Richard Hale is a tattoo enthusiast who studies and researches tattoo symbolism, meanings, and history.


One tattoo symbol that may spark your interest is the rocket tattoo. The rocket tattoo can be sported by both men and women. One of the positive attributes about the rocket tattoo is the fact that it can be designed with a variety of different elements. Rocket tattoos can be designed with anything associated to the heavens, such as clouds, stars, planets, and more. In most cases, rocket tattoos are often very colorful and designed in a cartoon format. Other rocket tattoos may be designed with more detail and less color.

Rocket tattoos can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Because of this, the rocket tattoo can nearly be inked anywhere on the body. Rocket tattoos can be inked on the arms, legs, back, chest, or shoulders. Although the rocket comes in a basic shape, there are a variety of different ways to add a unique twist to your rocket.

Although the rocket tattoo is not considered to be a mainstream tattoo symbol, there is still a small demand for them. For any tattoo artist, a rocket stencil or two is a must. As a tattoo artist, I enjoy creating and working on my own tattoo designs. I like to use a lot of color and add appropriate symbols with the main outlined symbol. The rocket tattoo is perfect for any tattoo artist as it allows a wide range of artistic views. If you like to create your own designs and go with the flow, the rocket tattoo is a perfect choice.


Just like most tattoo symbols, the rocket tattoo holds symbolic value to the men and women that wear this unique tattoo. The rocket tattoo can represent anyone of the meanings listed below. However, in the end, your rocket tattoo symbolizes what you want it too. With that, below are the meanings behind the unique rocket tattoo.

  • Uplifting
  • Magical
  • Spiritual
  • Adventure
  • Agility
  • Forward
  • Progress
  • Limitless


When it comes to rocket tattoo designs, nothing is out of the question. Rocket tattoo designs often include stars, planets, and moons. Rocket tattoo designs may portray tail fire coming from the rocket or designed with no fire at all. In most cases, no rocket tattoo is the same. This gives you the comfort of knowing very few if any will sport the same tattoo as you.

As you read earlier, one of the best features about rocket tattoo designs is the color. Rocket tattoo designs can boast a wide range of beautiful colors. Many rocket tattoo designs include the sky, which can be a variety of blue or black shades. Some rocket tattoo designs may contain no background or sky at all. This is just a few examples of the many differences between one rocket tattoo design and the next.

Another great thing about rocket tattoo designs is the amazing trail art that you find in many rocket tattoo designs. This graphic art can really make a tattoo stand out and look absolutely amazing. Some of the rocket tattoo designs pictured in this article contain this beautiful work. When done correctly, it can make your rocket tattoo stand out and come to life.

Please be sure to take the time to view all the different rocket tattoo designs pictured in this article. This can help you with your own rocket tattoo design. It can help give you a general idea of what rocket tattoo designs look like. You can also gain ideas for your own rocket tattoo design.


There are a few things that you want to consider before you get your rocket tattoo or any tattoo. Make sure that you take the time to research your tattoo. Make sure that you completely understand what your tattoo represents and stands for. You don't want to get inked and find out later that your tattoo symbolizes something completely different from what you first thought.

Don't rush to get inked! There are a variety of men and women that get inked without prior thought. Don't make this mistake. Take the proper time to weigh out all your options and make sure you take the time to think out everything. This includes your tattoo symbol, meanings, body position, and everything in between. Remember, you are planning to wear this for the rest of your life. Yes, there is laser removal and cover-ups. Truth be told, you don't want to go through the process. Make the right decision the first time around.

Rocket tattoos can be a great choice for both men and women. If you're into the stars and planets, this would make for a great appropriate tattoo. If your just looking for a colorful tattoo, the rocket tattoo is a great start. If your into science fiction or astrology, the rocket tattoo is a great place to start for a continued sleeve.
