A popular feature of today’s society is tattooing, in which designs are permanently inscribed on the skin. Reasons may be sentimental, religious, or artistic. Some designs may be related to the zodiac, and these are becoming increasingly popular, appealing more to females because they are generally simple and easily identified. Aries tattoos fall into this category.
Aries, the first sign in the zodiac chart, is for persons born between March 21 and April 19, and is represented by the ram symbol. This tattoo generally takes the form of a ram’s horn with large loops, or the entire picture of a ram. Many different interpretations of the ram, ranging from friendly to nonchalant or evil, allows for great creative expression with this particular symbol. Red roses, tulips and the Tiger Lily are all flowers associated with Aries.
Aries women are considered spirited adventurers who are passionate about life; they are go-getters. They are known as the natural leaders of the zodiac, and Aries tattoos for women celebrate the spirit of this fire sign. An Aries woman who is a lover of trees can combine the paired horns symbol with a tree shape to express this passion; the ram’s horns can also be intertwined with a flame to demonstrate that you belong to a spirited fire sign, or coupled with other symbols, depending on the individual.
Aries men are known for their dominant leadership qualities. The bold Aries ram, with its powerful coiled horns, indicates strength and determination. This fire sign is captured in eye-catching Aries tattoos ranging from simple depictions of the ram or the ram’s horns to more elaborate drawings with gigantic horns, usually on the biceps, shoulders or back. The choices for men are more limited but no less powerful in their statement than those for the Aries woman. Creativity is all that’s required to create the Aries tattoo to express one’s own unique personality. For many however, both men and women, simply tattooing the word Aries is enough.
