Do it for you.

It becomes increasingly difficult to love oneself in a society where we are constantly reminded that we don't meet (impossible) beauty standards. The age of social media has taught us that we are only worthy of love when we receive it from others. Many of us are constantly seeking external validation, but the only validation we will ever truly require is from ourselves. But it's easy to overlook.

Now, we need to be reminded that self-love is the most important form of love we can receive. Because when we learn to love ourselves, we are no longer bound by what others think of us. We are free to become the people we want to be, not the people others tell us we should be. And what better way to remind us to love ourselves than to have it permanently etched on our skin? Ahead, we curated 10 self-love tattoos to get your started. Keep scrolling!

        4. Self-Love tattoo

          The image of a person hugging themselves has become a universal symbol for self-love. Not only does it have a significant meaning, it’s also a really pretty dainty design that you can easily customize to fit your personal taste. Change the flowers or add some color to create an even deeper and more intimate meaning to the tattoo.

          5. Body positivity tattoo

            Similar to the hugging symbol, the image of a woman's body with flowers also symbolizes self-love that focuses more on body positivity. So cool!

            6. “Loved” tattoo

              Sometimes expressing love for yourself doesn’t have to be a symbol or an image. In fact, a simple and single word ink of  “loved” is just as meaningful and chic. Place it on a body part where you can easily read your tatt for days when you need reminding that you're loved.

                8. “Bellisima” tattoo

                  For an extra touch of mystery, why not use foreign words to describe yourself. Take “bellisima,” for example, which means beautiful in Italian. Take it up a notch and have it inked following your own handwriting. Adorbs!

                    Keep it straightforward and cute. Have it tattooed somewhere you can read it easily for when you need a little reminder or when you're trying to reflect and improve your relationship with yourself.

                    10. Floral heart tattoo

                      Flowers aren’t just pretty, they’re also a symbol of growth. Growth often comes with self-love, so why not combine the two in an adorable floral heart tattoo. If you're not so keen with a big ink like this, have it in a smaller size or experiment with line art to make yours more personal and unique.
