Your guide to the perfect tattoo for your sign.

I don't know about you, but I am so indecisive when it comes to picking out the perfect tattoo. Half of the time I don't know whether I should go for something cute or totally original, and the other half of the time I can't figure out on what part of my body I should put the damn thing.


Tattoos can elicit these types of feelings because we have all seen what a bad tattoo can look like. There are so many factors you need to include, such as the right artist, the size and placement, and the actual tattoo — it can get overwhelming.

Couple that with the fact that tattoos are permanent and not at all like those cool dinosaur temporary tattoos you used to get from birthday goodie bags (weren't those awesome?!) and that anxiety could stop you from getting a tattoo for at least another year (or more).

So how do you get over that indecision and fear? Get a tattoo of something that is 100% YOU.

You don't have to wow everyone with something that is over the top and unique. So many stunning tattoos are petite and personalized to the person wearing it. And what is more personalized than a tattoo to fit your Zodiac sign perfectly, right?

Of course, you can always get your actual Zodiac sign tattooed on your body, but something that is even more creative and unique is getting a tattoo that plays into your sign's traits and personality.

You can pick and choose the best parts about you and stick them right onto your skin with a Zodiac-inspired tattoo. Not only will you come out of it with an amazing tattoo, but you'll also have a story behind how you picked it. People will love your creativity and you'll love having a sweet new piece of art on your body.

Aries (March 21 - April 19)

Aries, like a cat, is both courageous and determined. They both love being comfortable and having their independence, which makes this tattoo a no-brainer for an Aries.

Taurus (April 20 - May 20)

Like trees, Taurus is very reliable and stable. They are both patient, preferring to go at their own pace instead of rushing through life. Taurus is also known for being big nature lovers, which makes flowers, trees, and animals perfect subjects.

Gemini (May 21 - June 20)

Blackwork tattoos are serious, yet expressive — just like a Gemini. Simple bands around an arm or leg evokes something thoughtful, yet peaks curiosity in a Gemini.

Cancer (June 21 - July 22)

Cancer is one of the most sentimental and artsy signs, which makes a mountain or other nature tattoo perfect for them. Try to incorporate a body of water into the piece, as well.

Leo (July 23 - August 22)

Like the lotus flower, Leo is passionate and cheerful. Leo loves bright colors, so consider making this piece pop with some purples and blues. The placement on the back of the neck is perfect for a Leo who wants to feel confident with their new tattoo.

Virgo (August 23 - September 22)

Date tattoos are a good choice for a Virgo because it gives them a chance to show how much someone means to them while still being methodical. Virgo always notices the small details, so having intimate tattoos like birth dates are perfect.

Libra (September 23 - October 22)

The bicep is the perfect tattoo placement on a Libra; they're very social so they'll love being able to show it off whenever they want. Libras also believe in harmony and sharing with others, which means matching tattoos are at the top of their list. Words like "I love you" show how gentle a Libra can be.

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21)

Just like a fox, Scorpio is resourceful and a leader. The geometric pattern of the fox and the placement on the wrist is perfect for a Scorpio: someone who is both brave and assertive.

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21)

Script tattoos are perfect for the philosophical and idealistic Sagittarius; it's a great way for them to put their favorite words right on their body. The placement is also great for Sags who want to show off their new piece.

Capricorn (December 22 - January 19)

Capricorn is practical and responsible, so small tattoos are a great choice for them; they prefer quality or quantity so one stunning tattoo is better than several good ones. Capricorns are also very traditional individuals, so old school tattoos like anchors are right up their alley.

Aquarius (January 20 - February 18)

Aquarius is original and creative, so their tattoo should be too. Mixing natural elements like flowers and bones taps into the Aquarius' intellectual and avant-garde side.

Pisces (February 19 - March 20)

Like the hawk, Pisces is intuitive and spiritual. Birds can be very romantic animals, which matches a Pisces' personality. The intricate wings makes this tattoo very artistic.
