The most common glyph of Aries is a simple “Y” pattern with two upper wings curling outward. A creative artist can churn out many amazing Aries tattoos by combining the “Y” glyph with stars, or designing the “Y” symbol as butterfly wings, fairy wings, sword handle etc. Likewise you can also consider a ram in black tribal style or a simple “Y” shape in a fashionable design such as superimposing it using a striking red color onto a black Celtic or tribal artwork of your choice.
