Knee tattoos can be feminine, sexy and they’re easy to show when you want and hide when you don’t. It’s a great place to tattoo because you can go as elaborate as you want. Your knee’s circular shape complements certain patterns and it can stand on its own or be part of an elaborate leg tattoo.

I love how we’ve got the perfect mix of softer and harsher shading. We’ve got an edgy piece over here. This one’s a combination of rough elements and bold colors. This is perfect for those who really want a punk look. I really love thorn heart designs because they remain soft and delicate despite the spikey elements around them. The knee tattoo we have over here expands to a much larger leg tattoo design. What I adore most about it is the layering of the design that’s just really impressive. If you don’t want a design that goes all around your knee, you can stick to framing ones like this floral wreath over here. This is such a lovely design.

We’ve got an interesting little creature over here. I love the dark shadows accompanied by simpler line art elements creating a nice balance. I want to focus on the beautiful spider web design in this photo. I love how they shrank the circle in the middle which creates the illusion of smaller legs or a smaller kneecap.
