Bull Tattoo Meaning and Pictures

Bull Tattoo meaning – because the bull is a strong animal, it symbolize strength and power (like a panda bear tattoo / bear). For some it also represents the Zodiac (the second) astrological sign, which is Taurus or the bull. Altough the bull means something big, yet with a lot of strength, for the astrological sign for the bull means: love, beauty and, of course, harmony. The people born in the Taurus astrological sign are “under the” Venus planet or Aphrodite (from Greek). She is the goddess of love, yet the bull tattoo can also mean procreation, fertility and virility. Do you want a couple of bull tattoo sets/pictures?
