Looking for some meaningful minimalist simple hip tattoos to match your discreet and creative personality? You’re exactly where you’re meant to be!
(If you were not planning on a hip tattoo, take this as a sign that you should get one right now!)
Cute and chic, a hip tattoo is all about the bold femininity in you.
However, a hip tattoo can instantly be elevated by combining some minimal and aesthetic tattoo design with it. If you are someone who is bold but also is not really into showing off, a simple hip tattoo will never fail you. Hip tattoos are one of the most popular and discreet locations on the body to get inked on. One reason it is so popular amongst women tattoo enthusiasts is that it can be hidden, and even if you choose to show it off a little, it can still be an eye-catching piece of art. Another reason would be its versatility and how a person can choose to ink subtle and simple designs or large and bold designs.
Unfortunately, one of the primary reasons for a tattoo fading out is the sun. Well, the good news? A hip tattoo will barely be an issue because unless you’re at the beach in a bikini, or you’re more of a crop top and low-rise jeans kind of a person, a hip tattoo will hardly show itself.
However, if you are looking for ideas for your first tattoo, trust us, you definitely might want to reconsider. A hip tattoo is one of the body placements that are most painful, but if you think you’re brave enough and can bear the pain that comes with it, you have our green thumb!

And trust us, you can never go wrong with a cursive tattoo design. Cursive tattoos can also be fun to work with because of their potential to be as versatile as you want them to be. Get creative and think up a significant word or even letter in your life. Look up any word or phrase that can work as a reminder of all the good messages that you should never forget.

You can make it even more creative by having your favourite prose tattooed on your hips. The best part of a typewriter tattoo is the vintage touch that comes with it. All you need to do is find out something that has a special meaning in your life, transform it into a cute tattoo design, and let your hips do all the talking.
Bouquet Hip Tattoo

Delicate, cute, and bold at the same time, if you have been looking for a flower bouquet tattoo design to add to your tattoo wishlist, this tattoo is meant for you. And since each flower in the world has a unique meaning attached to it, a bouquet tattoo also gives you an option to choose any flower of your choice.

Favorite Prose Hip Tattoo
A variation to the cursive text tattoo, you can personalise your tattoo a little more with your favorite prose tattooed on your hips. There must be at least some prose or even a quote that plays a significant role in your life or would remind you of something special.

So, if you have been looking for a sign to go through with this, this is it!
