Hip tattoos are a very common choice for women and there are literally thousands of designs available. Once you’ve chosen your design and found the right tattoo artist, getting a hip tattoo is a fairly simply process. Here are a few tips to help you on your quest for the perfect hip tattoo. Find a good design for placement on the hip. The actual hip area is fairly small, so you will be limited on what type of design you can choose unless you don’t mind it extending to other parts of your body. Small tattoos placed in between the hip bone and pelvis area or on the back of the hip just above the butt aren’t uncommon and run the gambit on design choice. Two, decide on placement. You can pick the front or back of the hip or the entire hip area. If you’re going for something small such as a heart, flower, butterfly or Kanji symbol, you may decide to put it in one of the more common areas as listed in Step 1. However, if you’re looking for something bigger and more intricate, then it may be placed over the entire hip region and then even extend either up onto the belly and rib cage, down onto the upper thigh and butt or both up and down the body. The last thing to consider before you get the hip tattoo is the size of the design. Is it something that is small and easily hid or will it cover the entire area. Once these considerations are noted then you are ready to get your prized hip tattoo.
Before getting a hip tattoo you should give some serious thought to the size, placement and care of your new design. The first thing you need to decide on is the size of the hip tattoo. Are you looking for something small like a heart or butterfly or do you want a larger design that covers the entire hip area like the cherry blossom tattoo in the picture. The next thing that you want to consider is your personal pain tolerance. Hip tattoos can be one of the more painful areas to get new ink. This is especially true if the design is going to run directly over your protruding hip bone. Anytime areas without much fat or muscle to cushion the procedure from the bone below are involved, the discomfort level increases. Next, decide on placement. You can pick the front or back of the hip or the entire hip and then some. It can even extend up the rib cage like this hip tattoo. The final thing that you should give serious thought to is the aftercare. It’s important to wear loose clothing during the healing process that won’t rub and cause irritation in the tattooed area. This can present a challenge for hip tattoos where your pants will be coming into direct contact with the area. Try to wear the least restrictive clothing you can, such as dresses, during the healing process. Or better yet, leave it completely uncovered.
