Spaceship Tattoo Ideas For The True Cosmos Lovers And Explorers

Categories Other TattoosPosted on

Exploration and never-ending dreaming was the leading inspiration for humans to get up in space. Four hundred years ago, no one could have probably imagined that one day humans will step on the moon’s surface. Also, nobody would have known that we will be able to look back in time. Today, spacecraft are no longer only a topic of science fiction. They help us to explore our universe and maybe one day they will help us to discover some new worlds. So, a spaceship tattoo is a perfect choice if you are keen on cosmos-related or sci-fi things.

Spaceship tattoo meaning

Since the ancient times, people tried to reach the sky and look beyond. It took thousands of years of developing various machines until we finally built the first manned spacecraft. In the past seventy years, we made a breakthrough in cosmic exploration. And finally, in 1961, Yury Gagarin completed a full orbit with Vostok 1 around the earth and returned home.

Since then, humans made some fantastic discoveries in the cosmos. Spacecraft not only allows us to explore our universe, but they also help us down here on earth. Satellites provide us with GPS, television and many other technologies. Thanks to the satellite technologies, we can track down the criminals, find a place in a foreign town, and predict the weather.

But the primary purpose of the spaceship has always been to reach the distant places. So far, we have only visited the moon, but we are planning to go to the Mars in the next decade. So, with this in mind, a spaceship is an ultimate symbol of space exploration. If you like to discover new things and dream about cosmos – it’s a perfect choice.

Another symbol of a spaceship is the progress of the humanity. We don’t have any better technology that could take us to the moon or Mars. Until today, we rely only on fuel-based rockets and spacecraft that uses the gravity of the planets as a slingshot to go further. We don’t know what the future of space exploration holds for us. But the spaceships will probably be the primary tool for quite a long time.

Types of spaceship tattoos

In real life, there are eight main types of different spacecraft! Right now, there is only one manned spaceship orbiting the earth – The International Space Station. But there are thousands of satellites around our orbit, and a few spacecraft flying into other planets. However, thanks to the sci-fi, we have many drawings and concepts of fantastic spaceships that may someday become very real.

Spaceship tattoo ideas

Whether alone or together with other elements such as stars or planets, spaceship tattoos look good in almost every tattoo style. If you are a fan of old-school tattoos, there are many designs for you. However, if you prefer minimal and small tattoos, there are even more of those. Also, a rocket tattoo is quite a popular choice for a couple. For example, a guy gets a spaceship on his wrist, and a girl gets a small planet on the same spot. The rocket is always reaching out the planet, thus symbolizing their intense relationship. ↓
