Libra Tattoos have become a unique and popular way to express Libra pride. For those born Libras (such as myself), we are proud of our Zodiac sign.
Libras believe in love and social harmony, so what better way to express these wonderful feelings than by getting a tattoo? You might not be a believer or live your life even considering the characteristics of your zodiac sign. However, positive things should be welcome in anyone’s life.
Libra tattoos look amazing when they depict the afferent sign or when they are combined with other symbols. People went from just getting the word Libra tattooed on their skin, to combining its symbol with other elements that have deep meanings and a considerable visual impact.
What’s really interesting about Libra as a zodiac sign is its duality. We have always used the ratio between good and evil as a way to conduct our lives. When you are aware of a possible imbalance, you do whatever it takes to go back on track. Libras need people around them and they are willing to adapt.
Any person whose zodiac sign is Libra wants to harmoniously live among others and they are open to compromise. This is probably why many couples have combined the symbols of their zodiac signs into a design and inked it in their skin. These cases aren’t as often met as those highlighting the balance between positive and negative.
Depending on each person’s moral conduct, the list dividing good from bad may include features such as chastity, temperance, charity, diligence, patience, kindness and humility. On the other side, we can count lust, gluttony, greed, sloth, wrath, envy and pride. In fact, these words are part of numerous Libra tattoos.
If astrology and zodiac signs are among your passions, you will definitely find an inspiring design among the next 69 examples of simple and complex Libra tattoos. They come in various sizes and tattoo styles to match every individual’s taste.
69 Libra Tattoo Ideas:
69. Balance on the middle finger
The placement of this tattoo is kind of ironic. I think the middle finger is an international offensive sign. Even so, that tiny Libra symbol is tattooed with such precision that it makes me want one alike! If you are anxious to get tattooed on your fingers, you might want to check this article out for more examples and inspiration!
68. Making a statement on thy wrist
Getting Libra tattoos on visible body parts is sort of a statement. In this person’s case, she is definitely proud of her zodiac sign and she probably finds herself under the influence of Venus, the planet of love and money. Tiny tattoos like this one are usually symbolic, not meant to be visually appealing, but to make a point.
67. Cute lettering on foot
Tattoos made of words and accompanied by small symbols are popular among women. They like subtle and elegant Libra tattoos that compliment their body parts by drawing attention on ankles, wrists and even collarbones. Charm is one of the characteristics of a person born under the sign of Libra.
66. Centered Libra symbol on a wrist
There’s something about this picture that highlights the delicacy of this woman’s wrist and her tattoo. It might be the light, her features or just this really nice tattoo. The curved lines and the gray ink are a successful combination. In case you don’t know, there are several types of black ink used in tattooing. Not everyone prefers intense black when they can get a washed out gray.
65. Inscription on the nape of the neck
Libras are characterized by diplomacy, finesse and charm. While I can’t tell if this person is diplomatic or not, I can say for sure that she is elegant and charming. The tattoo she chose for the nape of her neck is feminine and calligraphic. She must be a very proud Libra since she opted for a pretty large text tattoo.
64. A birthday to remember
Libra tattoos like this one don’t reveal any information about their owners. In fact, I am sure that someone very special was born on the date inked below the Libra symbol. A partner, a child or even a best friend could earn their spots on someone’s skin if they are worthy. Also called a tribute tattoo, this is beautifully shaded.
63. A Libra among the stars

If you are looking for a simpler way to represent planets, you can go for tiny stars. Instead of opting for an elaborate tattoo, this person settled for three red stars and the name of her zodiac sign. I like how she replaced the letter A with the symbol of Libra. That is a very inspired choice that looks nicer than the letter itself. Also, red and black are two colors that go great together.
62. Balanced matters of the heart
Here’s the killer red and black combination again! Red is a very passionate color and Venus is the ruler of Libra, so there’s no mystery behind this choice. Red hearts hang over the Libra symbol, but they don’t look perfectly balanced. This tattoo might refer to how improbable it is to achieve perfect balance in what we do.
61. The Libra Tattoo and the Aquarius
Libra and Aquarius are two very compatible zodiac signs. These two aren’t only romantically compatible, but in a very general way that includes a multitude of aspects. This woman is probably involved with an Aquarius. I like her choice in placement because it is isn’t in a place everyone can see.
60. The heart twist between a Leo and a Libra
Couple tattoos aren’t always obvious like most Libra tattoos are. For example, this heart twist is made of the zodiac symbol for Leo and that for Libra. The contour is edgy and precise, fact which makes this tattoo a tiny masterpiece. Libras are known to be tasteful people and this is a very good example!
59. Zodiacal overlaps on skin
Based on the same idea as the previous tattoo, this one is more colorful and less combined. The sign of Libra is overlapped by the sign of Leo and they both create a nice couple tattoo. The feminine part from this couple is obviously the Leo and the man is the Libra. I’d say their choice in colors is also clever since it hides other details as well.
58. Dancing Libra Tattoo: stars on skin
Libra tattoos aren’t all the same. This is definitely a good thing because tattoos are a way of expressing ourselves is an unique way. Dancing might be this individual’s passion that was combined with her zodiac sign. The stars could have literal significance or a metaphorical one. No matter what, if Libras can dance, so can you!
57. Libras gathering in a triangle
Ankle tattoos are flattering for women especially when they are interesting too. The combination of a few symbols denotes mystery and it can be fully representative. The inking process shouldn’t be too painful in this case. It is an area that can be easily accessed and that allows tracing straight and precise lines.
56. Vectors, stars and a Libra symbol
This pretty woman has a sort of galaxy tattooed on her temple. The galaxy is not represented in the most usual way, but with the help of a vector, tiny stars and her zodiac sign. Each of us has his or her own universe. This tattoo is the perfect example in this regard. It’s nice, but not everyone’s cup of tea due to its location.
55. Libra is made of birds
Unless you take a close look at this tattoo, it will seem like some kind of futuristic design. It’s far from that, because it is made of three birds. Actually, it’s made of the black silhouettes of three birds that look like flying towards one another. Libra tattoos are versatile when it comes to designing them in original ways.
54. Candle holder in perfect balance
People born under the sign of Libra feel the need to maintain balance in everything they do. They accept what others think and believe in without judging them. They expect the same in return. This candle holder could be a sign of light and luxury. Sadly, the details in this tattoo aren’t too evocative. I appreciate the sharp edges because they require a lot of precision.
53. Libra sign resting on a pink carnation
Libras love colors, music and dancing. The first feature fits perfectly in the context of this tattoo. The blue Libra sign looks like it’s resting on the petals of a pink carnation. The carnation is nicely drawn, appearing like it has recently flourished. The lime green background highlights the flower and contributes to making Libra tattoos special.
52. Libra is pretty in pink
Libra is a masculine sign, but I guess it looks pretty in pink as well. Women are chic regardless of their zodiac sign. So, this is one woman’s vision of Libra tattoos. Did you know that the pink pigment used to be very expensive and only noble persons could afford it? Men used to wear pink clothes to show their rank and richness. These days there isn’t a color more feminine than pink.
51. A combination against the odds
The compatibility between Aries and Libra is generally low. However, who says you can’t fight faith and be with whoever you want? To sustain your cause, you can add a permanent tattoo on your body to remind you of positivity in case negativity occurs. Hidden, but extra cute, this design is among my favorites so far!
50. Libra made of thorns
A Libra symbol can be easily embellished because its original design is pretty basic. This person opted for thorns and a rose that beautifully merge with the Libra sign. Black and white tattoos are mysterious in a way, but that’s not a feature that characterizes a person born under the sign of Libra. If you are a Libra, then you know how much art attracts you.
49. Libra shadowed by a rainbow
A very cute and feminine tattoo, this Libra symbol is shadowed by all the pretty colors of a rainbow. Although they don’t mean anything in astrology terms, they are visually appealing. This is a fun way of expressing femininity and getting a tattoo that has deeper meaning at the same time. The symbol itself is not complete, but the point was made.
48. Pretty colored stars over the Libra
Libra tattoos can look happy and colored. They blend in nicely with motifs that are more or less connected to each other. The symbol seems like made of stone due to the pattern drawn on it. While I’m not sure why, I guess this random association does its job really well. Libras are incurable artists who sometimes express themselves through nonconformity.
47. Infinity comes with good and bad
Shrouded in abstract shapes that form the sign of infinity, this pair of scales is nicely detailed. The main idea of this tattoo comes from the fact that Libras are patient people. If something goes wrong or if they have to wait for something to happen, they have the needed patience to do so until they get exactly what they initially wanted. I wish I was a Libra, don’t you?
46. The Moon and the Sun as equals
Numerous individuals think of the Moon as the opposite of the Sun. The origin of this theory has deep roots in various legends and it looks like it lives on. As long as you find two contrasting things, you can put them in a scale to express duality. Moreover, you can get a tattoo with your idea and have all the reasons to brag about it if it turns out as nice as this one!
45. Yin and Yang or the animal scale
As previously said, the scale can depict opposites. This person went an extra mile to express the same idea by using different symbols. The main point is the same, but I have to admit it, this design looks really cool! The lines are nice, clean and very precise. These are much needed qualities for this type of graphic tattoo.
44. The tree of life in perfect balance
The tree of life is a symbol that talks about the connection between earth and heaven. It is immortal and its fruits can pass on immortality, but they aren’t available to humans. It’s said that the cosmos is easier to understand through the tree of life and that’s probably what this person is looking for. I like the Libra symbol addition from the middle of the tree’s trunk.
43. The third eye, the Moon and the Sun
Libras aren’t typical spiritual people, but there are always exceptions. However, they are sensitive and romantic creatures, so in a way they might be attracted to the third eye and what it represents. What’s certain, is that this tattoo looks magnificent thanks to all the delicate details comprised by it. Judging by its location, it’s not a large tattoo, fact which makes inking details a lot harder.
42. Originality stands in geometrical shapes
In case you were looking for a tattoo design that is original, now you found it. Libras are known for their originality, but what they lack is a way of expressing it. Happily, this person managed to combine various geometrical shapes into a very cool tattoo that holds more information that it seems. Scapula tattoos are quite popular among women.
41. Powered by the force of Libra
Libra tattoos that look like complicated machines aren’t easy to encounter. This one is a pretty decent example. The Libra sign from the center or this highly complex and complicated system looks like the only source of power that keeps things under control. I am very fond of the abstract shapes that could mean anything. They put your imagination at work, aren’t they?
40. A butterfly resting on a scale
The pair of scales from this tattoo design aren’t perfectly balanced. The butterfly addition is supposed to bring positivity to it. The contrast between colored and gray says nothing but that, don’t you think? Libras are altruist persons who find happiness in helping others, hence the splash of color.
39. Balance conducted by divine
Although Libras are impulsive people, they are open minded and always ready for enlightening. They think profoundly, but they lack the ability to draw conclusions. Maybe that’s why some of them settle for believing in a higher power that keeps things balanced here on Earth. This tattoo represents the graphic way of saying just that.
38. Graphic scale with Aquarius descendant
Among the most modern tattooing techniques, this graphic technique is based on minimalism. The meaning behind it can be translated in astrological terms only. The only reason the sign of Aquarius appears in the left scale would be as a descendant. Astrologists say that every person’s descendant is almost as important as his or her zodiac sign.
37. The pair between a Libra and a Bell Flower
Unchanging love, honesty and obedience match perfectly with the characteristics of a Libra. The Bell Flower is known to originate from Venus’s magic mirror. Legend has it that when it shattered, the magic mirror caused the occurrence of multiple Bell Flowers. The connection between Venus and Libras is that Venus is Libra’s ruler planet. The color intensity of these purple flowers is simply mesmerizing!
36. How the cross rules balance
Libras are adepts of different religions, so it only makes sense to find Libra tattoos mixed with various religious symbols. Mythology is not the only source of inspiration for these open minded individuals. As for the ink job, I’d say this design was inked by a professional. Libras don’t settle for less.
35. Lady Justice maintains the balance
Another higher power that is supposed to guide Libras, Lady Justice was nicely drawn for this tattoo. She looks fierce and could send a very empowering feeling. She might be blindfolded, but she’s definitely not blind. Inked in a neo-traditional style, this tattoo is worthy of a second look.
34. Tribal vision of zodiac parents
A tribal tattoo from every point of view, this one is related to the zodiac parents of a Libra, namely Aries and Cancer. The meaning is pretty straightforward, but this doesn’t make this tattoo less interesting. Placed on a person’s arm, it looks symmetrical and inked by a person who pays special attention to detail.
33. The anchor that destabilizes balance
The meaning of the anchor in relation to Libras is strength and stability. These days, this symbol is no longer 100% associated with sailors or the sea. More and more people tend to find other meanings for it. In this case, it’s obvious that the anchor talks about stability because it is depicted as a supporting pile.
32. Masculinity expressed by massive metal balance
Libra tattoos can be both feminine and masculine. This one is a very good example of a tattoo fitted for men. The shapes and the materials depicted in tattoo designs can be changed according to the person who will have it inked. This tattoo is manly and holds the same deep meaning as some of the previous ones.
31. Sunrise and sunset in a Libra sign
Talking about contrast and duality, this tattoo fits in the same category. Although the contrasting parts are slightly different, they have the same meaning. I like how colorful and positive this ink jobs looks like. I am tempted to design my own sunrise/sunset tattoo without any astrological meaning. How about you?
30. Fitting in the Ace of Spades
The metasymbology of the Ace of Spades is to unravel the secrets of life. It provides inspiration, which is much needed when trying to maintain a balance in your life. This tattoo is not only meaningful, but also quite successful in terms of precise lining and shading. The lion’s face doesn’t look too accurate, but I don’t think it was meant to. Such symbols may be combined for a deeper effect.
29. The Angel versus the Devil
Sustaining the same idea of duality, this person chose a more complex tattoo part of all the Libra tattoos available. On one side, we have a beautiful woman angel who represents the good, and on the other side there’s the devil with its afferent flames. Is it just me or the devil is winning? The white ink work is quite admirable. It’s definitely not easy to pull off such diaphanous wings.
28. Transparent and abstract scale art
The transparent effect is difficult to create with needles and ink, but it is obviously not impossible. A more abstract than a concise design, this particular drawing was a challenge for the tattoo artists who had to ink it. The proportions could seem off, but that’s just because of the chosen point of view. Libra tattoos like this one are different and nice!
27. Beauty keeps things in balance
Libra is a masculine zodiac sign, but this beautiful woman sure fits better in a tattoo. She looks so careless while moving her hips on the sound of the music she is probably singing. Barefoot and pretty wild, she keeps a perfect balance between the two pots she’s carrying to wherever she’s going. Nice black and white ink job!
26. Under someone’s aegis
Both the Roman and the Greek mythology embrace the concept of aegis. The latter refers to a powerful source of protection. Since it can be explained in numerous ways, there are low chances for me to get it right. What matters is that the balance is not far from being perfect and the tattoo expresses some of the Roman art.
25. Between fire and water there’s air
This is the scale of justice. It holds water on one side and fire on the other. The connection with Libra is made on a metaphorical level. As you might already know, Libra is an air sign. The colors used for this tattoo are bright and vibrant, creating a powerful contrast with the lifeless metallic effect.
24. Astronomically correct Libra sign
This is the way Libra looks on the sky. This tattoo is among the Libra tattoos that are original and not at all obvious when it comes to their meaning. Made of several dots and a star, this simple tattoo compliments this lady’s collarbone and it looks as delicate as it gets. Now that you’ve seen this, aren’t you curious how your zodiac sign looks like on the sky?
23. Fantasist colored Libra sign
Based on the same principle as the previous tattoo, this one is less delicate and more fantasist. It includes other astronomical elements and it is full of color. The purple and the blue hues merge nicely together creating new shades. This entire tattoo looks like a piece of heaven ripped off and glued on skin.
22. Accurately balancing good and bad
This woman made a list of good and bad things, or better said emotions, and tattooed them on two sides of her back. She also got a pair of scales in the middle of her back, suggesting that there’s a balance that must be maintained even though we might all fall prey to what is wrong. These moral rules are more valuable than any religion.
21. The sturdy tree of life
The tree of life is a symbol often met in tattoo designs. It can be combined with various other symbols, such as the Libra sign. This particular pattern makes the tree of life look sturdy and thick. However, this is not the generally accepted vision over the tree of life. It is interpreted in various ways by various artists.
20. Libra born from Yin and Yang
Being redundant is not really my thing, but this tattoo represents everything redundant. The Libra alone expresses duality, so the presence of the Yin Yang symbol wasn’t really necessary. Maybe it was only meant to emphasize the same idea, or maybe the person who had it inked thought it looks cool. Well, he or she was right about that aspect.
19. Human and skeleton on a scale
On a much more detailed and elaborate level, this tattoo is very similar with the previous one. When it comes to the symbolism of this tattoo and the other one, they are all about duality. The half-human, half-skeleton entity has his arms chained above his head on a device that looks like a scale. I can’t think of a better location for this tattoo than this person’s arm.
18. Forgive your own sins
While trying to disregard the feminine figure that holds this scale, you will notice that sins and forgiveness and situated as opposites. Written in a nice, cursive way, these words hold a great deal of emotional load. That’s what tattoos are all about: emotions. The visual part is also very important and spectacular at the same time, but what really matters is sometimes the message that hides behind it. As a final thought, we are all aware of how hot this lady is, but we’re not all at peace with our sins.
17. Pretty in flowers and pink
This is a neo-traditional tattoo that looks a little too pink to be located on a guy’s arm, but it is! I mean, who wouldn’t like to have such a pretty being immortalized on his or her arm? She looks like a fairy and I don’t think that is his zodiac sign. He probably got it as a tribute for a feminine presence from his life. The pots made of flowers are a great idea, right?
16. The Sun, the Moon and the eyes
..Or simply put, eyes on scales. This is a unique tattoo idea that highlights the fact that people’s perspectives are very different. We can refer to the same thing in a million different ways. This is what makes us unique and original. This is what determined the tattoo artist to choose his profession and to ink such a wonderful design. Very nice work when it comes to shading!
15. The symbol engraved in skin
This tattooing style is fairly new. People wanted to get tattoos that looked like their body parts were stone and whatever was on them, was actually carved in it. The same goes for the ripped skin fashion. In case you don’t know, there are people who like the way ripped skin looks like and tattoo artists who deliver. Probably wanting to be trendy, in a good way, this guy chose to get the symbol of his zodiac sign permanently inked.
14. Blindfolded and trusting the balance
Black and white are ideal non-colors for tattoos. There’s no better way to draw something so mysterious and full of meaning than with black and white ink. Everything about this tattoo is a metaphor meant to be looked at and admired without further additions. You can actually see the tormented look on this girl’s face without actually seeing her.
13. Tribute Libra strikes again
Sadly, this tattoo wasn’t made of joy. It is obviously a tribute tattoo in the memory of someone who passed away. From 1964 to 2002, the person who is no longer among us was probably present in this guy’s life and he or she was a Libra. It seems that Libras a very nice people that we should want to have around for as long as we possibly can. As for this tattoo’s style, it has a nice metallic effect to it.
12. The Devil is trying to gain ground
Libra tattoos aren’t always magnificent when it comes to the art behind the message, but they are pretty decent. Libra tattoos like this one are quite rare. The main idea is so obvious that the person who looks at it can’t see it other than art. The scale’s gothic edges, the mighty creatures and the gray work are done in an excellent way!
11. Ancient Greek god serves as scale
The blessing of a god is always welcome, so let’s embrace the Greek god and try to balance everything in our lives! There are beautiful things in life and Libra tattoos that look like this particular one are the only proof you should need! There’s art in one’s soul and on canvas. Beautiful line work and usage of intense black ink!
10. Majestic eagle takes charge
Chest tattoos for men aren’t easy to design, but this guy pulled it off. He chose a majestic eagle and combined it with a few other elements that talk about him. He was born under the sign of Libra, so he combined the eagle with the shape of a scale. I especially like the rope effect and the polished look of the eagle. Would you go for a big piece like that?
9. Equality is justice in the hands of a goddess
Creating the effect of drapery on Libra tattoos and other tattoos in general is not an easy job. Only professional tattoo artists are able to do it properly. This design was meant to show her in a very powerful light and to send the message of greatness. Choosing equality and balance over everything that a sword represents indicates a certain belief that the greater good always prevails.
8. Spreading wings to fly
A playful and very colored tattoo, this makes me think of how uplifting is the feeling of content. When the Sun and the Moon are in perfect balance, things seem easier. They seem more encouraging and somehow they can make us think positive. So can pretty colors and designs that don’t look serious, but they very much are.
7. The tree of life and his swings
Life is full of moody moments and times when we have to deal with mood swings. The tree of life is not about that, but Libra tattoos are. Finding a connection between earth and heaven is definitely not easy, so we have to nurture what we have in order to achieve what we want. Getting tattoos on feet that form a bigger and nicer picture when they are together is a way of showing that you understand the importance of two separate and opposite sides.
6. The eternal combination between a Libra and a Taurus
The tree of life represents eternity, but the relationship between a Libra and a Taurus might as well be eternal. This could be a couple tattoo, not just a simple Libra tattoo part of the more elaborate Libra tattoos. The presence of the bull suggests that there is one more person involved and there’s also something eternal about it. The colors are very intense, especially the grass green and the sky blue. Those don’t seem diluted too much.
5. Traditional ear of wheat scale
Traditional tattoos have been around for tens of years. Yet, there are a lot of fans who still enjoy this tattooing style. Libra tattoos can be adapted to the traditional style. This particular tattoo is a perfect example in this regard. The ear of wheat is not really connected to the idea of a Libra, but I think it frames its symbol nicely.
4. Heart fights brain on a scale
Not a Libra tattoo in a conventional way, this one is absolutely genius. Some individuals put the Sun and the Moon on different sides of a scale, but this person chose to put a heart and a brain. I think this is genius because it talks about real struggles, not metaphorical ones. Awesome color and line work as well!
3. Dot, splash and duality
Since you’ve seen an example of a traditional tattoo, this is an example of a very modern tattooing style. It doesn’t have a patented name yet, but it is based on the usage of splashes of color. The most met combination of colors is red and black, just like in this example. As you can see, it is full of dual elements that express this person’s beliefs, including her zodiac sign.
2. Awaken your magic powers
The cobra is a spectacular animal, especially when you see it tattooed on a person’s chest. In Greek mythology, it represents wisdom and it is able to awaken one’s magical powers in the most metaphysical way possible. As a tattoo, playing the role of mediator between good and bad, it is simply gorgeous and manly too.
1. Balance found in body parts
I know, I know! This tattoo doesn’t seem real, but it is! Such masterpieces really exist and they have common topics, such as Libra tattoos. I admire this lady’s courage to cover that part of her body!
