippling waves atop one another.
