For an intuitive soul like Pisces, tattoos are a wealth of meaning and depth. If you’re one of these water-sign babies getting ready to celebrate another year, give yourself the gift of a meaningful tattoo inspired by your star sign. Choose from a subtle behind-the-ear tat or a pretty thigh tattoo. Whether you identify with the ocean’s resilience or the Pisces fishes’ dualistic nature, here are 20 tattoos any water-lovin’ Piscean will love.


1. Geometric Fish: Though Pisces are known to avoid structure because of its restriction, you can express your unique perspective through a geometric rendition of your sign. The contrast between geometric lines and the fluidity of fish swimming plays up the water sign’s dualism. Yeah, it got deep real quick. (via @lelefdsk)
