Crab tattoos

Crab Tattoo Designs - The crab is a lunar symbol. This may be due to the fact that it sheds its shell, just as the moon sheds its phases. In any event, it is associated with the feminine, the ocean, and motherhood.

The Crab is the fourth sign of the Zodiac. Its place in the heavens came about when it nipped the Greek hero, Heracles, who was battling with the monster, Hydra. The crab got crushed for its efforts, but Hera, the mother deity who was then at odds with Heracles, honoured the crab's courageous efforts by placing the crustacean as the constellation, Cancer, in the heavens. (For more info on those born under this sign, check out the Zodiac symbols .)

In many cultures, crabs are considered a culinary delicacy and are widely sought after for the delicious flavour of their meat.

Depicted with its arms and legs radiating out from its body, the Chinese crab is also a sun symbol, making it a popular talisman, even today.

Chinese legend tells of the crab's usefulness and protective nature. The emperor put it to use ridding his abode of the scorpions, fleas, mosquitoes, and mice that disturbed his peace. Again, the crab lent a helping claw by hiding in a water pitcher to catch the thief who dipped his hand in it. Another crab association refers to its forward and backwards motion, 'crab walking', suggesting perhaps dishonesty or hypocrisy, or the inability to decide something one way or the other. Because they move sideways across the land, the term 'crab landing' describes landing an aircraft in a cross-wind.

Most crabs come with a hard carapace the - or outer shell - that protects their delicate underparts. Other members of the species, such as the Hermit Crab, find a suitable shell and occupy it as a virtual suit of armor, although, as they grow, they must abandon their cramped quarters to find a spacious new home. The crab has two frontal claws or pincers, which often grow to enormous size, plus six legs. All crabs use their claws for feeding and defending themselves and males use their claws to intimidate other males who may be potential r...
