Choosing Tattoo Designs For Women


Visitors: 322

For the most part, men and women need to take the same things into account when deciding on a tattoo design. For example, everyone needs to decide where their tattoo will go, what it will look like and whether or not it will be inked in color or black and white. However, there a few special things that women need to consider when deciding on a tattoo design.

First, since women tend to be smaller in build, they have less canvas area to work with when deciding on a tattoo design. Therefore, the overall size of the tattoo image they choose will need to be smaller. In addition, women will need to choose tattoos with fewer details, since these may become blended together if they're done in too small of an area. Women will need to keep lettering to a minimum, since smaller letters may be indistinguishable from each other if they aren't given enough space.

In addition, women's bodies tend to change differently than men's over time, and this should be taken into account when selecting a tattoo design. Whereas most men tend to put on weight in the mid-section, women will carry their additional weight in the hips and thighs. Sure, you may not plan on gaining weight, but it's far better to protect yourself from the possibility of a sagging tattoo than to get one now and hope for the best later on. Women also need to be careful of tattoos applied on or around the breasts, as these tattoos are also prone to change over time.

Women are also much more likely than men to think of tattoos as accessories, so they'll often consider tattoo colors in a different way. While most men will be content with a tattoo that looks good, some women will consider whether or not the tattoo colors complement their hair and skin tones and whether or not the color scheme will work with their existing wardrobe. This is not to say that women are more shallow or vain than men - especially when it comes to tattoos - only that they'll typically spend more time choosing a design and related color palette than men.
