2. Intertwined hearts

This tattoo is a simple wrist tattoo using only a few lines to make interconnecting hearts. This tattoo could also make a pretty mom tattoo with a heart to represent each child.

This wrist tattoo has delicate triangles with a sunflower in them.

5. Bouquet

This tattoo is in the style of a sketch of a bouquet of flowers. It could be personalized by using your favorite flowers or the birth month flowers of meaningful people in your life.

6. Scrabble tile tattoo

I absolutely love the uniqueness of this scrabble tile tattoo. This is also easy to personalize and have the tiles spell anything you’d like.

7. Everything is rosy tattoo

Here is a more color wrist tattoo idea for women. The rose is done in color and then the pretty script around it says ‘everything is rosy.”

8. Simple rose

This example is another rose tattoo, but this time is on the outer wrist. It is also simple and understated.

9. Small infinity symbol

This one is a very small wrist tattoo of an infinity symbol. This is one is definitely small and minimalistic, but with a big meaning.

10. Hearts & infinity symbol tattoo

Next is another take on the infinity symbol. It is not as simple as the last one but still keeps the design fairly low-key. It includes hearts and people, making it a nice honor for a family tattoo.

11. Elephant wrist tattoo

I love these cool elephants for those who want more of a nature vibe. I like that the elephants are simply drawn with lines and could be made smaller for a small wrist tattoo.

12. Tiny semi-colon tattoo

Love nerdy chic? This small wrist tattoo of a semi colon is perfect for book lovers or writers. I also like how it is off-set on the wrist, adding to the uniqueness

13. Minimal celestial tattoo

The next tattoo is a celestial star tattoo with a minimal vibe. It could easily be personalized, with the number of stars representing family or another meaningful number in your life.

14. Simple birds

Bird tattoos are just cool. I like this simple design and it could easily be size adjusted if you want something more understated.

15. Bird symbol + ‘Be Happy’ tattoo

Here’s another take on a wrist bird tattoo. This one includes a mantra of “be happy” with a bird symbol.

16. Rose tattoo

This wrist tattoo is of a rose with free-spirited handwriting that says “hope.” I would adjust this design so that the end of the hope word was the stem of the rose.

17. Floral growth cycle tattoo

Here is another floral tattoo idea: the life cycle of a rose going from a seed all the way to a flower.

18. “Stay True” tattoo

This tattoo uses both wrists as a remind to stay true. The design is simple and the words could be anything meaningful to you.

19. Bloom where you are planted

This is another take on a mantra wrist tattoo. I love the simple typewriter style font and the message “bloom where you are planted.”

20. I’m Happy

So many tattoos say “be happy,” that I wanted to highlight this alternative that affirms “I’m happy.” It is a subtle twist but makes a powerful statement.

21. Tiny sunflower wrist tattoo

This small wrist tattoo of a sunflower is feminine and pretty. I’d also like a version where the sunflower was done in bright colors.

22. Single heart

A single heart is a classic small tattoo idea. I also like the idea of doing the heart in color instead of black to make a more subtle but bright tattoo.

23. Heart chain

Similar to the last tattoo, here is a chain of hearts along the wrist. What I like about this iteration of the heart tattoo is that you could adjust the number of hearts to be something meaningful, like the number of children or siblings in your family.

24. Moon and sun on each wrist

Here are two wrist tattoo examples in one picture. One wrist shows a moon tattoo and the other has a funky sun design on it. It works well as a pair obviously but you could also do only one.

25. Moon cycle

Another spin on a moon tattoo is to do different phases of the moon. You could pick moon phases that are meaningful, like the moon when you were born or got married. Or you could do a full moon cycle.

26. Female symbol

The female symbol is a classic woman’s tattoo idea. A simple symbol on the wrist feels powerful and feminine.

27. Butterfly in flight

I really like this simple design that utilizes the wrist and forearm. It shows a dotted line flight path going up the inner forearm to the small butterfly on the wrist.

28. Fox tattoo

I love the design of a simply line-drawn fox as a tattoo. It has cool nature vibes while also being sleek.

29. “Be Chill”

Here is one last wrist mantra tattoo. I like “be chill” as a little more unique alternative to “relax.”

30. Side wrist tattoo

Finally, don’t feel limited to only the inner wrist! This side wrist tattoo adds a bit of uniqueness for an extra cool factor.

31. Constellation tattoo

This tattoo of a constellation is simple but very cool. You could do it as a matching tattoo as pictured here or do a full constellation as a single wrist tattoo.

This fine line wrist tattoo has cool geometric diamond shapes with roses in them.

Here’s another example of an outer wrist tattoos. This design showcases a butterfly whose flight pattern makes a simple heart.
