Let’s face it. Tattoos have become the new chic fashion statement, and ladies are in the rush to join the bandwagon. From tattoo queens Angelina Jolie to Jessica Alba and Megan Fox to Kat Von D to runway models, celebrities have popularized this body art and has seeped into highstreet fashion. But make no mistake though, the stigma attached to tattoos still lurks on the sidelines. In movies, heavily tattooed actors are still cast as gang leaders and members, and there is a thin line between appearing stylishly fashionable with inked skin and looking like you just came straight out of a Russian prison.
All men or women, being created equal, not everyone can pull it off and emerge as hot as the famous celebrities who sport tattoos. When it comes to design, placement, size, and style, the choice is numerous, but the best choice is the one that best expresses your personality, matches your taste, and should I say your pain threshold? One of the most prominent placement is on the hands and fingers.
Whether you choose the more intricate and bold designs or the more discreet teeny-tiny micro ones hidden on the inner finger or in a spot where a ring can easily conceal it, hand tattoos for women could be the way to go.
The designs could vary from the intricately beautiful Henna patterns placed across the hand and fingers to little letters, flowers, hearts, sun rays, musical notes, a cross, and many other delicate design ink-spirations. Most ladies prefer the subtle designs that imply sweet somethings or carry a meaningful message. No doubt about it, tattoos are trendy, hot and cool nowadays but for some ladies, being inked goes beyond fashion. For something permanently inked on their delicate skin, the design must resonate with the wholeness of their spiritual, emotional, mental and physical self. Whether it is to express a newfound independence, self-awareness, and rebelliousness or to express a profound statement, a single tattoo design can also paint a thousand words.
