Fairy tattoos for Women and Girls - Ankle & Back Tattoos

Updated on April 10, 2012

Tattoos are becoming increasingly popular in today's world. Many people have tattoos, and more and more women are starting to get tattoos as well. There are many different styles of tattoos. Some people like to cover their entire bodies with tattoos, for them it is a work of art. Others like to have one simple tattoo that means something to them, perhaps an angel or a fairy, or anything else that has some kind of sentimental meaning.

Young girls are becoming more interested in tattoos as well, and a popular tattoo among this group is the fairy tattoo. Many parents are not comfortable with the idea of their child getting a tattoo, so they might opt for something that is removable. Henna artists paint fairy tattoos henna, which gradually fades, and there are press on tattoos that can be washed off with soap and water. Many gift stores sell temporary fair tattoos for girls, and they can be purchased online.

Many women also like fairy tattoos, and they like the idea of a large back fairy tattoo. Fairy tattoos on the back look lovely, and are always a head turner at places like the beach and in clubs. Fairy tattoos are also a natural choice for the arm, shoulder or ankle.

When choosing a tattoo, it is a good idea to know exactly what kind of tattoo you would like to have, especially if it is permanent. With temporary tattoos and henna, you can be a bit more flexible because they will come off eventually. Tattoo shops have books of their work, so an individual can check out other work they have done and possibly make a choice that way. There are also tattoo magazines and books that have different images of fairy and other tattoos from which to choose.

Tattoos vary in price, depending on the size and detail of the tattoo. Tattoos are custom drawn, from either an idea or a picture, and many times the individual seeking a tattoo will have a drawing that they created on their own. If that is the case, the tattoo artist will do their best to match the drawing. Permanent tattoos are applied with a needle that contains the ink. The tattooist first draws the outline and then colors it in. Some tattoos require more than one trip to the tattoo shop before they are completely finished.

      I really like the tattoos in the last photo. I like it when a person has two tattoos and when placed together, they match. Nice hub!
