5 Common Tattoo Designs For Women
Body art is a great way for women to spice up their appearance to add something special to their look. While there are a whole host of tattoo designs for women, that are certain ones that are more popular than others. If you’re in the market for a new tattoo but you’re coming up dry and inspiration, here is a list of five common tattoo designs for women that may spark some ideas. This is not a definitive or exhaustive list but it does highlight some of the more popular tattoo designs that are prevalent.
A butterfly tattoo may seem stereotypical but it actually is a popular design with many women. The reasons for this are that not only do butterflies communicate beauty and femininity, but they are also very flexible in terms of appearance. A tattoo artist’s imagination can go wild when it comes to shape and color. Indeed, color is one of the prime motivators when it comes down to butterflies because the color palette associated with butterflies is all inclusive.
This type of tattoo design is popular among men and women because it is a very free verse type of tattoo. The scrolling lines of a tribal tattoo can radiate out every which way. The simplicity of design for a tribal tattoo enables anyone to design their own version.
3. Shooting stars
Shooting stars tattoos have been around for awhile but only recently have they really picked up in popularity. Stars are a pretty universal tattoo and are also aesthetically pleasing. There is a whole host of different interpretations for what each particular shooting star tattoo means but this enables you to tailor suit this tattoo design to your purposes. Often this type of tattoo is accompanied by some form of text or a quote.
Again, this type of tattoo may seem stereotypical but it actually quite popular, especially if the flower becomes highly stylized. The layout of this tattoo is akin to a tribal tattoo sometimes because the stem and leaves of a flower tattoo can be just as intricate and expansive. While the more common flower tattoo is a small representation of a rose or daisy, there are a growing number of stylized flower tattoos that have heavy scrollwork extending from the leaves and stem.
This type of tattoo is pretty self explanatory and is often highly personalized. Zodiac sign tattoos can be displayed anywhere and can range from classic interpretations to more modern designs. Zodiacs remain quite popular and are often linked or ringed with other celestial icons.
Again, this list of tattoo designs for women is not exhaustive. However, it is a handy tool to use when planning your next tattoo should inspiration run low. Remember to consult with a tattoo artist before getting inked. Make sure you properly care for your tattoo as well, especially since a number of these designs are intricate and can easily be distorted if not properly cared for.
