15 Linework Tattoo Ideas for Women

These linework tattoo ideas for women are cute, creative, and will help inspire your next tattoo.

If you’re new to linework-style tattoos and aren’t sure what they are, linework utilizes lines to create their imagery.

For example, when shading, fields of pigment are not used. Instead, the artists will use lines (they can be small, medium, or large) to produce the effect. Linework tattoos truly show us the power that a line can have.
