Tattoos have always been used to show a person's sense of individualism. The artwork or graphic text that a person has tattooed on their body is an expression of their own unique sense of style, humor or outlook on life. This can take the form of a name of a loved one, a particular symbol that is meaningful, or a slogan that has meaning.
Many people these days choose to have their zodiac sign as part of the artwork they tattooed on their bodies. This is another way to express their individuality, and the ability to use very creative artwork to illustrate an astrological sign adds to its popularity.
A Gemini tattoo is an example of this choice in tattoo art. The symbolism of the twins in the zodiac is the "twin", which represents the duality of the twins. Many people who choose a Gemini tattoo prefer one of the ancient Greek or Roman symbols for the sign, based on the mythology of their particular beliefs. The Roman numeral "II" or the Greek symbol for twins – often confused with the symbol for "pi", the mathematical symbol – are the most commonly used representations in a twin tattoo, but there are many other ways to express this symbol ,
In fact, any pairing of symbols can be used as an indication of duality in a Gemini tattoo. Two faces that mirror each other are a common theme in a Gemini tattoo. Sometimes a butterfly is used, whose two sides of the body and wings mirror each other. Thematic representations such as the "good and bad" sides of the twins are often used.
