A few years ago my dad was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer. Just before he started his chemo, he came home with a brand new tattoo. It was a bull that had my name across it in a scroll. Naturally it was because I was a Taurus and quite bull headed but down to earth.
Fast forward a couple months and he has since passed on. I have always wanted a tattoo, and was thinking of something I could get in the memory of my father, since he had gotten himself tattooed for me. Since he was a Taurus and just as bull headed as I, I decided on the basic Taurus symbol for my tattoo. In essence, the tattoo is both a symbol of myself and my father as one.
Not only that, but through previous research I had learned that the Taurus astrological symbol is said to rule over the neck and throat (seeing as Taurus’s can often be lazy or gluttonous). So, the placement of the neck was my first choice for this one. As an added bonus, it’s easy to cover up if needed for work or other situations where tattoos aren’t readily accepted.
