Ideas for a Tattoo With the Capricorn Zodiac Symbol

A tattoo is forever and should be representative of the person who wears it. Zodiac signs are popular because they represent not only your birth, but a whole set of personality traits. The Capricorn zodiac symbol looks like a number 7 and 6 fused together or a seven with the end curled in the opposite direction. Capricorns are represented by the goat, which is also a common theme in Capricorn tattoos.

Goat Tattoo

The goat is the animal symbol of the Capricorn that represents perseverance and determination synonymous with the sign. The goat can be incorporated into a Capricorn tattoo in many ways. The goat can be drawn as the centrepiece for the tattoo with the zodiac symbol next to it or it can protrude from the zodiac symbol. The symbol can also be used to represent the horns of the goat. The goat is a good choice to accompany the symbol for a masculine tattoo.

Flower or Heart Tattoo

In a feminine tattoo, the Capricorn symbol can be represented in the centre of a flower or a heart. The symbol can be in the pistil, or the middle, of the flower. Placing the sign in the pistil can have the double significance of life, birth and femininity since the pistil is the female reproductive part of a flower. The Capricorn sign can also be in the centre of a heart, signifying love and life.

Tribal and Celtic Tattoos

The Capricorn symbol has a tribal look to it that can be enhanced by using it as centrepiece of a tribal or Celtic design. Both tribal and Celtic tattoos are characterised by thick black lines drawn in graphic designs. The Capricorn symbol can blend well with the graphic nature of the tattoo. This tattoo works well for a masculine look.


The Capricorn symbol can be in the centre of a butterfly design to represent the body of the insect. The colourful wings of the butterfly extend on both sides of the symbol. This can be done with other insect with wings, such as a dragonfly. The tattoo is very feminine and can work well if you desire multiple colours.
