Creative Astrology Tattoo Ideas for Every Zodiac Sign — See Photos


Tattoos are a gratifying way to adorn your body with meaningful symbols, names you might regret later, and even animals that simply look cute. If you’re struggling to figure out what ink to get next (or first), consider a zodiac-inspired tattoo. 

Whether or not you can prattle endlessly about all the intricacies of your birth chart doesn’t really matter; zodiac tattoos can look awesome on anyone. There are myriad ways to incorporate astrology into your body art: You can choose one particular placement in your birth chart to represent, like your moon sign, or stay classic with your “main” sun sign. (If you want a deeper understanding of the sun, moon, and other signs in your chart, this handy explainer will help.) 

Each astrological sign is represented by an animal or figure, a symbol, and a constellation that can be used as inspiration for your tattoo. You can choose to tattoo one of the three or combine them into one cohesive piece. The signs are also are divided into three natural elements — fire, water, air, and earth — that make for great tattoo imagery. 

Whether or not you know the difference between your sun, moon, and rising sign, let this guide on zodiac tattoos (presented chronologically by sign, of course) persuade you.

Aries 

Aries is considered the first sign of the zodiac, represented by a symbol that’s shaped like a V with curved tips. The fire sign is also represented by the ram, as illustrated below in the design created by Texas-based tattoo artist Isabella Almaleh. Behind the detailed ram, she added a crescent moon surrounded by a shadow of dot-work and added a wreath of long, slender leaves around the whole piece. The red of the ink is apt for the fiery sign.

Instead of focusing the whole piece on a ram, you can symbolise one with accents, as Australian tattooist Phryn Hosler did with the rabbit tattoo below. Phryn created a flash sheet full of these cute rabbits that are customised for each zodiac sign. Here, the rabbit has curly horns and hooves, representing the ram, plus the Aries symbol on the animal’s chest. The tiny stars surrounding the small animal make this dainty art excessively adorable.

For Aries-inspired ink, astrologer Sophie Saint Thomas says to “go big or go home,” and tattoo artist Lee Mullen did just that for his client with the goddess below. Colour is all over this gorgeous piece, starting with the purple hair, the pink flower, and green leaves. There are also traces of pink around her face with the fire sign’s curved symbol on the cheek. Lee added curved ram horns to the woman, giving this tattoo its astrological bend.

Taurus

The earth sign Taurus can be illustrated in many different ways. The sign’s symbol, for example, is a circle with a wavy line that borders the top of the shape. Of course, the constellation is also an option, or the bull, which New York City-based artist Marissa Monroe drew with precision below. She focused on just the bull’s head and made it whimsical and almost cartoon-like. There are pink and black stars around the head and on the eyes. The tiny star hanging from the animal’s nose ring is a vibrant pink, a perfect example of how to add a small touch of colour to your tattoo.

Chicago-based tattoo artist Ceci Shalitzin drew a goddess with curved horns. Around the base of either horn is a series of circles that almost look like pearl necklaces. The woman has loose, wavy hair that Ceci detailed painstakingly. She added a sideways crescent moon on the woman’s face plus the Taurus symbol right in the middle of her chest. The flowers and leaves underneath the goddess add a natural element to the tattoo that represents the earth sign well.

Gemini 

Geminis may get a bad rep on social media, but the possibilities for Gemini-themed tattoos are too good to avoid. Instead of an animal, the air sign is represented by a pair of twins and a symbol shaped like a column with curved lines on either end.
