Inside: Our Favorite Cancer Zodiac Tattoos. 

Being the fourth sign in the zodiac means a lot of things, but to put it plainly: You’re an emotional crab.

You love hard and fast, but can also be a loner on your bad days (or good days, depending on how you look at it); you’re sensitive (hence the shell for protection) and nurturing; and you always follow your gut when it comes to big decision-making moments.

You’ve got a lot to offer the world, so why not celebrate it with a tattoo? Here is a list of our favorite Cancer Zodiac Tattoos.

What Do Cancer Tattoos Symbolize?

Symbolized by the crab, Cancer is the fourth astrological sign and originates from the constellation, Cancer. People born under this sign usually exhibit a wider range of personality traits than people born under other signs, but overall, Cancers are stable, nurturing, sensitive, and caring.

Like the crab that represents them, Cancers tend to protect their inner softness by presenting a hard veneer to the outside world. They typically place a high value on traditions, home life, and taking care of their loved ones. When a Cancer’s need to nest and nurture goes unmet, they may revert to the less pleasing traits of their character such as negative outbursts, dark moods, and over-sensitivity.

More Tattoo Ideas You’ll Love

  • Taurus Tattoo Ideas – Taurus is the second sign in the astrological zodiac and is represented by the symbol of a bull. It is an earth sign, and those born under this sign are ruled by the planet Venus. When illustrated, the Taurus symbol is a round circle topped by a squiggly U shape to form the appearance of a bullhead with horns, which make great Taurus Tattoo ideas. Being housed under the sign of the bull, Tauruses are characteristically stubborn, determined, strong, and believes in standing up for what is right.
  • Aries Tattoo Ideas – As a true Aries girl myself, these Aries tattoo ideas are full of fire and fun that I love so much. Since Aries is represented by Ram people often get either Ram head tattooed or some just prefer to get its horns tattooed. The tattoo placement when it comes to Aries Zodiac tattoos is very diverse. One can get the Ram or its horns inked on the back, sides, chest, arm, neck, forearm, calf, thigh, ribs, stomach, lower back. If you do not want horns tattooed on yourself but you still want an Aries tattoo you can always go for the Aries symbol tattoo on either wrist, finger, collarbone, nape, or shoulder.
  • Cute Little Tattoos – Little tattoos can be personal and discreet, but they can also have a giant meaning and connection for the wearer. Smaller tattoos can be good for those just starting with tattoos…you know…see if you like it before committing to a large image.
