Many young girls are getting tattoos nowadays, so the presence of girly tattoo designs is quickly increasing. It used to be believed that tattoos were for guys, as a sign of masculinity, and that any tattoo girl was rebellious or bad behaving, but now it's become a trend to get inked young no matter your gender. Studies have proven that almost 10% of girls ages 18-25 have at least one tattoo. For this reason, the need for girly tattoos is rising fast.
Girly tattoo designs are fairly small in size, and can be grouped into categories based on their femininity. Popular groupings include flowers, hearts, cherries, animals, and stars. Of course, some of these categories also include masculine tattoos, but the difference is widely recognizable. Pink is general color in many female designs...something you wouldn't typically see in a man's design.
The location for a girl tattoo is typically on the small of the back, so many designs are sketched with this location in mind. They usually consist of a unique design of swirls and loops, and may include an image from some of the girly categories listed above. A butterfly, for example, is a common piece for the lower back. There has been a lot of controversy regarding this tattoo location, and some people know the tattoos located there as "tramp stamps." However, this is not a general consensus, nor is it stopping young women for getting tattoos here.
Many girls opt for girly tattoo designs, particularly for their first tattoo. This is because they are generally smaller than the more extreme images, so this can act as a trial run to experience the whole "getting a tattoo" scenario. Many of them can be used to express yourself, and look very good with lettering. If you wanted to add your name around stars or hearts, it can be done and look great.
Here is a top 10 of the tattoo designs that are popular amongst girls:
1.Butterfly tattoos: butterflies are perhaps the most popular subject for a girl tattoo.
2.Tribal tattoos: the new tribal tattoo is popular amongst women as well as men. Women usually have them on the lower back (some call it a tramp stamp).
3.Star and shooting star tattoos: stars are probably the oldest symbol, that's why they have a strong symbolic meaning. They are universal, can be simple and small or combined with other designs.
4.Flower tattoos: flowers have a natural beauty and are very feminine, it's not hard to understand why they are considered a girly tattoo design. Popular tattoo flowers are roses, daisies, lilies, sunflowers and cherry blossom. Each flower has a deeply rooted symbolic meaning.
5.Fairy tattoos: fairies are cute girls with magical powers, so it's not hard to see where the appeal of fairy tattoos comes from.
6.Heart tattoos: hearts are the symbol of love and romance and have been a popular design for tattoos since the early days.
7.Dragonfly tattoos: most women are not very fond of insects, but that's not the case with dragonflies, they are very well-liked as a tattoo design. They live in the same realm as butterflies and fairies.
8.Dolphin tattoos: dolphins are animals that speak to the imagination. They are mammals, just like us, and are very intelligent. Some go as far to say dolphins are more intelligent than humans.
9.Celtic tattoos: these are a kind of tribal tattoos. Popular designs are crosses, spirals and Celtic knots.
10.Zodiac tattoos: if you believe in astrology, having your zodiac sign tattooed is a good option.
Here's the top 10 of popular tattoo spots for women and girls:
1.Lower back: lower back female tattoos are very popular for several reasons. First, it's a very feminine and sexy spot to have a tattoo. It doesn't usually show, but can be ‘flashed’ as the girl bends over. Catching a glimpse of a lower back tattoo on a girl, you almost get the feeling that you’re seeing something you shouldn't be – very tantalizing!
Lately, lower back tattoos are called "tramp stamps" by some because so many women and girls have a tattoo there. Don't let this put you off though, if you think your lower back is the perfect place for your tattoo, then by all means, go ahead. Getting a lower back tattoo because it is fashionable is not a very good idea though.
2.The inside of the wrist: this is a good place for a tattoo, it can easily be covered up by wearing a watch or a bracelet.
3.Just above the ankle: the ankles are another popular tattoo place, very feminine. ,Also easy to cover up if you want to, by wearing socks, and not so problematic as foot tattoos. Ankle tattoos are usually small and can be very cute – just a nice accent for the ankle and foot.
4.The feet: foot tattoos are getting more and more popular these days. Keep in mind that tattoos on the feet need more care and don't last as long as tattoos on other places.
5.Back of the neck: very nice spot to have a tattoo in my opinion and one of the less painful places.
6.On the back, near the shoulder : also a popular spot. The left shoulder is traditionally the feminine side. Shoulder tattoos are a great accent when you’re wearing a tank top or halter top in the summer.
7.The upper arm: very common place to have a tattoo, for girls as well as men.
8.In the pubic area: just below the panty line, above the V, very sexy.
9.The hip: only shows when you're in your underwear or wearing a bikini.
10.The calves: a tattoo on the calves is usually a large one.
I personally think it's a good idea to have a tattoo on a place that you can cover up, especially when your work environment is kind of conservative. Places that are easy to hide include:
•Above the ankles
•On your feet
•The back of the shoulders
•Just below the panty line
•The inner wrist
Keep in mind when choosing a tattoo spot, that some areas of your body will stretch when you get older. This is especially the case after having children. Places sensitive to stretching are your stomach, your breasts and your bum.

Before i finish this post just a little word on the lower back tattoos for girls.
Tramp Stamp aka cum catcher
A tattoo on the lower back of a female. Called a cum catcher because the lower back is where a male ejaculates on a female after pulling out after doggy style sex. Refers to the belief that girls with lower back tattoos are promiscuous. hmmmm sounds amazing,
