Capricorn. Zodiac Tattoo Sketch by Nelsonito Capricorn. Zodiac Tattoo Sketch by Nelsonito
1) The central figure of the sketch is the Capricorn in the likeness of a young woman with a fish tail. Trinity symbol (ibex, human, fish) is not accidental - the number three is favorable for the Capricorn. 

2) On the womans head big strong ibex horns are stand out. Her tail is covered with powerful segmented shell that symbolizes inner strength, impenetrability and ability to stand for herself. The disk with the Sun and Moon images covers a delicate, feminine essence of mystical secret duality. A few will be allowed to reach the exposed truth, which it shall be allowed. 

3) The Moon symbolizes, poetry, romance, fantasy, chimera, and creative inspiration. 
The fact, that the girl is holding the moon means will control under the influens of the heavenly bodies. They all carry good as well as bad energy, and we need to show the efforts to separate the wheat from the chaff. 

4) Usually the Sun symbolizes life and prosperity, however, we should not forget that sunlight can blind, and the excess of it can turn fertile soil into desert. The most striking example - the swastika - an ancient sun symbol - in the XX century has become a symbol of blindness and eclipse. On the sketch, the solar disk is partially covered with the Moon, that means the need of balance and sense of proportion.
