Feminine ribbon tattoos

There was a time where tattoos for men where the only ones that were socially acceptable, but, in the past years, as tattoos became widely recognised as an art form in the Western World, designs have become more and more diverse, ranging from classic unisex drawings to feminine and delicate tattoos. Contrary to common belief, women’s tattoos don’t look inappropriate. If you know what design to choose and the right area to place it, you get a personalised accessory that lasts for a lifetime. There are many designs that are considered to be popular among women, including flowers, jewellery and rosary beads and, of course, ribbons. Ribbons UK tattoos are inspired from the elegance and femininity of the actual accessories. Even though they might seem like a classic, even conventional choice, ribbon tattoos actually have a deep meaning and are quite versatile in terms of the designs that you can achieve with them.

 

Ribbons are a symbol of femininity, grace, beauty and a delicate personality. Most of the time, they are the perfect design for girls who don’t have a tattoo yet and want to start with something small, subtle and non-painful. Ribbons look great in black or any other colour and you can either have a small tattoo featuring just this small object or develop a larger, more intricate design that includes a ribbon with text or other elements. For example, you can create an interesting optical illusion by tattooing a bracelet made of ribbons, pearls and flowers on your wrist or ankle. If you like the idea of quotes tattoos, but you think that plain calligraphy doesn’t have any impact whatsoever, you can ask the tattoo artists to ink the text on a ribbon. Ideas are basically limitless and you don’t really have to be a baby doll to rock a ribbon tattoo. For example, you can incorporate ribbons in skull or cross tattoos without problems. Some women have thought of creative designs, such as having a ribbon corset tattooed on their back or ribbon-shaped stockings on their tights.

 

Since ribbons are an excellent graphic symbol of numerous awareness causes, they can be used for memorial tattoos. Many women who support breast cancer awareness campaigns choose to have the famous pink ribbon inked on their bodies and people whose female relatives have passed away because of breast cancer chose to commemorate them by tattooing the relative’s name next to a pink ribbon. In addition, ribbons can become appropriate tattoos for mothers. For example, if you have two children, you can ask the tattoo artists to ink their names on a long ribbon strand and you can take them with you everywhere you go. As you can see, ribbon tattoos are very versatile and they are associated with many deep meanings, which shows that there is more to them than meets the eye. No matter in what design you want to incorporate the ribbon, remember to take some time to think about it before going to a tattoo shop, just to make sure that you will not regret the decision later in life. Also, avoid getting ribbon tattoos that are too small, because, in time, most of the detail will be lost and you’ll be left with a small black blot on your skin.
