As a Scorpio, your reputation definitely precedes you. And, TBH, who can blame people for thinking you're an impulsive and jealous sex-fanatic who isn't afraid of calling people out? It's not not true. But I know if you look underneath that hard exterior, there's a ton of depth below all that chaotic energy. You're intense, but that quality also means that you love deeply, you're extremely loyal, and you have a lot of feelings. You also know what you like, and you're super specific with your tastes—so when it comes to tattoos, there's no way you're getting any random design inked on your body forever. I truly get you, Scorpio, so I went ahead and found the 20 best Scorpio tattoos that are anything but basic. Prepare to fall in love.
