One thing people do not always realize when first learning about tribal tattoos is that tribal designs have a different look and feel to them. Some designs have swirling and looping elements to them while others have a more jagged appearance. Think about what look feels right to you and consider having a combination of styles to add more uniqueness. Also consider that tribal tattoos for men and women can look different from further away than they do close up.

Color is another element to consider when designing tribal tattoos for men and women.

Different colors symbolize different meanings so it is important to explore color meanings even if you are getting your tattoo for aesthetic reasons and not for meaning.

Tribal tattoos for men and women are a great option and can be placed almost anywhere on the body. However, you may opt to place your tribal tattoo on a different part of your body depending on your gender.

Stretch tattoos are great for putting on your back. Men may prefer to put their tribal tattoos on their upper back while women have the option of putting their tribal tattoos on their lower back in addition to their upper back.

This is also a good tattoo for men, and even women, who are interested in getting tattoos on their arms. Both men and women may choose to put their tribal tattoo on their fingers like a ring or even on the side of a finger or hand. Another great place for putting your tribal tattoo is on your foot. This works great for both men and women. Women may often decide to put their tattoo on their ankle although this is also an option for any men who are interested in ankle tattoos.

One thing to consider no matter what style of tattoo you choose to get is whether your daily routine requires that you cover up your tattoos at times. Times when you may want to temporarily cover up your tattoos can include while at work, at weddings, at professional networking events, etc.  Once you have selected your tattoo’s location, it will help you determine the size that you would like your tattoo to be.
