For any woman considering getting a tattoo design, this guide should be a required stop on your way to finding that perfect tattoo design that all women secretly desire. From tiny and subtle to over-the-top extravagant, this guide to all things ink will show you the best of what’s out there today. These women got the tattoo of their dreams. Now the only question is: Will you?

Pink roses

Behold, the most beautiful floral design of 2018. Or not, but ever since I first laid eyes upon these roses I haven’t been able to get them out of my mind. The location, the color, the composition, everything just works so well.

A watercolor stag

Koray has a fondness for these over-the-top watercolor stags with gorgeous flowers decorating their antlers. No one’s complaining of course, except for perhaps the competition. Koray has a watercolor style that’s one of the best you’ll ever see.

A sunset

An artist could practice their whole life and never capture a sky like this. The color of this fading sunset or sunrise is something that borders on the unbelievable. Saegeem’s landscape designs which feature the sky are the tip of the sword when it comes to current tattoo trends.

An arrow

Arrows have long been a popular design choice. But ever since a few of our favorite Korean artists started giving them soft and colorful feather ends I’ve been seeing the designs in a completely different light. This is a great example of what I’m talking about and the detail on that shaft is quite impressive.

A black and grey ink rose

Red roses are beautiful, but black and grey ink roses are simply divine. Black and grey ink pieces always have a more elegant vibe to them for me, and of course timeless nature that their colorful counterparts simply do no posses.

A beautiful neck piece

Tattoos have gotten so elegant these days that people no longer fear putting them on display 24/7. Okay, that’s not fair. Maybe I should say “Tattoos have gotten so elegant these days that many people who usually would have been to shy to get a tattoo in a high vis location are now getting them with little to no apprehension.”

An owl

Owls are fascinating creatures that people love to get as tattoo designs. I have seen a lot of owl tattoos in my days of scouring the web for new and interesting tattoo designs and can say with all confidence that this is definitely my favorite. Jeon absolutely killed it this time around and is quickly becoming a regularly featured artist on the site.

A thigh piece

Sometimes you discover a design, and even though you have no idea what’s going on, your eyes instantly get wider and you know that the next 30 seconds of your life are going to be highly entertaining. Okay, maybe that’s just something someone completely addicted to tattoos would think to herself but you get the point. This piece is amazing, and I need it on my body.

Floral armbands

I normally only like to post images where the design is the focal point, and while this example would still fall into that category it’s definitely teetering on the edge. However, this design was just too good to pass up—I felt I owed it to you.

A clover

Many people confuse four-leaf clovers with shamrocks. So here’s a short and sweet guide to set you straight. Four-leaf clovers are simply shamrocks with a fourth leaf. Yes, it’s as simple as that. And as far as four-leaf clover tattoos go, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better example than the one above.
