If you have a short quote that changed how you see the world, this is a perfect moment to tattoo it on one of your fingers. You’ll end up with a meaningful and aesthetically pleasing design which is a win-win situation.

This is a great idea for all of the couples out there. If you want to show each other how committed you are, opt for a tattoo that proves your lives make sense only when you’re together.

5. Name of your SO

Here we have another idea for couples but what we love about this design is the fact that it can serve as a replacement for traditional wedding rings. Instead of spending tons of money on gold rings, get a tattoo of each other’s name on your ring fingers.

6. A simple letter

So, technically, this isn’t a word but it’s still a beautiful tattoo option that will fit onto your finger. You can get the first letter of your partner’s, friend’s, or even parent’s name and create an everlasting memory of the person who means a lot to you.

7. Lettering on the inside of the finger

The inside of the finger is a great spot for minimalistic tattoos. Choose the word, statement, or a saying that you love and ink it on your skin forever.

8. “Love you” tattoo

This is another adorable option that you can dedicate to anyone you want. It can be your sibling, your partner or you can even use it as proof of self-love. The possibilities are endless!

9. “Smile” tattoo

Here we have another cool idea that will serve as a reminder that you should always keep smiling. Life is too short to waste it on being grumpy. Rather enjoy every second of the day because you never know what tomorrow brings.

10. Minimalistic font

We’ve already mentioned the idea of getting your knuckles tattooed, but we had to add this one to the list as well because we love the font of the letters in the picture above. This design is meant to show you that you can keep your new word tattoo simple and feminine as long as you opt for the right font.

11. Motivational quotes

This tattoo includes not only one but three motivational quotes that will follow you everywhere you go because, guess what, they’re right on your fingers. We love the idea and think it’s a great option since we all need some motivation from time to time.

12. Handwritten note

Handwritten notes turned into tattoos are the cutest thing ever. So, if you have a special message you want to turn into a memory, this is a great way to do it.

13. Pinky promise


The word “promise” tattooed onto your pinky turns it into a pinky promise! This is such a fun take on the traditional designs that you may be tired of by now.

14. Letters that create a statement

You can easily get a single letter on the inside of your fingers and that way, create a meaningful tattoo that’s a bit different from the usual knuckle tattoos. We love this idea, especially because it’s easily personalized.

15. A touch of color

Who says that finger tattoos with words have to be all black? You can always add some color to your design, such as in the picture above. Choose the color palette you like and stick with it.

16. “Be by my side” tattoo
