14 Sexy and Discreet Tattoo Ideas
But before we dive in, let’s talk about caring for your tattoos. You’re going to want to use a gentle cleanser after your tattoos have healed. For a while after, you might find your skin in the area that has been tattooed feels drier than usual, so using a body oil can help keep your skin happy.
1. Modern geometric tattoos
If you’re after something colorful and feminine but without the fuss of florals, these modern geometric tattoos that originated in Korea could be just what you’re looking for.
2. Tattoos with meaningful symbols
If something you hold dear can be captured within a symbol, a fine line tattoo could be the perfect option. These dainty tiny tattoos are perfect if you’re looking for a horoscope tattoo or a minimalist tattoo.
3. Convey your power with a tattoo
Tattoos of animals or insects such as scorpions and snakes are a great way to show your inner strength on the outside. Their placement can also be significant: get the tattoo somewhere only you and other special people get to see, or somewhere more visible, depending on who you want to share the concept with.
4. Pay tribute to someone you love
These fine line script tattoos have been trending for a few years now, and are a super cute way to honor someone you love.
5. Floral tattoos
Flowers are another super popular subject for people’s tattoos. Flowers are known for each having their own meaning. People often choose their birth month flower or the flowers associated with the months in which loved ones were born. Countries and states also often have flowers associated with them, so if you love traveling, then having a tattoo made up of the flowers that symbolize where you have been could be super meaningful.
6. Dainty wanderlust tattoos
On the topic of travel, if you’ve ever caught the wanderlust bug and been on some adventures, then we can’t think of a better travel souvenir than a tattoo like this one… Or get a commemorative tattoo after a memorable trip that is more specific to the destination.
7. Baroque tattoos
If you’re looking for something sexier, then a baroque-inspired jewelry tattoo could be more what you have in mind. These gorgeous pieces are usually designed to sit perfectly on your curves to look like draped body jewelry.
8. Thigh tattoos
