Throughout the United States, tattoos are rapidly increasing in popularity. In the past, they were often viewed as cultural taboos, worn only by bikers, rock stars, or members of the armed services. Today, however, these boundaries are diminishing. Women are choosing to receive tattoos in ever-increasing numbers.
The wonderful thing about tattoos is how much individuality you can demonstrate through them. For example, a tattoo doesn’t just have to be your name in plain script anymore. You can choose to embellish your initials with flowers or butterflies, or with your favorite colors. If you like elaborate cursive scripts, you can ask your tattoo artist to use one of these scripts. It’s sure to accent your femininity.
Different sizes of tattoos are available. For those who like the thought of getting a tattoo but fear the potential problems that could result, many options are still available. For example, a small tattoo on the back, foot, or stomach is attractive and yet invisible to employers and colleagues.
If you believe tattoos are not feminine, reconsider. Tiny tattoos can beautifully accent some of your most feminine features. Little butterflies or roses at the small of your back attract people’s eyes to the sensual curves formed by your back. Another especially sexy, appealing design is a sun or other emblem encircling your navel.
If you consider yourself to be a religious person, demonstrate the strength of your spiritual beliefs by being tattooed with a visible symbol of your faith. For example, women who follow the Christian faith may consider having a cross tattooed on their bodies in remembrance of the sacrifice made by Jesus. Other women who follow Asian religions may elect to tattoo their bodies with the yin-yang emblem of harmony and balance. Alternatively, women who follow the Jewish faith may contemplated a design involving the Star of David to remind them of their ancestral and cultural heritage.
Research carefully when you are ready to consider getting a tattoo. First and foremost, always think safety. Even small tattoos carry the risk of infection, so be careful to select a clean studio with all the requisite sanitary approvals. Even though most studios are completely safe, it is better to be sure than sorry.
Before your appointment for the tattoo, consult with the artist to ensure that he or she understands exactly what you want. Make your needs known as clearly as possible, and even considering bringing a drawing along to offer an example. This is your body, and your money, so make sure you get the services you are paying for.
In recent years the American tattoo culture has changed profoundly. The tattoo game isn’t only for men any more. Today, women are able to choose for themselves, and they are more frequently choosing small feminine tattoos. You can truly reflect your individuality without sacrificing your identity.
