Whether you go for a deeply spiritual design like Gomez, who's praying hands holding rosary beads was inked at Bang Bang NYC, or something minimalist and even abstract, there's sure to be a design that makes you feel like the uniquely special creature you are.


Thigh tattoos, in particular, are super mysterious because the only time anyone will sneak a glimpse is at the pool (sexy!) or the bedroom ... ooh la la!

Before you know it, you’ll be petitioning the office for a shorter hem dress code because you won’t be able to resist showing them off.

Thigh tattoos may be intimidating for some, but for those who have had a beautiful and large piece of artwork dancing in their heads for years, a thigh tattoo is the answer. With a large area of skin like the thigh, design ideas are endless.

You could go for a sneaky, yet sexy, rose design with vines and buds that creep up your side. Or you could do a back thigh mosaic. Even a design that starts in the front and wraps around the back could be the perfect choice for you. The possibilities are truly endless.

And can we talk about how powerful and strong the thigh is?! It gets worked out every day (unless you are like me and enjoy the couch a little too much).

Whether you are curvy, lean, or muscle city — a thigh tattoo will highlight how sexy and strong your body is. And if that isn’t a confidence boost, then I don’t know what is.
