We love arrow tattoos. They’re cute, subtle, and quite chic. Plus, they’ve become hugely popular in recent years – they’re simplicity makes them the perfect choice for someone who’s getting inked for the first time. Sarah Hyland recently got a gorgeous one with her friends, which made us think a bit more about arrow tattoos and the meaning behind the design. Would an arrow tattoo be a good pick for you? Read on to find out.

arrow tattoo


There are a lot of symbolic meanings behind an arrow tattoo. In the Native American culture, for instance, the arrow is seen as a weapon of protection and hunting. It is believed to safeguard one’s family, as well as help them provide food to sustain life. Two crossed arrows signify friendship – that’s usually why friends opt for matching arrow tattoos, to highlight the profound bond between them. An arrow tattoo can also mean moving forward, despite the usual struggles that come along in life. A bow is seen as an obstacle, and the arrow being released signifies fighting to reach one’s goals and fulfill one’s life’s purpose. Despite the fact that the bow pulls the arrow back, the arrow then gets released and is free to move on and seek better things. You get the point.

Another meaning can be tied to the Zodiac, where a bow and arrow stand for the astrological sign of Sagittarius. An arrow can also be a symbol for love – does Cupid’s arrow ring a bell for anyone? Moreover, it can be a symbol for strength and power, or it can signify a sense of direction: you’re moving forward without looking back. It can mean that you’re ready to leave the past behind, let go of mistakes or grudges, and seek better opportunities in life. At the end of the day, it all comes down to the meaning you find in the symbol, since you will be the one wearing it day after day. Ideally, it should be associated with a positive feeling, so that every time you catch a glimpse of it you are reminded of how strong you are or about how you’re fighting to reach your goals.

You should also consider the placement of the arrow when choosing a certain design. If we’re talking about a small arrow, that’s the perfect size for your ankle, finger, or wrist. If you want a larger design, that can be inked on your shoulder, side, back, chest, leg, or arm. Along the spine is another popular spot for an arrow tattoo, but we feel like we should want you: that really hurts. The spine is actually one of the most painful places to get a tattoo – your spine is made up of 26 bones, and 24 of them go from your neck to the base of your back. That means that each tattoo you decide to get along them will hurt. If you’re not a big fan of pain, you might want to reconsider your tattoo placement.

What design to pick?

This of course comes down to your own preferences, but certain designs carry a deeper symbolic meaning you should be aware of before making a choice. A single arrow is one of the most widely uses arrow tattoo designs, and it can signify protection from negative forces. As we’ve already said, it can also mean that you want to move forward, despite what hardship life might throw in your direction. If you want to get inked with two arrows that cross each other, this is the perfect design for a matching tattoo to get with your best friend. Be aware though – if the arrow point away from each other, this usually signifies war. If you fancy such a design, it can maybe symbolize a war that’s going on within. Pretty deep stuff, don’t you agree?

A broken arrow, on the other hand, can symbolize pain, a broken path, or a love story gone bad. On the other hand, it can also symbolize making peace, since the arrows pointing away from each other depict war. As you can see, this is all very subjective, and that’s exactly why you’re the only one who can decide the personal meaning a certain arrow tattoo design has for you. Last but not least, a bundle of arrows can signify unity and strength – an arrow is much easier broken when it stands alone that when it’s in a bundle. Such a tattoo can stand for your love for your family, a group of friends, or another type of group you belong too. The number of arrows one chooses to be in the bundle is usually the number of people in said group.

An arrow can also be accompanied by other design elements, for a more sophisticated tattoo. An arrow passing through a heart is usually, as you might have already guessed, a symbol for a broken heart and pain in love. If the arrow passed through a diamond, on the other hand, that’s a symbol for courage and success. If you decide to get an arrow with a compass, this represents direction – maybe you’re now choosing a path in life, or you’ve decided to adopt a more Zen attitude and go whenever life takes you. Another popular design features a bow with an arrow ready to be shot; a symbol that you’re ready for the greatest things that lay in your future. Or you can choose from another multitude of design elements to accompany your arrow – flowers, a dreamcatcher, feathers, and so on, each with their own particular meaning.

As for the colors, you can either opt for a simple black arrow, which makes for a more subtle tattoo, or you can use color, especially if the arrow is among other design elements, which makes for a more eyecatching and vibrant design. Again, it all comes down to your personal preferences and the placement of the tattoo.

What to ask the tattoo artist

Getting a tattoo is a major decision, so you should ponder upon it for a while, especially if we’re talking about the first time you get inked. It’s good to have a few questions ready for the tattoo artist, so you are sure you’re making an informed choice. First off, ask them about their previous experience and qualifications. Their skill and expertise are the main factors that determine the quality of your body art, so you want to be positive you’re picking a professional. Also, ask them to show you their portfolio, so you can figure out if their style matches your needs. Besides, you should make sure they properly sterilize their tattoo equipment. Getting a tattoo in a shady place may save you some bucks, but this isn’t exactly something you should skimp on. After the tattoo is done, ask about aftercare; they will usually recommend products and healing techniques to keep your tattoo looking fresh and gorgeous for a longer time.

arrow tattoo 2

Getting a tattoo on the spine will hurt, but the pain is worth it if you end up with such a gorgeous design. Adds an air of mystery, don’t you agree?

arrow tattoo 3

Looking for direction in life? Moving forward? Whatever this arrow tattoo means, we’re big fans. It’s simple but oh so effective.

arrow tattoo 4

We love this sophisticated arrow tattoo, and the fact that the owner decided to keep it black gives it even more elegance somehow.

arrow tattoos


Simple, classy, and still gorgeous. Plus, the placement of the tattoo is particularly well-chosen here and works well with the length of the arrow.

arrow tattoo 6

Another simple, but wonderful piece of body art. If you choose this kind of placement, you will see your tattoo quite often, so make sure you pick a design you won’t get bored of or one that has a deep meaning for you.

arrow tattoo 7

As we’ve already said, a group of arrow usually signifies strength. And the design of this tattoo is quite powerful, so we’re not going to argue with the symbolism.

arrow tattoo 8

Why not use a quote to emphasize the power of the arrow? “Follow your heart” is a fitting one, especially if you’re the kind of person who enjoy following their own path instead of going the traditional route.

arrow tattoo 9

I’m always going forward, never looking back. Do you think this is what the owner of this tattoo had in mind when choosing this design? The placement of the body art seems to hint to that.

arrow tattoo 10

The amount of detail in this arrow tattoo is quite impressive. We’re big fans.

arrow tattoo 11

Another arrow placed on the foot, which, again, seems to symbolize moving forward. This one also has an interesting spiral attached which gives it a certain edge.

The crossing arrows which symbolize friendship make a special appearance. We’re guessing the owner values her friends a lot. And hopefully so do you.

arrow tattoo 13

Stunning design, awesome quote. And perfect to look at when you need just a bit of motivation to help you overcome an obstacle or reach a goal.

arrow tattoo 14

Another impressive and sophisticated design any tattoo artist would be proud of. We like the head of the arrow in particular.

arrow tattoo 15

Feathers can have several meanings since they’re associated with birds, creatures that possess the ability to fly. They usually signify freedom, triumph, liberty, or independence. It makes sense to use a feather as a design element to accompany your arrow tattoo.

arrow tattoo 16

An arrow facing down symbolizes peace in the Native American Indian culture. Do you think this is what the owner of the tattoo was going for? Either way, it looks amazing.

arrow tattoo 17

The arrows above are pretty similar, but they are all unique. Using geometry symbols can be a great way to personalize an arrow and make it more true to who you are. Whether you use squares, circles, lines, or hexagons, you will surely stand out from the crowd. You can ask a designer friend to help you come up with a one of a kind tattoo design – that way, you will be sure no one has a similar one. Or, you can play around with design programs to make your own from scratch. Most tattoo artists are also willing to come up with something for you as long as you’re clear about what you want. You just need to decide on what elements you want to include in the design, pick fonts if there are any quotes involved, and explain what you would like the end result to communicate to the world.

arrow tattoo 18

Double trouble! This is a great idea for a matching tattoo to get with a close friend or – why not – your significant other. Your bond will only grow stronger. Alternatively, you can get both tattoos on your arms and dazzle people when you cross them.

arrow tattoo 19

Great use of color here. The tattoo makes a splash, literally. And it still moves forward despite being broken in the middle, which can send an important inspirational message.

arrow tattoo 20

Looking for direction in life? Isn’t everyone? At the end of the day, none of us knows what they’re doing. We just cross our fingers and hope for the best.

arrow tattoo 21

A powerful tattoo that will help you remember who strong you are and how courageous you can be. You don’t scare easily. You’re ready to tackle everything that comes your way. The true meaning of a #Girlboss.

arrow tattoo 22

Lovely use of feather alongside an arrow tattoo. We especially appreciate the placement of the tattoo here, since the feathers seem to be flowing so natural.

arrow tattoo 23

We’re ready to bet that the owner of the tattoo chose this design to symbolize strength and masculinity. Just look at the size of the thing. It’s majestic.

arrow tattoo 24

The arrow might have encountered some obstacles along the way, but it’s still moving forward. Again, an awesome example of a matching tattoo you can get with your significant other, since you can use your initials. Fitting if you had to go through a lot to finally be together.

arrow tattoo 25

I am strong, I am invincible! Such a tiny tattoo, such a powerful meaning. Miley Cyrus has the habit of tattooing her fingers as well, so you can be sure your tattoo will be on fleek.

arrow tattoo 26

Another sophisticated design which makes great use of geometry symbols. We’re in awe.

arrow tattoo 27

Pain in love? Maybe waiting for someone to complete the heart? Maybe just emphasizing that one person is enough, they just need to fight a little to realize that? We don’t know what the owner had in mind when she opted for this tattoo, but we can help but appreciate the simple and elegant design.

arrow tattoo 28

Another bundle of arrows, each of them unique in their own way. Perfect if you want it to signify a certain group – like your family or your friends.

arrow tattoo 29

Three lovely arrows intersecting and some initials where they all come together. Maybe it signifies a special moment where three lives had come together. We can only speculate.

arrow tattoo 30

A broken arrow with some awesome design elements! The use of color here is perfect, and the 3D effect is surely eyecatching.

arrow tattoo 31

A detailed design and we’ve got arrows and feathers together again. Woop woop!

arrow tattoo 32

The arrow might be broken, but it’s still in perfect shape. Maybe the owner of the tattoo had to go through some sort of hardship and ended up victorious. We’re rooting for them.

arrow tattoo 33

That is one imposing arrow, we’ll give you that.

arrow tattoo 34

Delicate, with a hint of color and great details that help the tattoo stand out from the crowd. We’re going to want the name of the artist.

arrow tattoo 35

Impressive design, just the perfect size, and well-picked placement. A design that was surely made to impress. And we are.

arrow tattoo 36

A tattoo that encompasses many symbols, but the arrow still stands out from the crowd.

arrow tattoo 37

Snake tattoos are classic, and they usually symbolize birth, magic, or mystery. Whatever it is, we love the use of colors here. It definitely helps the design be more vibrant.

arrow tattoo 38

A big arrow for an even bigger and more impressive tattoo design. We totally approve.

arrow tattoo 39

Simple, elegant, conspicuous. The tail is especially stunning.

arrow tattoo 40

Gorgeous. Enough said.

arrow tattoo 41

A subtle, yet powerful piece of body art, perfect if you’re a tattoo novice.

arrow tattoo 43

Did you ever think of getting both the bow and the arrow? This design showcases how good these two elements work together.

arrow tattoo 44

If you’re bold enough, you can use the arrow as an element in a larger design, as shown above.

arrow tattoo 45

Another great example of how good two design elements can work together.

arrow tattoo

Enlisting the infinity symbol in your tattoo – cool or too common? We vote cool. We’re still in love with it.

Ready to get inked? Choose a tattoo artist and discuss your design idea with them. And whatever you do, never show take drugs or drink alcohol on the big day, thinking it will numb your pain. Most tattoo shops won’t tattoo you if you are inebriated, since it can cloud your judgement. Feel the pain and trusts us – it will be incredibly empowering. Good luck!

Top 47 Arrow Tattoo Ideas [2021 Inspiration Guide]

Arrows hold significant symbolic meaning while being strikingly effortless. An arrow is admirable for both experienced tattoo-lovers and newbies alike.

The symbolic meaning of an arrow tattoo depends largely on the number of arrows involved and the way that they are positioned.

For instance, single arrows represent protection against evil forces while a bundle of arrows symbolizes the strength of a group. Double arrows, on the other hand, are unparalleled in their ability to express both camaraderie and adversity. If the arrows form a cross, they will represent closeness, whereas if they are pointed to each other, they will indicate war.

The vast array of symbolic meaning can be further adapted to your own personal beliefs or life experiences, making them one of the 50+ best tattoo ideas. A single arrow passing through a diamond, for example, can represent you moving forward through a challenge in your life.

The far-reaching symbolic meaning of arrow tattoo is just one reason that they make a distinguished choice for a first-time tattoo. Additionally, the simplicity of the arrow design means that it usually does not require a lot of time to finish, giving newbies a taste of the tattoo experience without being overwhelming.

Above all, arrows are among the most timeless symbols, making them a classic way to show off your flair.

Small Arrow Tattoo Ideas

Amazing Mens Small Arrow Tattoo Designs On Inner Forearm

This is a fresh minimalist forearm tattoo. Like the unique aspect of each arrow, and how crisply they’ve been etched. The fletching (feathers) is quite eye catching with deft, black lines forming each pattern. Three arrow pieces are often used to symbolize direction and movement during important decisions and life changes.

Ankle Compass Small Arrow Guys Tattoos

A perfectly acceptable minimalist compass using arrows to signify direction. It’s the type of body art you can get at most studios for the shop minimum of $50-$80, and you don’t need a master on the gun. Fresh, black line picks and stick jobs like this can be handled by an apprentice.

Cool Small Arrow Tattoo Design Ideas For Males On Inner Forearm

This tattoo is an exceptional inner forearm piece that applies a mix of styles. The Native North American tribal approach is well packaged amongst geometric flourishes to help the traditional black and gray arrow stay balanced. The circles in particularly create a brilliant contrast for the piece by allowing it to get wider on the skin, and provides a good use of black line amongst the feather fetish shade work and fletching.

Creative Small Arrow Tattoos For Men On Side Of Outer Forearm

A nice, simple black line arrow tattoo cut through with cursive. The font choice for “life” works cleverly against the straight line arrow, whose placement is excellent on the outer part of the arm.

Finger Small Arrow Male Tattoos

A tiny finger tattoo using the compass to represent direction. Again, this small piece could be had for shop minimum or on a special flash day of some kind.

Forearm Small Arrow Tattoo Designs For Guys

Enjoy the heavy detail in this black and gray arrow tattoo. The internal shade work has been accomplished with great technique to give the arrowhead and shaft different textures. Also like the whispers of delicate fletching going along the shaft to further illustrate the arrow’s home made quality.

Gentleman With Small Arrow Tattoo On Fingers

It’s difficult to keep finger tattoos such as these crisp, as you can tell from the fuzzy thickness of ink in these digits. Over time they’ll lose clarity further and will likely look smudged or lose shape. Make sure to check with your artist on best techniques and styles to keep finger tattoos looking sharp over a long period.

Guys Small Arrow Tattoo Deisgns On Wrist

The use of a stylized arrowhead works brilliantly as a border for the mountain scene within. This small tattoo is greatly effective, mixing up fine, clear line work of the arrows and interior with the thicker, fuzzier black triangle. It’s a well developed and funky looking inner wrist piece.

Guys Small Arrow Tattoo Design Ideas On Side Of Forearm

Cool placement of arrow on the subject’s outside forearm. The artwork isn’t spectacular but is professionally delivered with the flickers of white highlights displaying the artist’s attention to detail.

Guys Tattoos With Small Arrow Design Outer Forearm

The use of white as a filler for the arrowheads work in this otherwise minimalist arrow tattoo. It’s such an unusual fill color that it stands out in this instance. Cool ink.

Guy With Small Arrow Tattoo Design Side Of Hand

Smart work to cover up the old arrow with a thicker, better held new version that has much more interesting fletching. The type of fade and fall out in the older piece often happens with edge of hand tattoos, so try to choose an image that would be simple enough to re-do or cover up.

Hand Small Arrow Tattoos Men

Love this neo traditional tattoo. It rocks the old, American traditional flint arrows, but throws in updated color work and a skin pouch to keep it current.The ram’s head – symbolically linked to determination and initiative must have been there first so the artist put the pouch in and created a cool effect.

Incredible Small Arrow Tattoos For Men Outer Arm

Enjoyable line work gives this arrow a more delicate feel despite the primitive style flint head. The fletching is tight and flows simply but it’s the artist choice to use fine needle curves and swirls that helps it become better body art both stylistically and in the tattoo’s use of space.

Small Arrow Tattoo FAQs

What does an arrow tattoo symbolize?

The arrow is one of the most versatile tattoo motifs out there. A range of meanings can be attached, whether it’s a solitary shaft or whole whole quiver, based on angle, direction, body placement or whether they’ve been etched alongside a bow or other weapons.

Some common representations of the single arrow include: love, direction, power, physical strength, and manhood. Interestingly, a bow set to fire an arrow is considered a symbol of conflict and tension, which changes to positive momentum if it becomes loosed.

An arrow point down means peace, while one facing left or right can ward off evil or act as protection. Two arrows facing each other equal war, and three arrow pieces are often used to symbolize direction and movement in relation to decisions and major life changes.
