Girl Tattoos - Excellent and Best Tattoos For Girls

From the past years, it has been observed that girl tattoos have become quite popular. More and more female celebrates wearing their tattoos openly may have helped lift the social blockade for girls with tattoos. Nevertheless, getting a girl tattoo is a decision which has to be made carefully, especially for a girl or a young woman. A girl tattoo will stick with you forever or at least very many years and getting it removed still is complicated and painful.

Everything starts with deciding where on the body the girl tattoo should go. A very common place for girls to get their first tattoo is the lower back but shoulder blade, bum or arms are also quite popular. Consider that you will not stay young forever and that your skin will change with age and so might decide your tattoo. Before really getting into it, you might want to start with a place on your body that is easy to hide. Not every boss or customer is open, minded and liberal and might be offended by your tattoos.

At this point, Butterflies, Flowers, Dolphins, Stars and Fairies are quite popular girl tattoos. It is wise not to go with the fashion, but to pick a tattoo design which you will be comfortable with for a long period of time, even after the fashion dictates something else. Be especially careful when it comes to the name of your lover. He might be gone one day but the tattoo will stay with you and your next boyfriend might not want to look at it all the time.

Girl tattoos may be popular, but we still do not really know much about how it is going to be done, if it hurts, what kind of colors will be used, how the skin may react to it and so on. It will definitely be too late to think about all those questions when you are sitting in a tattoo studio and somebody is already working on your body. So the best thing to do is to gather as much information as you can before you take the final step. Ask other girls how they got their tattoos, how they chose the design, etc.

They may be able to recommend a tattoo studio as well. Go to different tattoo studios, ask all the questions you may have, let them show you example tattoos they did.

Jill Walks On with Her Ink

I spotted Jill in the beginning of November sitting in the New Jersey Transit waiting area at Penn Station.

She has eight tattoos, five are symbols and three are word-based, including this one on her forearm:

The one she shared with us is based on the song lyrics of U2 and their song "Walk On".

The letter G and the date refer to her grandmother and the day she died, March 2, 2010.

The lyrics are "And I know it aches/And your heart it breaks/You can only take so much/Walk on".

Jill said that listening to music got her through a difficult time and this song, in particular, carried and sustained her through the mourning process.

Coincidentally, March 2 marked the anniversary of her meeting the band in 2009.

She chose an Edwardian script and the tattoo was inked by Mike at Fat Kat Tattoos in Keyport, New Jersey.

Work from Fat Kat has appeared previously on Tattoosday here.

Thanks to Jill for sharing this special tattoo with us here on the site!

A little extra treat, video of U2's "Walk On":

Amanda's Irises (and a Quote)

This start-of-the-year post is courtesy of Amanda, who I met at the end of October in the Borders at Columbus Circle.

It was her sleeve of irises that first captured my attention:

These are inspired by the work of Vincent van Gogh, perhaps this one:

The tattoo was done by Dennis Halbritter when he was at Incognito Tattoo in Pasadena, California. He has since moved to High Voltage Tattoo, Kat Von D's shop on L.A. Ink.

Dennis also inked this on Amanda's inner right bicep:

This quote "IO FU QUELLO CHE VOI SIETE E QUEL CH'IO SON VOI SARETE" is taken from an Italian fresco credited to Masaccio. This is the artwork in question:

The Holy Trinity, with the Virgin and Saint John and donors, in Florence
If you look at the bottom of the fresco, right above the skeleton is the phrase Amanda has inscribed on her arm.

The phrase is translated as "I once was what you are and what I am you also will be".
These words remind her of her own mortality.

Thanks to Amanda for sharing these lovely tattoos with us here on Tattoosday!
