Aries Tattoo Ideas

Updated on June 29, 2011

Historically speaking, I tend to get romantically involved mostly with fire signs. There's been a Leo thrown in here and there over the years, but mostly I've found myself attracted to Aries. These have been great matches for me on a physical level; as a fire sign, people born under the sign of Aries (March 21-April 20) are passionate, impulsive, and full of energy. Aries were always able to keep up with me in more ways than one. They are always ready for action. As the infant sign of the zodiac, symbolizing the spring equinox and all new beginnings, Aries are straightforward and uncomplicated, pure energy and courage. Because Aries, the ram, leads with it's head, they tend to be forceful, instinctive, and prone to going after what they want as soon as they realize they want it.

I remember when I started dating my ex-girlfriend she told me in no uncertain terms, "I'm simple." Simple? I thought. What does that mean? Does that mean she's dumb? I worried about that statement sometimes during our getting-to-know-you phase, hesitant to fall in love with someone who may have been intellectually moronic. Luckily, I had misinterpreted her claim, and she turned out to be a very smart, responsible girl and talented writer. But true to her Aries nature, she was indeed simple in the sense that it didn't take much to make her happy--good beer, sunny weather, time with friends. Everything was black or white with her, and sometimes I envied her ability to simplify to the point where a decision could be easily made and never regretted later.

Aries are primal and spontaneous, and although their nature may cause them to hurt other's feelings with their straightforward, no-nonsense manner, it is never intentional. They are just very focused and goal-oriented, and don't realize that they're trampling over the people they care about in their quest to get wherever it is they're going. As a notorious fire sign, Aries can be hot-headed and quick to temper, though they'll usually flare up and then settle down pretty quickly (if you're lucky).

All fire signs are warm. According to, "A fire gives light and heat, but it doesn't get depleted as others feed on its warmth. One candle can bring light to a room and it won't burn any faster if ten people read from its light than if there was only one. Fire doesn't plan it's next move; it isn't logical. It simply is in the moment and will burn what fuel is available without judgment or forethought. The fire of Aries is spontaneous and hot. It's like a pile of dry kindling that burns fast but cannot sustain itself for the long haul."

Aries Symbol Tattoos

Aries is named for the constellation of Aries, or "The Ram", based on the mythological golden-haired, winged ram that rescued Phrixos and took him to the land of Colchis. Phrixos sacrificed the ram to the gods and then hung its skin in a temple. Thereafter it was known as the Golden Fleece. Aries ruling planet is Mars, it is one of four cardinal signs, and is often considered a more masculine sign. The Aries zodiac sign is symbolized by two lines curved to form the shape of a pair of ram horns.
