We wish a star you get an amazing space tattoo you will love to infinity and beyond.
Swirls and snail
I absolutely love the combination here of outer space inspiration and a very alien style mollusc snail. The swirls and lines are so aesthetic that I add this design to my space tattoo ideas.
2. Astronaut and planet balloons
Super creative. And whimsical. I’ve noticed that a lot of astronaut tattoos have a really magical and fantastical kind of vibe to them. Love the colors on this one too.
3. Whales and butterflies, oh my
It’s hard to go wrong with whales… or butterflies. It’s a bit like put a bird on it. However, when you add planets and nice circles to it, you take it to the next level. Well done.
4. This one is from France
I have the impression that if it comes from France, it is raised in a certain way. European, after all. But that’s not why we added it to our space tattoo ideas post. It has made its way based on its visual merits. First, points. Astrological charts are simply fascinating. Then there is the beauty of fine lines. They really attract you.
5. Campy, but nice
This one is contained, giving it a very different feel to a handful of stars and planets and a random animal. Oh wait… there’s octopus here, so I’m guessing it’s a random animal. But still, the circular dome with all the stars is very cool.
Is the octopus also pulled into space, or just there because it’s nice to look at?
6. Weak but provocative
It’s like this one is underrated because he knows his power. The orbs around the circle and then the piercing legs of all that is make for a nice visual juxtaposition, don’t you think? I also love the little addition of the little circles on the orb balls.
This one is unreal. Do they use phosphorescent ink or something to create that effect? The detail is incredible, and the way the astronaut holds the moon opens the mind to perceive scale in a whole new way.
8. Simple and cute
This one is Japanese and is called Space Pool for Dog. I bet the person with this tattoo loves space and also has a dog that looks like this. But I’m only guessing where they got their space tattoo ideas.
9. Stylish Astronaut
Astronauts who end up getting tattoos must have a certain elegance. Otherwise, they won’t float on the arm quite the same.
10. Super sweet and simple
Very feminine. It looks a bit like a non-committal tattoo, but I like the way this one shows. It’s perfect for off-the-shoulder looks and adds a bit of artistry to an otherwise pale and barren shoulder.
11. There is a moon
This space tattoo idea also incorporates lotus flowers and other designs. However, this moon in the center easily makes this a space tattoo. Nice combination of styles here.
12. Falling Astronaut
See what I mean about elegance? This astronaut falls where the other climbed.
This immediately reminds me the scene in Ad Astra where Brad Pitt falls from the sky and his heartbeat barely rises. Have you seen him? It’s OK. I did not like TLJ character at all. However, I guess he had been on a space station for a number of years, which allows him certain psychopathic tendencies.
13. Space Cat
A space cat riding a rocket. I wonder if there is any real inspiration for the cat, or if the person just chose a cartoon cat. Or…here’s a question: I wonder if anyone has lost their precious cat and gotten a tattoo because it reminds them that their four-legged friend is in the skies riding a mini rocket. Maybe?
14. Human After All
The moon is the only part of this space tattoo that is yellow. It’s pretty cool. I wonder if there is any significance to the fact that the rings of the planet protrude beyond the astronaut’s helmet. In doing so, he puts the planet first rather than the human.
15. Astronaut Angel
Looks like this space tattoo idea is in pointillism. It makes it even cooler. I enjoy moving away from hard, solid lines in tattoos. Very beautiful.
16. Glow in the dark?
How the hell did they create this look? Oh wait…that’s not from Earth. This explains that.
