Deciding on a Hip Tattoo

What sort of images work well on hip tattoos? Well, since this is not a highly visible area, almost any image can be appropriate here. Intimate images, such as a lover’s name or initials, make for a perfect hip tat. Other popular images include flowers, especially roses, hearts, crosses, butterflies, and many other feminine items.

More Hip Tattoo Insp

Here are few ideas to inspire you.

  • Consider some scrolling vines and small flowers. The vines can flow across your own unique curves and make the most of the space available.
  • How about a little stardust? All you need are some tiny stars and dust trails swirled around them to make an understated yet sensual design.
  • For a design that is more masculine, think about inking one of the big cats, perhaps a tiger or a panther. The design can still be as small as you need it to be yet still look impressive.
  • This is also a great location for a kanji tattoo. Choose a kanji symbol that holds special meaning to you, but make sure the symbol you choose correctly portrays what it is supposed to represent.

Whatever you choose, take your time making your choice. Getting inked on your hip isn’t a walk in the park, but having a bad choice removed with laser treatments also isn’t much fun. Get the design right the first time.
