Moon Symbol tattoos and their meaning
Here is a collection on moon designs and various moon symbols from different cultures. Each of the moon tattoo designs has a different meanings and I will en-devour to explain each on as we go. In general the moon is a symbol of the feminine and relates to the unconscious and emotions.
ok lets start with a simple design.
Moon Dark, Full and Crescent
Inline design show the stages of the moon and in a cycle represented by the dark to full to crescent to full to dark . obviously not really in the order the happen but all stages are represented here. Would make a nice arm band tattoo or lower back or just about any where on the body really.

Many of the calendars available that include Pagan observances are filled with lovely art, however, they may not be appropriate for display at the office or in public areas. Feel comfortable displaying this calendar of artistic photography while still keeping track of information important to you.|
Pregnant Moon women
This was my favorite one of this set of designs. Here you have the moon represent the feminine, the full moon as the pregnant belly, the head and the face are not clear represent the hidden and mysterious nature of both emotions and the feminine. The breasts representing the crescent moon the cycles of waning and waxing, becoming larger and reducing with the pregnancy and birth cycle. The crescent moon behind the head showing the hidden powers and mysteries of the unconscious mind. you also have the three phases of the triple goddess the maiden mother Crone here with the crescent moon both waxing and waning and the full moon in the feminine figure. Would make a nice tattoo on an upper arm, on a leg inner calf.

Tribal moon design with planet symbols
This design has a more geometric feel about it. It has the full and crescent moon dominating the image but also contains the symbols for the Sun and other planets. Quite a strong design and the other planetary symbols almost make it more masculine.
I recently received and email from Theo with images of this tattoo that he has got on him.
This is what Theo had to say and a copy on the tattoo as well.
“The sun represents the immutability. It sets and rises every day, worldwide, and it does not change.As long as we remember, and until the end of our days.
The Moon represents change,the power of attraction.The moon affects the tides and we’re like the moon. We attract and move away from us things and people.The symbols are the planet around the Sun.They represent a set that depends on others for balance.
Tattooist: Giboloco (from São Paulo, Brazil).

If you get one of these designs or any other the other tattoo designs from my site please email me a photo I always love seeing them on skin and seeing what ideas people add to them.
Mayan symbol for the moon
This design is based on two Mayan symbols for the moon.
This would make a good tattoo of the moon if you want to know the meaning but maybe done want to be so obvious about it.
