Sagittarius Tattoo Designs

Whether you are looking for your first tattoo, or simply a new design to add to your collection, it always pays to think carefully about choosing something that will stay with you for life. Some things come and go, but your birth date will always remain the same. This accounts for the reason why signs of the zodiac make such popular tattoos, also reflecting the true character of their wearer.

Sagittarius is the ninth zodiac sign, given to those who are born between November 23 and December 22. Those born at this time of year are known for strong characters, made up of a number of qualities including reliance, courtesy and friendliness. However, they also find it difficult to make close friends and will only do so over time. The Sagittarius by nature is very adventurous, requiring physical as well as intellection and emotional strength.

The Symbol of Sagittarius: The centaur is the traditional sign of Sagittarius, half man and half horse. This image is often depicted in Sagittarius designs, whether that is a small outline or a large, strong piece full of colour and detail. This is the perfect bold symbol for those who want a larger piece.

Many also choose to go with the arrow design, part of the ancient Sagittarius symbol. This can be useful for those who want a more discreet and smaller tattoo. Traditional colours used for Sagittarius tattoos include shades of violet and purple, though black is also a popular choice in many designs.
