Belly Button Tattoos for Girls

Updated on December 22, 2011

A tattoo around the belly button is known as a belly button tattoo. These types of tattoo arts are very popular among teenage girls and young women. Your belly button tattoo can make a sexy style statement! Before inking a tattoo carefully choose a design suitable for you. This article will help you choosing the best belly button tattoo design for yourself.

Such a tattoo design can be shown off by wearing low-rise jeans or pants, bikinis, cropped tops or short shirts.

Belly button tattoos are generally small and cute circular and symmetrical designs.

Points to Remember

As you grow older with time, your belly may develop stretch marks due to pregnancy or weight gains and your belly button tattoo can become distorted. So don’t go for selecting a large design.

Choosing the design for your belly button tattoo is an important decision, but don’t forget to make sure that the tattoo artist is skilled. An unskilled artist can cause you more pain and can spoil your dream to ink an extraordinary belly button tattoo.


A belly button tattoo is perhaps one of the most difficult tattoos to ink both for you and your artist. The one and only reason for this is the belly button area is very sensitive without any supportive bones for the artist. So generally it’s a very painful process. At the same time a great belly button tattoo could be an asset for the rest of your life. That’s why I always prefer to ink a belly button tattoo during winter because your tattoo will heal in a few days in winter. So if a great belly button tattoo is your long cherished dream and you haven't done it yet, get your dream tattoo done right now!
