There are some tattoos that you can't just have one of. One of my close friends is this way about sacred hearts and she has about 10 of them tattooed on her body. For me, it's crescent moons. Right now, I have five of them incorporated into various tattoos and I'd love to get more. Why so many moons? Well, first off I think the shape is aesthetically pleasing. Second, I love the symbolism. I love anything witchy, dark and mysterious, which the moon certainly represents. I've been this way long before I could legally get tattooed and I don't see myself changing any time soon.

Many collectors out there share the same affinity for moon tattoos as I do and there are plenty of fantastic designs by world renowned artists. I think this comes from it's versatility, as it can be easily translated into any style and can be designed to be masculine or incredibly feminine. Plus, the moon is universal, as we're all staring up at the same sky every night no matter where we are in the world.

Quite a few Americans feel a connection to the moon because of the significance the moon landing had on society. Neil Armstrong stepped foot on the moon on July 20th, 1969 and over fifty years later, we still celebrate this incredible scientific accomplishment. In honor of National Moon Day, we're celebrating this historic event by sharing some of our favorite moon tattoos from talented artists around the world.
