On the fingers, we find a sort of controlled chaos with all sorts of micro tattoos that range from abstract to figurative.

Finger Ornaments

Fine, Fine Lines

Here’s another example of some ornamentation that really soars. Note how incredibly small those tiny dots are. We would venture to say that Hamilton’s smaller designs were likely applied without a tattoo gun and, instead, were done by hand.

Snake and Shapes

Here’s a cool idea that finds a snake slithering onto the hand with a variety of symbols below on the fingers. Notice the lines that radiate from the head of the snake? That will give you an ideal round shape for the top of your hand.

Decorated

Decorative designs look fantastic on the fingers and they are a smart choice. Finger and hand tattoos fade the fastest because stuff is always touching your hands and you wash them often which means the tattoos become less visible over time.

Symbols for Family Protection
