Feminine Realistic Tattoo Ideas

Tattoos that are deemed 'feminine' are often associated with specific styles or elements, such as minimalism or a softer colour palette. However, if you are looking for something d̶i̶f̶f̶e̶r̶e̶n̶t̶ better than the usual, take a look at a few of the tattoos done by our resident artist, Shiva (@tattoosbyshiva).
