The Sun is the fundamental star for our planetary system. It is our resource of primary life and for this reason it has always inspired curiosity and adoration. There are numerous reasons why sun tattoos can have personal meanings, as the Sun has had symbolic and religious meanings in the many ancient cultures that have populated the Earth.

Over time, cultures have created many myths about the Sun and these beliefs were often expressed in their tattoos, where the Sun usually evoked concepts such as strength, growth, vitality and fertility, among others. Let’s see some examples of different interpretations of the image of the Sun in the various cultures of history.
The Aztecs used tattoos depicting the sun for rituals, using them in certain parts of the body to express their devotion to one god or another. These Aztec tattoos could be small with simple or large and very complex patterns. The Maya instead saw the tattoos with the sun as a form of protection and to express the fact of being a chosen people, and also as a way to decide who was the leader. The American Indians, on the other hand, considered tattoos depicting the sun as symbols of creation and the destructive power of war and also used them as a form of protection against the evil of the world. For the late Caribbean people of the Taínos Indians, tattoos were more than just body decorations. For them they were expressions of destiny. In this way, the higher the tattoo was in the body, the closer they felt to their gods.
There is a common typology in the sphere of tattoos that represent the sun, and they are those tattoos that combine the Sun and the Moon and sometimes even the stars. This usually happens in more feminine tattoos, creating a new meaning, since in general they represent the union between man and woman.
