Minimalist Tattoos for Women

The purpose of minimalism in artis to allow the viewer to experience the work more intensely without the distractions of composition’. A minimalist tattoo has the same effect, simple, uncluttered, with nothing to distract the viewer from its primary message. The minimalist tattoo designs below are very subtle and neat, yet bring the desired minimalist effect.

The minimalist tattoo genre neutralises to some degree the stereotype surrounds tattoos – think old garish designs the type worn by retired sailors – a great look on a sailor – but perhaps less suitable gracing the arm or a delicate guy or gal, it all depends on what you are trying to portray to the world and yourself. Minimalist tattoos are simple, stylish and elegant.

Tattoo artists from London to Tokyo are creating minimalist designs in ink from simple stencils of life objects to geometric shapes and delicate patterns. Taking a more subtle approach may be seen by some with bold bright modern designs as being non-committal, or maybe a first step into the world of ink, but these shapes and symbols need not have less substance or meaning to the individual.  Indeed one way of thinking about minimalist tattoos is that they display to the world only a small taste of the message and memories your design relates too, the rest of the meaning you keep for yourself and share with those you choose to.
