Cancer is, as you've guessed, the astrological sign that I hold nearest and dearest to my heart because it is of course my sign! Hence, the crab and the moon. The crab being the zodiac symbol and the moon being our ruling planet.
I plan on making this a two part series by doing an additional crab illustration. I've been sketching but it hasn't really clicked just yet.
This little number I came up with is a waning crescent moon, which is the moon I was born under, with poppies, peonies and lithianthus blooming from it. The flowers and the outer circle also represent a flower crown symbolizing summer and every moon maiden's inner flower child. It was originally suppose to be my first tattoo. This piece is very special to me to say the least.
