Choosing the right spot on your body for your tattoo can be tricky. If you don’t already have a great deal of tattoos, you may have racked your brain on the ideal design and proper place to stamp your permanent branding. You can cover up a tattoo on your waist, if necessary; it is visible when you strip down in a bathing suit and is in an area that can be added to later.
Animals and insects are popular choices for tattoos of any kind, so it would make it an easy transition for your waist tattoo. If you’re not set on any specific species, consider a dragon where the tail and body curves around your waist. The more details you want, such as scales and colors, the more expensive the tattoo usually is. You can also have dueling dragons or lions, where one is on either side of your waist as if they are rearing up to fight each other.
Tribal tattoos often feature repetitious designs of shapes and lines that connect together. Repeat these shapes and lines to fill the space. Your tattoo artist can design a chain-link style belt tattoo that will span your entire waist. Celtic-style tattoos are a series of knots and interwoven patterns. Choose the pattern that speaks to you, and tattoo that style in a wave-like pattern on your waist.
When you want a tattoo that really says something, there are variety of font styles to brand a message that means something to you. Choose a name, phrase or word you’re tied to and ink it in a small area of your waist. This is ideal if you have a big statement to make with a small voice. If you have a lucky number, a nickname or a signature phrase, the waist might be a perfect place to stamp it.
Symbols, like text, are an excellent decision when you don’t want to go all out with a character or decorative image and want something tailored to your personality. If you’re a fan of your zodiac sign, tattoo a clean, simple style of your zodiac symbol on your lower waist. Symbols are excellent peek-a-boo tattoos for low-rider jeans and swimwear.
