Tattoo Ideas for Zodiac Sign Cancer

Updated on November 14, 2011

Charmingly romantic, cuddly and cuddling, Cancerians belong to the nurturing segment of the human species. Cancer is a water sign ruled by the Moon. If your birth date is between June 22 and July 22 your Sunsign is Cancer, which means at the time of your birth Sun was in the constellation Cancer of the zodiac. Comfortable with feelings and intimacy, Cancerians are good with people known to them, but they tend to get embarrassed with strangers. Crabs as Cancerians are labeled are normally shy people who love to hide themselves in shells!

Cancer Love Life

Having Moon at the ruling position, Cancerians are generally exceptionally romantic people! They can be quite impractical in life. Fantasy and imagination are the driving forces in their love life. At the same time, they have a tendency to shut people out and for all their professed sensitiveness they fail to recognize the hurt they can cause to their lovers!

Compatibility Guide

***** Capricorn, Pisces

**** Taurus, Scorpio, Virgo

*** Libra, Cancer, Aries

** Leo, Aquarius

* Gemini, Sagittarius

This sign suffers form lack of self-esteem which can get easily punctured by perceived insults and imagined rebuffs. By and large they make faithful and devoted spouses with strong family bonding. Unfaithful Cancerians usually have mother hang-ups. In bed if they feel cared and nurtured, chances of a sex-laden night is on the cards!

Turn Ons: Food, foreplay and sex

Turn Offs: One-night stands, female Casanovas, lack of foreplay

Cancer Tattoo Ideas

The most popular Cancer tattoo design is the glyph sign which is shown as two crab claws facing each other in opposite directions and looks like two sideways number 9s. Alternatively you can ink designs of a crab, or your ruling cosmic object Moon! If you believe in astrology you can ink one of the following designs to improve your love life.

  1. The Crab
  2. Two 9s in opposite directions
  3. The Moon
  4. Designs symbolize water like rain or river

      Well, this is the best of your Zodiac hubs on tattoos...because this is my sign! Your analysis of we Cancers is spot on, of course. Image #4 is my favorite as I like simple designs with lots of white space. Thanks for an excellent read, which I voted up and shared with those tattoo-loving nieces of mine :)
