Another thing you should remember when getting a hand tattoo is that if you’re getting a design that extends over the fingers. So you have to be very precise and careful. That’s because the skin around the fingers are very delicate and it usually wears out so you might have to do some additional work in the future. The same problem also applies to the wrists because the skin around them moves a lot.

Since our hands are one of the smallest body parts, it is logical that the size of tattoo is limited. Therefore, hand tattoos for women are usually small, minimal or even tiny. Also, women hand tattoo designs tend to be more elegant than men hand tattoos because they represent beauty, delicacy, and fragility while men like to emphasize their strength or struggle.
