Think about the most responsible friend you have. They’re a Capricorn, aren’t they? We figured. Known as one of the most hardworking and responsible signs of the zodiac, Capricorns are diligent in the pursuit of their goals and are extremely practical in every aspect of their lives.

Born during the period of Dec. 22 through Jan. 19 and as the last earth sign of the zodiac, Capricorns are symbolized by the sea-goat, a creature that is half goat and half fish. The creature’s duality is said to represent the Capricorn’s ability to navigate both sides of their personalities, with one side being more grounded and practical and the other being more sensitive and emotional.

Like many others who share their astrological sign – i.e. Michelle Obama and David Bowie – Capricorns are high achieving and extremely graceful individuals. They also make extremely loyal friends and partners. Typically seen with a tight-knit group of longtime friends, Capricorns love to take care of those close to them and would do anything to see their loved ones happy. So if anyone were to convince them to get a Capricorn zodiac tattoo, it’d be a trusted confidant.

Because we know you would have to come fully prepared with references to convince the Capricorn in your life to get a tattoo, ahead are a few of the best Capricorn tattoo ideas we’ve seen on Instagram. From small, dainty, and easily hidden tattoos to designs that are more bold and adventurous, there’s inspiration here for everyone, from Capricorn constellation tattoos to more abstract motifs, to consider before they make their appointment.
