A collection of original Gorgeous Aquarius Tattoos that you won’t be able to forget

When it comes to getting a perfect ink to showcase your Aquarian pride, uniqueness is key.

While most of the zodiac tattoos are often associated with the zodiac symbol or its ruling planet, Aquarians may need a little more than that.

So here is a list of Aquarius tattoos in different categories. From sleek constellation tattoos to totally badass tribal patterns, you will find your Aquarius ink-spirations in this post.

 

Aquarius symbols and tattoo elements explained

A zodiac symbol is not your sole option of Aquarius tattoos. Here are the Aquarius symbols, elements, and their meanings.

Aquarius symbols and tattoo elements explained

The glyph of Aquarius is a lot like waves of water. But in fact, it symbolizes the water pouring from the vessel of the Water Bearer – Aquarius symbol.

  • Aquarius constellation
  • Aquarius symbol: the Water Bearer

The Water Bearer is a man, or in some cases, a woman carrying a vessel with water pouring out.

In Ancient Egypt astronomy, the streaming coming out from the vessel flooded the Nile, and thus, the sign is considered to be destructive. But in modern astronomy, it represents Aquarian’s pursuit of freedom and higher truth.

Though Aquarius has strong associations with water, it’s an Air sign. Air signs are imaginative, compassionate, and full of emotions. And sometimes Aquarius gets a bad rap of being “in their head.”

  • Birth flower: Orchid

Orchids were rare in the Victorian age, and it became a sign of wealth and privilege.

Confucius once wrote that the orchids “let out their fragrance even if there is no one around to appreciate it.” They are just like the Aquarius sign: one-of-a-kind, noble, and kind-hearted.

  • Ruling planet: Uranus and Saturn

Uranus is a symbol of freedom and revolution. It gives Aquarius the power to break chains in life and do the impossibles.

Saturn, on the other hand, represents structures and discipline. This may not fit into the free-spiritedness of Aquarius. But Aquarians are logical thinkers, thanks to the energy of Saturn. That’s why compared to other Air signs, Aquarius are less likely to act impulsively.
