Tribal Scorpion Tattoo always signifiesdanger and killer instincts. It is largely because of their predator behaviour. It is also a beautiful animal but it rarely gets the justice it deserves when it is depicted on tattoos. Often, they are drawn in a generic way. The fact is that scorpions have different breeds too. Each breed is unique and may fit different personalities.
Tribal Scorpion Tattoo: Albino Scorpions
In the world of animals (I mean wildlife), getting an albino of any kind is like hitting a billion dollar jackpot. One of the most common characteristics of albino scorpions is that they don’t have eyes. Most of albino scorpions were found in Mexico and all of them were eyeless. They think that this may be because they were born and raised in caves making the eyes useless for their survival. That is nature working its magic. When something is useless, nature gets rid of this. In fact, the absence of pigmentation may also have been removed because the skin doesn’t need it in caves where its dark all the time.
Tribal Scorpion Tattoo: Red Scorpions
The Red Scorpion is like the ninja of the scorpion race. They are common but not often spotted. They live among us but we don’t see them. They are one of the most venomous. They have an orange body and their legs are transparent red. It’s quite a sight.
They hunt at night. They are also one of the smallest of all breeds but they are dangerous. When it feels threatened, it can emit its venom that can put its prey in coma. When a human is bitten by a red scorpion, death can follow within a matter of hours. There is no known anti-venom.
Tribal Scorpion Tattoo: Blue Scorpions
Blue scorpion may be one of the friendliest breeds. Their venom is now being used in other countries, like Cuba, as an anti-cancer cell. They may also be used as pets. They can live with other species, even with other scorpions. They are not cannibalistic for as long as they get enough food and water. They are forest scorpions although some blue scorpions have also been found in deserts.
Tribal Scorpion Tattoo: Emperor Scorpions
They are not as dangerous as their name may make them sound to be. In fact, their venom is supposed to be weak. They pinch is painful but the venom is not that strong. They got their name for their size. They are the largest scorpion breed around. They are, however, beautiful. They are black but glossy. They shine when the sunlight hits them. They also hunt during the day, unlike most scorpions.

They are also called Gold scorpions and often mistaken for the Yellow Scorpions. However, the DeathstalkerScropions’ venom is much stronger.
