We see you. Don’t be shy, we know you’ve got a Pinterest board dedicated to all the possible tattoo designs you’ve been dying to get. So why are you hesitating?
With the vast number of options out there, it can be daunting to pick just one design plus where to place it. Hear us out though, how about a thigh tattoo? But we’re not talking about massive and intricate tatts that cover a lot of areas (although if you’re into that, go ahead!) but something a lot more classy, simple, and effortlessly timeless.

Also, your thighs are covered up most of the time, unless you live and breathe in shorts, so they’re easy to hide if you don’t want to show them off.
To narrow down your search, we’ve rounded up some cool and classy designs that will make even the most indecisive Libra finally get inked. Go on and scroll to discover our recos!
