Feminine tattoo designs are a lot more intricate than men's tattoo designs; there is a lot more detail to fit into something which will be smaller. Choosing the right design is a very important process and shouldn't be rushed, I took over a year before I found the right design for me. The odds are very slim that if you rush finding a tattoo design that you will still like it in 5 years, make sure that you have picked the right one, if the right one isn't out there, either adapt one that you like or have one designed just for you.
Have you given any thought to the position of your tattoo? Even though feminine lower back tattoos are the most popular at the moment, they are followed closely by breast and butt tattoos so if you are a little bit shy you may want to have a look in your area for a female tattooist, although the male tattooists have probably tattooed just about every part of a woman's body.
There are so many feminine tattoo designs that you might feel a little over whelmed by them all, the best way to choose is to already have an idea of what you want and search through those, otherwise you may end up with a spur of the moment design which you will hate in 12 months.
Choosing a feminine tattoo should be a process, design, shape, size, location and color.
- The design has to be something that you can live with for many years to come.
- The shape of the tattoo should reflect your overall body shape, although this may change when you become older more and more women are taking care of their bodies.
- The tattoo size is an obvious one, you don't want it to look out of place and have people staring for all of the wrong reasons.
- The location of feminine tattoos is really down to the individual, I had my first tattoo on my thigh because I was told that it would hurt less on fleshy parts of the body, I had my next one on my back which I can cover at work and show off when I'm out.
- Coloring is something which gets overlooked as part of the process, if you choose a tribal tattoo in black and grey it bay look very bold, if you add a little color, a splash of blue and some green on the branches it will look a lot more colorful but it will also tone the whole tattoo down a bit so it doesn't look so bold.
Finding the right feminine tattoo designs is only half the battle, you need a hygienic studio and a tattooist with a reputation that you can trust, this can be done easily by word of mouth and recommendations from friends. A tattoo is an open wound for a short period and the risk of infection is high, follow any and all instructions for aftercare and keep the area clean and dry, also avoid sun bathing for at least 8 weeks.
