Meaning of scarab tattoos
The beetle is a beetle, black in color, which can even scare those who are not very fond of insects. However, its very ancient origin is what arouses in many people the desire to mark it on the skin. The drawing of beetles occurs since Ancient Egypt, a historical period when this animal was seen as sacred.
For the ancient Egyptians, the black beetle represents the Sun, the one that is reborn from itself, and also symbolizes the cycle of day and night. Divine resurrection is also a striking sign for scarab tattoos. He was known as Kepri, the god of the Rising Sun.
Representations of the scarab in Egyptian art depict the animal carrying the Sun on its paws. That's because he does this with his excrement, with the view that he would be reborn from his own decomposition. It was an important lucky charm, carrying the secret of eternal return to life.
