Tattoo up the side is a great location for a unique tattoo.

feminine abdomen and side tattooHere is a stunning and very sexy, side tattoo for women.  Featuring a delicate cherry blossom branch, the tattoo shows off the abs perfectly.

If you’re thinking of getting a side tattoo, then think about trees and branches. By being tall, they are a natural fit for this location.

This cherry blossom is a particularly stunning tattoo design. First of all it’s very refined and elegant. There is a restraint in this design, but it’s still loose and flowing.

It’s not tight or overdone at all.

Though this is a black and white photo, you know there aren’t too many colours being used here. This could be monotone, as in the pic, or it could be 2 colour.

A gorgeous tattoo like this enhances you – it doesn’t hide you, or take attention from you. That’s a tough balancing act to accomplish, but do try! Just spend a bit more time when you are thinking about your tattoo.

Henna Tattoo on your Back

Henna tattoo on the backThis is a lovely henna tattoo on the back of this woman. This tattoo, featuring a  nice cascading wreath of flowers is especially striking in the one colour depiction, and the brown of this tattoo.

Henna is made from all natural plant substances and has been used since antiquity to dye skin, hair, fingernails, and other things. Henna tattoos are temporary, and a great way to test out your tattoo design.

First, download a design from one of your favourite tattoo sites, then instead of using permanent ink, use henna. Walk around with your tattoo – how do you feel? Does it bother you when people stare?
Do you like it after a few weeks

Tattoo regret is a common thing, so make sure to spend time with your tattoo before you go permanent. Tattoos made with real ink cannot be removed – they are yours for life.

NB. Don’t use black henna or neutral henna. These are not made from plants and can be bad for you.

Feminine arm and leg tattoos

Female arm and calf tattoosWhat we like about these feminine arm and leg tattoos are the big and bold designs.They are coming off incredibly beautifully here in these black and white photos.

What we don’t like are the big eyes on the leg tattoo…we hate that look, but we’ll let it pass, as it’s still more interesting than a sucky little butterfly tattoo.

The large graphic half -sleeve on the arm pairs very well with the tattoo on the calf. 2 faces is a great choice here.

But please, let’s stop with the anime eyes. Yuck.

A Very Original Back Tattoo.

back tattoo.


Here’s a most original back tattoo. This was done by cecelia at warlock tattoo and took a long time to finish.

It’s a very detailed tattoo that spans the upper back. The colouring and attention to detail are out of this world.

A very wonderful example for those who dare step out of the finky butterfly for women tattoos. Really, now, could you get any lamer? Please – get inspired by this wonderful back tattoo…and go out in style.

Shoulder tattoos for women


Here’s a look becoming more and more popular – shoulder tattoos for women. Not just one tattoo, but many tattoos, that go down the arm.

This is a hot location – it’s seductive, that’s for sure.

Now let’s talk about this gorgeous tattoo design. First of all we have a monochromatic pattern. The all black tattoos are striking, and even though they are all different, the colour unifies them.

The size of the tattoos is roughly the same. This keeps it from becoming a messy assortment.

The thick black outline of the tattoos keeps these from being dull, run of the mill tattoos. These are bold and graphic, and display an arty uniqueness.

Well done, on this shoulder tattoo. You can rate it below.
