Women’s tattoo designs have grown enormously at a fast rate. Even just twenty years ago you were just starting to see women with tattoos, and most of these women kept them in discrete places so they could cover them up.

One of the very first women to sport tattoos was Betty Broadbent in 1927. She became known as the first tattooed lady; displaying her body art with Ringling Brothers, Barnum and Bailey Circus. Not only was Betty the first to have a full body tattoo, but she was also the first to have her self tattooed by the electric tattoo machine.

Now in 2010, you can pretty much find a tattoo parlor in every city, as well as women sporting some pretty great tattoo designs all over the world.

Tattoos in general are now available in more colors and with pretty much any kind of design you like. If you are going to an exceptional tattoo artist, they can pretty much duplicate anything you like.

Women’s tattoo designs over the years have pretty much evolved from simple ’names‘ and ‚roses‘ to outrageous designs like ‚flowers down the back‘, ‚the tramp stamps‘ and ‚angel wings‘.

Also, women are no longer getting tattoos that they keep hidden. Tattoos are shown in more visible places, and are considered ’sexy‘ in modern day society.

• Shooting stars
