28 Zodiac Tattoos To Never Tell Your Mother About

@circleandferns / Instagram

Getting a tattoo is a big no-no in most Latinx families, but horoscopes have all the yes. Sure, your mom doesn’t want you to “deface” your body but if you attach it to your horoscope, it is hard for her to say no. You may not want to show her but these zodiac tattoos about your sign are definitely something to consider.

Whether you’re looking for your first, or four-hundredth, the stars bestow favor on these options!

1. Carry the stars on your back, Aquarius family.

Mom definitely knows every mole, freckle and blemish on your body but it is alway worth at least trying to hide things from her. In that spirit, maybe getting a tattoo with the stars will change her mind.

2. If you’re an Aquarius and confident about your pecs, this is for you.

You’re also the social conscience of the zodiac, btw. Just tell your mama, you’re trying to make the world a better place.

3. Pisces fish circling its constellation.

The symbol for Pisces represents the duality of you guys: two fish tied together swimming in opposite directions. And since you’re probably such a great mediator, you’ll have no problem explaining this tat away to your family.

4. Pisces goddess with so much symbolism.

See that symbol on her neck? That’s the symbol for Pisces and if you want, you can start with a tattoo of just that to ease your mom into the idea.

5. Aries ram & constellation.

Aries is represented by a flying ram who knows how to get things done, and is able to carry its people to victory on its back. Clearly that is something to be proud of.

6. The earthy Taurus toro

Like a true earth sign, you’re sensual, practical and stubborn, which means that you’re going to pick a sick-ass tattoo like this one.

7. Gemini Double Time

Typically depicted by two twin brothers, this tat instead imagines two twin sisters, one mortal and one immortal. Get yourself a tattoo that’s like a creepy Mona Lisa and feel empowered forever.

8. We really like the twin sister vibe, ok?

Geminis are known for being expressive and, tbh, smart-asses. They’re also pros at thoughtful communication. You can’t hide anything from these hermanas.

9. Gemini duality is also about synergy.

Greek mythology remembers these two as peaceful siblings who never fought and loved each other. Can you name the gender in this tat? Probably because it doesn’t matter. 🙂

10. The Ethereal Cancer

Cancers are emotional, empathic and loyal af. They also have wild imaginations which leads to their artistic nature. You can tell by the next four slides that cancers live it up.

11. The Classic Constellation on the Ear Tattoo

I’m not sure what the artist intended, but for me, this is a two-fer of a cancer constellation and a bunch of evil eyes warding off bad luck. I’m inspired.

12. The Brave (and cutie) Crab

The Brave Crab resembles every Cancer we know’s small-dog-syndrome (y’know, when you think you’re a big tough guy but really you’re a chihuahua named Bruce). Maybe this crab tattoo is a reminder to find your inner soft side and put down the claws.

13. Moon in Cancer

So, liiike, did you know you have a whole natal chart and you can have different moons in different signs. You can be an Aquarius and have all your moons in Cancer, and have your mind be blown about why the way you are. Check it.

14. If you know you’re a gem, get this Cancer tattoo:

We’ve got another Moon in Cancer, folks, and I have a feeling that it can be a very dominant trait. This is the Sorting Hat folks: you can be who you already know you are.

15. If you’re a Leo, though, we all already know that.

CREDIT: @capone_tattoo / Instagram

Y’all are the life of the party, the big personalities, and there’s no abuelita or chancleta stopping you from getting whatever you want. Plus, this is a sick minimalist line drawing approach.

16. Virgos pay attention to detail.

In case you couldn’t tell by this tattoo with mad shading and little moon craters. Here we’ve got a Moon in Virgo, ay oh!

17. Classy Astro Finger Tats

CREDIT: @arielbego / Instagram

This is a pretty sweet look if you want to have the stars and all their telenovela mythology at the tips of your fingers. Plus, Virgos are known for being methodical, so counting off every finger as an expression from the universe are a classic.

18. Campy Minimalist Virgo

CREDIT: @isadoraslessa / Instagram

My favorite kind of Virgo. I love this because you can include so many more symbols that represent who you are. Plus, you don’t have to fill in every quadrant at once. Get to know yourself, then tell the world.

19. Libras in Miami

I can recognize that hibiscus flower from a mile away. If you’re a Libra and you’re from Miami, this is a pretty cute twist.

20. Scorpio brand on point (literally)

CREDIT: @livianunestattoo / Instagram

Scorpios are often misunderstood as brooding, complex, mysterious sex symbols. Ok, so they actually are all those things, but they’re also focused, brave, faithful and balanced. Just like this gorgeous tattoo.

21. Can you see the scorpion in the stars?

CREDIT: @also_known_as_john_lopez / Instagram

Scorpios might seem like fire signs because of all the feisty traits they embody, but they’re actually water signs.

22. When you wish you were a Scorpio so you could get this sick tattoo.

CREDIT: @isaactlwe_mancilla / Instagram

They’re fierce, they’re sensitive, they’re not even close to ‘rough around the edges.’ Can you tell I’m in a relationship with one of these charmers?

23. BEHOLD: Scorpios can take the pain of some serious shading.

I mean, hot ? damn ?! Be careful of that stinger, am I right? Yeesh, and those claws. And pinchers. Let’s move onto Sagittarius, shall we?

24. ? Sagittarius ?

CREDIT: @blacksheep13_tattoo / Instagram

Like other fire signs, Sagittarius needs to experience todo al mundo. They’re usually hilarious, generous and romanticize everything. This tattoo, though, is it.

25. Sag’s are the philosophers of the group.

CREDIT: @neoroyalsag / Instagram

They dream big and aim (literally) high. So why not get a gold-crested tattoo behind your ear?! You’re a Sagittarius–you can’t be held back.

26. Capricorns, The OG GOAT.

CREDIT: @reh.inkcapricorn / Instagram

Yep, I said it. Just like actual goats, Capricorns are determined to climb that mountain and look casual while trying. Sure, they can be workaholics, a little (a lotta) inhibited and stubborn, but that’s just one half. I need this tattoo to serve as a reminder that you can’t be mitad Capricorn. ?

27. TBH, Capricorns are the closest sign to an actual unicorn. ?

CREDIT: @marikinagirl / Instagram

But remember to self-care, fellow Capricorns, and refill your pot of rainbow magic. And by self-care, I mean go get another tattoo. You’ve earned it!

28. Or, just get your whole natal chart tattooed!

CREDIT: @circlesandferns / Instagram

I mean, that’s a pretty sweet way to encompass all of you, since you’ll be banned from ever getting another tattoo again anyway. #SorryKatVonD

Here Are The Latino Sodas You Need To Try Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Here Are The Latino Sodas You Need To Try Based On Your Zodiac Sign

nataliedrawn / topochicousa / Instagram

While the rest of society is tapping into how nature is a significant signaler to our emotional and spiritual needs, Latinos grew up finding meaning in every change in the wind, and every dream. We’re superstitious AF, but we’re also highly in tune with nature.

We’re also chugging soda and eating Goya beans from a can because it’s 2019 and we have full-time jobs and three other gigs to get to. Whatever you have on your plate today, these zodiac-aligned sodas are destined to be more effective for you, hijo de las estrellas.

Aries (March 21 – April 19)

Honey, the arrangement of the stars this summer is signaling you to stay off the ‘gram. Get away from social media and get out of your head. There’s nothing like a sweet, tropical Jupiña to take with you to the beach or mountains.

Taurus (April 20 – May 20)

Taurus’s are often misunderstood as lazy, but the fact is that you are more in touch with your self and your needs than any other sign. You’re free from the shame of indulging as an act of self-love. So when you have a Malta, you definitely add condensed milk to it to maximize the effects of every self-treat. Plus, it reminds you of drinking Malta as a niño and feeling like you could kick your feet up with the beer-drinking adults.

Gemini (May 21 – June 20)

Credit: ztiworoh / Twitter

You’re represented by celestial twins–signifying a range of meanings, primarily to represent your many interests. The story goes that the goddess had so many passions, she doubled herself to get it all done. Cuba’s Iron Beer hasn’t decided whether it’s root beer or cream soda, and that’s because, like you, it can be both. 

Cancer (June 21 – July 22)

This summer, your space is yours. Whether you’re staying home to reflect and refuel your tank or burning up that gasolina on the dance floor, Jarritos stay with you. Nourishing both your home realm and your social side will be important for you. Pro tip: spiked Jarritos is even better.

Leo (July 23 – August 22)

Leo, your allure could be spotted from a mile away. Inca Kola’s neon yellow bubble gum flavors will make you glow in the dark. Don’t play like that doesn’t sound like your dream.

Virgo (August 23 – September 22)

Credit: topochicousa / Instagram

The energies of the lunar eclipse in Capricorn is still inspiring productivity like never before in you, hermit. Topo Chico is not a soda, per se, but it is a bubbly drink that you can enjoy anytime. Whether you’re drinking it straight from the bottle at your desk or adding your favorite fruits, Topo Chico is the only bubbly you need to keep you in the zone.

Libra (September 23 – October 22)

Ooh, Libra, your summer is set to look very physically (read: so much sex) active. You always have many people vying for your attention, but as you work on building trust with your chosen partner, you’re going to need to hydrate. Materva is brewed with mate leaves, giving you a bit of caffeine (alongside 40 grams of sugar, but who’s counting) to fuel your love life.

Scorpio (October 23 – November 21)

Credit: CityandStateUS / Instagram

Like Mexican Coke, you, scorpion, have a cult following. But this month isn’t about what other people think of you. No matter the expectations of you, it’s time to turn inward and go back to old wounds that cause all the classic drama in your life. Don’t worry, when you let it go, you’ll still be a classic inside and out.

Sagittarius (November 22 – December 21)

Credit: squirrelseatnuts / Instagram

Travels are in your future, Sagittarius. There’s nothing more germane to its country of origin than Colombiana soda. Its bubble gum scented cream soda flavors will always remind you of the importance of honoring the place you visit.

Capricorn (December 22 – January 19)

Credit: sidralmundet / Instagram

Fellow sea goats–it has been un mes tan pesado. No te preocupes–instead of trying to find out where you fit, it’s time to realize you belong everywhere in this world. You’re not just a Mundet, you’re an elusive green apple cider. Embrace your individuality. It will set you free.

Aquarius (January 20 – February 18)

Credit: sylver907 / Instagram

You, Aquarius, are in a humanitarian activist mode. With Puerto Rico’s police force firing tear gas and rubber bullets at protesters, PR’s favorite soda, Kola Champagne, will be fuel for your fire.

Pisces (February 19 – March 20)

Our favorite water-lovers can take their game to the next level this summer with Coco Rico. This soda is here for you when you want to drink out of a coconut on the beach, but with more sugar and carbonation. It’s next-level water, básicamente.

These Tattoo Fails Failed So Hard They Might Actually Be Winning

tatuajesxd / Instagram

Tattoos are so symbolic, that it’s not hard to figure out what is really important to the people who have them. For Latinos, it’s a perfect way to show our connection to our roots, our love for our culture and the pride of being who we are and of the people that came before us.

Obviously, there is an enormous well of inspiration in our folklore and ancestral art.

But what happens when you have a tattoo fail?

Let’s hope this is still a work in progress…

Loteria card tattoos are popping up everywhere and they can be great but you got to do it right. Hopefully, this is just the first session and it’s on its way to looking gorgeous.

Come on…there has to be a better way to pay homage to the humble yet iconic sombrereo?!

This samurai may just cut off that nipple…

Come on people! Nipple placement! How are people not paying attention to this very important detail?

No hair? No problem!

Credit: pinknightmare.com

We’ll just throw on some copyrighted Louis Vuitton monogram and ya – problem solved!

And a trend that seems to be growing: face tattoos.

Credit: pinknightmare.com

Just what is even happening here? Who is he? Why on your face? What is the whole truth?!

We weren’t totally sure to include this Brazilian artist’s work on the list…

Credit: Malfeitona / Instagram

Because “ugly tattoos” are kinda her jam. She prides herself on providing tatuagens peba, which translates to ugly tattoos. And although she can’t draw, people are all about her original ideas and less than perfect drawing skills.

Not only has the tattoo artist gone viral for it, but she’s also managed to build a successful business with dozens of 5-star reviews from happy customers, as well as over 12 thousand Instagram followers.

OK, I didn’t know Timon and Pumbaa could be cute and ugly at the same time.

Credit: Malfeitona / Instagram

Like yea…it looks like a 4-year-old drew it but hey apparently there are thousands of people into it.

Also, aren’t stars like one of the earliest things we all learn to draw?

Credit: Malfeitona / Instagram

Stars are simple! Why does it look like this? But you keep doing you girl.

With this tattoo the idea is cute but it just didn’t really work out…

Credit: tatuajesxd / Instagram

Like seriously, love the idea. But that concha looks kinda off, the font – mmm no.

Memorializing the iconic pollo on a stick.

Credit: tatuajesxd / Instagram

This pollo on a lollipop falls into that same category: good on paper but just didn’t quite turn out the way we hoped.

And I know, who doesn’t love a taco tattoo?

Credit: wiltattooer / Instagram

Well…me. At least no this one.

This little taco is almost too cute to include on this list but it just wasn’t giving us that polished tattoo look we need in a good tattoo.

We’re not sure that their tattoo artist achieved the desired effect…

Credit: iamboigenius.com

But ya calalte…nobody tell them the truth.

Apparently, we Latinos really have a thing for putting designer brands all over our bodies – permanently.

Credit: pinknightmare.com

At least the tattoo artist actually put the right initials…
