Why: This girl's tattoo is supposed to look like it. The only part of that thing I ever recognize is Orion's belt.
Answer: Oh, look. He's got a shield and a sword and a little dagger. And her tattoo is just backward.
The More You Know: Orion is also called The Hunter. His right armpit is Betelgeuse - something like "the giant central one" - and his left armpit is Bellatrix, or "female warrior." Maybe he's clubbing a lion...?
From the Southern Hemisphere, he looks diff:
- In Australia and New Zealand, the belt and sword are sometimes called the Saucepan or Pot.
- In South Africa, Orion's Belt is called Drie Konings (Three Kings) or the Drie Susters (Three Sisters).
- In Spain and Latin America, the same 3 stars are known as "The Three Marys."
