Kitty is no expert on tattoos, but she does have a few of her own. She enjoys sharing ideas on tattoos inspired by various topics.

Sagittarians are proud, fiery people and tend to be tattoo lovers. If you're looking for some unique Sagittarius-themed tattoo ideas, you've come to the right place. As a Sagittarius myself, I've collected some images of centaurs and archers that can make beautiful tattoos.

In case you don't already know: Sagittarius is an astrological sign that applies to anyone born between November 22 and December 21. The symbol is the archer, but not just any archer, a centaur aiming his arrow up at the sky. A centaur has the upper body of a man and the lower body of a horse. Sagittarius can also be represented with a simple bow and arrow.

Sagittarian traits include passion, the ability to adapt to change, wildness, and a tendancy to be unyielding. Sagittarius is a fire sign.

First, think about what being a Sagittarius means to you. How large you want the tattoo to be? As you can see here, many centaur tattoos are of a larger size and are usually put on the back or bicep for spacing reasons. You can always get a smaller version of the centaur, of course, or simply get the bow-and-arrow archer design.

There are different design types to consider:

  • Celtic knot work style
  • tribal
  • portrait

If you have a favorite centaur from a movie, such as The Chronicles of Narnia or Harry Potter, think about asking someone (unless you can do it yourself!) to draw that character on paper and having it made it into a tattoo.

Add some mythical elements to your tattoo!

  • Have flames of fire coming up from the ground that your centaur is walking on.
  • Have flames of fire emanating from the arrow's point to represent the element of fire connected with the Sagittarius sign.

Use your imagination to develop your own idea!

      You seem to be right about that Sagittarian tattoo correspondence. Neptune there throughout the 70's, then joined by Uranus in the 80's with two passes by Jupiter in its own sign. These are the times when it started becoming common place and virtually these entire generations are enamored by it.

      kitty,

      One of my favorite students' (a fabulous nurse is working on her BSN) hubby owns a tattoo parlor. Her arms (probably more!) are adorned with beautiful pictures of the Beatles, flowers... I would be way more modest and less exposed (she is so much younger).

      I am wildly excited that you will be starting school in January! Persistance pays and you will be AMAZING...!

      All my best, Maria

      We share the same zodiac sign, kitty! I am bookmarking this, as I am hitting a mid-life crisis year. I am now considering one of these "smaller" models!

      Hope you are doing well in your educational pursuits, mar.
