Small feminine tattoos
“Tattoo ideas for girls”
There is a constantly growing demand for designs of small feminine tattoos. Since the body art revolution in the late nineties, women have begun adorning themselves with more than just jewelry.
Design your own tattoo
Women have started to embrace the idea of permanent wearable art in the form of tattoos. There are some that have taken the idea to the extreme and inked their entire body. Most, however, have chosen modest tattoo designs to begin with.
While there isn't a set standard for girly tattoos, there is a list of the most popular choices. These small tattoo designs can be used by themselves as a tattoo or can be combined and/or embellished as desired. Here are the most common tattoo ideas for girls.
Favorite small tattoo designs
Flower/Rose – Flowers, with roses being one of the most common, are easily one of the most commonly tattooed designs on women. They are easily sized to fit anywhere and can be whatever color a person chooses. They are an excellent choice for first small feminine tattoos.
Insects – This includes butterflies, dragonflies, ladybugs and many other small bugs. Even (eek!) spiders. These are seen quite often in small places like feet, toes and behind ears. And these designs are also very versatile with color choices.
Hearts – Hearts are generally seen incorporated with other designs or with names inside. A child's name is seen most often, although there are some brave ladies who will get their spouse/partner's name permanently inked on their body.
Angels/Crosses – Religious tattoos can be sized to make them small tattoo designs and easy to place in a location where the person can reflect on it or make their belief system known to others.
Celestial Bodies – The sun, moon and especially stars are another frequently chosen group of designs for small feminine tattoos. They can be tattooed all together or individually, or any combination chosen and placed anywhere on the body.
Fantasy/Mythical Creatures – Fairies, leprechauns and even hobbits can be adorable girly tattoos. Generally, these tattoos are vibrantly colored and quite detailed, even the smaller versions.
Animals – The collection of animals seen in small tattoo designs is far too varied to list. The most popular are dolphins, birds, cats and dogs wild and domestic. It is also popular to get paw prints as they can be small or large and can be incorporated into tribal designs as well.
Children – Women often get tattoos dedicated to their children. These can be as simple as names and dates of birth or as complex as a portrait of the child's face. It is also common to see the babies foot or hand prints done in black ink with the name and date of birth for the child.
Zodiac Sign – With the Zodiac having simple glyphs along with elaborate designs to represent each sign, it is easy to create small tattoo designs with a persons star sign.
Lettering – There are many different lettering styles to choose from and tattoo ideas for girls can be created with a favorite phrase, quote or motto. Some choose a single word they feel sums up exactly what they wish the tattoo to represent.
Girly tattoos are small and delicate
With so many choices, finding small tattoo designs as a form of artistic expression can be a fun process. There are also some very interesting locations where these tattoo designs can be located, including around the belly button, behind the ear and even on the toes or feet.
