Tattoo Placements

When you’re someone who wants to attract attention and make a statement with everything you do or wear, you might be the perfect candidate for a hand tattoo. Dainty and dope hand tattoos for women seem to be all the rage these days, and we’re more than happy to rave about them.

What’s great about hand tattoos? Your hands are rarely covered which means your hand tattoos are almost always on display. You might be sporting a number of small, simple tattoos on the fingers or an elaborate work of art on the back of the hand. You might be flaunting a word tattoo on the wrist.

When you’re a proud parent of a hand tattoo, you’re on-trend. With a hand tattoo constantly within your own line of vision, you need to make sure you choose a style and design you absolutely love. Women are embracing the strategically placed ink more and more, and we’ve got you covered.

We’re bringing you a few of our favorite dainty and dope hand tattoos for women to get you started. Between teeny tiny bits of hand tattoo artwork and statement inkings on the wider parts of the arm, we’re sure that there’s a perfect hand tattoo out there waiting for you.

Starting with a visually striking collection of tattoos, we can’t get enough of bird tattoos. Bird tattoos represent freedom, transformation, and eagerness to live a spiritually free and happy life. Before you get a hand tattoo, consider what that tattoo would look like when placed next to other tattoos.

A butterfly tattoo represents personal growth, progress, and change and that’s why you might want to get one permanently etched onto your body. Whether you opt for a finger tattoo, a wrist tattoo, or even a palm tattoo, you’re guaranteed to attract attention and turn heads wherever you go.

Whenever you’re unsure of the style of the tattoo that would work best on the hand or the finger, you might want to consider getting an ornamental tattoo. Ornamental tattoos are meant to be purely decorative and they’re devoid of any meaning, but that’s what makes them a popular choice.

While we’re on the topic of ornamental tattoos, you might want to check out a couple of cute options you can choose from. Whether you opt for a smaller, simpler ornamental tattoo like the one we showed you beforehand or a bigger, bolder piece, we’re sure you’re going to adore it.

Snake tattoos aren’t reserved for men, especially when you’re a strong, confident, and creative woman who wants a tattoo that embodies her best qualities. Snake tattoos represent a personal path of transformation, a commitment to knowledge, or a connection to divine power.

Skull tattoos can be pretty scary, especially when they’re done for (and by) men. So, getting a skull tattoo on your hand might not be on top of your priority list. Skull tattoos represent the transience of life, and act as a reminder to live your life to the fullest and to accept death as a part of life.

7. A daring dragonfly tattoo

A dragonfly tattoo can carry a million different meanings, but that’s why you might notice a myriad of people around you sharing your love for them. When you’re planning on getting a dragonfly tattoo, know that these cute creatures represent energy, grace, peace, prosperity, maturity, purity, and harmony.

8. A mysterious UFO tattoo

We’re bombarding you with dope hand tattoos for women, aren’t we? Whether you’re on the lookout for something delicate and dainty or a daring work of art that demands attention and admiration, we’re sure that a tattoo of a UFO qualifies for that. What do you think?

With a flowy, floral tattoo, you’re going to get a million stares (and questions!) everywhere you go. When you’re thinking of getting a tattoo but you’re scared that you might end up with something rugged and robust, opt for a floral tattoo – you’re going to adore the permanent jewelry on your hand.

10. A tulip tattoo

If a floral tattoo that wraps around your wrist sounds like a lot of work (it is!), you might want to opt for something smaller and simpler – but equally impressive. It’s about time you got a tulip tattoo that represents new growth, new beginnings, and hope.

We’re the biggest fans of finger tattoos for women because they’re a great way to equip yourself with permanent jewelry. Whether you go for a tattoo of a ring or a bracelet or bejewel your hands with ornaments, dots, and silly symbols, you’re going to notice a world of difference.

12. A tiger tattoo

When we’re talking about dainty and ope hand tattoos for women, we’re shying away from tattoos that would typically be targeted at men – and that’s wrong. A tattoo of a tiger, for example, might be a masculine tattoo, but that’s not to say that you need to stick with a masculine style.

A tiger tattoo can be elegant, effortless, and chic, too.

13. An ornamental tattoo that stretches from the wrist to the fingers

We already professed our appreciation for ornamental tattoos, but we couldn’t pass on the opportunity to share another gem with you. An ornamental tattoo that stretches from the wrist to the fingers can embellish your hand and make you feel like a million dollars.

At the end of the day, that’s what matters!

14. A line tattoo that stretches from the finger to the rest of the body

We know the meaning of the word “dope,” and that’s why we suggest you consider getting a line tattoo that starts at the tip of your finger and stretches throughout your entire body. What better way to play with a style of tattoo that’s guaranteed to take the world by storm?

15. A tattoo of a scorpio

No, we’re not talking about the Zodiac sign (although you’re free to get a tattoo of your Zodiac sign, too!) Scorpio tattoos typically represent strength, power, and courage, and that’s why you might want to get a tattoo of the crawling creature on your hand. So, what are you waiting for?

16. A ribbon tattoo around the wrist

We promised you elegant and effortless tattoos and we didn’t disappoint! We suggest you consider getting a ribbon tattoo around your wrist to act as a permanent bracelet and represent strength, courage, and perseverance.

Ribbons are *also* pretty adorable and you might want to have one because of that, too.

17. A botanical tattoo

A tattoo of a flower, a leaf, or a plant can go a long way, especially when you’re someone who adores exploring the great outdoors. Actually, you’re probably going to appreciate a botanical tattoo even when you’re someone who spends most of the time at home, surrounded by plants.

18. A flower tattoo on the finger

A flower tattoo on the finger? Absolutely! When you’re exploring the possibility of getting a hand tattoo, don’t forget about your fingers. We’re obsessed with finger tattoos because they’re creative, cute, and quick – you can get one when you’re on a break or when you’re commuting to your office.

19. A fire tattoo on the finger

If flowers aren’t your thing, you might be interested in getting a fire tattoo. It’s a great way to offer a nod to the fiery side of your personality. A fire tattoo represents passion, love of life, and a strong desire to be whoever you are. After all, you’re uncontrollable and capable of devastating destruction.

20. A slew of sticker tattoos on the hand

We can’t forget about sticker tattoos! Sticker tattoos are a great way for you to experiment with different styles and symbols without committing to a bigger, bolder tattoo – especially when you’re a first-timer. Sticker tattoos are perfect for your hands and fingers because they’re small and sleek.

21. A word tattoo
