Formed over 4.6 billion years ago, the solar system is home to eight planets and the sun.
Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Neptune, Saturn, Jupiter and Uranus are the eight large planets the solar system contains and are also subject for most of the solar system tattoos. Of course that is not all the solar system contains, there are also several hundred dwarf planets, over 3000 comets and approximately 702,663 minor planets. However, fitting all that in one tattoo might be a little too much!

Usually tattooed on a person's forearm, back or side; these tattoos look great in an elegant black and grey design but artistic colorful designs don't fall far behind. Whether you want dotwork, illustrative, watercolor or bold traditional style, a solar system tattoo will always live up to your expectations. These 18 solar system tattoos will prove it.
