There are a lot of tattoo designs to choose from if you want something that’s really unique, meaningful, and personalized. One of which is the zodiac sign tattoos. And if you’re an Aquarius, you’ve come to the right place as in this article, we’re going to give you some ideas on the best Aquarius tattoo designs and delve deeper into this astrological sign.


The Aquarians

There are a lot of things to be proud of as one of the Aquarians, people who were born between January 20 and February 18. For starters, people born under other signs know the Aquarians as someone who has a strong sense of social justice, as well as making the world a better place. Aquarians are also known as someone who is often concerned about others not because of how others treat them or how they want to be treated by others. They are that pure and sincere.

Aquarians are also known to be analytical and intelligent individuals. They often think of the bigger pictures and always see connections in a way that eludes others.


People born under the Aquarius sign are also action-focused. They have a deep desire to get things done. But they also value quality. They will never accept “good enough” results until they truly believe it’s good enough based on their high standards.

Aside from the good character traits that Aquarians possess, another thing to love about being born under the Aquarius sign is that there are a number of celebrities born under the same astrological as yours like Shakira, The Weeknd, Harry Styles, and Ed Sheeran. Famous actors and actresses like Chloe Grace Moretz and Taylor Lautner are Aquarians too. What a time to be an Aquarian, right?


But aside from your famous co-Aquarians and the positive traits that people born under the Aquarius sign possesses, another one of the nice things to love about being an Aquarian is that you have a lot of good Aquarius tattoo designs to choose from too which we’re sure you would love to have on your skin. But before you give it a go, let’s take a closer look at it first, shall we?

Aquarius Signs Meanings, Origin, and as Tattoo

There are actually a number of designs that you can use to symbolize your astrological sign: the constellation, water bearer or carrier, jug, and the astrological glyph. They may have the same representation but they have different aesthetics, which is good to know if you’re planning to have your Aquarius sign etched on your skin.


Aquarius Constellation

Aquarius is a constellation of the Zodiac that is also one of the oldest constellations documented. Recorded by the Greek astronomer Ptolemy, this constellation looks like a person bearing or pouring a jug of water. It is also located in the sea section of the sky and near water-related constellations like Cetus (the whale), Pisces (the fish), and Eridanus (the river). Hence, it is probably the reason why it’s also called the “water bearer.”

And when used as a tattoo, this constellation makes a great design for those who seek minimalist tattoos. With this, you can still be stylish even if this symbol looks very simple.

Water Bearer/Carrier

And again, because it looks like a man pouring a jug of water, it is probably the reason why people call this sign the water bearer. In the mythology, on the other hand, the Greeks link this constellation with Ganymede, the cupbearer to the gods. Hence, another symbol that represents the said astrological sign is a man or a god pouring a jug or jar of water. Sometimes, people also portray this sign using a goddess’ image pouring a jar of water, especially in the world of body art.

Jug or Jar

Sometimes, people omit the image of the god or goddess. Hence, many of us just see a jug or jar of water being poured or overflowing with water. In ancient Egypt, the water bearer’s jar was said to cause the Nile to overflow when the jar was dipped into the water.

Astrological Glyph

Each zodiac sign has a special glyph associated with the mythology behind it. In the case of Aquarius, it is symbolized by the Water Bearer that also represents the flow of energy or wavelength. Hence, the symbol of waves or wavelengths. Apart from that, this also represents humanitarianism, one of the main traits of Aquarians.

Since Aquarius has various symbols to represent it, it’s easy to use it as a tattoo and even combine it with other symbols. Here are some ideas for that that we’re sure will give your zodiac sign tattoo a good boost in aesthetics and even its meaning.

Watercolor Details

Adding some watercolor details to Aquarius tattoo designs can surely make it all the more aesthetically pleasing. Also, this kind of detail can make your tattoo eye-catching because of its uniqueness.

Flowers have different meanings depending on its type and color. A lotus tattoo, for instance, can mean spiritual awakening; a rose can signify new beginnings; a peony can represent the great rewards you got from taking great risks; etc. No matter what kind and color of flower you combine with your Aquarius tattoo, it will surely make it even more significant.
