22 of the Most Brilliant and Inventive Scorpion Tattoo Designs

Astrological signs are a fantastic choice for a tattoo design, as they represent something deeply personal to you, and also give an indication of your personality and temperament, especially if you’re typical of your star sign. The only problem is that with millions of other people sharing your star sign, how can you make it personal to you? Those people born between October 24th and November 22nd under the Scorpio sign of the zodiac tend to be self-confident and imaginative, so they shouldn’t have any trouble choosing a creative and bold design! But just in case you’re having trouble deciding on the final design for your Scorpio tattoo, here are some inspirational ideas to check out.

Zodiac Symbol Scorpion Tattoo Designs

The zodiac symbol for Scorpio looks like a stylized letter ‘M’ with a scorpion’s tail, and is an obvious choice for a Scorpio tattoo design. The style of your Scorpio symbol is down to you, and you don’t have to go for the traditional black representation. You can have your symbol any color you want, and have the lettering in any style, for example curved, sharp or graffiti style. Other images such as stars or flowers can surround the symbol, and if your name begins with ‘M’ then why not have a tattoo of your name with the Scorpio symbol as the first letter?

Lettering Scorpion Tattoo Designs

If you want your tattoo to be as understandable as possible and think that some people might not recognize the Zodiac symbol, then you could go for the word Scorpio, either on its own or along with the symbol. Whether you go for a small tattoo somewhere discreet like your wrist or collarbone, or a large and bold tattoo along your forearm, this type of tattoo looks just as powerful on its own or as part of a larger design.

Cartoon Scorpion Tattoo Designs

As the image traditionally associated with the astrological sign Scorpio is, unsurprisingly, a scorpion, a scorpion would be a fantastic choice for your Scorpio tattoo design. As scorpions are predatory animals with lethal venom, an image of a scorpion can come over as quite dark and sometimes scary. If this isn’t the image you want for your Scorpio tattoo design then why not consider having a cartoon scorpion instead? This way your scorpion can be as brightly colored as you want, and you could even make them look cute instead of creepy.

If you’re looking for a lifelike scorpion for your Scorpio tattoo design, your tattoo artist can have a lot of fun helping you to create one. Scorpions have very detailed bodies and claws, so it’s best not to make the design too small or you won’t be able to see this great detail. If your heart is set on a tiny design then maybe just the outline of a scorpion will suit you, but if you’re happy to go bigger then you’ll be able to get all of the intricate detail in perfectly. You could even have a 3D tattoo of a scorpion, with your tattoo artist using shading and shadow to bring the animal to life on your body.

Tribal Scorpion Tattoo Designs

Tribal tattoo styles work wonderfully for scorpion tattoo designs, as the sharp and bold black lines and geometric patterns that are customary in tribal tattooing are very similar to the shapes and angles of a scorpion’s body. There are countless ways to design a tribal scorpion, and as long as you make sure to include a long, tapering body, sharp pincers and a tail with a sting, your tribal Scorpio tattoo will look truly awesome. The zodiac symbol for Scorpio would also work amazingly done in tribal style, either as the symbol itself tattooed with tribal lines, or with tribal designs surrounding the symbol.
