Crabs live in nutrient rich oceans where tides rise and fall twice every day. This change in terrain and temperature has caused the crabs to develop a hard outer shell for protection. This has become a very distinct characteristic of Cancer. Cancer can use the hard outer shell of their home as their protection and hold their feelings quietly behind your own walls. But the Cancerian is not totally unsociable, there is a time to them to socialize and a time to be solitary, and this is part of the apparent contradiction in their nature. So you while you may like the idea of a Cancer tattoo on your breast, it may also indicated you have a wall in front of you.
Crabs have two large claws, which mean they can hold onto things tightly, especially from the past. So it is very likely for them to hold grudges. Cancer are very loyal people and have a difficult time letting go. But Cancer can also bring those they love inside the safety of their outer shell while you nurture them. Cancer love is protective, but can also be overwhelming sometimes. Cancer tattoos on your breasts are lovely but be careful of the claws, it may pinch your love ones too hard and restrain them.
Like a Crab in its natural defensive environment, a Cancer attack can consist of luring their opponent into their territory and then hurting them. As Cancer feel their way through life, building their security by developing their home and family relationships, because of their suppressed feelings and events they hang on to, their unexpressed anger can turn into resentment and depression. The need to protect yourself and your family is extremely important to you. Therefore, you may be undecided between having a name tattooed on your breast or a Cancer tattoo.
