10 Best Moon Tattoos: Best Moon Tattoo Ideas

The moon has always held an almost mystical place in our hearts. We gaze into the night sky and watch as it waxes and wanes. It controls the oceans' tides, it’s nature's clock and calendar, and during full moons it brings to life the animal that lives in us all.

That is why we created our list of the 10 Best Moon Tattoo Ideas. To inspire you to get a tattoo that honors earth's natural satellite. This moon tattoo list will have something for everyone, with different tattoo styles, locations, and interpretations.

So, take a step outside and bathe in the moonlight, the same moonlight your ancestors and those before them basked in, and enjoy our list of the 10 Best Moon Tattoo Ideas…


#10: Wolf Howling at Moon Tattoo

Nothing audibly reminds us of a full moon more than the howling of dogs and wolves. Mans best friend seems to share a deeper connection with the lunar forces than us, and this tattoo captures that primal relationship beatifully.

#8: Moon Symbols and Sacred Geometry Tattoo

The geometry of the stars, planets, and moon, are the mathematical bases for how we have measured time for eons. This tattoo represents this universally large concept in a very compact and simplistic way, with elegant style to spare.

#7: Tree of Life with Moon Cycle Tattoo

The tree of life in this tattoo is complemented by the cycles of the moon. This tattoo not only represents growth, but also how we use time (moon cycles) to gauge that growth. Both life and time progress in cycles, just like the moon.

#1: Snake and Crescent Moon Tattoo

Just as the snake sheds its skin, the moon waxes and wanes. Both the snake and the moon are symbols of change and renewal. A perfect tattoo idea for anyone, because as we all know nothing is constant, we are always changing, from the cradle to the grave.
