More constellation tattoos

Recently I posted an Orion constellation tattoo that I liked conceptually, so I thought it might be nice to post a few other constellations — for whatever reason Orion is the most common… I suppose along with the Big Dipper, it’s probably the easiest to identify when you’re a kid so it becomes a part of people’s childhood memory. Assuming it’s not something worse.

Anyway, let’s start off with Gemini:

How about Scorpius rising? This one is by Nina Collier at Ancient Arts in Renton, WA.

Finally, this isn’t really a constellation, but I like this star tattoo by French artist NOON at Boucherie Traditionnelle out of Troyes and Paris… There are a number of French artists working in similarly art-influenced styles (see also Lionel of Out of Step, on BME, and Yann, profiled on Needled.

If you like that, you can see more of his work on his website and on BME.
