The universe is fascinating; the planets have always represented mysteries and great questions. But they can also have another type of magic meaning which comes from the worship of our ancestors for the celestial bodies. Of all the planets in the Milky Way, Saturn is the best known and most easily identifiable due to the appearance of its cosmic rings.
Some additional details on Saturn
Saturn is the sixth planet in the solar system and the second in size. It is distinguished by its brilliant rings, which were first noticed in 1610 by Galileo. The rings of Saturn are very interesting, because they are composed of particles which rotate at a speed of 48,000 km / h.
The name Saturn was given to it by the Romans. Saturn, in Roman mythology, was the son of Jupiter. Besides Saturn and still according to Roman mythology, the Romans named the other planets Mercury, Mars and Jupiter, in addition to the sun and the moon.

Saturn's tattoos usually represent strength, determination and constancy but they can also represent restriction, responsibility and protection. In Antiquity, the planets evoked the will of the gods. Currently, they can be associated with the signs of the zodiac. In the latter, they explain the changes that take place in our life or in our behavior. The tattooed designs of Saturn are very popular and are not distinguished by their rings. They can be bright or simple in color, just black ink. We can accompany them with elements like the sun, the moon, the stars, etc.
Planets are part of our life because we have known them since we were children and, thanks to the mysteries which abound outside the earth, they are even more interesting. Saturn's tattoos can be a tribute to the beauty of the unknown around us.
