However, they also represent resilience, overcoming hard times, and personal growth. In addition, little clouds in the night sky, like the picture above, can look glorious.

You don’t have to believe in astrology to appreciate the beauty of constellations. Even scientists use them for mapping out the great unknown of space. You can choose any of the 88 constellations to tattoo, and if you believe in astrology, then the choice is easier. Like, the picture above is a tattoo of the Scorpius constellation with the element of an outline tattoo of a whale. Streaks of blue watercolour going through the design are surely giving it the vibe of the night sky.

Hence, including an owl in your night sky tattoos can be brilliant, like the tattoo on the picture above where some clouds are seen floating in the night sky at the top of the design, above the head of the owl. Additionally, owl tattoos represent wisdom, hope, magic, vision, and more things.
