What Tattoo You Should Get Based on Your Sign

Find out what ink *really* suits your personality.


Getting a tattoo is up there when it comes to commitments, so you want to feel good about what it represents about you (even if it it's sometimes that you make mistakes). For those who like to be guided by astrology, here's a look at the tattoos that will really fit your personality, as written in the stars.


To match your bold, trailblazing energy, think arrows. They have a strong a direction and a trajectory, just like you. You're a competitive force and you don't have anything shrinking about you, which makes the bee a fitting symbol to ink on your skin.

You love the good life and don't feel bad at all when you indulge in the finer things, like vacations (because you deserve them). The palm tree represents that sense of reward and pleasure. You're amazingly sentimental and romantic, and your neck is an important spot along your body, so you would love a neck tattoo that gives you *feelings* (like a heart or a favorite nickname).

You're ready to fly off at any moment—either in your mind or IRL—and that changeability makes you a winged creature, in a way. Birds, wings, and feathers represent that lightness of spirit that so captures who you are. Because of your own duality, you can also see things from many sides, so you might also like a tattoo that has two different design styles in one, or even a white tattoo.

You're an incurable homebody whose sense of family and tradition will never waver. You love the peace you get from having a stable world. Try an anchor, heartbeat, heart, or name tattoo—obviously only someone who's very near and dear to you. Selena Gomez, a Cancer, has the roman numerals for 1976 tattooed on her neck (her mom was born that year).


No one would dare use the word "wallflower" to describe you, because you're a natural boss who loves the spotlight. Your purposeful and driven nature pairs perfectly with a crown tattoo or a lion—after all, that is your animal. Tattoo queen Cara Delevingne has a lion tattooed on her index finger, which is about as quintessentially Leo as you can get.


Always thinking, you would love a tattoo that's as detail-oriented as you are—a geometric tattoo with lots of intricate lines. Since your mind is always going, going, going, a carefully selected quote with beautiful script would work well for you too.

Would you ever be caught dead doing anything alone? You can't bear to be without your best friend—whether that's just your best friend, your soul mate, your partner, or someone else you're going to be right next to forever.

You're guided by your abundance of passion—if your feelings aren't going to be strong, what's the point? A rose tattoo is emblematic of your many desires. You also get real deep about stuff with no problem, so something that tends toward a darker, more intense vibe works for you too. And, it would make sense for you to get your tattoo around your thigh or hip.


You're overtaken with wanderlust at all times, so a tattoo that speaks to your inner travel bug would be perfect for your sign. Think of all the world maps and geographic coordinates you could be getting stamped on your body.

You are grounded AF, so you're all about being determined, hardworking, and dedicated to achieving your goals. You would like word tats that aren't so much reminders but declarations of your core character. Seeing as you're always staying put and doing your thing, a tall tree, rooted as it is, would be a good tattoo for you.

The humanitarian in you wants to make the world a better place, and with the kind of vision you have, you can see that everyone here on this earth is connected. A fitting tattoo for you would be the mandala, a symbol of the universe, or a design that depicts the great wild out there.

Since you're a water sign, you're a bit hard to pin down. You're gentle and you love to dream—aka you can be a bit of a romantic—so tattoos you'd like are unicorns, butterflies, and whimsical hand-poked designs.
