Enhancing Your Zodiac Tattoo Design

Enhancing Your Zodiac Tattoo Design

Human beings have always been enthralled by celestial bodies. As such, zodiac symbols, also know as sun signs, have been objects of fascination for millenniums now. This longstanding attraction to zodiac symbols has translated itself into tattoo art, and is capturing the attention of thousands across the globe today. Zodiac tattoos are enormously popular among astrology fanatics and casual admirers alike, but the wisdom of getting one of your own depends on how much you believe in the tenets and influences of astrology.


Zodiac tattoos are believed to disclose a lot about a person’s personality. Even if you’re not an astrological aficionado, you could still get a meaningful and gorgeous zodiac tattoo. An increasingly widening range of tattoo styles and designs have turned astrology into art. Traditionally, however, the following pictures are associated with each design:
  • Aquarius (January 21-February 19) - the water-carrier, normally a man carrying buckets of water balanced across his shoulders.
  • Pisces (February 20-March 20) - a single fish, or as two fishes swimming in opposite directions.
  • Aries (March 21-April 20) - a ram, even though Aries the name of the Greek god of war.
  • Taurus (April 21-May 21) - a bull, drawn either with its horns lowered and ready to attack, or just standing with its head held high.
  • Gemini (May 22-June 21) - male twins, frequently drawn as warriors.
  • Cancer (June 22-July 22) - a realistic or stylized crab.
  • Leo (July 23-August 22) - a proud lion with a magnificent mane.
  • Virgo (August 23-September 23) - a beautiful and virginal young woman in flowing robes.
  • Libra (September 24-October 23) - a pair of old-fashioned scales in perfect balance.
  • Scorpio (October 24-November 22) - a lethal scorpion, tail curled.
  • Sagittarius (November 23-December 22) - an archer, often drawn as a centaur.
  • Capricorn (December 23-January 20) - a goat.
Although the above mentioned classic zodiac images are widely known and instantly recognizable, you should not limit your options to such because there are other countless designs and styles to choose from. The allure of zodiac signs stems from mythical symbolism and their corresponding astrological meanings. To intensify that inherent magnetism in your tattoo, you may consider incorporating other symbolic undertones in your design. Here are some suggestions:

You can choose black ink or colors, and bold tribal-style designs or lines with an Asian or Celtic flair. You can also incorporate zodiac symbols into larger or more intricate designs.

Each zodiac sign has its own color, although astrologers still disagree about the matching of colors with the signs. For instance, Taurus is represented by pink, white, or blue, depending on what reference you use. You may want to use one or a combination of those colors to tattoo your design.

You can also choose your tattoo’s colors according to your birth stone. Birthstone charts vary according to the culture where they originated as well. But these charts give you a few color options while still being technically correct.

Aside from gemstones, certain flowers are also connected to each sign. The Aries’ flower is tiger lily. Cancers might choose a tattoo integrating honeysuckle and pomegranate. Astrologers may again have different lists on this, so be sure to research carefully on your own. You could also incorporate the element earth, air, fire, or water.
