We checked your horoscope and it told us that you needed a new tattoo. We know, super weird! Since it’s written in the stars that you need to get inked in the near future, we decided to roundup a list of some of the best constellation tattoos you can get right now.
And if you’re not quite ready for permanent body art, you can always just get a shooting star or a comet. Those don’t last long, right?
Whether you’re going for big and bold or dainty and delicate, you’ll love these creative constellation options. Just check if your tattoo artist’s star sign is compatible with yours before you commit to spending some time under their needle. No offense, Geminis…
25 Cool Constellation Tattoos
1. A Full “Handstellation” Tattoo
Tell your friend who’s moving that you can’t help them lift any furniture.But, you’d be happy to give them a “hand” in wishing on a star for some movers to show up.
2. Seven Sisters Constellation Tattoo
This gorgeous collection of stars is named after the seven daughters of Atlas, a Titan who held up the sky for his children. Sounds like he could use a massage gift card for Father’s Day.
3. Matching Big Dipper/Little Dipper Tattoos
A Big and Little Dipper couples tattoo is a great idea for you and your BFF. But try not to get into a huge fight when she suggests that you’re the Little Dipper, ok? Maybe, just this once, there can be two Big Dippers.
4. Shoulder Constellation Tattoos
Your new pickup line is, “Do you want to take a trip to the planetarium tonight?”
5. Queen Cassiopeia Tattoo
Cassiopeia is the queen of the sky, and you like to think of yourself as the queen of Earth. Pay homage to a fellow royal with this clean constellation tattoo. Sorry, Lizzy. We’ll get a corgi tattoo to honor you next time.
6. Celestial Watercolor Tattoo
This tattoo looks magical, and you’ll cast a spell on anyone who doesn’t like it. What, we never said it would be a bad spell?
7. Earth and Sky Ink
This tattoo is perfect for anyone who goes into a state of full existential anxiety when they look at the stars. Add a little earth to your tattoo, and come back down to it!
8. Dainty Star Sign Tattoo
Is it a map of astrological signs, a creative connect-the-dots design, or a secret code? You and the people you try to explain it to may never know!
9. Reaching for the Stars Tattoo
Whether you’re reaching for the stars at work, or reaching for the sangria carafe at happy hour, this is the perfect piece for a forearm tattoo.
10. Dainty Constellation Tattoo
Not ready for a huge piece? Try out something like this tattoo. And then make people look at it through a telescope.
11. Mythological Art Tattoo
Your mom may tell you to tone down your over-the-top energy, but we never will. Skip the subtle constellations and get a huge picture of the god or goddess that the stars represent. Unrelated – do you know his ab routine?
12. Colorful Constellation Tattoo
You could take some LSD and look at the sky. Or, you can add some psychedelic elements to your constellation tattoo. Either way is fine with us!
13. A Glittering Orion Tattoo
If you get Orion’s Belt, just make sure you get his shoes to match.
14. Twinkling Stars Tattoo
Twinkle twinkle little star, can you point us to the nearest bar? Tattoos hurt! We need a cocktail.
15. Stars, Moons, and More Small Tattoos
Constellations are cool, but don’t make the rest of the sky feel left out. Add in a moon, a comet, or a satellite that’s been hovering over your backyard for a little too long.
16. Stars Over the World
Not all constellation tattoos have to be rooted in the sky. Bring the elements of the universe together with this worldly design. Thankfully Earth and Water have gotten over their disagreement since the last dinner party.
17. Rocket Ship Tattoo
Can’t decide on a single constellation? Add this fun little rocketman to your ink collection instead. He said he’ll pick one for you when he gets to space.
18. Constellation Cat Tattoo
You know your cat is the center of your world (and the only member of your family whose calls you aren’t dodging). So show your furry friend some love with a celestial tribute.
19. The North Star Finger Tattoo
With the world’s oldest navigational tool at your fingertips, you’ll get the first invite to every camping trip from now on. We hope you like s’mores!
20. Draco Constellation Tattoo
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo was so 2011. But the girl with the dragon constellation tattoo? That’s the sequel we’ve been waiting for!
21. Starry Butterfly Tattoo
Can’t find your words when you run into your gym crush? Let him know how you really feel by pointing at your tattoo. Oh, he got confused and walked away shaking his head? That must mean he likes you!
22. Mountain Constellation Tattoo
Yeah, we’re outdoorsy. Outdoorsy in the sense that we like looking at pretty pictures of mountains we honestly don’t really feel like climbing.
23. Stars and Symbols
If you can’t decide what to add to your tattoo to make it a little more unique, add it all! Your zodiac sign is a great option, as well as some witchy moons. Or, that little “S” line thing we drew all over our notebooks in middle school.
24. Florals in Place of Stars
Are you more of an astrology girl or a plant girl? With this ink, you never have to choose. But you still have to remember to water them.
25. The Whole Galaxy
If you get all of the planets, then it’s implied that every constellation is in there somewhere. Just like your remote is somewhere in your couch cushions.
