Represent the ram of the zodiac.

As we prepare to welcome spring, we’re also getting ready to usher in Aries season. Those with the fire sign Aries are known for their confidence, ambition, fearlessness, strength, optimism — and the desire to get an Aries tattoo the moment the weather turns warm. From interpretations of the ram to micro-symbols and constellations, the options are a-plenty.

Aries season starts on March 20th and lasts until April 19th, says Maggie Wilson, a numerology expert and author of The Metaphysical Cannabis Oracle Deck. “The energy during this time of year is described as courageous, bold, and full of initiative,” she tells Bustle. Folks born under this sign are the natural trendsetters of the zodiac, so it’s no surprise many celebs and artists share it, including Lady Gaga, Mandy Moore, Saoirse Ronan, Chance the Rapper, and Kourtney Kardashian.

Aries is also the first sign of the zodiac, which not only marks the start of spring but also the start of a new astrological cycle. “This is a time for new beginnings, taking action, and pursuing your passions,” Wilson says. It’s why those with an Aries birthday are viewed as the untamed wildfire of the zodiac, astrologer Alexandria Lettman previously told Bustle. “Aries is bold, opinionated, magnetizing, aggressively passionate, and does everything with a sense of urgency,” she tells Bustle. They also have a ton of self-love.

With so much enviable energy in the air, it makes total sense to celebrate the season with an Aries tattoo. Whether you’re in the market for new ink or want to make your first tat extra special, keep scrolling for 17 chic Aries tattoo ideas that are sure to inspire a fiery convo with your tattoo artist.


Aries Symbol With Flowers

Aries, which is Latin for “ram,” is represented in the zodiac with this V-shaped symbol. Add flowers like those shown in this delicate design for an eye-catching touch.


Micro Zodiac Symbol

If you’re looking for a true micro tattoo that shows off your zodiac sign, consider a super small Aries symbol in a discrete placement, like the inside of your ear or the back of your arm.



According to astrologer Zephyr Chan, Aries season marks the start of spring, so it’ll feel right to finally get that flower tattoo you’ve always wanted. A leafy botanical print, fine line floral, or even a colorful bouquet will fit the mood.


Aries Constellation

Showcase the four stars of the Aries constellation with a simple piece, like this minimal hand tattoo. The half moon adds a little extra whimsy.


Small Line Tattoo

Leave no room for interpretation with a minimalist line tattoo like this one. For something a little more delicate, go for a cursive font.



“The ram is the symbol of Aries and represents courage, strength, and determination,” Wilson tells Bustle. “A ram tattoo is a great way to show off your Aries pride and embrace your bold, confident nature.”


Abstract Ram

Opt for an artful and less obvious take on an Aries tat with an abstract ram design that incorporates other elements.


Butterfly Wing

Here, the Aries zodiac symbol plays double duty by also serving as the body of a beautifully shaded butterfly.


Colorful Constellation

For a playful take on the Aries constellation, this work features a star polygon, a blackened one, the zodiac symbol, and a bright planet in pops of green, purple, and red.


Female Figure

This line tattoo features the body of a woman and the horns of an Aries ram for an effect that’s worthy of a second look.


Old English Font

For another take on the Aries tattoo, change up the font. This Old English text is an interesting spin on a classic.


Text With Daisy

Customize a colorful flower tattoo like this one by adding text via a bold “Aries” stamp halfway up the stem.


Aries Portrait

Use this cute tattoo as inspo for fresh ink that showcases your zodiac sign’s symbol in unique way.


Brave Words

For a small Aries tattoo, Gailing suggests a fiery word like courage or brave to match your energy. Consider getting it inked in a simple font on the back of your arm.


Lotus Flower

Lotus flowers represent spiritual awakening and growth — all themes that are associated with Aries season, Wilson says. “A lotus tattoo can be a reminder to stay true to yourself and continue on your path of personal development.”



Nothing will represent the passion and energy of your sign quite like a fire tattoo, Wilson says. “You could get a flame tattoo, a phoenix tattoo, or any other design that incorporates fire.”


Floral Zodiac

For an intricate yet dainty tattoo, arrange petals in the shape of the Aries zodiac symbol like the design seen here.
