Aries Horoscope Tattoos

Aries tattoos are symbolic for people who identify strongly to this sign. They can be designed in a variety of stylized ways for both men and women. In this article, we talk about the personality and traits of the Ram, as well as discuss Aries tattoo designs with visual ideas of what you could incorporate into your ink.

If your horoscope or zodiac is not Aries but you act (or so you’ve been told) like one, it could be that you are heavily influenced by Aries that could come from the other planetary placements in your birth chart. What’s that? Well, our date of birth can tell us what Sun sign (zodiac) we are, but our time of birth shows us the other signs that’s included in our Natal Chart — or Birth Chart.

Aries Zodiac Personality

If you’re born on March 21 - April 19, then you’re an Aries (in Western Astrology)! Regardless of the gender, Arians are loyal but discerning friends. They may be brash at times and seemingly explosive but behind that, Aries people are innately rather sensitive and soft-hearted. They are direct and do not play mind games.

The first and also the baby of the zodiac, they have an enduring child-like personality with wondrous ideas to share. However, like a child, they often lose interest in things quickly and end up with a lot of unfinished projects while pursuing something new.

They are a cardinal fire sign; cardinals embody the quality of initiation, starting and pushing forward, sometimes as leaders but not necessarily a must. Fire signs are highly visionary and believe in their own convictions with fiery passion.

Aries Tattoo Symbols and Ideas

The Aries Ram Tattoo

The Ram is the symbol of Aries. You may wish to choose this symbol for your Aries tattoo because they are strong, tireless and determined creatures. Some people may view this as a very masculine imagery, but depending on the style, rams can be designed to look cute and even docile.

Seen as a sure-footed, bold animal that leaps into situations where others fear, the ram creates his own path with swift movements. Not one to spend too much time on calculative decisions, the Aries uses intuition and faith to propel themselves forward.

Aries Warrior Tattoos

In Roman mythology Mars is the God of War and agricultural guardian, his Greek counterpart is Ares. The Aries archetype is that of heroic action, wars, glory and honor - sometimes also negatively associated with destruction and blind rage.

The Aries must learn to control their destructive energy and when it happens, sometimes destruction can be a second chance and a new lease of life in order to be unstuck and move on to build something even better — like a phoenix rising from its own ashes. This is the never-give-up, warrior attitude.

Aries Mars Tattoos

Arians are ruled by the planet Mars. Known as the Red Planet, it is a planet of direction, intense passion and unbridled fiery energy. Besides a beautiful sight, Aries tattoos revolving around Mars can mean adventure, bravery and confidence.

Aries Glyph Tattoos

The astrological glyph for Aries ♈️ is another popular tattoo. Alone, it can be a discrete or minimalist Aries tattoo because astrological glyphs are simple enough to be minimized without losing recognition or appearing compressed.

The Aries glyph looks like a stripped down, bare-bones depiction of a ram head with horns, in certain designs, it is sometimes merged with the ram head into something creative.

Devil Ram Tattoos

Rams are sometimes associated with the Baphomet or Sabbatic Goat from the occult. While the actual representation should be the goat (horns turned up), rams (curled horns) are often also seen in connection.

  • Ram with three eyes: Rams portrayed having a Third Eye — also known as the All Seeing Eye as well as the Mind’s Eye — can mean having perception beyond ordinary sight, a higher consciousness and deep knowledge. It is associated with esoteric mysticism.
  • Inverted/Upside down cross: The meaning of having an inverted cross tattooed can be a positive or negative thing, depending on the intention of the wearer.

    - It can mean humility, as St. Peter was facing martyrdom, he felt unworthy to be crucified in the same way as Christ, and so he was crucified upside down.

    - It could also mean a denouncing of God, in a way, to turn down the cross is to turn down the idea of God. In atheism, humanism, and the occult this can symbolize the belief that there is no God and to always believe in yourself.
