When it comes to the word balance, the meanings can be quite profound. For some women, this word means they should have stability in life. Manage their health, finances, relationships, and so on equally well. Often we get so focused on one thing in life, such as work, that it is detrimental to other aspects in other life such as family. Like all things in life, everything must come in moderation and we must accept the mysterious life force of balance.
For other women, the word balance, means to have good footing on the ground. By this I mean a gymnast keeping her balance on the balance beam, but that’s just the basics behind this word.
Go a bit deeper and it can mean standing your ground against something you oppose. In another light, balance can be a reminder of justice for wrongdoings. Some women can go as far as to view the word as a reminder of fairness, and a symbol to be kind to all without any further explanation needed. Let’s face it, sometimes we treat people terrible, and sometimes we treat people great. If only we could meet in the middle and treat all people good.
The most popular meaning behind the word revolves around balancing your mental health. Feeling down? Stop for a moment and take some time out for yourself. The word is a quick reminder that sometimes you have to focus on you, and only you for a moment or two. You can’t please everyone and ignore yourself girlfriend.
Lastly, the word can be a reminder to balance your health and eating habits. By this I mean moderating your intake of alcohol or sweets, and choosing to go with good nutrition to feed your body. In another light, the word can represent the need to “balance” your Netflix couch potatoes habit with your sweat burning gym sessions.
Personally, I love word tattoos because they are so simplistic and perfect for any women’s first tattoo design. The process of inking these pieces is super quick, very affordable and it’s rather rare for the meaning to vanish from your life. Balance is a lifelong necessity that we must always aspire to achieve.
When it comes to word tattoos, all caps is a modern, contemporary way to go. The end result is a clean, stylish design that looks plenty feminine. I like the almost handwritten font style of this balance forearm tattoo. Look closely and you’ll spot a scale design in the letter “A.”
If you want a more feminine style then consider going with a handwritten cursive design. Keep the starting letter, in this case the “b” lower case for a softer appearance. I love the neck placement as this can easily be hidden with your hair down or your hoodie brunched up.
Here’s another great placement idea for your balance tattoo on the upper shoulder. Note the letter “L” which has a slight tilt to it. Black ink gets the message across just fine, though you could opt for color if you are more of the creative or artistic type of woman.
While most women tend to get word tattoos, the truth is, you can easily go with a more symbolic design that has no letters in it at all. Here’s an awesome female tattoo that’s symbolic of balance without so much as needing to use the word. Triangles, moon shapes, lines, and dots all come together to mirror on both ends. While the mirror effect is not an exact match of each end, look closely and the elements can be re-arranged to match each other. The amount of ink is similar, if not the same on both ends. It’s a reminder that achieving balance in life isn’t easy and the process is not always perfect.
Rib cage side tattoos hurt but wow, do they look good! This single word women’s rib tattoo is a good example of how to use a cute all caps design on the side of the body. Note the black ink which keeps things simple plus the extra generous spacing of the letters.
