Hip Tattoo Designs

Among tattoo designs, the popularity of hip tattoo designs is increasing with each passing day. Increasing number of women are getting themselves tattooed on the hips and if you are one of them, scroll down to know more.
Hip tattoos are a very common choice of tattoos for women. There is a large variety of tattoo designs that are suitable for inking on the hip. Since the hip is a relatively small area, you will have to choose a small design. If you want a big design, it will extend to other parts of the body and you will have to be ready for the same.

Hip tattoos can either be placed on the front or back of the hip. Most commonly, such tattoos are placed between the hip bone and the pelvis or on the back of the hip, on the lower back. Since the hip is a bony area, getting a tattoo there is often painful. Tattoos on the hip are a bigger hit with women as compared to men, probably because the hip is considered to be a sensuous body part in a woman. Among the tattoo areas in women, this area is considered to be one of the most attractive places to get tattooed. Now let's look at tattoo designs that girls may want to get on their hips.

Cute Tattoo Designs for the Hips

Since the area is not highly visible, you can opt for any design of your choice. The most appropriate design for the hip area are your lover's name or initials. There are other designs as well, which can be used. Let's see what they are.

Star Patterns
Some tiny stars with a dust trail, which swirls around the stars or around the waist, makes for a wonderful tattoo design to get on the hips. To some, it may seem to be an understated design but according to me, it makes for a sensual tattoo. If you do not want multiple stars, you can opt for a nautical star or a shooting star tattoo on your hips.

Flower Tattoo Designs
If you like vines or floral designs, then flower designs are the best option for you. You can have the vines flow across your curves and make the most of the available space of the hip area.
