Virgo tattoos are profound indications of a grounded nature.
Pragmatic minds can relish their horoscope with these succinct creations. Their swift little logo is attached to medicine and healing, so the dual meaning is bound to boost your well-being.

Virgo Tattoo Ideas
A nicely stylized 3D tattoo of the Virgo glyph – it could almost be confused for a branding iron. Like the use of negative space to front the shape and use of black and gray shade gives the tattoo a metallic feel and cool sense of depth.
This flowing calligraphy style Virgo glyph looks brilliant on the hand in black ink and slight shadow. Love the cursive curvature and attention to detail.
In traditional astrology representations of the Maiden are sometimes known to hold wheat in her right hand. The term Virgo is derived from the Latin and means self sufficient. The leg tattoo above is fantastic – a huge and perfectly executed head of wheat that looks like it could be found in any grain growing region of the world. The cluster of grains and grass strands look to be pushed by wind across the subject’s thigh.
The Virgo glyph in this neo traditional tattoo is just a small part of the image. It’s represented in clean yellow and orange backed by cheeky black cracked stone line work. The rest of the image is American traditional in style enlivened by a mixture of bright colors and black/gray shading.
A simple, minimalist style single needle Virgo glyph. This piece would skew towards shop minimum pricing as it’s small and relatively easy to ink in. Shop minimum for most studios are around the $50-$80 mark.
This is a beautifully elegant fine black expression of the Virgin flanked by other common symbols, wheat, and the Virgo constellation (top right in fine dot to dot line). The artist has chosen a delicate pure line tattoo , however the faintness of ink in places suggests this art could be developed with more shading detail down the track. You”ll often find for works such as this the outline will be done in one sitting, before another finishing session.
A nice wrist tattoo in black ink. Nothing fancy, just good crisp black work well placed close to the subject’s hand.
Another head of wheat this time etched in sharp black fine needle. The grains here are more general shape than highly detailed sketch, however the artist has captured the essence of the plant rustling in a breeze to good effect.
This Virgo glyph is cool. It looks like the signet part of a ring used by nobles to press into wax for sealing messages back in the middle ages. The complexity of shadow work well backed by black fill helps this piece show out immensely.
A beautiful wreath of wheat wrought in simple black style. The tattooist cleverly opted to keep the grain hollow rather than fill in with black or shade which gives it a more interesting perspective. It’s a very crisp, fresh piece of art.
This tattoo outlines the constellation Virgo. Adding a variety of clear, bright colors to fill each ‘star’ gives it the sense of map work and looks great in contrast to the plotted lines.
This is quite an original version of the Virgo glyph. Really like it’s flowing style and the fat curvature in the all black single needle that’s reminiscent of a baseball cap logo or slightly elaborate cattle brand.
The twin constellations in this piece look like an unfinished dot to dot puzzle left behind at the doctor’s surgery by a sick (or lazy) child. They’re both cleanly etched in straight, fine black ink.
Another excellent tattoo symbolizing the relationship between wheat and the Virgin. This one uses great realism technique to show the cluster of grains and grass stems in fine gray scale on the inner forearm.
Quite a risky choice to show the Virgo constellation within a star pattern inked with alternating blue and purple dot work. It works well, however the lightness of the brightly colored dots could be an issue down the track should the ink quality not be top standard. Choosing to capture the stars with negative space is well done but may have had greater impact if the entire tattoo was larger.
Well deployed twin inner forearm constellation tattoos. Like the contrast between the fine line work of the linked stars with the circular border shapes to hold in dot work. The negative space circles look fine but the addition of some color could crank up the image contrast by about ten notches.
Beautiful stylized Virgo tattoo mixing a detailed maiden’s eye with an empty negative space image of wheat. The eye is etched with great intensity, supported by expert shadow fill around the contrasting invisible grain.
Classic black and gray sketch technique sees a single head of wheat tattooed elegantly on the subject’s inner forearm. It’s exceptional art work utilizing beautiful fine line needle work and light but richly developed shading.
This is an eternally cool abstract Virgo glyph combining elements of calligraphy and watercolor in two-tone blue ink. The artist’s choice to employ white ink highlights add to the the funky Zodiac sign’s avant-garde sensibilities.
More wheat, but this time certain elements of the piece have been tattooed in vastly different style to those previously. There’s a great deal more emphasis on the outline, done in a thicker, bolder, black single needle. Also, this tattoo creates contrast to the detailed grain clusters with stretches of geometric style black line pattern. It gives the ink an opportunity to balance and broaden across the calf muscle.
A flat black Virgo glyph cast simply but cleanly on the inner bicep. There’s nothing spectacular about the thick, black artwork but it’s professionally crafted and looks solid.
This curving Virgo glyph abuts the previous tattoo above the subject’s right breast and must be linked to the symbolized name/hand. The new black ink curves pleasingly but it does encroach heavily into already occupied space. If the glyph were smaller and finer in detail it would likely fit against the companion image a lot more cleanly.
This wrist glyph has hooks in it akin to those massive black pseudo tribal sleeve and back pieces that were popular in the mid-late 2000s. It’s very black and bold, but unlike its’ tribal forebears a much more manageable size. The use of simple accompanying shadow deftly finishes off the tattoo and makes for a nice Virgo image on skin.
