We spend a lot of time finalizing the perfect artwork for our new tattoo. And then we spend some more time scratching our heads thinking where to place the tattoo. Doesn’t this happen to all of us? Yep, it does. The worst part is finding out that the artwork and tattoo placement area doesn’t sync, maybe it’s too elaborate or too tiny. To help solve this dilemma we’ve brought 15 tattoo placement ideas particularly for women (in no particular order).
- Behind the Ear Tattoos
Tattoos behind the ears are quite popular nowadays among men and women. If you ask us, behind the ear tattoos look better on women, sorry guys! Come ‘on these look so beautiful and feminine
- Inner Ear Tattoos
You might be surprised to find that these tattoos actually look quite pretty. The best part is you can add a little bit of bling with ear piercings. But yes, hiding them could be a wee bit of problem if you’ve got short hair. Long haired girls can have fun with this one!
- Collar Bone tattoos
This is one of our favourite areas for tattoos. Easy to flaunt and easy to hide! They look delicate and beautiful, thus perfect for women. And what’s even better is that collar bones are not that painful an area to get inked.
- Inner Wrist Tattoo
A common choice for tattoos among women, the sheer simplicity of the idea makes it such a classic. Tattoos on inner wrists are personal, so those who don’t want to flaunt their tattoos should definitely go for them.
- Neck tattoo
Neck tattoos are not for those who can’t flaunt their tattoos for certain reasons. These are meant for the bold girls!
- Lower Back
Women strutting down the beach with a hint of lower back tattoos, they make quite a statement, an elegant one at that. You can easily hide it during office hours or flaunt it with low waist trousers. These areas also rank among the moderate on the pain threshold level, so that’s good!
- Spine Tattoo
Tattoos that run along the spine have a mystifying and alluring appeal. A visible tattoo on a deep back dress makes for one attractive yet subtle statement. Once again, these tattoos are easy to hide if you don’t want them seen
- Ankle Tattoo
Ankle tattoos are most definitely feminine. You won’t find many men getting ankle tattoos. Subtle works look beautiful on ankles
- Shoulder Tattoos
A popular tattoo area, they look great both on men and women. Shoulder tattoos are classics, be it simple words or elaborate artworks; the end result always turns out fantastic. They are easily hidden as well, so perfect for office
- Thigh Tattoo
Thigh tattoos look great when you’re wearing shorts or skirts. Since the thigh area allows room for bigger arts, most women get elaborate artworks done. But subtle words have a certain charm to them. Try getting inked around the thighs rather than the usual side tattoo. You’ll love them
- Nape tattoos
Tattoos on the nape look great against a slightly messy up-do hair or short hair for that matter. Just make sure that the artwork is simple and understated to add a graceful appeal. Also, if you are worried about sporting tattoos in office, we’d recommend you rather not opt for them
- Outer arm tattoo
They look more edgy and bold. Words of inspiration or quotes are often written along the length of the arm
- Hip tattoo
Perhaps it is to do with the placement of the tattoo that hip tattoos are considered sexy by many. A lot of women prefer to get hip tattoos for its mysterious appeal
- Rib tattoos
Tattoos across the rib cage are distinctively feminine. Megan Fox has one and they look amazing. So yes, rib tattoos are meant to be slightly personal and bold artworks don’t look good here. We’d be a little worried of the pain level though; most women say these areas hurt a lot.
- Finger tattoos
Fingers are one of the best areas to get tattoos considering the amount of creativity it allows. You can have them run across the finger, on the inner sides to form a sentence or along the length of the finger. Subtle ones are usually preferred for finger rings, but there’s no saying you can’t do beautiful bold artworks.
So have you decided where to get inked yet?
