Scorpio symbols and tattoo elements explained
Scorpions are not your sole option when getting a Scorpio tattoo. Here are the Scorpio elements to give your ink some twists.
- Scorpio glyph
The glyph of Scorpio is similar to the letter M, but with a tail of stinger pointing upward.
- Scorpio sign symbol: The Scorpion
Anyone that knows the basics of astrology will stay out of Scorpio’s way. Represented by the secretive Scorpion, the sign is known to be seductive and vengeful. They feel, love, and hate intensely. If you betray Scorpio’s trust and loyalty, they will sting you with their poisonous tail.
- Scorpio constellation
- Scorpio birth flower: Chrysanthemum
Just like the sign, chrysanthemums have layers covering their stamen. They are beautiful and seductive. Similarly, only the ones that prove they deserve Scorpio’s trust can see the sign’s true self.
- Scorpio sign element: Water
Water signs are known to be intuitive and emotional. As for Scorpio, they tend to bury their feelings underneath their armor.
- Scorpio ruling planet: Pluto and Mars
Pluto is a planet of transformation. It drives Scorpio to break the chains and achieve their goals.
Mars, in Greek mythology, is the governor of war. The signs ruled by Mars are intense and powerful. That makes sense why some Scorpios are short-tempered and impulsive.
- Scorpio glyph
Unique Scorpio tattoos for women
Double scorpion on the back
This back tattoo is proof that Scorpio tattoos aren’t always intimidating. Scorpios are dangerous creatures. But the constellation in the background softens the piece.
And this is not a large back tattoo. The fact that it has so many details in such a small area makes this tattoo exceptional.
An abstract Scorpio outline tattoo
This may look like a simple outline tattoo. But the tail of the hair hints that this tat belongs to a Scorpio woman. If you want to low-key show off your Scorpio pride, this is the design to opt for.
A Scorpio “Star-girl” tattoo on the forearm
This tattoo perfectly combines cuteness with mysteriousness. Everyone will have his own interpretation and it will keep people guessing of the real story behind it.
Scorpio tattoos, especially the ones with a scorpion, are often menacing. But this one is different. The scorpion sealed in a heart-shaped lollipop adds fun to this tattoo. And even girls can wear a design like this.
The lethal species
Good tattoos are visual representations of the wearer’s personality. This arm tattoo is screaming, “don’t cross me. I sting.” Such a badass tattoo will be a proud statement of your zodiac sign.
A peony tattoo with a small Scorpio symbol
One way to combine your sign with the imagery you love is by adding a glyph. And this rose thigh tattoo is a good example.

A bold Scorpio tattoo between the boobs
Tattoos between the boobs are not for everyone. This is a highly discreet and intimate placement. For those who want to add to their charism, consider a bold and sexy design like this.

Flower tattoo with Scorpio constellation
Do you have a favorite flower? If so, adding a zodiac star background to a flower tattoo is a good way to express your identity and aesthetics.
Such a big tattoo on the arm or hand is not common for women. However, the flowers and the shiny shell of the scorpion create an irresistible attraction. And it makes the tattoo one of a kind.
Sun and scorpion
The goddess of revenge
Scorpios may forgive, but they will never forget. They believe in karma and revenge and make sure people get what they deserve. And this revenge goddess is a clear statement not to cross the sign.

Scorpio tattoo for cat lovers
You Scorpions are probably the most “catty” out of the 12 zodiac signs – doing only what you wanna do and not being scared of the unknown and uncertainty. If this sounds like you, consider getting a cat tattoo like this.
A small red scorpion on the chest
A moody Scorpio
It’s rare to find a tattoo that is sad but also cute. This small scorpion is one of the very few.
A floral Scorpio tattoo
A dual-colored tattoo on the ribs
Rib tattoos are so loved for a reason. They are not visible often, so you can go as big as you wish. And a good design aligning with the bones will compliment the body shape.

Scorpion on the chest
A realistic scorpion tattoo with geometric background
An Aquarius-Scorpio watercolor tattoo
This tattoo has so much to love. First, the scorpion’s body is in a perfect S shape, creating movement in static ink. The water adds a shade of popping color to the tattoo. It’s a perfect example that Scorpios can be soft and dangerous at the same time.

A tiny scorpion tattoo on the foot
A cute constellation tattoo
A small outline tattoo with a stars background
A forearm tattoo is less likely to stay hidden than a back tattoo or a thigh tattoo. I love how the artist corporates the natural skin tone with the tattoo instead of filling it with black. This way, the tattoo stays girly and soft instead of menacing.
