Anyone who is planning on getting a tattoo has some things to think about, but women have some things to consider that men don’t. Women who want a feminine tattoo that continues to look good for the rest of their lives should give some extra consideration as to what they get and where they get it.
For women, tattoo location is something that requires a bit more thought than it does for men. With aging, and childbirth, women’s bodies go through more changes than the bodies of most men. With those changes, the skin in certain areas can be stretched, stretch-marked, or even sag in spots over the course of time. Because of this, no matter how attractive or feminine a tattoo may be, if it is placed in one of those areas where the skin may not provide a stable canvas for the art, the tattoo may simply draw attention to an area that a woman might prefer not to be noticed.
For this reason, I suggest that women choose locations where the skin is most likely to stay relatively firm over the course of one’s lifetime. Such areas include the back of the neck, upper back, on the shoulder blade area, on the lower back, and on the ankle. Other areas that have this trait include the forearms and upper arms, although these spots seem to be more popular for masculine rather than for feminine tattoos.
Some very popular ares for feminine tattoos are the area around the navel and on the breasts, but these locations are subject to some rather drastic changes in skin elasticity during preganancy, and to some extent, from normal aging. Even the lower abdominal and pubic area can be subject to change due to changes in the abdominal wall with pregancy and other weight gain. Needless to say, while tattoos in these areas may look great for now, they might not be such good choices in the long-run.
When deciding what to get, the big thing to remember is, whatever you do, DON’T get a tattoo of your lover’s name on your body! You may be head over heels in love now, but things can, and often do, change. Most of the time, a name tattoo is a huge mistake.
There are many designs of feminine tattoos, and deciding what to get can be a big challenge. You want to get something that you really like and that is consistent with your personality, because this thing is going to be with you for life. Of course, there are methods of tattoo removal, but they are not much fun and may not be 100% successful, so choose carefully. There are many galleries of tattoo art to give you ideas, with a few dedicated specifically to feminine tattoos, so take your time and find what you really want.
If you are looking for an image such as a Celtic knot, a flower, or some other picture, simply keep looking until you find something that you really like. If you are considering an Asian letter or some kind of symbol, I recommend that you research it fully to be sure you know what it means. A single reference or a tattoo artist may give you incorrect information, and so instead of a symbol that means “gentle waters”, it could very well mean “puddle of urine”. Just be sure you know what it is that you are having permanently imprinted on your body.
