Apollo is the god of music, dancing, prophecy and healing and an integral character in Greek mythology. He is the twin brother of Artemis and the son of Zeus and Leto. He is the embodiment of youth, beauty, and agility. He is a healer who has an impact on music, arts and education. His association with the Sun over time solidified his place among the most venerated of the Olympian gods. Even though Apollo wasn’t primarily a god of war he was feared for his ability to bring plague and illness with his arrows and known for his guidance and protection in times of war. Apollo is a great concept for tattoos, especially for those seeking something unique and distinct from the more common depictions of Poseidon and Zeus.


The goddess of love, Aphrodite needs no introduction. Born in Paphos, Cyprus, she’s a huge part of the island’s history and culture. Aphrodite has been a major muse for Western artists, inspiring iconic works like the Venus de Milo sculpture and Botticelli’s Birth of Venus, celebrating female beauty.
