Man has been moved by the wonders of astrology for thousands if not millions of years. One of the most popular astrological signs is the Gemini, which is associated with versatility, wittiness, eloquence, intellect, youthfulness, adaptability and liveliness. These are strong traits that most men associate with – a feat that has made tattoos made from this zodiac sign quite popular. But more than just that, there are many more reasons behind the growing popularity of Gemini tattoos for men. We take a look at such tattoos, their significance and why they are popular.

The Twins

The design of twins primarily borrows its symbolism from the sun sign. You can get one with twin angels, twin boys, twin girls etc. Likewise, other twin layouts like twin snakes, twin birds and twin animals are quite popular. The main advantage of the twins design is that it can be presented using two different color combinations breaking monotony and creating a whole new world of imagination.

The Glyph

The glyph is a pictograph or hieroglyphic design emanating from the number two in the Roman numeral (II). As simple as it looks, it provides one with a wide variety of options making it possible to deliver a classy and imaginative design. Perhaps the reason why the glyph Gemini tattoos for men are popular is because roman number II depicts duality. Of course, its design isn’t too fancy or complicated making it suitable for guys of all age cohorts. This pattern is best tattooed on the back, wrist or arm.

The Text

Yet another popular type of Gemini tattoos for guys is the Text variety. For instance, you can get worlds like “Proud Gemini” or “Gemini” tattooed. The text can also be accompanied by a simple design of the twins or glyph. For those looking to explore more tattooing options, you can get creative with the Gemini ambigram, which is extremely artistic and dynamic. As a tradition, the text tattoos are made in navy blue or black colors – but since tattoos are all about uniqueness, you can experiment with other colors as well. The fact that text allows one to use words and symbols makes it a popular choice among men who identify with Gemini attributes.

The Gemini Constellation

A well thought-out Gemini constellation pattern not only comes with a bit more excitement but also freshness. In order to make a constellation, the designer has to join stars in a systematic manner to portray the twins holding hands. A constellation design can only be identified if the stars are interconnected with lines creating the image of twins. You can take the fun a notch higher by getting one of the twins made on your arm and the other, on your soulmate’s (However, this can only be a good idea if your partner shares the same Zodiac sign with you). The reason why Gemini Constellation is popular is because it offers a few more ways for one to express themselves. Men like it because it gives more options than the other three.
