Libra is the zodiac sign of the people born between August 23 - September 23.

Everyone can recognize a Libra Sun, Moon, or Rising sign by the beautiful elegance they display when walking into a room.

Venus rules Libra, so it's no wonder that you are a moving piece of art — and these Libra tattoo ideas are just a lovely as you are.

The sign of a Libra is the scale. It is a depiction of The Measure of Our Souls myth. Libra tattoos may consist of the goddess Themis or Justicus holding scales and symbols.

These symbols that represent the Libra are popular with women because they are positive, representing romanticism, diplomacy, peace, and idealism.

Some other popular Libra symbols include its glyph, zodiac constellation, and its ruling planet Venus' astrology symbol.

The colors used in each individual's tattoo are most likely a representation of that person's personality and that tells this person's story, or you can lean towards one of Libra's power colors, pink or blue.

Here are some of the best Libra tattoo ideas to inspire your own original artwork.
