Aries (3/21 – 4/20): 2013 is a great year to try something new when it comes to body mod, and Uranus’s planetary influence will urge you to do just that. Whether you opt to finally take the plunge for that very first piercing or tattoo, or just go for the fun new mod you’ve been mulling over, make sure that you’re well stocked on aftercare products, because this year is bound to busy, busy, busy!
Taurus (4/21 – 5/21): The early months of 2013 may find you struggling with a lack of self-confidence, but don’t let that affect your simple and unique approach to style. Stock up on your favorite items in useful hues to take the stress out of coordinating accessories, and focus on proper skin care for all of your existing mods.
Gemini (5/22 – 6/21): The 2013 year is full of creative possibilities, and the dualities present within your personality can definitely be used to your advantage to provide new perspective. This year is a great time to work on designing your own tattoo, or even body art for others, so let the creative juices flow!
Cancer (6/22 – 7/22): The second half of 2013 is an extremely auspicious time to experiment with new piercings or body art, but make sure you don’t go overboard and end up regretting it later. To quell all those inventive urges, try experimenting with new jewelry types or styles in the piercings you already have, or liven up an existing tattoo with strategically placed dermals.
Leo (7/23 – 8/22): For those who are looking to break into the body mod industry as a piercer or tattooist, 2013 is the time to practice until perfect and hone your craft. For persons who are modified, this is the time to pioneer the new and unexpected, particular when there’s a spiritual element involved.
Virgo (8/23 – 9/23): Although 2013 may find you richer, controlling your spending by looking for great bargains is key to fashion success this year. And don’t be surprised if your modern classic style turns you into a bit of a superstar by year’s end.
Libra (9/24 – 10/23): 2013 will demand a focus on your career or vocation, but also a surge of creative ardor. Let your imagination transform your look, and don’t be afraid to try new things.
Scorpio (10/24 – 11/22): 2013 might make it easy to become depressed over a lack of forward momentum, but surrounding yourself with bright colors and happy scenery will do wonders for your mood. Traditional tattoo motifs like the anchor and sparrow may begin to hold new significance, so don’t be surprised if a very meaningful new tattoo finds its way into your future.
Sagittarius (11/23 – 12/21): You might feel tempted to overdo it when your energy is high, but don’t let exhaustion get the best of you by giving in. Any body art projects that are being worked on might seem like they’re taking forever, but slow and steady will definitely win the race.
Capricorn (12/22 – 1/20): As long as you allow yourself to go with the flow, 2013 will leave you feeling unstoppable, and later in the year a couples modification (or maybe a set of rings) could be in your future.
Aquarius (1/21 – 2/19): Your work might prevent you from getting a new highly visible tattoo or piercing this year, but the rewards of falling in line can turn out amazing, and everything will start to work out in the long term. If existing piercings are ever an issue, invest in some clear retainers and get set for greatness.
Pisces (2/20 – 3/20): 2013 will make you want to express yourself through art or fashion, and creativity will pay off big. Beware getting anyone’s name tattooed anywhere if the situation should arise though; their significance to your emotional life may wane.
