Here's a nice tattoo from Rate My Ink. Not the brightest picture but still, pretty awesome, eh? By clicking on the image you will see the larger version and be able to take in the details. FYI, Coyolxauhqui is the Aztec moon and earth goddess. When her mother became pregnant, by stuffing a sky fallen ball of feathers in her chest, Coyolxauhqui and her brothers, outraged by the scandal, attempted to end her life. But before they could their brother Huitzilopochtli emerged fully grown and armed from his mother. He then killed all of his siblings and threw Coyolxauhqui's head high into the air in the hope that his mother might be comforted by her face in the heavens.
