Nowadays, a few people will be surprised to see tattoos on bodies of young people. However, it has been considered as something shameful recently. Needless to say, even now the proud owners of tattoos can notice that common people are surprised or even frightened to see them. Sometimes, they even give old-fashioned looks. Nevertheless, the desire to ink bodies with graceful, and sometimes bright and provocative tattoos is again popular in the territory of post-Soviet countries. Earlier people tried to put some important meaning in the pictures that they dreamed of permanently capturing on their bodies. Now a special message is put in tattoos less and less often. Often people are simply motivated by the desire to stand out from the crowd, decorate their body, make themselves more attractive to the opposite sex, creating a certain aura of mystery and sexuality around themselves by means of tattoos.
However, there are still true connoisseurs of body art among those who want to pay tribute to the tattoo fashion that is becoming more and more popular. Inking a picture on the body remains a serious and responsible step, in which they put a special meaning. Therefore, many of tattoo art fans want to ink their own zodiac signs on their bodies. Today, we will tell you about the meaning of tattoos with Capricorn zodiac signs.
All of us have some idea of zodiac signs we are considered to belong to according to the time of birth. And when it comes to Capricorns, everyone immediately imagines a malicious, melancholic and uncheerful person that doesn’t relate well to people. They are supposed to be taciturn, stingy, vindictive, and selfish. However, few people know that Capricorn symbol (a goat with a fish tail) dates back to Ancient Greece era (according to one version). In ancient Greek mythology, Capricorn was portrayed as a man with goatish legs and horns on his head. But they called him Pan instead of Capricorn. As legend has it, Pan was considered to be the son of the god Hermes and Driopa (although some sources indicate another mother’s name). Anyway, Pan was at least half of divine origin.
This style of tattoo art is considered to be one of the most difficult. It’s not surprising – try hard to paint a realistic portrait of a person, the “living and breathing” one. In order to master the technique of realism, the tattoo artist should paint perfectly. Capricorn in the image of Pan will be perfect for this technique. You can add a few details in the form of a bunch of grapes or a charming nymph.
Few people, born under the sign of Capricorn, like to expose themselves for show. Secrecy is a part of Capricorn’s nature. The name of the style speaks for itself – it’s a small picture (sometimes quite tiny), which displays something very personal for the owner of this tattoo. Works in the style of minimalism are rarely distinguished by a rich palette of colors. Often they are completely black and white. However, this doesn’t prevent such images from being fantastically harmonious.
The majority of male tattoo fans prefer to ink their zodiac signs in this style. This is due to the fact that works in dotwork style are usually cumbersome, flashy, and are characterized by contrast and brightness. A characteristic feature of the style is a “dot” technique. Such tattoos are usually inked in black. Sometimes there is a catchy combination of red and black. Dotwork is perfectly combined with semantics of Capricorn sign, displaying perseverance, endurance, fortitude, courage, and uncompromising stand.
This style perfectly reflects the rebellious and wild essence of the god Pan, because both the god himself and his wild retinue always caused conflicting emotions in people, such as: delight and at the same time disgust mixed with fear. Trash polka style has to evoke in common people the same feelings as the cheerful retinue of Dionysus and Pan including admiration and horror. Bold image of Capricorn in trash polka style will suit both guys and girls who are not afraid to stand out from the crowd, to show off their individuality.
If you want to move away from the traditional image of zodiac Capricorn in the form of a goat with a fish tail, you can safely turn to the origins of Capricorn symbol, that is, the mirthful god Pan. In this case, it will be perfect to depict a goat-headed god dancing with nymphs and maenads with a pipe in hand or with a background of grapes (as a tribute to Dionysus – Pan’s companion and the god of winemaking).
Admirers of the talent of C.S. Lewis and his unforgettable “The Chronicles of Narnia” can portray a goat-headed satyr walking with the girl by the hand (Mr. Tumnus and Lucy), as a memory of childhood, a fairy tale that is always with us. Don’t forget that the writer and philosopher Clive Lewis often refers to ancient Greek mythology (nymphs, dryads, fauns, deification of forces of nature) in his work.
You can portray Capricorn with the planet Saturn (its patron) in the background.
Since the time of early Christianity, the image of the goat has been associated with something diabolical. And in the Middle Ages, everything that was associated with paganism was stigmatized as “devilry”. Participating in Sabbaths was attributed to the girls that suffered persecution of the Inquisition (there is a connection with the festivities of Dionysus, Pan and their dryads). They were accused of having sexual relations with Satan (whose appearance, by the way, has much in common with fauns). One way or another, the image of Capricorn was heavily distorted and defamed at the time of the dominant position of the church. During the Renaissance, artists began to turn in their works to images from the myths of Ancient Greece and Rome. Renaissance humanists, for example, wished for a return to the ancient canons, that is, the glorification of the beauty of the human body and the human spirit.
In the modern world, there are still opinions about the “diabolical” nature of paganism. What should be considered the nature of Capricorn? Is it devilish or divine? It’s up to you to decide. In the end, the devil was once an angel. And unfortunately the world isn’t painted “black” and “white” solely.
