Watercolor tattoos are a favorite among those who want to add a feminine touch to their body art, and they're always a good first tattoo since they stand out regardless of the size—perfect for dainty ladies and artsy folks.
Just like a painting, a watercolor tattoo calls for skillful and artistic hands. If you're planning on getting one for yourself, make sure to book an artist who is experienced with this kind of style and technique. Otherwise, your colorful ink may end up looking messy and dirty, and it will most likely not age well.
