Getting a hip tattoo is primarily a female tattoo. There are very few men who will get a tattoo here unless it is part of a much larger tattoo design that just happens to extend down to this area. So many of the common female tattoo designs can be used here. Anything from a fairy to an angel to a butterfly can all work well in the area. Often women also like to get more traditionally done hip tattoos in this area. Such as a skull and crossbones, a dragon or even a nautical star. However, due to the placement of the tattoo in such a sensual place it no longer looks to many but interestingly enough very sexy. The juxtaposition of a manly hip tattoo in such a feminine area often works really well. Another consideration is many people like to get symmetrical tattoos in this area and might design a tattoo that worked well on both sides. For example a angel and a devil can work well with one on each side of the hip. Whatever design you choose you will want something that is pretty small and not to large. Since the hip is a small area it will fit better if the tattoo is smaller and therefore you will want it to be not overly intricate either. If you get a really small tattoo that is very intricate you are headed for an ink spot in the future that can become indiscernible.
If you’re going to get a hip tattoo then make sure that it’s the best design that you can get. After all, this is a pretty big decision. And the decision you make now will be with you for the rest of your life. So how should you decide what tattoo design to choose for your hip? Let me give you a few pointers so that you can end up with a hip tattoo as spectacular as the one in the picture. First, find a design that has meaning to you; your child’s name, a religious symbol, a design that inspires you. Maybe even a design that has significant symbolic meaning to you. This is your hip tattoo so you want it to be something unique and very special. Second, make some sketches. Even if you can’t draw very well, you can do a rough drawing or an outline of your idea and a good tattoo artist can turn it into a great tattoo. The last thing you need to do to make your hip tattoo a reality is find a good tattoo artist. Don’t skimp on this part of the process either. Talk to your friends, ask for references and ask to see examples of the artist work. If you follow these three steps you’ll end up with a hip tattoo that you can be proud of for many years to come.
