Tattoos are so on-trend, but you want them to either have a special meaning or to be creative. It can be hard making the decision of what to get. After all, it’s going to be there for the rest of your life (unless you get it lasered), therefore, placement is also a big consideration. Just to help you out, we’ve put together the best tattoo ideas for women and some advice to guide you through the process.
1. Butterfly Tattoo
If you’re looking for inspiration for fresh new ink, you may want to consider a butterfly. Although butterfly tattoos have been popular for decades, there is a timelessness about them, and the wide variety of designs have ensured that each piece remains unique to the wearer. Butterflies can be delicate and beautiful, but they can also represent transformation, resilience, hope, and even love. There is also a feminine element to the design, which is why it is such a popular choice among women.
2. Henna Tattoo
Getting a tattoo is not a decision that should be made overnight because it is meant to be a piece that will be with you forever. Many people think long and hard before choosing a design that is meaningful to them, but if you are not ready for a long term commitment, you may want to consider something more temporary, like a henna tattoo. It is created using a plant-based dye, and these intricate pieces can be made using various shades, including red, orange, brown, and blue-black. Henna is popular at Indian weddings or festivals and is known as mehndi, but it is also traditional in Morocco and Egypt. Another pro to this form of tattooing is that the dye fades naturally over time.
3. Cute Little Tattoos
Who said your tattoo had to be huge? As long as you find an artist who specializes in small designs, you can easily get something rather detailed, in a much smaller, cuter version. Little dainty tattoos are always a good idea if you’re wanting a tattoo but aren’t looking for something too bold and noticeable.
4. Small tattoos
Small tattoos are generally kept quite conservative and simple. They don’t take more than ten to twenty minutes to get done depending on the style. Though just because it’s small, that doesn’t mean you can’t make it personal.
5. Flower Tattoos
Flower tattoos are very popular for women, especially wildflowers. This doesn’t mean you can’t think outside of the box and create your own ideas though. There are so many different types of flowers to choose from. You could get anything from the outline of lavender to a water lily sitting on a pad.
6. Simple Tattoos
Simple tattoos are normally something like a heart, a moon, the sun, or the basic outline of a flower or animal. They’re a great choice if you’re struggling to come up with a design. Usually, you can explain to your artist what you’re after and they’ll show you an option very quickly of something they may have already stenciled up.
7. Lettering Tattoos
Lettering tattoos are great if you have a famous quote that you love or a saying that really resonates with you. These tattoos usually look rather delicate depending on the style of font you go with.
8. Hand Tattoos
There is so much you can insinuate with hand tattoos, such as love, peace, and promises. They’re usually just an outline but you can make them as bold and detailed you like.
