Un tattoo Virgo is ideal for those who are Virgo... but also for those who have an important Virgo in their life.
In this article we will see the meaning of this horoscope and some ideas that we can be inspired by to find our ideal design.
Who is that mysterious woman?
The protagonist of this zodiac sign is a woman, as we can see in many works of art (and horoscopes in newspapers) based on Virgo. However, Do we know who this woman is?
Well, the truth is that things change according to the legend we are dealing with. In some cases, Virgo represents Astria (which in Greek can be translated as 'lady of the stars'), daughter of Astreo and Eos, gods of the dusk and dawn respectively in ancient Greece. Astria is the goddess of innocence, justice and purity, and it is said that she was the last to ascend to Olympus at the end of the Silver Age, when the gods left Earth in search of their heavenly home.
Instead, there are those who relate the constellation to the harvest and the grain, like the Romans, who related her to Demeter; the Sumerians, who believed that it represented the goddess Shala, or the Egyptians, who also related the constellation to the harvest.
To get a Virgo tattoo that is not only good, but is really special, you have quite a few ideas to draw inspiration from. The simplest include, for example, the symbol of Virgo (that kind of eme with a tail) or the constellation.
For more elaborate designs, you can choose to represent one of the many incarnations of this maiden and draw inspiration from some elements of her culture for the style. A very cool idea for a large design, for example, would be a colorful design in the style art noveau by Mucha.
