Have you ever wanted to design your own tattoo, but just didn’t know where to start? Then I suggest you check out this video below which gives some great tips and ideas on where to start as well as outlining things to think about when creating your design.
A tribal ring tattoo is just like an armband tattoo or wrist band tattoo, and is a great idea if you want to have a permanent ring without having to actually wear one.
A tribal ring tattoo is generally a repeated pattern with beautiful line work that wraps around the finger. Tribal designs are great for this type of tattoo because the designs easily wrap around the finger and can include just the design or a name of a tribal group or image.
There are some great printable tattoo designs of tribal ring tattoos on the internet. Take a look around to get inspired.
Children’s temporary tattoos are a great way to entertain the kids. They are an extremely fun craft that all kids love.
There are many ways to get kids interested in temporary tattoos and that is by handing them out at parties, putting them in party bags, or just using them at home to entertain the kids. Some companies also offer fundraising packs which are really popular amongst schools and clubs.
There are 2 types of temporary tattoos, there are the ones that are already printed onto transfer paper that can be automatically applied using water. These temporary tattoos are easy to apply and remove and are very safe for children.
Then there are tattoo inks and stencils, where the a stencil of a design is put against the skin, and then an ink pen is applied to color in the stencil. The stencil is then removed leaving the tattoo design on the skin. The ink is water resistant and lasts up to 5 days. All these inks are very gentle and safe for children.
Ankle tattoos are a very popular spot for a tattoo amongst women, along with the wrist, hip, and shoulder blade. An ankle tattoo is a good place for a tattoo as it can be easily exposed or covered up with a quick change of clothing.
Women love to show off their ankles in summer, and a tattoo in this spot is quite sexy and mysterious.
Ankle tattoos for women come in a diverse range of designs, the most popular being butterflies, fairies, flowers and even kanji tattoos.
Just be aware that getting a tattoo in this spot can be quite painful as there is a lot of bone in that area. You may bleed a bit more after getting a tattoo on your ankle than on other areas of the body. After you get the tattoo, just be prepared to sit, relax and elevate your leg for quite a while. Don’t plan any long walks afterwards.
Don’t let the thought of pain stop you from getting an ankle tattoo, as they look amazing.
Shoulder tatoos are popular among both men and women. Women particularly seem to like this area for a tattoo because it adds a bit of mystery to a sexy area, but is not visible from the front or on most occasions and so is perfect if one wants to expose it as a fashion accessory, especially in summer and other conditions. Shoulder tattoos for women that are placed in this area range from small to large.
Many different tattoo designs work well in this area. Nautical stars, shooting stars, anchors and swallows, are all seen in shoulder tattoos. It’s also a great spot for memorial tattoos, as it’s wide and flat enough to get an image of a person’s face as well as memorial dates.
Women can use this spot for images like flowers, kanji, celestial themes and exotic pictures. The shoulder is hidden, so many women feel they can be adventurous with this area.
Marine tattoo designs are usually represented by a bulldog. The bulldog is actually the mascot of the marine corps, which became adopted as their mascot when the German soldiers they were fighting against referred to the marines as teufel hunden or “devil dogs”. This was attributed to their remarkable fighting ability.
If you feel connected in some way to the U.S Marines or even if you are just a fan of a bulldog, this could be the tattoo for you.
