Getting your first tattoo is a decision that should not be taken lightly.

You want it to be special and as personal as you are.

A tattoo is as intimate and forever as your birth date and zodiac sign.


It's a huge life decision that expresses something about you to the world. 

A tattoo is a permanent form of expression that you will have to live with for years to come, so make sure you’ve got it all planned out before you walk into that tattoo shop for your first ink.

You might have the perfect design or quote in mind or something that fits with your horoscope and the person you have become today. 

Where you decide to get your first tattoo will be more meaningful than words or image you decide to get; the body part you choose to ink is symbolic, too. 

Your entire body is a blank canvas allowing you plenty of options. Since the location of a tattoo says a lot about you, what better way to narrow down your choices than to look to astrology?


Here is a list of places, on your body, you should get your first tattoo by your horoscope's zodiac sign, according to astrology.

ARIES (March 21 - April 19)

1. Back of the neck tattoo.

Aries, you've got a bold personality. Getting a back of the neck tattoo is a statement piece and you are all about making a statement. A tattoo on the back of the neck isn't for you it’s for everybody else; to give others a sense of what you’re all about.


Your active lifestyle and a fierce sense of competition mean you leave a lot of people in the dust, so might as well give them something to look at as you lap them.

TAURUS (April 20 - May 20) 

2. A shoulder tattoo.

Taurus,  you are dependable. A shoulder tattoo is a representation of strength and stability which is perfect for your stubborn and tough personality. It’s also a great tattoo location that garners interest and casual touches--something your sensual nature enjoys a lot.


You can be a little possessive and overprotective but you are also a symbol of security to the ones you care about, you’re a shoulder to cry on, so why not embellish it?

GEMINI (May 21 - June 20)

3. Hand tattoo. 

Gemini, you understand things that others don't. Your expressive personality means you communicate a lot with your hands.  As you are a gentle and affectionate person, you use light touches to communicate with others and express how you are feeling.


You can be nervous and restless at times, so you’ll admire your hand tattoo often while you tap your anxieties out on the table.

CANCER (June 21 - July 22)   

4. Hip tattoo. 

Cancer, you know how to keep it on the down low. A hip tattoo is great for you since it will act as a reminder for you to be a little less attached to the hip with the people around you. Your clingy tendencies mostly result from your sympathetic and loving personality traits so let your hip tattoo also be a proud symbol of that.


You love being near water and a hip tattoo looks great in a swimsuit. 

LEO (July 23 - August 22)

5. Chest tattoo. 

Leo, you're as bold as they come. A chest tattoo is dramatic and your dominant, pompous attitude loves being theatrical. You have a ton of self-confidence and you love to be admired, so a chest tattoo is a perfect place to flaunt what you’ve got.  


Your vivacious love for life means you stick your chest out often and need a vivid adornment to match your enthusiasm.

VIRGO (August 23 - September 22)

6. Finger tattoo.

Virgo, even when you're asleep, you're working. Your methodical approach to life and attention to detail means you take pride in the little things and would want a tattoo that reflects this. A small finger tattoo might easily go unnoticed by others but that’s ok by you since your shy demeanor and modest traits wouldn't want anything too showy.


As long as the tattoo means something to you, you really don’t mind it not being center stage.

LIBRA (September 23 - October 22)

7. Ankle/foot tattoo.

Libra, you know how to make things happen. Your harmonious nature and love for the great outdoors make an ankle/foot tattoo the perfect location for you. Any opportunity you get to kick off your shoes and feel the grass beneath your feet, you will take, so why not adorn your feet and ankles with some artfully crafted ink?


It’s also a great location to fit your indecisive, back and forth personality. You can easily keep an ankle/foot tattoo covered until you decide you like it again and want others to see it.

SCORPIO (October 23 - November 21)

8.Behind the ear tattoo.


Scorpio, you're a dark zodiac sign for a reason. You are a very secretive person who will carry the secrets of your friends to the grave with you. Because of your loyal nature, people trust you and are often whispering classified information into your ear.

A tattoo behind the ear would be like a secret message all it’s own, letting people know they can confide in you.


SAGITTARIUS (November 22 - December 21)

9. Butt tattoo


Aquarius, no one does it like you do. Your sense of humor and extrovert personality makes you a great candidate for a butt tattoo. You have a child's curiosity and a childlike sense of humor; what makes children giggle more than butt jokes?

It’s the perfect tattoo location to make people laugh, which is what your jovial nature loves to do. You are a free spirit and hate doing what’s conventional, so do you and get a butt tattoo.

CAPRICORN (December 22 - January 19)

10. Arm tattoo.

Capricorn, you're as tough as nails. An arm tattoo is practical and traditional, which is what you’re are all about.

With long sleeves, It’s an easy one to cover up when you want to look more “businesslike” and a good spot to show off when you want your craftsmanship traits to shine through.

Your family-oriented personality makes an arm tattoo great for those warm bear hugs you are known for giving.


AQUARIUS (January 20 - February 18)

11. Wrist tattoo.
Aquarius, you are unique and your zodiac sign should match that part of your personality. You’re a deep thinker with aloof personality traits who can daydream in the middle of a sentence. A wrist tattoo is an easily viewable spot, which will either help you keep your mind on track or be a useful distraction for you to ponder its meaning and greater significance.

Since you tend to run away from outward expressions of emotion, a wrist tattoo can illustrate different feelings without you ever having to say a word.

PISCES (February 19 - March 20)

12. Arm/leg sleeve tattoo.


Pisces, you are unafraid to try something new. You’re an artistic spirit with an imaginative personality. Visual forms of expression are your jam so you’re going to need a large canvas to properly express yourself, as you see the body as a work of art.

An arm/leg is long enough for you to cover the entire area with your artistic visions. You have a desire to escape reality so why not create a world of your own on your body with an arm/leg sleeve?
