If you’re seeking a body art design that is significant and meaningful you may want to consider an astrology tattoo.
What is Astrology?
Astrology is the study of birth signs and planetary movements and the effect they have on one another. This includes the significance of the impact they have on personal character traits and even human relationships.
Astrology encompasses metaphysical studies. Often considered the “Mother of all Sciences”, astrology is founded on theory and intuition. Some people believe astrology weighs heavily on their life, including the choices they make, the partners they keep, and even their own unique skill sets. Others make no claims to astrology at all, and consider the forces or the star patterns to be irrelevant in the grand scheme of life.
No matter what you believe in regards to astrology, one thing is certain- every person born is represented under one of the twelve sun signs. From there, we often live life and check out horoscopes to see if there’s anything exciting in store.
Popular Astrology Tattoo Ideas
There are several different zodiac or astrology tattoo ideas. First, there is the glyph that symbolizes the zodiac sign. These small scripted designs are universal and can be researched on the Internet or in astrology books.
Another idea for astrology tattoos includes star patterns or constellations. These sorts of designs have almost a connect-the-dots style to them and work well on the back or inner arm.
Last you may consider the representation of animals or elements with each star sign. Every astrological sign is either an Air, Water, Earth or Fire sign. You can use these elements to create a fantastical piece of body art that describes the zodiac symbols without resorting to the glyphs which are very common in a traditional astrology tattoo.
Where to Place Astrology Tattoos
Because astrology tattoos are often small in scale, they make the perfect design ideas for areas such as the inner wrist, ankle, forearm, behind the ear, and even the foot.
Of course, your astrology tattoo can be much larger and even create an entire colorful scene on your back. If you seek out a reputable and experienced Realism tattoo artist, you may decide to ink the entire astrology wheel, or perhaps just a few meaningful signs from within your own family or close circle of friends.
The best part about astrology tattoos is that you’re least likely to regret them. Rather than a name tattoo to symbolize lovers, or a quote or a verse tattoo you may grow tired of, an astrology tattoo will have lifelong sentiment without being obvious what or who it even symbolizes. Should a bad breakup with your lover occur, there’s a one out of twelve chance you’ll meet another with her sign? If you have children, tattooing their astrology signs on your body means you’ll carry a little part of their existence on your body forever, no matter where they are in this universe.
