Tattoos For Girls On Hand

As more and more workplaces begin to accept visible hand tattoos, the popularity of hand tattoos has skyrocketed. They can be big and bold, covering the entire backs or palms of the hand, or small and simple hiding on the side of a finger. A skilled tattoo artist can work miracles on the small canvas that is the hand or fingers – injecting color or a classic monochrome palette, creating an intricate and eye-catching design, and utilizing your preferred tattoo style, be it traditional, watercolor, or new school. If you have been thinking about getting a new tattoo, get some inspiration with some of our favorite hand tattoos for women.

You may be desperate for a tattoo on the hand, but there are still some workplaces that don’t approve of visible tattoos. Luckily there are a number of concealers and foundations that have been developed that can cover visible tattoos whilst you are at work, so you can have them on the show any other time. Furthermore, if you have some time off work, you could try out a henna hand tattoo. They usually last around 2 to 3 weeks and it may help you decide it a hand tattoo is definitely for you.

So, if you are thinking about taking the plunge with a hand tattoo, get in touch with your favorite tattoo artist and discuss designs and colors. As the hand tattoo is something that you will always see, make sure it is a design that you really love, don’t just pick the first design that you think is ‘kinda cute’. Even better, choose a design that has a personal meaning to you – but perhaps not a partner’s name, that rarely ends well.
