Welcome to the female tattoo gallery. Here you can post pictures of your tattoos and check out the most popular female tattoos are.
One of the most frequently repeated reasons a tattoo artist hears from female clientèle when they come to get a tattoo is that they just broke up with their boyfriend. A lot of women visit a tattooist when their divorce papers are signed. The ratio of female to men in some studios can be as high as 60 percent women to 40 percent men.
It appears that women get tattoos when they've experienced some kind of major life change in a lot of cases. Those changes can range from the death of a loved one to marriage to childbirth or a new job. This is a practice that is thousands of years old amongst tribal cultures.
So what are the most popular tattoos for women? It seems anything floral, tribal designs across the lower back, fairies, unicorns, butterflies, and sunflowers are the go for female tattoos. Dolphins were the most popular tattoos for women, in around 2003 but every year demand for a particular tattoo design changes.
A lot of women are starting to request larger customized tattoos on more visible parts of their bodies, like arms and legs. The ankle and lower back are common places for female tattoos, but the stigma towards women with tattoos seems to be disappearing so women are getting larger and more prominent tattoos.
Women are also putting tattoos on their ankles and shoulders more so now than in the past, when women would get ink on their breasts or thighs. Part of the artist's job is to help the client select a design or location that will accentuate a certain part or shape of the body.
Women are generally more style conscious than men so are more discerning about what tattoo they want and where on their body they want it. Men mostly pick out a tattoo, choose a spot on their body and thats it.
According to many tattoo artists - women are much better than men when getting tattooed. Men like to think they are tough can withstand the pain. But when the needle hits their skin they pass out in the chair. Women, on the other hand anticipate the pain and have a higher tolerance.
