If you want a wrist tattoo, you have three basic options: a wraparound tattoo that encompasses your wrist, a single image inked on the inside of your wrist, or a word or phrase special to you. All can be sexy in different ways.
Wraparound tattoos are great ways to add flair and visual interest to your wrist. This works best with a flowing design that easily extends across your wrist and doubles back on itself. Some examples are flames, barbed wire, and vines. Even a sentence or phrase in Sanskrit or some other cursive font can form a band around your wrist.
Many people agree that a single image is the sexiest option, because a small image in a suggestive place like the sensitive inner wrist is very beautiful. Some examples of wrist designs are a star or a Kanji character with a special meaning. Many female celebrities opt for this type of tattoo, perhaps because of its suggestive appeal.
Word tattoos are the ultimate twist on the silicone "awareness" bracelet that became popular in the late 1990s. (Think of the 'Livestong' bracelets people wore for cancer awareness.) You can raise awareness for whatever cause or express any belief you've got on your wrist - you can literally wear your heart on your sleeve, if you like.
Words are fabulous wrist tattoos. Something short and sweet like "dream" or "breathe" written in cursive are popular choices for many women, and you can get as daring and suggestive as you want with the word. Maybe a phrase from your favorite novel or song, or the initials of a special person in your life, would look great on your wrist.
One advantage to wrist tattoos is that you've got two wrists - so why not use them? You could put two related words like "love" and "hate" on each wrist, or you could have a single phrase run from one wrist onto the other. For example, you could ink "What you see" on the right wrist and "is what you get" on the left. Holding your wrists out together makes a powerful statement. Whatever you want to say in life, it's possible to say it with wrist tattoos.
