Move over cuticle tattoos, this trend is the next evolution of tiny hand tattoos. Nail tattoos are exactly what they sound like, but there’s some more info people should know before getting them. Here’s everything you need to know about nail tattoos, the latest tattoo trend.
Did you know you can actually tattoo your fingernails? Well, you can. Other trends such as cuticle tattoos were on the area just around the nail, but this trend takes place on top of the nail itself.
As painful as it sounds to get your nails tattooed, it’s actually not that bad. Most people who’ve gotten them say they’re pretty painless. That makes sense since your nail doesn’t have any nerves. At most you’ll feel some small fibrations on your fingers.
Small tattoos take more time to complete than people realize. The exact time all depends on how detailed the design is and how many fingers you’re getting done, but the most amount of time goes into the consultation and planning. It should also be noted that these aren’t permanent. As your nails grow out so will the ink. They should last around 6 weeks, but it all depends on your individual nail growth.
Nails are pretty small, so the design has to be too. Most nail tattoos fall into the minimalist style out of sheer necessity. Designs like letters, dots, lines, or simple images like flowers are popular.
This is a fairly new tattoo trend. So new in fact that only a few locations in the world probably do. If you’re looking for a local artist it’s best to find one that has done it before, or who at least has experience doing tiny tattoos. There’s a risk of going too deep which can have serious consequences.
This tattoo trend certainly is crazy, but it’s definitely fun. If you’d like to learn more or want to book an appointment feel free to contact us or stop by our downtown Toronto tattoo shop.
