2. Finger Tattoo with Anniversary Date

Every woman has a date, number, or time that has a meaning to her. That’s usually a dating or wedding anniversary, a lucky number, or a loved one’s birthday. Why not commemorate it permanently with a simple finger tattoo? The side of a finger is a cool placement idea because it’s not always visible and it’s a small area so the tattoo won’t be as painful. If you’re married, you can opt for a wedding ring finger instead.
