At present, name tattoos have become extremely popular across the globe among men as well as women. Although people wear these tattoos on the wider parts of their body, the smaller-sized tattoos can be worn just about anywhere.


The good thing is that you can select any text for your name tattoo that will manifest your personality. It is feasible to use any color for these types of tattoos which can include almost anything including quotes, captions, love quotes, poems and so on. However, one needs to be careful about the spelling while wearing these tattoos.

Popular Name Tattoos for Women

Below, we will mention some popular name tattoos for women and also why they have become so popular these days.

Significant Other’s Name

Women love wearing this tattoo on their forearms. This tattoo is intended to honor the most significant man in the life of any female, and it is important for the name to stand out from the entire picture.


We all accept doves to be a symbol of peace. The dove in a name tattoo is used to signify the person who calms you with a peaceful and happy smile in times of stress and anxiety. In fact, the presence of doves is compulsory during a wedding ceremony, since these birds have a strong connection with prosperity and love.


The rose in a name tattoo is used to express the love of a woman for any special man in her life. Moreover, the presence of thorns helps to accentuate the meaning even more by reminding us of the sufferings endured by a lover before he eventually succeeds in winning his woman.


The tenderness of the wings of a butterfly reminds us of a beautiful lady. The butterfly in a name tattoo helps to indicate the admiration of the female towards the man whose name is inscribed in the tattoo. Also, the gradual transformation of a girl into a gorgeous woman is often linked to the development of a cocoon into a beautiful butterfly.

Birth Date

A woman wearing this tattoo will usually inscribe the names of her lover and her little ones on the list. Human beings, by nature, tend to forget their birth dates. However, these tattoos are meant to remind someone of his or her birth date so that they do not overlook it. Furthermore, they also indicate how important a man is to any lady who is wearing the tattoo.

Tips When Getting a Name Tattoo

Although name tattoos for women are used extensively across the world, it is essential to stick to some maintenance tips after getting these tattoos. The affected skin area is quite sore initially and one must keep the area free from irritation.

Following the tattoo session, try to drink a substantial amount of water. Wash the wounds 2 to 3 times every day and use a soft towel to dry them immediately. Do not touch any affected area and take care that your clothes do not scratch those areas.

You need to continue caring for your tattoos even after the recommended healing period of two weeks. Protect them from direct sunlight and use sunscreen if it is not possible to avoid the sun. Bear in mind that a name tattoo is going to remain with you perpetually, so don’t be hasty, and be picky.

Can You Get A Kids Name Tattoo When Pregnant?

While it is totally possible to get a tattoo when pregnant, experts recommend waiting until the baby is born. First of all, the first 3 months of pregnancy are extremely important and you shouldn’t get a tattoo since the baby’s organs are still developing.

Top 43 Kids Name Tattoo Ideas [2021 Inspiration Guide]

Is there anything sweeter than the sound of your kid’s name? What strength it gives you, and sense of purpose; they need you, and you need them even more.

Sometimes just glancing down and seeing their name gives you the courage to face the day, because you do it for them.

Tattooing the names of loved ones certainly isn’t a new tradition. For thousands of years sailors, soldiers, and even members of the royal court would ink the names of those they were devoted to onto their flesh, a token of loyalty and eternal remembrance. Today many choose to carry on this tradition by tattooing their child’s name on their arm, wrist, or over their very heart.

Designs and colors can be as varied as you wish, from elegant flourishes to bold print, with additional framing and embellishments available in all styles and subject matter. Many choose to add a portrait of their child above or beneath their ink-inscribed name, either framed or surrounded by garlands corresponding to their birth flower.

Tattooing the name of your child(ren)is the perfect way to mark an occasion of birth or special milestone. Perhaps your child’s name is a special talisman to protect you, just as they rely on you to protect them. In choosing to devote your very flesh to the inked name of your child, you are sending a higher message: that you are a nurturer and defender of the innocent.

This brightly colored tattoo uses an illustrative style to create a cartoon like image that, it is safe to assume, has special significance to the wearer and his family. The common trope of children’s blocks is put to good use here by incorporating vibrant colors and attention to detail: notice the wood grain on the unfinished block faces and the secondary letters on the different sides of the blocks. The perspective on the blocks is also well-executed. While the style may not suit everyone, this is a great tattoo that will bring smiles for years to come.

4. Building blocks with baby's name

Here's another one that goes into the detailed, but very cool tattoo category. Have your tattoo artist spell out your child's name with blocks. Add a small design at the end like a doll or other toy. This tattoo can work whether you have a baby boy or a baby girl. The size is going to depend on how long your child's name is. If you're a pro at getting inked, a longer name shouldn't be a problem! It's those that are visiting a tattoo artist for the first time that may have more trouble sitting for so long.

5. Twin baby tattoos

Got twins? No problem! Since you have two arms and two wrists, you can get your children's names tattooed on both for each. You can add shading or make it look like a watercolor design. There are plenty of design ideas that you can incorporate into this name tattoo.

6. Floral tattoo with baby's name and birthdate

This is a simple, but meaningful tattoo that a parent may choose to put on the back of their neck or another part of their body. With some flowers and the baby's name and birthday inside, this is one of many design ideas that don't require spending a long time with your tattoo artist.

7. Floral tattoo with baby's name as the stem

When it comes to baby name tattoo ideas, this one ranks pretty high in the creativity department. Yes, it's a flower. But, look at the stem. The baby's name is incorporated into the design. Some people may not see it at first, but once you do, you'll agree this is one cool tattoo.

8. Baby name tattoo with footprints

This is a simple tattoo when it comes to the elements it has, but it's still meaningful. You can get your child's name inked in cursive with baby feet on it too. This is a baby name tattoo idea whether you have a baby girl or a baby boy.

9. Motherhood tattoo for moms of twins

Name tattoo designs when you have twins can be a lot of fun. This one fits the bill for a meaningful tattoo and one that is pretty cool too. This one is big and long, so be sure to put it somewhere you have space.

10. Baby name tattoo on the back of the head

This tattoo may not be the best idea for someone getting one for the first time because it's big and is in a place where you may feel a lot of pain. We don't know how long it took the tattoo artist to complete this tattoo but kudos to the dad and the person doing the ink!

11. Child name tattoo with a flower

This is a high-quality tattoo complete with the baby's name inked in cursive and a beautiful flower. This is a tattoo many moms may fall in love with because it's very feminine and has meaning at the same time.

12. Baby's face with name tattoo

The detail on this tattoo is amazing and really stands out. The child's face and name can be put just about anywhere on the body. It looks like this proud parent put it on their arm. This is suitable for a baby boy or a baby girl.

13. Baby name tattoo on fingers

This name tattoo is only going to work if your child has a short name unless you want to get all of your fingers inked. With just one letter on each finger, this may be one of the more unique tattoo designs we've seen.

14. Baby's name tattooed in flower

You have to look closely to see this kid's name, but it's there. Trust us. The name is written in cursive along the flower's stem. Talk about an intricate baby name tattoo!

15. Baby name tattoo with footprints inked on foot

If you want tattoos with kids' names, this one hits high on the creative list. How fitting to have footprints on your feet, right? Hopefully, this person isn't ticklish! That wouldn't be fun for anyone in this situation.

16. Detailed flower with baby's name, date of birth, and time of birth

Talk about detail! Kudos to this tattoo artist who pulled off not only the flower but the child's name in the stem and the baby's date of birth and time of birth.

17. Child's name with date of birth

When it comes to name tattoo ideas, this one is simple but looks amazing. The child's name is written in fancy lettering along with the date of birth. While there's not a lot of color with this one, it still stands out as a cool tattoo.

18. Two kids' names with handprint and footprint

The parent here decided to add on to a previous tattoo when baby number two came along. You can see the first name tattoo with the footprint. Then, the second child's name and date of birth were added with a handprint. This is a great way to get both children in one tattoo design.

19. Baby's name inked on both wrists

While this isn't a big and colorful tattoo, this one still stands out when it comes to wrist tattoos. It's simple with the baby's name written in cursive on both wrists. The mom in this photo will have a reminder of her baby's name every time she looks at her arms.

20. Baby footprint with a name tattooed inside the foot

When it comes to different styles of baby footprint tattoo ideas and unique kids' names tattoo ideas, this one is a winner. The baby's name inked inside the footprint is a nice touch. Kudos to the tattoo artist who came up with this idea.

21. Child's name with birth info

This tattoo looks like a DIY design because it's so unique. You have the child's name along with all of the birth info and an intricate unicorn. While this may not be a sleeve tattoo, it's still big and takes up a lot of space on the arm.

22. Baby's name with handprint, footprint, and date of birth

When you look at kid's names tattoo ideas, this one is different than just having your child's name tattooed on your arm. Whoever tattoos dad with this one may want to take a foto of the child's handprint and footprint to get the right size.

23. Baby's name with info tattooed in a heart

While this is not a heartbeat tattoo, it is in the shape of a heart so it still counts if you were looking for that type of design. This one has lots of lettering with the baby's name and birth info as well as some terms of endearment. This one definitely counts as a cool tattoo.

24. Baby's fists and dad's fist tattooed with baby's name

If you're looking for design ideas that are different, this is one to consider. It looks like the baby's tiny fists with an adult's, giving a little fist pump. The baby's name is inked in cursive below.

25. Baby name tattoo with egg's nest

And there you have it! There are many ways to get a name tattoo. You have to think what size you would like to get, what font and where to place it. Men usually have it on their chest, at the upper back, forearms and belly. Women put it anywhere they like, and to make it look more cute, you have to make sure you have researched enough fonts and print it on a bond paper so your artist could stencil it. You can also incorporate your name tattoo with your existing tattoos. If you’re out of space already, you can get it bigger and bolder so that it will stand out.

Good luck!
