After spending the past weekend helping a friend of mine pour over no less than 1000 different wrist tattoo designs – because that’s what good friends do, I can personally vouch for all the designs on this list Foam of a very large glass wrist are tattoo designs. While, yes, everyone has their own tastes and goals when it comes to a wrist tattoo, there are some designs that exceed personal preference.
Perfect for the part of your body that connects your arm with your hand. These tattoo designs will inspire anyone, no matter what style you have. When you’re done scrolling through that list, you’ll wonder why you’re cursed with just two wrists, instead of the myriad of radiocarpal joints you need to satisfy your ink needs.
The wrist is one of the most popular places to be inked for tattoo noobs. Especially with women. For no other reason than the cool factor alone. The combination of tiny minimalist designs, vibrant watercolor works, elegant bracelets and ornate ornamental representations, in the following gallery samples almost all of the different design choices in one fell swoop. While it’s clear that the prospects for your upcoming wrist tattoo have improved a lot, we still hope that you get involved with something original and awesome so that we can appear on a future list.
This segmented mandala design.
Creativity at its finest. This well designed wrist tattoo features a negative space band and boasts several layers of mandala petals. Subtle shades give the piece an extra dimension of depth that complements the negative space element.
These dotwork arrows.
An abstract geometric creation anchored by arrow shapes of different design. While the upper and lower parts of the wrist are the most traditional places for wrist tattoos, the back of the wrist quickly becomes our favorite.
This beautiful watercolor leaf.
This flower wreath wrist tattoo.
Adding a little color to a black and gray ink design makes everything in the world alright. While this is not the first time that Zihwa has tried this high-contrast design, it’s definitely one of her best.
This wrist tattoo.
This anatomical heart.
This detailed single-needle work has an expert combination of points and lines. Anatomical hearts are popular tattoo options, but that’s the first thing we’ve seen on the wrist. In fact, this could just be our next tattoo.
This dotwork mandala flower.
An increasing trend regarding dotwork mandala designs is the negative spacing between individual segments, and this wrist tattoo is a prime example. These designs are not as easy as they look to be executed correctly.
This Blackwork Floral Wrist Tattoo.
There is nothing nobler than a small Blackwork flower tattoo. This design enjoys a unique placement of the top of the wrist. As a design that will never go out of fashion, this is a great option for anyone looking for something simple and classic.
