I, Kinxi, will now pick my top 5 unusual locations for tattoos for women.
As a designer, I am always on the lookout for new, fresh and truly unique ideas and images. I have to say that I get down when I see women getting the same old same old butterfly and fairy tattoos (blech – fairies on an adult? It scares me, people. Scares me big time.)
But remember, tattoo designs aren’t the only thing you have to think about. Don’t forget about tattoo location.
Have you thought about these places on your body for your next tattoo?
The side is a great place for large tattoos. Think tall – a tattoo up the side will draw the eye upward. Here’s a stunning tree tattoo perfectly fitting this woman’s side. Doesn’t she look tall? And majestic?
The feet are traditionally tough to tattoo because of the wear and tear on your foot. But still, with care, they can be done and so you will see more and more foot tattoos abounding. Check out this playful sweet daisy chain tattoo.
Tattoos on the stomach were originally only worn by male prisoners. But no more. Women are claiming this territory for themselves. Check out these illustrations of stomach tattoo ideas for women.
If you don’t want to go with a permanent on your hands, try a temporary tattoo using henna. It is a natural dye that many women use traditionally to create beautiful ornate patterns on their hands before important ceremonies. Try a henna kit and invite your friends over for a henna hand tattoo party
Having wedding bands tattooed on your fingers is becoming more popular. The permanence of a tattoo lends itself perfectly for this use. Or, try show off your full hand of tattoos like this poker lover does. Once again, prone to blur and fade, but still, with care, a fun place to get a tattoo.
Hopefully this will help you get your creative juices flowing for your own unique tattoo designs.
