*Alocsin, thanks for taking the time to drop by and comment. Great choices. I like the one on top also, as you say, the more traditional design.
*Hyphenbird, thanks for dropping by and commenting. You're absolutely right. The sun is associated to more cultures then any other symbol.
*Faith Reaper, appreciate all your comments and time my friend. Great question and I would be happy to answer. I have my children and wife tattooed with a wolf, which is symbolic for family. I also have a Celtic cross, which is my heritage. I was able to cover up my previous tattoos.

Hi thelyricwriter, I just wanted to comment on your latest hub, but there was no place to submit a comment. It may be my computer, as it has been acting up lately. So, I just wanted to say it was another awesome hub. I believe you are the world's expert in tattos! Do you personally have any tattoos, if so, what are they, if you don't mind sharing? In His Love, Faith Reaper

This is a great Hub. I love the sun and having spent much time at Native American gatherings, I understand how the sun has affected cultures for generations. Since we could not exist without it, we are fascinated by Old Sol. You did a wonderful job presenting these tattoos.
