Inside: The sweetest handwriting tattoos ideas to honor the ones you love.
Tattoos contain multitudes. They can mean nothing at all and everything at once. It really just depends on the person getting them and the meaning that they personally assign to them.
I don’t think that every tattoo should have to hold meaning by any means. If you want to get a random flower because you think it’s beautiful, I love that. I also love seeing tattoos that do hold immense meaning. Tattoos are something that is going to be on your body forever, and if that permeant fixture makes you feel loved, empowered, and motivated… that’s even better.
Each of my tattoos has its own specific meaning. I have flowers for friends, my favorite children’s book to remind me never to grow up, and many more. But one that I am eager to add to my ever-growing list is a tattoo of my mother’s handwriting.
If you are also thinking about getting a handwriting tattoo, then you have clicked on the right article. Today, we are going to talk about them at length! I have also gathered some of the sweetest handwriting tattoos out there to help you find inspiration.
Handwriting Tattoo Cost
The best thing about handwriting tattoos is how cheap they are! Depending on how many words you get, your tattoo could cost anywhere from $50 to $150. This does vary based on artists, but this is a good ballpark to count on.
The fancier the writing, the more spendy it will cost. This is due to the fact that tattoo artists will typically charge you by the hour. So if the writing takes longer, it will cost you more. I always like to remind people that you should always tip your tattoo artist. Similarly to waitresses at a restaurant, you should be tipping about 20%.
If you are someone who plans on getting many tattoos by your artist, this is a great way to cultivate a good relationship with them. It also shows them how much you appreciate their work!
Do Handwriting tattoos hurt?
Yes, but the good news here is that they hurt LESS than fully shaded art tattoos. Since the line-work is simple, and there is less area to tattoo with these, the pain is considerably less than if you were to get a whole landscape done.
If you would like to limit your pain even more, then you can get yourself a bottle of numbing spray. Before your appointment, spray the area that you will be getting worked on. That area will be numb, so you won’t feel as much pain as you get your work done. Cool right? Science is awesome!
Okay, are you ready to be inspired? Let’s get into the best part of the article, the tattoo ideas!

I hope that this list has given you the clarity that you need to pick your own handwritten tattoo design. Who’s handwriting are you going to get? Maybe even your own?
I am choosing my mom because she is the most important person in my life. She is my life’s blood, my giver of life, and her words mean more to me than anyone else’s. I hope that your handwritten tattoo will also have such an important meaning behind it. But remember, if you just want to get one for the fun of it…that is completely valid too!
