Taurus is one of the oldest and most prominent constellations of the northern celestial hemisphere. It is one of the twelve zodiac constellations that comes with the symbol of a Unicode resembling a bull’s head.
The term ‘Taurus’ is a Latin word meaning bull. The constellation consists of nineteen main stars and has Auriga, Aries, Cetus, Orion, Perseus, Eridanus and Gemini as the bordering constellations. As a zodiac sign, Taurus is the second astrological sign in the modern zodiac calendar, ruled by Venus and is the fixed modality of three earth signs including Virgo and Capricorn. Taurus people are identified as ones being determined, straightforward, loyal and stubborn personalities. They are both physically and mentally strong. They are easily prone to anger and can be terrifying when provoked. They do not open their hearts for anybody, but when they do, they love intensely.

This tattoo at its first glance appears to be a complex bull tattoo. The stars, the planet behind it and the astronaut below might look irrelevant and even exceptionally crowded to some.

This tattoo, unlike other ones in this list, does not contain the prominent nine stars that make the basic skeleton of the constellation, but some nine dots are there to mark the line breakings making it simple and clear linework. The stars are drawn but as neighbouring figures of the Taurus constellation.
