This middle finger tattoo is a great example of heart finger tattoos. The tattoo artist has done an excellent job with the black ink work, which provides a great contrast to the red heart. Although done on the middle finger, you can opt to get it on any other finger as you like. You can choose to add other elements to this finger tattoo design, but sometimes it is best to keep it simple and not clutter the design as the area available is very small. A cleaner tattoo design fits perfectly in that space. This is a great tattoo design for anyone looking to get their own or their loved ones’ names inked as a finger word tattoo design.

Devnagari is another ancient script that forms the scripts of many major languages today, notably Hindi and Sanskrit. The symbols of this script are logographic and have very distinct and noticeable shapes. The script also includes dots and other shapes like dashes and colons. Bold and eye-catching, this script and its symbols are a great source of inspiration for ideas for a finger tattoo or finger word tattoo design. We love the fade effect that the tattoo artist has put in this finger tattoo design. Although this tattoo is in bold black, you can definitely try other colors for this finger tattoo design. Finger tattoos are great for both women and men, and this tattoo design is sure to catch your attention if you are looking for finger tattoo designs.

Simplicity is key, tattoo ideas or otherwise. This middle finger tattoo is a prime example of that. We don’t know if the person got their initial tattoo or otherwise (you know what we mean), or coincidentally enough both. But one thing is for sure, this finger tattoo looks absolutely gorgeous. A delicate tattoo design like this might make you think if finger tattoos fade easily or not. The reality is, yes they do. The skin around the finger is more fragile and does not have much fat around it. Also, finger tattoos are usually tiny and hence easier to erode. But with proper tattoo care, you can show the world that not all finger tattoos erode easily. You can definitely manage to make them last long enough and get your finger tattoo designs retouched if and when needed. This is a great subtle initial tattoo on the finger for anyone who is looking for an out-of-the-box finger tattoo design.

Cursive letters look really beautiful and are one of the first things that children learn when they start writing in English. The gracious lines and curves in a cursive letter are what make it look beautiful. Finger tattoo designs have to include cursive letters as they are very popular body art for fingers all over the world. This cursive L can be an initial for your name or any other word like life, love, or the name of your loved ones. Cursive tattoo shapes are very gracious, which is evident in this finger tattoo design. You can also consider getting a tattoo initial B on your ring finger or a tattoo initial S on your ring finger as well. A fine needle and an experienced tattoo artist are required so that the curves are drawn as gracefully and neatly as possible. This is a great tattoo design for anyone looking for tattoos for their fingers.

This December 22 tattoo on fingers is also another great example of alternatives to a finger tattoo design. It might be any day of significance that you want etched on your skin for your life. Meaningful finger tattoos like these add depth to your finger tattoo design. Small finger tattoos are definitely a safe option for anyone looking to get inked for the first time. The only downside is that finger tattoos are really painful. The pain is caused due to the negligible muscle or fat present in the finger and the machine working directly around the bones. If you can bear the pain and go for it, it will surely be a valuable effort to get your memorable day inked on your fingers.

Conclusion

Finger tattoos are a great way to express yourself and show off your personality. However, it is important to note that finger tattoos tend to hurt a little bit more than other placements because there is less muscle and fat tissue1. As with any other tattoo, finger tattoo cost depends on the design, placement and tattoo artist’s expertise. Typically, however, your finger tattoo could be around $50 to $10023. But even if the initial price is something you’re willing to drop, you have to remember that retouching costs add up. So in general, having such a small tattoo may require more maintenance than larger tattoos2. It is also important to note that finger tattoos are more prone to fading than other tattoos due to the constant use of hands and fingers1. Therefore, it is important to choose a reputable tattoo artist who can provide you with proper aftercare instructions.
