Outer Space Tattoo Ideas

Wrist Galaxy Tattoo For Guys

This is cool. Like how there isn’t a recognizable image in the pattern, just different colors clashing and cavorting to form a brightly hued solar system. The artist has done a great job keeping it loose and allows the colors to play off one another – especially the classic blue gas meets fireball scenario. The hints of white ink in stars and on the edges of color blocks helps the line work separate the colors enough without compromising the mix.

Sleeve Tattoos Space For Gentlemen

A beautiful sleeve tattoo featuring the bold decision to mix gray shading with sections of bright color in creating a 3D outer space tattoo. This piece is excellently rendered- the artist’s skills in line drawing, outlines, and color fills are sharp. The lower part of the tattoo mixing layers of colorful lights amongst gray fill color and rocks is exceptional. The planets too are well drawn, and the piece makes easy work incorporating the subject’s previous tattoos.

Tattoos Of The Earth For Guys

Love this full sleeve tattoo. The different mix of blue inks and shading to create the road pattern and solar system against negative space and black etching of the tree/power poles is exceptional. Also enjoy the bright yellow vortex of solar system at the top of the tattoo looking to swallow up the small, almost incidental space ship cruising past.

Another vortex here but this one is a nicely developed red which flows well in direct opposition to the brightly colored solar system. The artist had done well with with shape and color mixes to show this tattoo’s crispness and clarity. Using the dark star field amongst lighter cloud shapes is an excellent non-traditional fill throughout, while the planets themselves are clear and bright. 

Star Tattoo Men's Sleeve Ideas

A cleverly tattooed system of stars. This piece is very intricate however the work could get lost as the ink colors settle and change as the piece ages. A darker image throughout contrasted by less milky cloud might make a more versatile tattoo, and the bright star at bottom should be a larger focal point amongst the other stars. This is a tattoo where taking on additional dramatic license could work very effectively.

Stars Men's Sleeve Tattoo

A very likable small galaxy piece. The dark green 3D planet hovers amongst crisply etched, bright color effects and twinkling stars. The dark blue in particular is helpful, allowing a platform for both the red hole and star system to contrast against fluidly.

This upper arm tattoo is hectic. Using the 3D highlights to show power coruscating off from the top most planet is perfectly executed technique that runs through the rest of the artwork. This ink throws in asteroid belts, crackles of power and flame, and even a bad ass planetary ring into it yet never looks overwrought or too busy.

Star Constellations Men's Tattoos

This is different. The tattoo goes for a space theme but ultra bright solar systems have been replaced instead by a painter’s classical sense of style and realism. The highlight is the spacesuit and visor reflecting the earth’s image (personal preference would see me go for a lighter colored fill inside the visor). The use of white ink in such a big block has been deftly deployed , and contrasts well against the dark of the other fill.

Space Themed Tattoos For Men

Like this solar system meld. The colors coalesce beautifully around planets, stars and a nifty bit of black ink asteroid action. The technique to put detail into the fireball planet at image bottom is tremendously executed.

Space Tattoo Sleeve For Men

One of those pretty apocalypses. The clarity in this piece is flawless, the artist did an amazing job threading contrasting detail and color into every element of this sleeve tattoo. The sensational outer space – black filled with crackling blue energy and millions of stars – looks like a photograph not ink on skin. The fiery shoulder looks way too hot to touch because the glow is so well communicated to look like the heat from a working forge.

Space Tattoo Ideas For Men On Forearm

This outer space tattoo looks totally killer. The astronauts look like blokes waiting for an airport cab, not ones bouncing around the shiny surface of a planet. Creating the middle mirror image gives the artist a chance to show off,  molding the black moon to the surrounding deep blue of the far off planet.

Space Sleeve Tattoos For Men

Another solid outer space sleeve. It’s a really darkly etched tattoo, however the detail in star systems and shading around planets helps keep it from being too emo. The yellow planet on the inner bicep looks to be a feature, as is the smaller red/purple planet surrounded by stars.

Outer Space Tattoo FAQs

What does a galaxy tattoo mean?

Galaxy tattoos are versatile. There are no constraints you can place on them in terms, of size, style, color, or even weirdness. They epitomize a blank canvas for expression of symbolic body art.

The blank canvas approach means galaxy tattoos can represent a variety of different ideas, with the most popular being representative of the universe, science, space travel and dreams/future plans. They are also deployed in mysterious tattoos where the symbols change their focus alongside the subject’s motivations.
