When it comes to sexy tattoos for women, nothing beats getting inked around the thigh/hip zone. These tattoos exude a sense of sexiness and leave others guessing when you wear a short pair of shorts, a crop top, or rock a bathing suit in the summer.

For those who aren’t scared of a little extra ink, there are tons of artists who are doing terrific things with hip tattoos, thigh tattoos and other tattoos around that area. These artists have transformed what was once a girly pastime into a femme fatale right of passage for women who are serious about their body art.
