Inner wrist tattoo ideas
The inner wrist is a popular place for a tattoo. (fist over wrist tattoo of Greek key pattern image by nextrecord from

Tattoos placed on the inner wrist are attractive, affordable and easy to hide if needed. Because of their small size, inner-wrist tattoos can be done in a shorter amount of time and tend to heal quicker than other larger tattoos, making them a popular choice for those squeamish about pain. When getting a tattoo, it is always important to go to a reputable tattoo shop that is licensed and practices proper sterilisation procedures.

Script is an elaborate or ornate style of lettering common in tattooing. Script tattoos consisting of one or two words are perfect for the inner wrist because they fill the space without becoming crowded. Choose a word, phrase or name that has special meaning to you or reminds you of an important event in your life. You could also choose to get each wrist tattooed with complimentary or opposing words such as "peace" and "love" or "good" and "evil." Another consideration when getting a script tattoo on your wrist is which way the text is facing. Facing toward you signifies the word is for yourself, while facing outward suggests that the word is directed at those who view it.


Tribal wrist tattoos are one of the most popular designs for wrist tattoos. A tribal design refers to a design that is reminiscent of traditional tribal art and is usually favoured by men because of its thick, black design patterns. Tribal tattoos can also have significant meanings. There are tribal symbols of protection and healing that fit perfectly on the inner wrist. A tribal tattoo on the inner wrist can also serve as a marriage tattoo and symbolise the commitment made to your partner.

Kanji, an ancient form of Chinese writing that was later adapted by the Japanese, is another popular tattoo design that fits well on the inner wrist. With more than 1,900 characters, there is a kanji for almost any word or phrase you want. Kanji tattoos are ideal for those who want a tattoo with personal meaning, but may not want the rest of the world to know what it signifies. Kanji is traditionally written in black but, as a tattoo, it can be coloured, faded or left as an outline. When selecting your kanji, make sure you go to a reliable source so you are sure of its meaning. Select a tattoo artist skilled in kanji tattoos because a error in the ancient calligraphy could alter the meaning of the tattoo.
