52 Gorgeous Taurus Tattoos with Meaning

Taurus have a unique taste for tattoos. From big to small, simple to intricate, these Taurus tattoos are tailor-made for the sign.

Taurus is the most down-to-earth out of all zodiac signs, no doubt. They are patient and value stability. These characteristics give Taureans a bad rap for being dull and stuck in a rut. But if you know a Taurean in your life, you know that’s not the case.

Taureans are not attention-seekers. They will not come into a party with a grand entrance and just glide into the spotlight. Instead, they are consistent and loyal, making them good friends and reliable partners.

It’s true that when it comes to self-expression, Taureans are not as adventurous as Aries or Sagittarius. But they have a unique eye for beauty. After all, the sign is ruled by Venus, the goddess of beauty and romance. So, they are all about cohesive color palettes, clean lines, high-quality materials, and class. When you put all these together, you have a gorgeous look that seems effortless.

The same applies to Taurus tattoos. They might not have the most innovative patterns or vibrant colors. But they are timeless and relatable, something you won’t regret 50 years from now. If you are a Taurean, these unique Taurus tattoos are for you. From small to big, simple to intricate, you will find something that represents your identity.

Taurus symbols and elements explained

Taurus tattoos are more than bulls. Here is a list of Taurus elements to add some twists to your ink.

Taurus Tattoo elements explained
  • Taurus glyph

The glyph, or Taurus symbol, is in the shape of a bull’s head and horn. 

  • The Bull

The Taurus sign is represented by the Bull, a tenacious animal with great strength. 

They work consistently on their goals until they achieve what they want. Most of the time, the bulls are calm and quiet, just like Taurus. But they can be explosive when irritated. Their horns are the warning signs for anyone who messes with them.

  • Taurus constellation
  • Birth flower: Poppy
  • Taurus element: Earth

Earth signs are known to be practical, down-to-earth, and reliable. Just like Virgo and Capricorn, Taurus has similar earthy qualities. 

  • The ruling planet: Venus

Venus rules the zodiac sign Taurus. It also controls love and prosperity in our lives. With the influences of its ruling planet, Taurus values financial stability and intimacy. 

It’s their core value to spend a good life with their soulmate. In the meantime, they keep their eyes on the stars and feet on the ground.
