We continue our ‘kick ass tattoo ideas’ series of articles with a tattoo style for the ladies: lace tattoos, the perfect choice for girls and women who want to express their femininity.

Season after season, lace features on catwalks from New York to Paris. White crochet lace rules in summer, while in winter, red and black lace party dresses get us into the Christmas spirit.

Its sense of femininity and timeless beauty are two of the qualities that made lace the highlight and sometimes the most expensive component of the garments worn by women for centuries.

With the explosion of tattoos and their entry into the mainstream culture, lace exceeded the boundaries of fashion and become a source of inspiration for those who are trying to express their sensuality, femininity and eroticism through ink.

Whether it’s for a garter, bow, or just a simple design, many tattoos look great in lace. Alongside its timeless quality ( an essential quality for a tattoo ), its undisputed elegance and its enriched versatility make lace designs perfect for a ‘feminine tattoo’.

If you want to add a sense of femininity to your tattoos, you should know that just as with black work and abstract tattoos, lace tattoos need a fine element of beautiful line work to really make them pop. Tattooers need a very steady hand to pull off such detailed designs so before you get inked with one, study artists’ portfolios.

We made a selection with 50 of the most beautiful lace tattoos (from our point of view , of course). Check it out and maybe you’ll find one to inspire you.
