Inside: 73 Astronaut Tattoo Ideas That Are Out of This World.

Twinkling stars, a magical Milkyway, and a solar system that will knock your socks off are just a few of the wonders space holds. Can you imaging being able to see all of that up close and personal? What a dream! For Astronauts, that dream is a reality, and boy is it a good one.

Today we are pulling inspiration from these brave and bold individuals with a collection of astronaut-inspired body art.

Someone who loves space might decide to get an astronaut tattoo rather than just getting stars, planets, and/or galaxies. These tattoo designs can range from just being an astronaut on the moon or the astronaut could be just one part of a larger tattoo. Either way, the owner is trying to send the message that they love the idea of floating around in space like a real astronaut.

Astronaut Tattoo Meaning

Here are a few of the different meanings for these cool tattoos.

Career Goal

Let’s go with the obvious astronaut tattoo meaning first. If an astronaut has been to space and wants a tattoo, it just makes sense that they would want to get an Astronaut tattoo, right? In these cases, they might get a tattoo of themselves in their spacesuit, or they might even get a completely unique astronaut tattoo design. However, something more likely would be getting something related to their training or the process of getting to where they were at. You might also see a NASA tattoo on an astronaut instead of an actual astronaut.

Another pretty obvious astronaut tattoo meaning has to do with when someone wants to be an astronaut. They are the type of people who have kept that dream alive well past their childhood and want to tell the world about it. They have thought about going to the moon or just leaving orbit and they want to encapsulate those images on their bodies. In other words, these could just be fans of space and astronauts and want to support the space program and people that explore space by getting an astronaut tattoo.

Patriotism

Many Americans see astronauts as symbols of freedom, so they will get a space tattoo to show their patriotism. America has gotten a lot of respect from around the world for countless things, but space was one of the biggest ones during the 20th century. These astronaut tattoos will usually include an astronaut and a flag, or the very popular image of an astronaut with the American flag on the moon.

Aiming for the Stars

Another popular astronaut tattoo meaning is “aiming for the stars.” When this meaning is used, the owner is someone who wants a constant reminder to go after what they want in life. There are plenty of design choices when using this meaning, but the owners usually choose one that can be a constant source of inspiration.

Out of the Box Meaning

A slightly rarer astronaut tattoo meaning has to do with science fiction. Since so many things having to do with science fiction happen in space, it’s no surprise that sci-fi lovers would get an astronaut tattoo for this reason. These tattoos can range from a very simple astronaut design to a more extravagant design with galaxies, planets, moons, and other elements.
