Small Tattoo Designs Based On Your Zodiac Sign
There’s nothing quite like the charm of carrying the sign of the cosmic bodies you are connected to
If you have finally decided that you are going to get your first piece of ink, don't be frustrated if you don’t know what you want. If you are looking for suggestions, let us tell you something: there’s one thing you cannot change about yourself and that’s your birth date. Instead of going for a tattoo of someone’s name or a random word, think about going for something related to your zodiac sign since it’s “something that belongs to you”.
For those individuals who want to get inked but want to keep things on the down low, we suggest minimalistic tattoos of constellations which are associated with each star sign or just a small symbol of the star sign.
So if you’re down for a small zodiac tattoo design, we’re bringing you some little tattoo designs from the best artists around to provide some inspiration for your next inking session.
Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)
What sets the people born under the sign of Aquarius apart from the rest are their highly intellectual abilities. They are deep thinkers, independent and freedom loving.
Pisces (February 19 – March 20)
Pisceans are a water sign who are known for being gentle and are dreamers.
One of the most obvious tattoo designs that they could opt for is the symbol of their zodiac sign, the fish, the animal that marks the constellation for the star sign.
Aries (March 21 – April 19)
The name Aries is Latin for ram.
Aries people are highly energetic and can work with extreme clarity, showing good leadership qualities and optimism.
Arieses know exactly where they are headed, and their ram tattoo should say the same.
Taurus (April 20 – May 20)
Taurus means 'the bull' in Latin.
If you fall under the Taurus star sign, you probably have an eye for beauty, and enjoy the pleasures that life has to offer — food, drink, sex and other luxuries.
Taureans are also known for being reliable, practical and sensual.
Gemini (May 21 – June 20)
The two in roman numerals in this particular zodiac tattoo design stands for the Gemini twins that symbolize the star sign.
You could also integrate the zodiac symbol into a larger, more personalized tattoo.
Cancer (June 21 – July 22)
Cancer is Latin for crab, and Cancerians are sentimental and lovers of family and traditions.
If you are not fond of Zodiac symbols, what better tattoo to represent the connection to both material and spiritual worlds than the crab?
Leo (July 23 – August 22)
Leo means lion in Latin, and those who fall under this star sign are associated with characteristics such as pride, regality, and leadership.
The symbol represents a script form of the Greek letter lambda, which is the first letter of the greek word for lion. Optionally, you can get a tattoo of a fierce lion, which is always a good option for natural leaders like Leos.
Virgo (August 23 – September 22)
Virgo, Latin for virgin, is the sixth sign of the Zodiac and an earth sign.
This minimalistic zodiac symbol tattoo design is perfect for those Virgos who want to get inked but don’t want to make it obvious.
Libra (September 23 – October 22)
People who fall under the Libra sign and want a subtle tattoo design can go minimal with this dotwork style Libra zodiac symbol. If you need more ideas, Librans enjoy being around people and so, should look into getting matching tattoos with a best friend or family member.
Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)
Scorpio, Latin for scorpion, is the eighth sign of the Zodiac. Scorpios are very passionate, determined and will go to great lengths to search out the truth.
If you are not into Zodiac symbology, a small scorpion is a great idea.
Getting inked the arachnid that symbolizes not only your star sign but also one of the most prominent characteristics of people born under this zodiac — not aggressive unless provoked — is always a great option. The element associated with Scorpio is water.
Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)
Sagittarius, Latin for archer, is the ninth sign of the Zodiac.
Sagittarians are most connected with freedom and are known for their love of travel. Hence, something that denotes their passion for journeys and adventure would be the ideal tattoo design.
The element associated with Sagittarius is fire. Hence, a design of this element or a design that includes it would be ideal.
Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)
Capricorn, Latin for sea-goat or mountain goat, is the tenth sign of the Zodiac.
Capricorns have natural leadership qualities and are good at taking responsibility.
If you are not into symbols and constellations, the best thing if you fall under this star sign would be to get word tattoos with declarations instead of reminders. Or, if you’re not fond of words, go for a symbol that’s personal and meaningful to you. Ensure that this word or symbol stands for a future aspiration and not a past memory.
If you prefer bigger, more prominent tattoos you can opt for a design or a symbol that embodies characteristics of your star sign, or even something related to the element (earth, fire, air, and water) associated with your star sign.
