200+ Best Knee Tattoos Designs With Pictures (2021)

Many tattoo artists have a love-hate relationship with knee tattoos. This is due to several reasons that they face while tattooing the knee. They love knee tattoos because it provides creative freedom to them. They can ink the upper side of the knee or on the bottom of the knee or any of the sides. Many artists gave surprisingly beautiful designs on the backside of the knee in tattoo expos.

That being said, Knee tattoos are like roses with thorns. Here is why tattoo artists hate inking on this body part.

Do Knee Tattoos Hurt?

Yes, A Lot. Knee tattoos can be one of the most painful tattoo choices that you can take. There is no muscle mass on the knee therefore it will be just a few tissues above the bone that will be protecting it from the puncturing of tattoo machine needles.

Knee tattoos are so painful that many rappers like Post Malone, MGK, and Lil nas have said that they left the artist mid-away during the session and came back after few days to complete the design.

Tattoos on knees are not a joke. So think long and hard before you commit to it.

Knee Tattoos Ideas

There are multiple designs that you can try on your knee. Both men and women can give try a different kinds of designs. For example, Men can try –

Tribal Designs – Knees provide a circular space. There are many tribal designs in a circular style that can be tried on the knees. You can try the popular mandala designs on knees or even the hamsa design on it.

Eye – Since knees provide a unique angle and spacing therefore they make a perfect choice for an eye tattoo. You can try the infamous Illuminati eye tattoo on it or even the eye of Egyptian gods on it.

Old School Designs – The 1930s and 1940s saw a lot of experimentation on knee tattoos. The most famous was sailor jerry tattoos. You can opt for Pin up girl tattoos on the knee or even the old-school American neo-traditional designs.

Women too have choices to try different kinds of designs on their knees. Some of the most popular are –

Butterfly tattoos – Butterflies look elegant on a women’s body. Ladies can try it on any part of their body and it will look good. Knees are no exception. A group of flying butterflies across the knee can look attractive.

Spider Web – Women can try tribal designs as well. But, I have found spider web to be a better choice for them. Many female celebrities have opted for spider web tattoos on their knees instead of any other design.

Matching Tattoos – Men do not like inking on both knees while women love to have matching tattoos on both knees. It can be a lock and key tattoo or a king and queen tattoo. The choices are unlimited.

Name Initials – This is rather a new trend. Many women love to have initials of their significant other inked on the backside of their knees. Singer Billie Eilish was spotted with one such fake design. You too can follow this trend.

Meaning of Knee Tattoos

There is no particular meaning of knee tattoos. However, the design can convey a particularly deep meaning. It depends on what kind of design you have chosen. One thing that knee tattoos will convey is that you are a mentally strong person as you have to sit through a painful tattoo session.
