Blue crab tattoo means beauty and health. Blue crab is a crustacean distributed in the western Atlantic, the South Indian Ocean of Australia, the Pacific coast of Central America and the Gulf of Mexico. Because their meat is difficult to harvest, they are rarely used as food on the Pacific coast of Central America. They are the representative crustaceans in Maryland and an important local catch.
Blue crab is one of the most beautiful and recognizable crab species in the world. Its scientific name comes from the Greek words “beautiful” and “swimmer”. They have noble and slender sapphire blue legs and front claws. The female blue crab has red dots on the top of the blue crab claw, just like the ruby on the Queen’s scepter. Its beautiful appearance and beautiful color are one of the characteristics of the blue crab. The hind legs are paddle shaped, which is also an excellent “swimmer”.
