As we have said on occasion, some time ago the society we know had a rather distorted view of what it meant to mark your skin and have a tattoo.
Cliches and taboos about what this represented were quite varied, but all came to the same conclusion: Tattooing was not allowed.
Although this custom has been part of our culture since prehistoric times, at some point tattoos began to be associated with prisoners and criminals. For this reason, those who decided to get tattooed had to deal with a lot of looks that judged and stereotyped them.
While we cannot deny that both men and women were marked negatively by this distorted conception, as it always in this society, the issue was much greater when it was a woman with tattoos.
Because of this, the amount of people who decided to get a tattoo was quite small and this small number was made up of mostly men.
Things changed a couple of decades ago when more and more people became interested in tattoos. Magazines, television, and other media outlets began to show famous individuals, celebrities, and artists proudly wearing their tattoos.
and more and more women dared to create designs that are a symbol of their beauty and personality.
At present, the stigmas and stereotypes surrounding tattoos have been disappearing gradually and having a tattoo is a form of expression for people of all walks of life.
Thanks to the large number of designs and styles, it is safe to say that no woman should worry about not finding the tattoo that will make her feel good and that, far from them losing their delicacy and femininity, the tattoo enhances or defends other virtues and conditions such a their freedom, their strength, or energy.
With delicate lines and custom designs, each woman can choose a tattoo according to her own style and personality.
Although many women opt for small tattoos, any design is valid for both men and women. If you’re looking for inspiration, here is a small gallery with designs that women commonly choose although, as noted…
“The perfect tattoo for a woman is the one that she herself is proud to carry on her skin.“
