Female sleeve tattoos, to educate and inspire...

Updated on December 31, 2012

The popularity of women adorning sleeve tattoos has increased rapidly in the past few years. Nowadays, it isn't a shock to see a beautiful young woman walking by with an arm covered in heavy tattoo ink, and it seems that more and more women are choosing to become heavily tattooed each passing day.

Whether it be full colour ink or black and grey, a full sleeve reaching shoulder to wrist, or just half a sleeve, it seems that arm tattoos are rapidly becoming the most popular area of the body for women to adorn in tattoos. The images included within a sleeve tattoo are entirely up to the individual.. some will stick a set theme, such as old school traditional or portraits, whereas others will choose a more random approach and have a scattered style tattoo full of various images, script and quotes.


A popular and very feminine choice of sleeve tattoos for women, is that of flowers. As the model demonstrates in the photo, with colourful flowers reaching from shoulder to wrist. With roses being probably the most popular flower choice, and appearing in many old school, traditional and black and grey style tattoos.


Another popular tattoo choice is Japanese style, featuring images such as Koi, Geisha's, cherry blossoms and other Japanese style flowers and water waves. Each of these images compliment the curve of a female figure beautifully, and create a stunning tattoo, while keeping femininity priority.


As previously stated, the style of sleeve tattoo is entirely down to the individual and their own preferences. But I have noticed that the most popular feminine choices tend to include flowers, old school traditional, Japenese and that of pin-up girls and feminine strength. A firm favourite are Marilyn Monroe quotes, or portrait tattoos of Marilyn Monroe herself, as she was and still is an inspirational figure with words & slogans that live on to this day.
