Ancient Mesoamerican populations, such as Aztecs, used the eight-pointed star to represent the sun, identified by the god Tonatiuh. Like in many mythologies, in Aztec beliefs too the sun was thought to burn in fire at sunset in order to grow young again on the following day.

This design was requested by Simone.

The pattern in the middle represents meeting, union.

  hi i´m mexican and actually my name is Tonatiuh, so i goggled my name and found this page, which is a great page ´cause since a few years i want a tattoo related with my name... this tattoo based on the aztec god of the sun is terrific, i liked it, but i would like to see the tonatiuh face or at least one of his eyes on a tribal tattoo...
