25 Aries Tattoo Ideas That Are on Fire

Aries is the first astrological sign in the zodiac and the first fire sign. They are known for being bold and ambitious and the Aries tattoos are proof of this sign’s go-getting attitude. People born under this sign are known for being no-nonsense folks who prefer direct and straightforward communication. Aries tattoos reflect as much as their tattoo designs are not encumbered frilly details. Instead, we see designs that are immediately apparent in their subject matter.

Just because Aries tattoos are direct does not mean there’s not a diversity of them out there. While most of these tattoos have the symbol for Aries, the ram, in their designs, there are plenty of ways people have gone about representing them in ink. Further, the symbol for the design, which resembles the letter “V” is also a popular, straight choice. If you’re looking for Aries tattoo ideas scroll through the awesome designs we’ve rounded up below!

Let’s Take a Look At Some Awesome Aries Tattoos for Ink Inspiration!

Watercolor Ram

One thing you will soon realize is that most Aries tattoos are done in black ink only. We kick things off with a little bit of color in this watercolor tattoo but don’t expect much more as we proceed.

Big Horned

As we mentioned, Aries are no-nonsense and many of the Aries tattoos don’t feature color or exaggerated ornamentation. This handsome ram gets right to the point.

Constellation Jam

Surprisingly, we did not encounter as many constellation tattoos for Aries as we have with other astrological signs. This tidy one looks great next to the Aries’ symbol.

Stylized Ram

You’re in for a bunch of ram tattoos so be prepared to see many variations on this theme. We loved this Aries tattoo that finds the ram’s coat in a swirling storm.

Almost Abstract

Here’s a ram’s head and while it is instantly recognizable the shapes that have been tattooed into it are rather unique. If you’d prefer something more abstract, keep the shape of the head but change its contents.

Ram in a Diamond

Frame tattoos are great because they help ground a design and give the illusion of depth. A diamond works well but a standard square or rectangle will also look good.

Micro Symbol

Micro tattoos are a huge trend today. This one has been applied by hand with the stick and poke method which results in ultra-fine lines. Simplicity really is bliss.

With Botanicals

Another popular Aries tattoo idea is to get the symbol for the sign and pair it with botanical elements. There are leaves sprouting all around this one which is a subtle nod to nature.

Hyperrealism

Take a look at all of that minute detail. This very real-looking ram’s head is a wonder.

A Skull

Another direction to take your Aries tattoos is to use a ram skull to tell your story. This one is accompanied by flowers which offers a great juxtaposition between life and death.

Flanked with Flowers

Here’s another example of an Aries tattoo with flowers. This ram would look pretty lonely without them. Work with your artist to fill out your design for a balanced and finished look.

Spins On the Symbol

Yet another way to go for your Aries tattoo is to take the classic symbol and put a spin on it. This variant looks fantastic in bold, black ink.

With Mandala Action

Mandala tattoos account for some of the most popular designs today. We did not expect to see one with Aries tattoos but this marriage looks as if it’s been made in heaven.

Ram Goddess

A scheme that’s popular among all the signs is to translate the characteristics of each into a goddess character. We find a ram goddess here, carrying some scales. What a beauty!

How good is this Aries tattoo of a ram’s skull with plenty of dainty ornamentation around it? It’s one of our favorite tattoos on this list and it strays the furthest from some of the more straightforward designs on this list.

Softened by Blossoms

Sweet pea blossoms really help to sweeten this design which would look rather nonchalant without them. Pair your favorite flower with the symbol for your Aries tattoo and you won’t regret it.

Aries Cat

Here’s one of the more whimsical Aries tattoos we encountered. It finds the familiar horns on a fluffy cat. It’s a dreamy interpretation that’s just tons of fun.

Straightforward

Now, you can get right to the point with a tattoo that simply says “Aries.” While we prefer more graphic designs, this is still an effortless option for you.

Half-Sleeve Possibilities

If you’re wanting a substantial tattoo, consider building a half-sleeve around your Ariest tattoo design. This person has gotten things started with some ornamental details above and below the large ram character in the center.

Watercolor Aries Goddess

There aren’t a ton of Aries tattoos that feature color and that’s a shame. Here’s the most vivid example we could find and it’s simply magical. Don’t be afraid of color, Aries!

Hidden Symbol

While most of these designs are in your face, this ornamental one is much more subtle. We find the symbol for Aries tucked away in the shape of this tattoo. It’s a great option if you’re not wanting a “loud” design.

Aflame

Aries is a fire sign and we found several Aries tattoos that incorporated flames. This is one of our favorites because it looks young and fresh. Don’t discount how cool flames can look in tattoo form.

Neo-Traditional Ram

Neo-traditional tattooing takes hallmarks of traditional tattooing: bold, thick lines, and basic shapes, and puts them to use in a unique way. The result is a tattoo that feels both young and old and wholly modern.

Almost Hidden

Here we find the Aries symbol and you might not have spotted it if you weren’t looking out for it. This is the perfect, subtle Aries tattoo for those who want to show their Aries pride but not shout about it.
