Find the Perfect Idea for Your Aquarius Tattoos with These Inspired Designs!

Subtle

Even if you did not know the context that surrounds this tattoo of an overturned vase, you would likely conclude that this is a dreamy and gorgeous tattoo. According to the ancient Greek myth, Ganymede was a beautiful young man who was spotted by Zeus who immediately fell in love with him. After turning into a giant bird, Zeus captured Ganymede and flew him to the heavens where he would become the cupbearer to the gods.

Because of the myth, you will see a number of vessels with water flowing from them among Aquarius tattoos.

Seeing Stars

Constellation tattoos are popular for every sign. It’s easy to understand why as they are beautiful and often contain celestial bodies and other imagery that takes well to tattooing.

Floral Constellation

We find another constellation tattoo here with sumptuous florals worked into the shape. Botanicals and nature-inspired imagery will always be winning ideas for your tattoos.

Symbols

The symbol for Aquarius is two wavy lines that run parallel to one another. The translation for it is “water-carrier.” In just black ink, we find the symbol paired with botanical elements for a balanced and visually interesting design.

Vase Meets Stars

We find the vase imagery and a constellation colliding in this tidy tattoo with very sharp lines. It’s full of movement and energy, making it one of the most exciting Aquarius tattoos on this list.

Rainbow Realness

This constellation tattoo contains micro tattoos of various objects in the place of stars. A carrot, a rainbow, a heart, paws, and more help bring this playful design to life.

Tarot Card

Tarot card tattoos are a huge trend and have been for a few years now. This lush design is surrounded by a sea of flowers. What a handsome design!

Cute Character

We find a cute animal character here, on top of the vase with a fishing pole that’s caught Aquarius’ sign ruler, Saturn. It’s such a fun design that’s packed with whimsy.

Simplicity Is Bliss

Fine lines and delicate ornamentation make this vase one of our favorite Aquarius tattoos. You do not need to reinvent the wheel, but you do need to find a tattoo artist who will help you realize the design and apply it accordingly.

As If By Paint

Here’s another one of the Aquarius tattoos that features the symbol of the sign. However, this time, we find it tattooed to look as if it’s been applied by a paintbrush rather than a tattoo gun.

Time to Get Weird

Thinking out of the box will result in a tattoo that no one else can claim. For instance, this vase tattoo that’s pouring over a skull is rather singular.

Wonderful Whale

On its own, this whale would make for a fine tattoo but with the addition of the constellation, it’s made even more meaningful. Take a look at all of those tiny dots used to give texture and dimension. What a dream!

Goddess

Some Aquarians have forgone Ganymede and instead replaced him with a sort of Aquarius goddess. Among Aquarius tattoos, these goddess designs are popular today.

Lady Face

Lady face tattoos are popular, traditional designs that will never go out of style. In this neo-traditional take, we find the tattoo done in black and grey which stands out as most traditional designs will incorporate colorful inks. If you like old-school tattooing, look to the past for your Aquarius tattoos.

Magic in the Waves

This Aquarius symbol stands out from the rest because it’s been enlarged to allow for ornamental features to be included inside. It’s unlike any other Aquarius tattoos on this list.

Going Big

You can work with a tattoo artist to create a very large piece for you. This Aquarian vase design takes up the entire upper thigh. If you’re interested in a full or half-sleeve tattoo, it’s totally doable!

Possibilities

In this colorful goddess-style design, we find simple shapes and 2D flatness that still has plenty of visual interest and style. Tattoos done with a frame around them offer a sense of purposefulness.

All About the Movement

We find our friendly vase again but this time the water seems to be billowing from it like smoke. There’s a koi fish for good measure too. There’s so much movement and drama in this piece.

Skeletal

Not our first but our second skeletal Aquarius tattoo finds a dancing skeleton pouring a vase with red liquid out into a swirling storm. We really appreciate the controlled chaos depicted in this design.

From Ancient Greece

This tattoo seems to depict the Ganymede myth with the character holding and pouring from a vase. This man’s beauty was so prized by the gods that even Ovid and Orpheus sang his tale. The imagery is very reminiscent of ancient Greek statuary.

Symbols

We find a neat watercolor effect under the Aquarius symbol here that’s rather splashy. We also spot the symbol for the Zodiac element Air that governs the sign of Aquarius. This sort of arrow shape is wildly popular these days. If you go with it, you will be in very good company.

Panther Vase

Here’s another one of the Aquarius tattoos that depicts the signature vase but what’s different here is the inclusion of panther. It’s a very unique design that raises more questions than answers, which is what you want from a piece of art.

Moon Goddess

Here’s a sort of moon goddess version of the cupbearer. Notice the inclusion of white ink for detailing and highlight. It’s as haunting as it is beautiful.

Nautical Motif

For some Aquarians, nautical-themed tattoos are too attractive to pass up. We find a vaguely-Greecian-inspired design here with waves and tentacles. It’s very imaginative work. Find yourself an artist with a vision and you could walk away with something equally as unique.

There you go! We hope you feel inspired by these Aquarius tattoos and that you’ll consider getting one of your own that celebrates your independent nature. There’s no wrong or right way to go about your tattoo, but we urge you to think outside of the box and work with a tattoo artist with a point of view so that you’ll walk away with a design that’s all your own.
