If loyalty is important to you, you’ll love checking out these loyalty tattoo ideas for women.

Some people consider the loyalty tattoo to be something that only men desire to be inked on their bodies. However, from my experience, women enjoy these tattoos just as much.

Whether it’s getting a matching couples tattoo, best friend tattoo, or even getting your spouse’s name tattooed on your skin, each of these tattoos represents loyalty in its own special way.

Use these loyalty tattoos as inspiration for your next tattoo. If you like a specific tattoo, you can get something similar, but change the location, font, or design to make it unique to you.

Loyalty Meaning

To be loyal means to remain faithful to something or someone. That can mean being loyal to your friend, spouse, family member, etc.

Getting a loyalty tattoo is a great way to show your dedication and loyalty. It also shows people that you are a loyal person to the people who matter the most to you.

To get matching loyalty tattoos shows even more dedication between two or more people. I’ve found that even people who aren’t fans of getting tattoos, or more willing to get a matching loyalty tattoo than any other tattoo.

Loyalty Tattoo Placement

Some common placement areas for a loyalty tattoo are the forearm, wrist, shoulder, and neck. That’s because these areas are easily visible and serve as a daily reminder of your values, and the people that are most important to you.

Of course, you can get your tattoo wherever you’d like. For example, if you’re getting a loyalty tattoo for your spouse, you could place it on your ring finger.

Fingers Make a Great Placement Area

Even though most of these tattoos are on the arm area, the finger is another great location for your loyalty tattoo. Your finger tattoo can include words such as loyalty, respect, and love.

If you decide to get a finger tattoo, keep in mind that finger tattoos will fade over time. That’s because the fingers get a lot of use in your everyday life. From washing your hands to other daily activities, these things will play a role in the fading of your tattoo.

Getting Touchups

Your tattoo will fade over time. However, there are things that you can do to help keep your tattoo vibrant. One of the best things that you can do is keep your tattoo out of the sun.

If you notice that your tattoo has faded, you can always get it touched up to keep it looking good. Some tattoo artists will do touchups for free if you get the touchup within one year of getting your tattoo.

Make sure you ask your artist about touchups before moving forward with your tattoo.

Before getting a touchup, you’ll have to make sure that your tattoo is completely healed. I recommend Ora’s Amazing Herbal Tattoo Salve as it helps to heal your tattoo and prevents color leaching.

Tattoo Healing

Once you get your tattoo, it can take five days to three weeks for it to heal. This is because some people take longer than others to heal. However, the location of the tattoo on your body also plays a part in how long it will take to heal.

For example, tattoos that are located near a joint or anything that flexes (like the hand or wrist), will take longer to heal than an area that doesn’t move as much.
