Tattoos are a new trend all over the world and have now seen a rise in the female population. It is not such a taboo as it was a couple of decades ago. Many women prefer to get small tattoos, as they are most aesthetically inclined and give off a feminine vibe. Such tattoos are generally placed on the wrist area, as they are easy for people to see, or cover with clothes with long sleeves.
Tattoos were not done by women at the start of the 20th century. They were a typically masculine art and women who did do it were circus performers or rebels. As the decades passed, women took over this art form for themselves, especially celebrities.
The wrist is a rather painful part to get a tattoo on, as there is not much fat there and the needle can prick close to the nerves and tendons. Yet, many people choose to get a tattoo there as it is believed such tattoos can enhance one’s personality and beauty.
Women tend to get various aesthetic tattoos on their wrists such as birds, dreamcatchers, celestial bodies, or the names of their loved ones. It can have various meanings: to show their freedom and independence, portray their personality through their zodiac signs, or as a memory for someone they have lost but will never forget. Some tattoos, like a dreamcatcher or a wild animal like an eagle or a wolf, can show their inner fighting spirit and can show its historical and cultural meanings. Women also love to get their loved ones’ names tattooed, especially a significant other or their child, to make their intangible love concrete. Cartoon tattoos are a new fad too, and gives a sense of nostalgia and marking their advent into adulthood.
