Girl tattoos are expressive, often feminine or cute, and can accentuate the wearer's natural beauty. Years ago, women with tattoos were taboo. They were seen as being promiscuous or scandalous. Girl tattoos used to refer to tattoos that men would get that involved girls, like pinups. Today, the term "girl tattoos" means tattoos for women. There are many different types of tattoos that women like to get. Some styles and themes are more common than others. Some common tattoo designs are:
Butterfly: The butterfly symbolizes life and changes. It is also beautiful and delicate. The act of flying often symbolizes a freedom that the wearer would like to express.
Floral: Floral tattoos are very feminine as the flower is a symbol of beauty and fertility. It is also a symbol of life and growth as well as change. Flowers are a great element to use in a design as there are so many different kinds and colors, and they can be illustrated in many different ways. The rose is the most common of the flowers for tattoo. Other common flowers are hibiscus, lily of the valley, and sunflowers.
Stars: Star tattoos are another symbol that can symbolize many things. This can the birth of a child, the passing of a loved one, a goal achieved, etc. They can be placed anywhere on the body and are often part of a larger tattoo design.
Lettering: Lettering tattoos are common for both men and women, but women will often get a more feminine type. Lettering tattoo can of course represent literally anything. The text can say anything the wearer would like.
