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 go-getter attitude. With all of those enviable qualities and more, it’s only right that those with birthdays that fall between March 21 and April 19 consider paying homage to their zodiac sign with an Aries tattoo. From interpretations of the ram to micro-symbols and constellations, the options are a-plenty.
"Aries is the untamed wildfire of the zodiac whose energy resembles the flame of a newly lit match,” Aries-born astrologer Alexandria Lettman previously told Bustle. “Aries is bold, opinionated, magnetizing, aggressively passionate, and does everything with a sense of urgency — but nothing can compare to the tremendous amount of self-love and optimism that Aries energy carries.” They’re the natural trendsetters of the zodiac, so it’s no surprise many celebs and artists share the sign, including Lady Gaga, Mandy Moore, Saoirse Ronan, Chance the Rapper, and Kourtney Kardashian.
