Of all the places on your body that are tattoo-worthy (aka anywhere you want a tattoo), the wrist is one of the most popular spots. It's visible, yet small enough to not overwhelm you. Plus, it's the perfect placement for a daily reminder, mantra or just something pretty that inspires you everyday. But since you've already decided on getting your wrist inked, I obviously don't have to convince you. Choosing the placement is sometimes the easy part— maybe you're still looking for cute wrist tattoo inspiration to help you decide on what exactly to get. In that case, look no further.
The beauty of wrist tattoos is that tats of all shapes and sizes look amazing there— from subtle and simple to big and bold; portraits to script tattoos and everything in between. If you're wanting something a little bigger, you can even expand your tattoo to cover part of your forearm as well, for ink that stands out even more. Whether you decide to go with a favorite quote, a geometric pattern, a artistic portrait, or even a couple's tattoo with your significant other, the wrist is the perfect blank canvas for some beautiful art or a simple reminder to yourself of something you never want to forget.
