Small Tattoo Ideas and Designs for Women

If youre wondering why someone would choose a snowflake or a dog paw, check out these 47 cute and sexy small tattoo ideas for women. The best designs and their meanings. Short tattoo quotes, placement ideas and more.

The dreamcatcher is actually a very beautiful and meaningful symbol. In Native American cultures, dreamcatchers are filters that catch bad dreams in their web (much like a spider) and then let the good dreams filter through to you as you sleep. Celebrities with a Dreamcatcher Tattoo: Miley Cyrus and Kendall Jenner.

Angel wing tattoos can mean different things for different people. Sometimes they are there to remind the wearer of someone loved and lost, and at other times angel tattoos are there to guard the wearer and protect them. Celebrities with an Angel Wings Tattoo: Beyonce, Nicole Richie and Rita Ora.

The beautiful butterfly tattoo is an excellent symbol of growth and rebirth. Changing from an unattractive caterpillar (or an average land creature) into a beautiful butterfly (or a creature that can fly) is a symbol of grace and transformation. Celebrities with a Butterfly Tattoo: Drew Barrymore, Mariah Carey and Brandy.

Feather tattoos have many different meanings depending on the type of feather. Generally speaking, however, most feather tattoos are a symbol of freedom like a bird in flight. Feather tattoos can also be part of angelic symbolism and hold a much deeper and profound meaning for the wearer. Celebrities with a Feather Tattoo: Juliet Simms and Rita Ora.

Reach for the moon, even if you fail youll land among the starsthis is one of the most inspirational quotes ever written and the star is definitely a symbol of success. Star tattoos remind us to shine and be the best that we can. Celebrities with a Star Tattoo: Gisele Bundchen, Kate Hudson and Eva Longoria.

Many people arent aware that the lotus flower is a very significant symbol in many Eastern cultures. A lotus tattoo can mean many different things. Some of the most popular meanings include rebirth, perseverance over hardship, and it is sometimes even the symbolic equivalent of a womans sexuality. Celebrities with a Lotus Tattoo: Katy Perry, Malin Akerman and Ellie Goulding.

Paw print tattoos are becoming increasingly popular and each one has a different meaning, depending on the individual and the type of paw theyre wearing. Dog prints are generally a symbol of strength and pride. Think of a dog pack and the alpha male. Cat paws are often a cute symbol of playfulness, or even a symbol of cunning and wit depending on the size of the paw. Celebrities with a Paw Tattoo: Eve.

Dragonflies are more than pretty little insects hanging around the park; these creatures are full of deep meaning and inspiration. If youve ever looked closely at a dragonfly youll notice that they have an almost surreal quality to them, which is why they are often a symbol of deep thoughts and a higher subconscious.

Tattoos of hearts are often a symbol of love, but what exactly does that mean? For a four letter word, love is complex and has a different meaning for everyone. Heart tattoos can symbolize a persons love for someone else, a persons love for life and humanity, or even a persons hope for finding love. Its a complicated and very personal tattoo. Celebrities with a Heart Tattoo: Jennifer Aniston, Hilary Duff and Ariana Grande.

Tattoos have a long history, and usually, there are only two possible reactions to the idea of permanently marking your skin: People either love them or hate them.

Regardless how you feel about them, tattoos have been around for thousands of years. In fact, they were around in Ancient Egypt. Pregnant women in Ancient Egyptian times would sometimes tattoo a small web on their abdomen when they became pregnant. As the baby grew inside them, the web would stretch, symbolically protecting the child in the womb.

Even earlier than that, the famous ice-man had small dots strategically tattooed on his body around certain joints, which scientists now theorize were applied for therapeutic reasons.

The reasons for getting tattoos vary immensely. As described above, some tattoos are therapeutic or meant to be used as a protective amulet, but there are numerous motives for permanently marking your body. Common reasons people have for getting a tattoo include religion, marks of social status, lineage and tribal identification, and beauty.

Although today tattoos can be seen on practically every street corner, from young punk-rock kids to the middle-aged generation sporting ink from their youth, it hasnt always been that way.

Tribal communities would often use tattoos to adorn a warrior and display his feats and accomplishments. In some tribal societies, women tattooed themselves in order to appear more attractive to the opposite sex.

In America, however, tattoos havent always been that popular. Generally speaking, tattoos began appearing more commonly right After the American Revolutionary War. Sailors found that tattoos made an excellent identifying mark should they be imprisoned by the British, or should their bodies be found dead at sea. Polite society, however, did not adorn itself with permanent ink for many more years.

Now, tattoos are almost standard in our society. However, the reasons and meanings behind an individuals tattoos are still very personal. People get tattoos to wear the name of their loved ones, to show off their favorite sports team, and even to display something deep and meaningful only to that individual.

Its not just the men, either.

Women also proudly wear their ink for all the world to see. For women, however, the tattoos are often more subtle and symbolic. There are many animals and amulets that have a hidden meaning, and women wear those symbols close to their heart. Here are a few of the most common small tattoos on women, and what those tattoos mean.

Although tattoos have been around for thousands of years, the method of tattooing has indeed evolved quite a bit.

No matter how you feel about tattoos, one thing is certain: Theres no getting away from them. Tattoos are beautiful, remarkable, symbolic, and they are an artistic way of expressing yourself through symbolism and mystery. For anyone interested in tattoos, because theyre permanent, its highly recommended you do your research first, and think hard about it before you decide. Once youre ready, make sure the tattoo artist knows exactly what youre looking for. Tattoos are beautiful, and they can definitely be an ice-breaker at your next party. Enjoy the beauty of your ink, and wear it proudly!

Most of us arent mathematicians and, therefore, unless youre into quantum physics, the meaning of this tattoo is a very definite forever. Dont let that fool you in its simplicity, though. Forever is a very long time, and depending on your reason for getting this tattoo, that can mean everlasting love, everlasting life, or even everlasting rebirth. Celebrities with an Infinity Tattoo: Kristen Stewart, Asami Zdrenka and Taylor Schilling.

While a tattoo of the sun and moon might look kind of hippy and new agey, the symbolism is actually much more complex than that. The sun and moon tattoo symbolizes light and dark, good and bad, Yin and Yang and the balance of opposites. The wearer is definitely in touch with both of these aspects. Celebrities with a Sun and Moon Tattoo: Asami Zdrenka.

If you want to display your affection for someone, give them a rose. Did you know, however, that different colored roses have different meanings? Red roses are for love, yellow roses are for friendship, white is for remembrance, and pink is for appreciation and admiration. Rose tattoos, no matter what their color, are always a sign of beauty and elegance. Celebrities with a Rose Tattoo: Cher, Amber Rose and Cheryl Cole.

Have you ever watched a hummingbird in flight? Have you ever seen two hummingbirds spinning wildly, looking at each other in a sort of frantic, yet elegantly choreographed dance? If so, then you can already see why hummingbird tattoos are a symbol of happiness and love. Celebrities with a Hummingbird Tattoo: Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.

Anchor tattoos are often associated with the brawny arms of sailors; however, not all people sporting these tattoos live a life at sea. In fact, the anchor is a strong symbol of stability and many people wear it for their significant other, the anchor in their life. Celebrities with an Anchor Tattoo: Miley Cyrus, Lady Gaga and Kate Moss.

Crown tattoos are also becoming increasingly popular and the crown has always been a symbol of royalty. A crown tattoo is often worn by someone who not only thinks very highly of themselves (theres nothing wrong with having healthy self-esteem), but someone who places themselves above all others, as a ruler amongst men. Of course, its always wise to remember that heavy is the head that wears the crown. Celebrities with a Crown Tattoo: Katie Price and Lily Collins.

Although seahorses are real, theyre unique appearance and fascinating mating ritual are something that make them seem almost fantasy-like, which is why the seahorse is most often considered a symbol of creativity. Those who have a seahorse tattoo put a high importance on the more fantastical side of life, and the importance of creativity and imagination. However, this isnt a haphazard sort of creativity, seahorses are very regal creatures as well.

Snowflake tattoos have a deeper meaning than most people are aware of. If your first thought was that this person is a Frozen addict, then youre probably incorrect. Snowflakes are individual (no two are ever alike) and their delicate beauty can only really be seen once you look closely at them, giving them a very special symbolism. Snowflakes are also a symbol of purity and innocence. Celebrities with a Snowflake Tattoo: Kelly Clarkson and Amanda Beard.

Mandala tattoos can have different meanings for each individual, depending on the personal and religious views of the wearer. Mandalas are most often used in meditation as a way of connecting to the inner self and, therefore, these tattoos often symbolize higher consciousness or even one world consciousness.

The Sankofa tattoo is a highly intricate symbol full of meaning and tradition. This African design shows a bird arching its head backwards and retrieving an egg. There also seems to be an eye in the tail feathers and the general shape of a heart. Traditionally, this tattoo symbolizes taking from the past or going back to where you came from. Its driven in roots and tradition. Celebrities with a Sankofa Tattoo: Jessica Stroup and Janet Jackson.

Giraffes are some of the most beautiful creatures in the world. With their long and slender necks and their slow, fluid movements, it isnt difficult to see why giraffe tattoos are a symbol of grace and elegance. Few animals can match the giraffes beauty in motion.

Watercolor tattoos have become more and more popular in recent years. Its not hard to see why- these beautiful and unique tattoos look as if an artist took a paintbrush and painted a piece of art using the body as a canvas. These tattoos resemble brushstrokes that are present in a real watercolor painting, along with all the vivid and vibrant colors you can imagine.

Even though this style of tattoos looks like they were painted on, the technique for getting them done is still the same as with any regular tattoo. Yes, the tattoo gun is still very much in play.

The difference between watercolor tattoos and regular or traditional tattoos is that in watercolor tattoos there is generally an absence of black outlines, and usually of the color black (for most part). Traditional tattoos are usually outlined in black, and then filled in by black shading or other colors mixed with black ink. In watercolor tattoos colors are left unmixed, which is the reason why they appear lighter and more vibrant.

However, this does not mean that they will fade away and disappear. Like any other tattoo they are permanent and will require touch ups from time to time. Upkeep may need to be more frequent than with tattoos that have black ink in the mix (since black ink lasts longer than other colors), but like with any other tattoo this also depends on other factors at play: sun exposure, how well you take care of the tattoo and what condition your skin is in, in general.

In case you decide that you are unhappy and want to remove it, it is usually harder to do than with traditional tattoos due to the lack of black ink in the mix.

Watercolor tattoos can be of any image that can otherwise be presented with a traditional tattoo. The most important thing is that the tattoo artist is skilled, especially in doing freehand work without a lot of outlines and guidelines. This requires a certain level of talent, true artistry, same with any regular artist doing a watercolor painting on canvas.

With a little research on the design, some preparation and a good, talented tattoo artist, the outcome of this kind of tattoo should be nothing short of a stunning, wild and vivid masterpiece.

In Eastern cultures such as Chinese and Thai, the elephant is a symbol of strength and wisdom. Not only are religious or political leaders often depicted riding an elephant, but in Feng Shui tradition and elephant is a very beneficial symbol to have in your home. Of course, theres also the old saying that an elephant never forgets. Celebrities with an Elephant Tattoo: Brandy and Jessica Plummers.

A popular and feminine tattoo is the bow. Bows might be looked upon a trivial decoration piece, but there is often very beautiful symbolism behind this design. Have you ever heard of people tying a string around their finger for remembrance? Bow tattoos can certainly be worn as a symbol of remembrance, whether youre trying to remember a person loved and lost, or trying to remind yourself to keep certain qualities (such as faith and hope). Celebrities with a Bow Tattoo: Jessica Alba, Cher Lloyd and Lucy Hale.

Music is a universal language, and you dont have to be a musician to appreciate the symbolism in a treble clef or quarter note. Music is everywhere, it fills us with emotion, it guides us through life inspiring us and being a friend to us when were alone. Having a music symbol as a tattoo is not only a sign of musical appreciation; its also a symbol of that universal force that moves us all. Celebrities with a Music Symbol Tattoo: Lea Michelle, Rihanna and Cher Lloyd.

A key tattoo is a symbol of high importance. They say that when one door closes, another one opens and key tattoos are a visual reminder of that door opening. The key could represent happiness from sadness, hope from despair, and many other aspects. It could also be a symbol of what is the most important thing in the wearer’s life. For example, the key to life is happiness or the key to life is love.

Dolphins are one of the most playful, charming and intelligent mammals in the world. One of the reasons for getting a dolphin tattoo is to symbolize their joy and playfulness. They can also be a sign of sexuality, because dolphins are the only other mammals, besides humans, that have sex just for fun. They are also a very popular symbol of freedom and friendship. Celebrities with a Dolphin Tattoo: Jennifer Lopez.

If you want to get a tattoo without it being really obvious, a white ink tattoo may be your ticket to fame.

White ink tattoos are just that-tattoos done in white ink. The effect you get with this tattoo is either that of a scar (a pretty one) or, depending on the tattoo, of a pattern embedded on your skin. White ink tattoos are a good choice for someone who cant be too open about body art and needs to be able to conceal it easily, usually due to their workplace.

Although they are called white ink tattoos, sometimes some color is added to accommodate the skin tone of the client. These off-white colors are very subtle and range between ivory, pale mauve, sometimes subtle yellow shades, or a touch of pink. In cases where these colors are not added to the predominant white ink, the tattoo will have more of a scar effect. Also, the white ink used here is not the same kind of white ink that is used in traditional tattoos. Its thicker and of higher quality, making it specially designed to shine on its own.

They are considered to look best on pale, fair skinned people, but due to the possible subtle color variations may look gorgeous on others as well. In fact, more and more dark skinned (or tanned) people have been getting them in the recent years. Like with most tattoo choices it comes down to your preference and what you think will look good on your skin. Its not a bad idea to also discuss this with your tattoo artist.

There are some downsides to white ink tattoos, like for example, the possibility of some types of white ink turning yellow(ish). This is most common when the tattoo is frequently exposed to sunlight. Thats why the location for this type of tattoo also needs to be carefully chosen. Its probably not such a good idea to get it on your hand or any other place that isnt covered too often. No matter where you get the white ink tattoo, like any other kind, it will require touch ups from time to time.

As with any other type of tattoo, doing research and choosing the right tattoo artist, with the necessary skills is the most important thing! Since this isnt the most common type of tattoo that people get done, many tattoo artists may not have much experience in doing them. However, there are those who specialize in these kinds of tattoos. So before choosing one, ask to see their work portfolio-preferably through all the stages of healing so you get a better idea of the final outcome. Otherwise you could end up with a mess, and although the white ink tattoo is less visible than a traditional or watercolor one, its not INvisible.

NOTE: There is a special white ink tattoo called the UV tattoo or blacklight tattoo, due to the fact that it glows under ultraviolet light.

Celebs with white ink tattoos include Cara Delevingne, Kate Moss, Ellie Goulding, Sophia Bush, Rihanna.

Lady bugs are a sign of good luck. If a lady bug happens to land on you and grace you with its presence, youre going to have a lucky day indeed! In China, if a lady bug lands on you, it means that your true love will soon come to you. Lady bugs are also a sign of friendship because of their helpfulness. Celebrities with a Lady Bug Tattoo: Pixie Geldof, Catherine McNeil and Isabeli Fontana.

Frogs are an excellent symbol of intuition and observation. They are quick and they know when youre coming! In Native American, Aztec and Mayan cultures they are associated with purification. A frogs transition from aquatic to terrestrial is a very big symbol of change and transformation. In Asia, frogs are said to be a symbol of good luck, especially to travelers!

The first and most common symbol the owl represents is intelligence. Owls are also associated with the mysteries and magic of the shadows and the dark. Their great big eyes seeing through the night make them the perfect representative of clarification and intuition. Owls see past the dark and make great symbols of seekers of truth as well. Celebrities with a Owl Tattoo: Sara Paxton.

The dandelion is a special flower, and its distinctive look makes it irresistible for children. As it is mostly connected to them, it is considered a symbol of youth and joy. It can also represent the beauty of life and growth. When people blow the seeds from a dandelion, they make a wish, so, it can also be associated with wishes coming true. Celebrities with a Dandelion Tattoo: Jenna Ushkowitz.

Cherry tattoos are very symbolic, and they can represent sexuality and femininity. They are a symbol of a woman and her characteristics, fashion and beauty. The cherry has also been associated with kindness, innocence and virtue. So whichever meaning you hold dear, you cant go wrong with this small tattoo idea.

Each zodiac sign represents unique personality traits, so tattooing yours is one of the best ways to express yourself. Of course, this only works if astrology means something to you, and you believe in what your horoscope reveals about you. The tattoos of specific zodiac signs mostly represent astrological meanings connected to them. Celebrities with a Zodiac Sign Tattoo: Ritta Ora, Rihanna and Asami Zdrenka.

The swallow mates for life, so it is a symbol of love, care and loyalty to family and friends. The bird also represents freedom and hope. Over the centuries, it has been linked to health, wealth, loyalty, and the rigors of long-distance travel. A swallow tattoo for a sailor reflected his adventures and the hope of coming home safely. Celebrities with a Swallow Tattoo: Reese Witherspoon and Leighton Meester.

Another cute (and dare we say so cool?!) tattoo idea is a couples tattoo.

Obviously, for this one its a good idea if youre in a couple. But you dont really have to be. You can get one of these with a sibling, a parent, a best friend Really anyone who means the world to you, and with whom you may want to bond with even more, by getting a complementary tattoo. Here are just some tattoo ideas, or you can come up with an original one and make it completely your own.

This tattoo has the meaning you want to give it. It can be the city you were born in, and that will always stay in your heart and mind, but it can also be a dream destination you would like to spend the rest of your life in. It can be a place you met the love of your life or had something magical happen to you. Celebrities with a City Skyline Tattoo: Christina Perri.

The soft pink flowers are a symbol of spring and bloom. The Japanese believe cherry blossoms represent beauty and the fragility of our short life. They are considered sexual and dominating in Chinese culture, and the Buddhists link them to existing in the present and celebrating the time we have on earth.

A long time ago, the ocean was a scary place to be, and sailors would get compass tattoos as a beacon of hope. They hoped that it would serve as a good luck charm for finding a way home. It represents the guidance every person needs and a sense of direction for finding what we are looking for. A compass tattoo stands for protection and security.

Coordinates can be a great idea if you have a specific place that means a lot to you. It could be somewhere something special happened, like a birth of a child, a marriage, an important decisionwhatever you want it to be. You will always have the exact coordinates for that meaningful event or place you hold dear.

These tattoos remind us of the preciousness of life. Some people do them to commemorate someone special or to always be reminded that death is just a heartbeat away. You could also tattoo the heartbeat of a loved one to show them that your lives will always be connected and your love will last forever.

There will always be those who are unsure if they actually want to take the leap and get that tattoo. It can be for a number of reasons.

You may be a fan of how they look but not so much a fan of needles. Just the THOUGHT of a bunch of sharp, tiny, needle points piercing your skin at the speed of light makes you say Nuh-uh. No thanks. Buh-bye.

Another reason may be that you like how they look on others, but arent sure that you can pull it off. You feel like maybe you dont have the right attitude or the right look. Personally, I would scratch this one right away. Someone whom you dont expect to have a tattoo, with a pulled together professional look (or any other clean cut look), actually having one- equals the element of surprise. Bonus points in my book.

Tattoos are a commitment. They are for life. Its like youre getting married to something. And if you do actually get married, it may even outlast your real marriage. And getting it removed will probably hurt more than the potential divorce of your potential marriage! So, you should probably be pretty set on wanting it.

Just like you would date a guy before marrying him, or test drive a car before buying it, there is a way to try a tattoo on for size without making the huge lifelong commitment. At least until you decide that thats truly something you want.

The answer in this case may lie in temporary tattoos or henna tattoos. I wont include semi-permanent tattoos, because for now there is no clear agreement on the longevity of their semi-permanent status.

Temporary tattoos are not expensive, and some are actually pretty realistic looking. This may make you think of your childhood days, when you actually may have had contact with these for the last time, but dont fret, they also make them for adults. They can cost anywhere from a dollar to 20$ and you can easily order them online on tattly.com, tattyoo.com, faketattoos.com, etsy.com, strepik.com and others.

If you are considering a fingerprint tattoo, that means that there is a special someone who has marked your life and whom you always carry inside your heart. Its a tribute to someone that has truly touched you and you deeply love. You can have it in the shape of a heart, or get it as a wedding ring for you and your husband.

The four leaf clover is a potent symbol of luck or good fortune. One of the reasons for that is its extreme rarity, and finding a real four leaf clover is still a very rare occurrence and an enduring omen of good luck. According to Legend, the 4 leaves symbolize: hope, faith, love and luck.

An arrow indicates protection and defense, and two of them pointing in opposite directions are a symbol for war. Two crossed arrows are a symbol of friendship. An arrow tattoo symbolizes meaningful direction or finding the right path in life. If it is pulled back on the bow, it means lifes dragging us back with challenges, but we prevail.

Cat tattoos are worn by deeply spiritual people. Egyptians were devout cat worshippers and believed that the animal was an extension of the Moon goddess, Bastet. Cats are quite resourceful and tend to give us messages of change, flexibility of adaptability. They are creatures of mystery, creativity and psychic power.

The word diamond is Greek in origin and means invincible. No matter what you do to a diamond, it can’t be destroyed. A diamond in the rough is yet to become the priceless thing we all know and covet, so this type of tattoo can represent inner beauty. Some people also consider diamonds as a sign of power.

The Hamsa Hand represents an ancient Middle Eastern amulet which is a symbol for the Hand of God. It is thought to have the ability to ward off the evil eye and attract divine protection. The symbol serves to fight off negative energy and bring good fortune. Sometimes it is drawn with an eye which is also believed to fight bad luck.

There are many ways you could tattoo initials on your body that would make them look like a creative piece of art. The meaning that they would hide would be known only to you, be it a parent, a child, a best friend, someone you admire or a partner. You could even tattoo your own initials. Its up to you.

Trees are long-lasting and resilient so they are a sign of strength, survival, and resilience. Roots are the connection to the past or family. They show that the person is well grounded and strong. Leaves can stand for growth and rebirth or for things that fade away.

Christians believe that the three points represent the trinity: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit (or Holy Ghost). Pagans see it as a representation of the natural forces: earth, air, and water. On a more spiritual level, it can symbolize life, death, and rebirth. The circle that sometimes goes around it is a symbol of eternity.

When people get tattoos of this biblical tree, its usually drawn with its roots and branches intertwined in a circle. That unique way its represented symbolizes the unity with the universe. The tree of life symbolizes immortality, eternity, knowledge, wisdom, strength, protection, abundance, growth, forgiveness and salvation.

I am the master of my fate I am the captain of my soul

Dream as if youll live forever live as if youll die today

Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise

Those who fly solo have the strongest wings

Let your faith be bigger than your fears

Nothing is impossible with a willing heart

Where theres a will theres a way

Kites rise highest against the wind

If not us who If not now when?

Never a failure always a lesson

Dont forget to love yourself

Live by faith not by sight

Fortune favors the bold

With pain comes strength

This too shall pass

My boyfriend got his ears pierced and I got a tattoo here. The piercers were efficient, friendly, and clean! Leidi was one of them and I didn’t catch the other girl’s name. I got my tattoo done by Jude and they were excellent accommodating me. They drew up a version of an image I brought in and their style fit me perfectly. I am so happy with how it turned out! The Saniderm they had is also awesome and I wish I had it for my other tattoos I have had done in be past. I would definitely recommend coming here for piercings or tattoos!!

Worked with John on my latest tattoo. Very professional and works to make your idea a reality. I had him do a Steampunk Owl, he had a good design idea for it and made it look great.

Very unwelcoming. Came into get a little tattoo and he brushed me off because it wouldn’t make him enough money I guess. Went somewhere else for that because he seemed like a real jerk. But got a dermal piercing removed before asking about the tattoo. The piercer was amazing! I was nervous because they were in my cheeks , but it was soPainless

This is a review for Ryan he’s the guy that’s going to poke you with a needle. Very professional. He’s going to ease you into your piercing session. Place is clean! They have a lot of street cred…why I chose to go here…I’m just here to solidify that!Also great selection of metal 😉

Second time here and was even better than the first time. Staff is all awesome. Jude and Leydi are so sweet and great at what they do. Can’t wait until my next visit.

Kristie did my tattoo and I absolutely love it. She put her own spin on it and of course being a cat lady too she enjoyed doing the artwork. I plan on going back for more!

Got tattooed by Shayla. So hot, her art is awesome too! Pretty stoked to get back into her bed and get poked!

Greatness…Wifey and I got fresh ink by Dan…I saw his work online and reached out to Dan, I sent him a few pics for reference & he killed it!!!We are both very pleased with his work, he exceeded our expectations…looking forward to collaborating with him on future pieces…The shop is clean and staff very professional…Highly recommend…

Went in to get my nipples done and was SUPER nervous. Leydi made me feel super comfortable and did an amazing job. It was super clean. Will definitely be recommending this place to friends!

I have actually been to Skin Art a few times over the past decade. Each iteration I received incredibly friendly service, but my experience today takes the cake. I cannot speak highly enough of Ryan’s (body mod/piercing artist) expertise, professionalism, skill, patience, and artistry. He was confident, knowledgable, and answered all of my questions succinctly and thoroughly all while being incredibly friendly and not the least bit impatient about my pre-piercing nerves.The rest of the staff, while I had very limited dealings with them, were very friendly, and the shop was clean. The atmosphere of the shop is, generally speaking, very comfortable and professional.

if i could give them a 0 i would. i came in and the workers were totally rude and made jokes at me from the second i walked in that made me feel uncomfortable and overall just awkward. then i asked if i could get my navel re-pierced and the lady looked at me and very skeptically asked me to show her my stomach before even talking to me about it or taking me back to a private room. after having to lift up my shirt in a lobby full of people, she loudly said that she wouldn’t do it because i was “not anatomically built for a piercing and it would never work.” i calmly explained to her how i had come into the same place a year ago (with another piercer) and she had suspicions at first too (im very thin) but after taking me back and actually looking at the area, decided that it was completely safe to pierce. i had the piercing for a long time and after a while took it out because i didn’t like the way it looked, but then wanted it again and waited a while for it to heal before coming back. she somewhat laughed and said “i’m sure you did and i’m sure you were fine but listen if you didn’t like it the first time that’s not gonna change and your body isn’t made for a piercing it’s just gonna get infected immediately and expel it. i’m not doing it and i don’t want to be responsible for when it goes bad.” here’s the thing: i would’ve been a lot more okay with it if she had said it in a nice way or had taken me back to the secluded room where they do the piercings to tell me all of this, instead of in the middle of the lobby with people staring at me. i left the place in tears and am just very upset because i had heard good things about this place but i was immediately uncomfortable when i walked in and then humiliated and talked down to in front of a bunch of people in a lobby. maybe this is just an isolated incident but it was just not carried out in a way that was explained nicely and privately. would not recommend to anyone i know. i think they do a fine job overall but definitely think there’s better places to go.

I got my daith pierced by Ryan 2 days ago (this was my first inner ear piercing). He was professional and walked me through the process and piercing was over before I knew it. The shop was clean and I was greeted as soon as entered. Good place I will go back for my cartilage.

Was guided to this store by its sister shop, legacy arts tattoo’s. I was getting my first tattoo as well as my gf and her sister. The new tattoo artist, Christie, was extremely patient and helped us walk through the process of getting our tattoo’s. She could not have done the tattoos’ any better, we were extremely happy with it. It was a great experience and will be coming back for more tattoo work.

I stopped in a few times, randomly, to swap out my belly piercing. The guys here are great and always willing to help.

I mainly get work done by the owner Richard Garcia, but every single artist at this shop is a special kind of talented! I am very blessed to have found a shop that is overall amazing! Come here you won’t regret it!!

I was looking for the best place to get my nose pierced and I decided upon this place. I am so glad that I did!! Ryan was the best in explaining the process. This was my second time I got my nose pierced. The first time I had it done the piercer was the worst in giving me after care instructions. Ryan was quick and it was a lot less painful than the last time that I got it done. He was very thorough and provided detailed aftercare instructions. Very Professional. I HIGHLY recommend Skin Art Gallery for piercings.

I went here to get pierced tonight and after a previous bad experience at another parlor, I was a little worried. But the piercer was fantastic and while getting a snug, I didn’t feel any pain, just a pinch and it was all over. I’m already set to get my industrial redone here.

I have wanted to get my daith pierced I called and asked if their piercer was in and spoke to Ryan that said come on in. I showed up and only had a 10 minute wait Ryan was great he did a fantastic job talked me through the whole thing which I appreciate. He pulled the instruments out of the sterilizer in front of me. I would recommend you see Ryan if you want a good painless piercing.

Let me begin by saying that I had neither a tat nor a piercing done here. I did however go in, in search of a new stud for my nostril piercing. While Skin Art had some gorgeous clickers that may have worked, they couldn’t sell any because they said the jewelry belonged to their piercer who was on vacation. Doesn’t seem like anyway to run a business but at least they were polite and referred me to their sister location, Legacy Tattoo in Carrollton. Please read my review for that experience.

Big Mike did a great job on my latest tattoo. Staff was friendly and the place is clean. What more can you ask for in a tattoo shop?Went there on a Saturday night thinking I would just get a price quote, which was very reasonable considering it took two hours of ink time for my job. I noticed a lot of walk-ins, but everyone was greeted nicely and those who wanted to get work done were seen within an hour at most.

Tattoo training, online course – TattooTechniques.com

If you have a sense of drawing and you are hard-working, the materials I am offering on my site can help you to become a successful tattoo artist. My site is about:

This website contains the commonly used techniques of tattoos in full (I also use this techniques) with texts, images and videos. I offer my subscribers to the online tattoo course and training a chance to ask me in the form of a private forum.

I started this tattoo training, the tattoo course with the intention of helping those talented and dedicated people who would like to learn the craft of tattooing or improve their existing techniques.

Unfortunately, a lot of talented people are neglected because they do not know where to start, or simply the experts do not answer their questions.

To avoid misunderstanding, this website does not give drawing talent to anyone; you can just find here tricks and techniques for tattooing.

Tattoo equipment is just a kind of device, such as oil or pastel, therefore it is essential for you to have drawing skills, because everything is based on that. If you have these skills, you can learn the techniques.

I have been building this website for more than 3 years, and it contains nearly 160 videos, more than 700 images and a lot of texts. The tattoo training and course starts from the basic level and ends in colourful realism. It means that anybody who has not known anything about this profession so far, but is a talented aspirant can learn this profession and even an experienced colleague can improve their techniques.

I have held tattoo courses and seminars in many countries, but I have realized that in this way I can answer the questions more easily. Unfortunately, experts belonged to this profession usually keep inside their techniques, or they do not have time to teach students. Those experts holding courses in some cases would need courses as well, so a lot of people cannot go higher or further than a certain level.

The whole website is translated into 8 languages, but it is planned to increase this number as well as the continuous updating of the content.

As for the structure, the training material includes two main parts: the theory of tattooing and the practice of tattooing. The chapters and units are built on each other so to understand everything it is necessary to learn them in order from the beginning of the theory to the end of the practice. The theoretical material of the art of tattooing is based on the texts, and the images and the videos explain the theory. The practical material of tattooing is based on videos, the explanatory texts and images are situated separately, below them. So the website consists of theoretical and practical parts, closely built on each other. The price of the whole tattooing course is EUR 550, which includes all the parts, and after payment the website will be available for six months.

125 Inspiring Tattoo Ideas for Girls (Cute Designs 2018)

A recent study in the US surprising revealed that whilst 85% of people think that males are more likely to have tattoos, on the contrary, 59% of the tattooed population is made up of females. We now live in an age where tattoos are common place and its not longer considered a faux pas for a female to have tattoos showing. Tattoos are a great way of expressing yourself through body art and we have compiled 125 of our favourite tattoo ideas for girls.

Well start with this ghost design. In recent years there has been more of a movement towards smaller, minimalist style tattoos, rather than the traditional ink heavy ones. It also shows that girls are not limited to only getting girly tattoos. The cartoon ghost is a fun, whilst not been too spooky. Smaller tattoos are also becoming more popular nowadays as they are more affordable and often people can get a few smaller tattoos for the same cost as a bigger one. Not to mention they are also a lot easier to hide/conceal should you need to for work.

More to come.

One of the most popular places for girls to get tattoos is around the feet and ankles. It seems less of a commitment to a life long piece of art on you because its less noticeable and easily concealable. The feet are also not generally considered the most beautiful part of the body, so it can be a great way of making them look prettier and adding some art to them.

P.

Another common smaller tattoo for people to get is a simple letter. The letter P may symbolise the persons first name, someones name thats important to them or even the periodic symbol for Phosphorus. There are thousands of fonts to choose from and luckily with letters its easy to test them out on your computer before you pick which one will look best.

Besides been a beautiful tattoo aesthetically, the lotus is also a very popular design because it has a lot of meaning behind it. Traditionally the lotus symbolises divine beauty and purity and the unfolding of the leaves represents the growing of the soul as well as spiritual awakening.

Dreamcatcher Tattoo Ideas

The dreamcatcherhas a lot of historical and cultural meaning, and its origins are with American Indian tribes where the women would make it for their children to prevent them from having nightmares. They are very popular and can be placed in a lot of different places on the body. They also are great ones to adapt in to your own unique style.

Bow and arrow.

The bow and arrow is a popular tattoo for both men and women to get as is just the arrow on its own. The bow has many different meanings, including references to Cupids bow as well as shooting for the stars. Bows are also very adaptable to your own taste.

Queen of clubs.

Card symbols have long been popular symbols to get inked. The ace of spades is usually the most popular one to get but not far behind are the Queens. The queen of clubs symbolises a strong willed and positive person. Tattoos in between the fingers usually need to get redone every few years as they do fade due to the amount of rubbing that occurs there.

Lion.

The lion is another design that has been popular a very long time and remains so today. It represents someone who is loyal, strong willed and courageous. It is also the symbol of many sporting clubs and family emblems so these are some other reasons that people might get it.

Geometric tattoos are probably one of the most trending designs from the last couple of years. They look great, are timeless and not too expensive. Above is an example of a silver and black one on the forearm, which is a very popular spot for people to get tattoos now that theyre more socially acceptable and not necessarily restricted to areas that you need to cover up anymore.

Universal truth.

Above is a quote from famous rapper and musician Immortal Technique. The meaning of the quote is that even if a lot of people believe in something, it is not necessarily true.

Above is a great example of more alternative or hipster style sleeve tattoos. Usually this will involve picking a broad overall theme such as nature in the above one and is a great opportunity to keep adding to over a few tattoo sessions.

Pikachu.

Tattoo art has come a long way in the last decade or so and along with advancements in technology and style, there is a big movement towards alternative styles such as the above modern form with ink splatter effect and dripping paint.

Ankle birds.

Birds are a very versatile design. From very detailed eagles that cover peoples whole back to really simple seagulls like the ones above they all look great and can also hold a lot of meaning such as flight, spreading your wings and overcoming challenges in your life.

White ink.

Traditionally tattoos were always done in black or sometimes blue ink. Nowadays there are hundreds of different colours of ink and one of the surprisingly popular ones is white ink. Whilst usually reserved for shading, it also can work well on its own as a more subtle design such as the above quote.

Moons.

Similar to the previous geometric tattoo, the above design depicts the full cycle of the moon from crescent to full and back to crescent again.

Bunny moon.

Cute cartoon characters are a popular choice, particularly amongst girls who are looking for something pretty and nostalgic.

Crescent moon.

Here is another example of a very simple but elegant tattoo design of a crescent moon. Half crescent moons are particularly popular amongst females as they are a symbol of feminine power.

If youre a rabbit lover and are interested in a life like design then this is definitely the tattoo for you. The artist has managed to do a great job of creating a life like rabbit using just black ink. Black ink is always a safe option as it holds its colour the best of all the inks.

Unicorn.

Above you can see a number of different tattoos including an epic unicorn tattoo coming up from the thigh and on to the belly as well as a leopard print style design going over her shoulder.

Birds in a tree.

Birds are one of the most popular tattoos for girls to get. Above is a great silhouette style design of love birds in a tree branch. This is a great way of symbolising your love for one another and could even be one to get if you have recently got married or fallen in love and want a reminder of that.

Compass.

Compasses were traditionally tattooed on sailors and boating enthusiasts. They symbolise not only been at sea but also finding direction in your life or a particular journey you embarked on. Nowadays they are popular for aesthetic value as well as for people such as backpackers who have done a lot of traveling and want a compass design. Some will even have the compass face the direction of their home from where they have moved to so as to have a reminder of where they came from.

Cambodian.

Cambodia has a rich history and very ancient temples, it also has beautiful looking characters and words. As such it has become quite popular for people to get tattooed when they travel to Cambodia. It became even more in the last decade since Hollywood actress Angelina Jolie went under the gun with a Khmer style tattoo on her back and since then many have copied this style.

Finger tattoos.

Historically finger tattoos get a bit of a bad wrap. Typically they use to be reserved for bikers and gang members, they also were considered a bit of a faux pas if you wanted to get a respectable job. Nowadays however they are more common place and socially acceptable. The traditional finger tattoos were to get LOVE on one hand and then HATE across the other knuckles, this was a design that was popularized by movie characters. Generally people will get either two four letter words across their knuckles or one eight or ten letter word across both of their hands.

Ear bunny.

Here is another example of the popular rabbit design, this time with more of a cartoon style to it. Behind the ear is a very popular spot for females to get tattoos, they are usually a little bit smaller than this one but is still easy enough to cover up if you have longer hair.

Flowers.

Flowers are one of the most popular designs to get for both males and females. In particular roses and lotus flowers. Getting a flower design like the one above can work in both just black ink or you can even get it colored in later if youre wanting to change it up.

Half sleeve.

The half sleeve is generally the preferred style of arm tattoo at the moment. Unlike having a full sleeve it allows you to cover up your tattoos with a t-shirt should you need to for work or any other occasion. It also means that you dont have to tattoo your elbow which can be a difficult area to work with and often you are restricted to the types of styles that you can get inked there.

Dove.

Doves like the one above have a lot of different meanings. They are commonly used at weddings and are freed from cages as a symbol of love, peace and your new life beginning to take off together. They are a simple and timeless design that you definitely wont regret and can easily place anywhere on your body.

Love-heart.

The finger second in from the pinkie finger on the left hand is commonly known as the ring finger and is often reserved for a wedding ring as a sign that youre married. It is quite common place for modern couples to get a tattoo there in place of a ring as rings are very expensive especially to lose! A small, simple tattoo such as the love heart above looks beautiful and is also easy to cover up should you need to.

Knee design.

The above flowers on the knees are also lotus flowers, this time from a birds eye view. The fully opened flowering lotus is one of the most beautiful flowers and because its a birds eye view it creates a nice circular shape that works well with the shape of the knee.

Abstract hand.

Abstract art works such as the one above can work really well as tattoos. Be sure to see them sketched out first as they dont always convert well to a tattoo form. Often people will get artwork from their favorite albums or artists transformed in to workable designs.

Ear cross.

Crosses have always been a very popular design to get for both males and females. They are most commonly known to represent people of a Christian faith, but can also just be for its aesthetic nature. Theyre are also a lot of different variants of the cross and they all have different meanings and origins. Because of how simple a design they are they really can work anywhere on your body.

Henna style.

Henna style tattoos originate in India and are usually for women and place across the hand and fingers with lots of different line and dot work to create a beautiful pattern. Henna is a style of ink used and is not traditionally permanent but only lasts a couple of weeks however many people do get them permanently tattooed as well.

Back planets.

Tattoos that go directly down the spine can look really great and give you something to show off when you wear a backless top. Having the planets of the solar system lined up work really well for this area and whilst they may be hard for you to see, they will definitely impress others.

Black rose.

The rose is a complex flower and works beautifully as a tattoo design. It has a lot of different meanings, with the obvious one being delicate love and beauty. However the meaning can change depending on the color of the rose as well as openness of the flower. Some people will get roses to remember ones that are lost in their life and they can work very well in bunches together and work great in both color and black ink.

Mermaid.

Since the Disney movie The Little Mermaid, the mermaid form has been a popular style for both costumes and tattoos alike. Above you can see a cool example of an under the sea style theme on the forearm. Silhouetted styles are generally safe choices as the thicker line work makes them last longer and less intricate line work that can potentially be messed up or fade over time.

Finger designs.

Amazon.com: The Tattooist: Jason Behr, David Fane, Robbie …

I liked the premise of the story with the Tatt’s possessing a spirit that is killing the people receiving the tattoos from the lead (Jason Behr) character. The writing and execution of this story is what gets this slow moving and short on thrills movie in trouble. Behr’s character is less than believable as a tattoo artist for many reasons. Here is a few of the more obvious ones, He never uses a transfer to do his work? He puts his own design on the girls belly without consulting her on the design? He didn’t use vaseline and or bandage his work on most of his clients? We are never told why he is the “so called healer tattooist”

While I liked the Samoan influence on the story for the disgraced spirit entity the story only touched the surface on the culture and the western comtamination of their culture and their struggle to return to the ways of old. I just was not taken in by this story nor was I by Behr’s character or his actions. I only cared for the Samoan girl that he hooks up with. While I wasn’t surprised by their hooking up even thought what her cousin said about her and her religion and her dating a white guy. They (the writer) tried to make this a Romeo and Juliet kind of thing that you could see coming a mile away. The spirits characters story seemed a little rushed at the end of the movie to bring it all together in a neat little package.

There was not much of any kind of scary element to this movie nor was it evenly paced and my attention waned on a few occasions.

The movie has a fair amount of cursing with a couple of sex w/nudity scenes and some violence, but nothing is over the top. The acting ranges from so…so to good with the direction falling in the good category. As I have mentioned before the writing and execution is the bad guy that took a cool premise and made it into a so…so story. Would I watch this again? NO. Was it a waste of time to watch? Almost. 2 stars
