Choosing your tattoo design may feel like a stressful process, but I’m here to make it easier for you by rounding up a collection of absolutely beautiful first tattoo ideas for women.

Getting your first tattoo is a special moment. You’ve finally made the decision to have something permanently inked on your body. Now it’s time to decide on your design.

Because this will be your first tattoo, I’ve decided to share tattoos that are simple and won’t require too much time in the tattoo parlor.

Remember, if you see a tattoo that you like, you don’t have to get yours exactly the same. You can do things like altering the design, changing or removing the colors, etc. Make it your own so that it feels more personal to you.
