Positivity Wrist Tattoo

Positivity is the name of the game in life.  Being positive can get you through the hard times and lift you up to the next level and beyond the fantasies of your wildest dreams. It can also make a half a glass of water seem half full rather than half empty. You may be wondering if the seeing the glass as half full rather than half empty is good thing. The glass in the vessel and the saying can be substituted with anything in life such as a cup or jug or maybe even your self-esteem.  The moral of the story is to stay positive.


Butterfly Wrist Tattoo

The old butterfly. Who can resist those flying things that have all the pretty colors? They are quite popular in the tattoo world. The fact of the matter is people love pretty things.  Pretty everything from people to jewelry to clothes to animals and the list goes on. Some would say that our perception of pretty has been skewed by the media. Although nature is one thing that can’t be skewed, it is forever present and inspiring.  It always has and always will be until the earth blows up from having too many humans on it.

Love Me Tender Wrist Tattoo

This chap has a tattoo confessing his love to Haam. I think it says Haam. Haam with a double-A. I too love ham, especially the ham you get at Christmas time. There is nothing like some shaved ham off the bone.  The smokey salty taste you get when it touches your taste buds is one worth waiting for throughout the year. I like it on toast with mustard. How do you like your ham. Hit us up in the comments box and let us know. This guy loves it so much he got a tattoo.

Sun Wrist Tattoo

Who loves the sun? We are all children of the sun and we are at the whims of the great magnet that flows through the universe. The sun is our savior, our saving grace from the darkness of the night. And that my friends, is why we love the sun. It spans back from the dawn of the human race as the sun is responsible for providing with a necessary element to grow food and keep us warm.  The sun is definitely worth a tattoo to pay homage to this golden ray of light.

Sunflower Wrist Tattoo

The sunflower is another lover of the sun. This plant thrives in sunny conditions and grows towards the sun. One could not exist without the other.  Above is a nice tattoo of a sunflower on the wrist. It has a big fat outline and a very interesting center that looks like it has been done using a dot technique.


Compass Wrist Tattoo

A compass tattoo is great for whenever you get lost you can look down at the tattoo and find your way.  Sailors and seamen have been using compasses as a guide before smartphones were invented. They don’t rely on battery so they will always work. They rely on magnetics to work and steer you in the right direction. You can always follow the compass of your heart and you will never get lost.

Love Heart Compass Tattoo

I don’t really know what is going on with this love heart tattoo but it seems some seamen is dancing around inside it. It may be reference to the act of conception. The birds and the bees type thing. Well, sonny when a man loves a woman they go to bed and make a baby.  This tattoo could also be happy family dancing in a circle, hand in hand, happily going through life without a care in the world. That’s the beauty of tattoos. They can be perceived however you want them to be and only the beholder knows the true meaning.

Lotus Flower Wrist Tattoo

The lotus flower is the symbol of Vietnam. It means that something beautiful can grow from nothing. It is also used in yogic culture. The above tattoo is of a lotus flower and uses some beautiful line work in a simple yet effective tattoo.

Angel Wrist Tattoo

Angel or Demon? Angels are make-believe characters that live in heaven and watch over us. They might be real but I’ve never seen one before. Have you seen an angel? Hit us up in the comments box and let us know.

Dumbells and Ribbons

WTF? This is a weird combination. It looks like a birthday present for a weight lifter or gym junkie. That’s the beauty of tattoos is that you can get anything you want. Whether this tattoo actually means something is irrelevant. Sometimes tattoos don’t have to mean anything they can just look downright cool as this one featured above does.

Owl Wrist Tattoo

The wise old owl sitting on this person’s wrist reminding them never to lose hope.  It’s good advice. You shouldn’t lose hope even in those situations that look like there’s no way out because life has a tendency of surprising you when you least expect it.  You never know what’s around the corner as tomorrow is a new day and will provide you with the sun to guide you out of the darkness and light your path to better days. If your partner is cheating on you or you have a run of bad luck, make a change and watch the better times roll on in.

Bart Simpson Wrist Tattoo

This is an example of Bart Simpson on drugs. You can tell he has been hitting the hard stuff by the look in his eyes and semen stains on his pants from his constant masturbation. the bomb represents that he is a ticking time bomb waiting to go off at any second from using too many drugs. Gone are the days of the sweet, mischievous boy from the cartoon that we have come to know and love. He is not the same person as the Bart you used to know he has been overtaken by the drugs.  Bart made some bad life choices and now he’s on the corner near you giving fellatio for a hit.

Jewelry Wrist Tattoo

Expensive jewelry is pretty but it’s easily lost or broken.  If you want to bling up get it in tattoo form then there is no way of losing it or breaking it unless of course you get into a road bike accident and your skin gets scraped off by the bitumen.  There is a lesson to be learned and a moral to the story. Don’t ride too fast on your road bike or you could lose skin and in turn, lose your tattoos.


The Classic Anchor

Shiver me timbers it’s time to set sail on the high seas. Then when it comes time to stop at a good fishing spot throw down the anchor and it will stop you in your tracks.  Then you can safely throw a line in and catch a delicious fish for dinner.  This anchor appears to have a love heart in it which could be a symbol of their everlasting love.

Music Wrist Tattoo

Do you have the music in your soul? This person does hence the wrist tattoos. Music has the ability to bring you out of the depths of hell and raise you to the heavens.  Music has the ability to console and heal you in those times of need. When you feel alone you can always pop on your favorite albums and bop away the suffering that life can bring.

Outline Wrist Tattoo

This tattoo is pretty cool. It’s a simple sketch outline of two people making out. I think that’s what it is anyway. What do you think it is?

Cross Wrist Tattoo

Sign your name across my heart, I want you to be my baby. I forget who sung those lyrics but it has nothing to do with this wrist tattoo. These are a pair of crosses that can be related to some religious thing or maybe this guy has a messiah complex. My friend had an identity crisis when he was younger, I think it was from the fact that he went bald early in his life. To combat this he got a bunch of tattoos and one of them thorns around his wrist like Jesus Christ at the crucifixion. He regrets them now but then they were the solice that got him out of the bad spot he was in.

Weed Wrist Tattoo

Buds, buds, and more buds. We all love a good smoke so why not get a tattoo to show your love marijuana. One day we will look back on these years and think of them as the prohibition era. The fact that the government can ban a plant that has so many beneficial uses to humankind is a crime. It is now being legalized across the globe. The sooner the better I say.  Weed can be medicine, it can also be used as a fiber for clothing and textiles. Some say it’s a miracle plant sent from God and then the powers that be go and ban it. Legalize it.

Bunny Wrist Tattoo

Here is a tattoo of the bunny from Alice in Wonderland. Well, at least I think it is. It sure does look like it. I like the way the artist has done the bunny in segments adding a very unique touch to the artwork.  It’s almost impossible to hate bunnies. They are so cute and fluffy but in some cultures, they eat them. If you can catch one you should try having a nibble on the ears at least. I hear they taste like chocolate.

Are you the Ying to my Yang?

What a lovely sentiment? This couple has got matching Ying and Yang tattoos. They would not be complete without each other. It also represents the balance in the ebbs and flows of the universe. The light and the dark, the tessellating shapes, the good and the bad.


Winnie the Pooh Wrist Tattoo

Good old Winnie the Pooh, I could never stay mad at you. Even if you did steal all my honey and left me with none. It was so annoying, I was making my morning toast and I spread the butter on and then when I went to spread the honey on there was none left in the jar. I went and knock on Winne Pooh’s door and he answered it. I asked him if he stole my honey and he flat out denied. He had a bunch of honey on his lips while he said it. I didn’t mind. He was a honey junkie and some bears just can’t help themselves.

Ride the Lightning Wrist Tattoo

Ride the Lightning was one of Metallica’s early albums and one of the better ones as far as I’m concerned before they went all crappy and made that documentary where they seemed like they were whiney little bitches. You know the one, I think it was called Some Kind of Monster. It really made think less of them but one shouldn’t judge I guess. It is so easy to judge these days as we are in the age of judgment. Everyone has a voice on the internet and people can judge under a different guise. Under an alias and there will be no repercussions.  Back in the old days, you had to talk smack about people in the real world which could result in a punch in the face. Repercussions are a good thing. They help you learn and grow.

Hello Kitty Wrist Tattoo

The famous Japanese cat. Doesn’t it make a cute tattoo? Who wouldn’t want a tattoo of this cute little cat with a bowtie in its hair? There is so much Hello Kitty merchandise in the world and it’s all made out of plastic. Imagine how much of it has ended up in landfill somewhere. There are whole suburbs and cities built on Hello Kitty merchandise. Next time you are thinking of buying a plastic piece of junk think of where it will end up. More than likely it will end up in the dirt somewhere and let me tell you it doesn’t biodegrade in a hurry.

Stitch Wrist Tattoo

Stitch would have to be one of my favorite Disney characters as he doesn’t fit the conventional modality of cutesy, do gooder. He is badass alien that has to learn how to behave in the human world. He learns to love his friend Lilo and they form a strong bond together. It also makes a super cool tattoo. What is your favorite Disney character? We would love to know. Hit us up in the comments box and let us know who your favorite character is.

Birds of Feather Wrist Tattoo

This little bird is flying high with some sort of plant in its mouth. It’s a fine tattoo and the artist has done an amazing job at capturing the bird in mid-flight.

Tattoo Aftercare

Now is about the time that I talk about how to care for your tattoo after it has been completed. Your tattoo artist should tell you how to look after your tattoo. If they don’t here are a few tips. Keep it out of the water until it’s healed properly. You should also use a moisturizer to prevent your tattoo from getting dry. If it does get dry the scabs will fall off taking the precious ink with it and then you will have to get a touch up later on down the track.

Mom Wrist Tattoo

If you really love your mother you would get a tattoo with her name on it. This person really loves her mother as you can see by the tattoo on her wrist. People show love in different ways. Some people buy gifts, some people vocalize it, some people show affection and some people get tattoos.  How do you show your love? Hit us up in the comments box below and let us know.

What an amazing list of wrist tattoos. This was one of the best lists we have compiled and we hope you feel the same. We also hope that it gave you some ideas and inspiration to get back in the chair and get your next tattoo. I know it did for me.  I’m booking an appointment as soon as I finish this paragraph. What will your next tattoo be? We would love to hear your ideas if you would like to share them.
