If you feel strongly associated with your sign, you may find that a tattoo like this can tell the world a lot about the type of person you are. Whether you are a Leo and proud of it, or fun loving Sagittarius who wants everyone to know that you're where the party is, zodiac tattoos can be a perfect way to tell the world who you are. However, coming up with a unique zodiac design for your tattoo can be something that you need a little more help on, so check out some of the design elements that might appeal to you.
When you are thinking about zodiac tattoos, the most basic designs that you can choose will often be the astrological symbols that are used in Western astrology to represent each sign. These designs are simple and straightforward but most people disregard them due to the fact that they are so plain. However, there is no need for these signs to be plain at all! For instance, think about how startling they arrow symbol for Sagittarius would be if you incorporated the design with a design of flames, the element that is associated with that sign. You can drape the sign in flames or you can fill in the line of the image with yellow and orange.
Unifying the symbol with the element is a common motif for zodiac tattoos, and if you are putting together a tattoo design for yourself, this can make some wonderful images. For instance, Pieces is obviously a water sign, and typically it is represented by two fish facing opposite directions. What kind of fish appeal to you visually and do you feel any association with certain types of fish? Pieces can be represented by two goldfish, two dolphins (even though, like you, they are mammals, not fish) or even two sharks, and each one will create a different image and a different feeling. It is important to look for a design that is going to symbolize your attitude to the world, and using details like this one can be an important way to do it.
Another design motif that you might want to consider when thinking about zodiac tattoos could be the idea of the birth flowers. Just like people have birthstones, they also have birth flowers, and incorporating those flowers with your tattoo design can be a great way to move forward. Consider what your options are going to be like by looking up your own birth flower. For instance, June is split between Taurus and Gemini, and the birth flower is the rose. Think about how lovely a bull with a wreath of roses might look, or consider two beautiful twins holding roses or tending a rose garden.
If you are thinking about designing a Zodiac tattoo, there is a good chance that you feel that the stars have a great deal to do with the way that we live our lives here on earth. With that in mind, consider the idea of getting the constellation itself on your skin. If you are looking for something that is very subtle, getting stars in the shape of your Zodiac constellation can be a lovely way to go. Design very simple diamond shaped stars or go for something a little more dramatic with several colors and a more angular, multi-pointed design. On the other hand, if you want something that is going to cover a lot of skin with color, you can have a night sky emblazoned on your back or your shoulder!
Another aspect that you might like to consider is the application of both a sun sign and a moon sign in your tattoo design. The sun sign is typically what is used for things like newspaper horoscopes, but some people subscribe to the theory that the sun sign only gives a part of the picture. They believe that the sun sign tells you the face that you present to the world; it is your moon sign that tells you about how you feel deep down! You need to know the time of your birth to find a moon sign, but when you do, you might have two different signs that rule your personality. Consider how well you are represented by this and consider how two Zodiac designs might suit you. For instance, if you would like to combine the aspects of Virgo and Aries, you might choose to have a beautiful girl calming a fierce ram or even riding it!
Remember that Zodiac signs also have associations with planets as well as stars. For instance, consider the crab that represents the Cancer and consider the fact that the moon is strongly associated with that sign. A lovely detailed moon being held by a crab or somehow incorporated with a crab design might be precisely what you are looking for. Capricorn, the sea goat, can be shown as jumping the rings of Saturn, while Leo, the lion, can be shown combined with a sun motif.
When you are putting together tattoo designs and you want something that is really going to represent you, consider what design elements of the Zodiac cry out to you. What's your sign can mean a lot, so consider how you can move forward with your own Zodiac tattoos!
