50 Inspirational Wrist Tattoos
Life is hard and can sometimes be a real struggle. Sometimes we forget to stay strong, follow our dreams, or never give up. That’s why it’s such an awesome idea to get a wrist tattoo! They are small, dainty, and hold a close inspirational message nearby when you need it.
1. Never Lose Hope (Plus a Cute Owl)
Because sometimes when things get tough we just want to throw our hands up and give up. This tattoo is a quick reminder to NEVER lose hope, even when the outcome or event seems hopeless. (Oh, and the addition of the owl is a dash of trendy cuteness we adore!)
2. Be Still
This is a beautiful, calming, and inspirational tattoo that would quickly help out any lady that’s feeling hectic. With or without the small cross, the words ‘be still’ is a handy reminder that even when life is hectic and out of control, we need to relax and take a deep breath before moving forward.
3. In Loving Memory
A gorgeous wrist tattoo all around, this inspirational tattoo is a reminder that you WILL see your loved one again. Adding their lifeline and date of departure is also a wonderful way to pay your respects and never forget the treacherous day where such an important person left your life.
4. Think Positive
Ugh. It is SO easy to get caught up in all the negativity of this world, and that’s why we LOVE this wrist tattoo. It’s just a simple reminder to always think positive no matter what terrible things might be going on around you. Another great wrist tattoo idea that can be done with or without the cross, and we love the lettering of this particular tat.
SO many people dream of traveling the world, but few actually do it. This little tattoo of a map of the world can be a constant inspiration to follow your dreams and see all the parts of the world you’ve always wanted to see. You only have one life, you may as well have a goal such as this!
6. Semicolon Dragonfly
The semicolon is a part of a sentence where the writer COULD have finished their thought, but decided to keep going. And that’s what makes this lovely dragonfly semicolon tattoo SO inspirational. It’s a constant remember to keep going, no matter what. It is a symbol of continuation, and that’s something everyone can use now and then.
7. Stay Strong
“Stay strong”. Can you think of another inspirational saying as popular as this one? It’s straight, simple, and to the point, and having it plastered across your wrists is an easy way to constantly remind yourself to stay strong through the hard times. (And we have to admit, we LOVE the snazzy writing of this tat with the accenting lips and heart!)
8. Flying Birds
For my travelers out there who dream of big extravagant trips across the country, here’s another inspirational wrist tattoo that will work for you. These flying birds are not only incredibly cute, but they can have a hidden reminder to reach your goals of traveling the world. You are the bird, so let your wings fly freely!
A warrior is not weak; in fact, they are ANYTHING but. Being a warrior means you are undeniably strong, able to tackle even the most treacherous and dangerous obstacles that come your way. Having ‘warrior’ tattooed right on your wrist will give you that strength when you’re feeling weak, a quick reminder that you’re a woman warrior- an incredibly strong woman that can do ANYTHING!
Because sometimes we want to give up hope and stop believing. This simple wrist tattoo is whimsical and sweet, with the addition of a cute bird and squiggly lines leading to the word ‘Believe’, which will hopefully keep your spirits high and strengthen your beliefs (whatever they are!).
11. I am not afraid to walk this world alone.
Of course it’s nice to have someone by your side, but you should never be afraid to tackle the world by yourself. This is an inspirational wrist tattoo that reminds you how incredibly strong you are and that you can do anything on your own.
12. Religious ‘Faith’
For my religious girls out there who may need a reminder to hold true to their faith, this is a wonderful idea. The design is adorable, including a nifty cross on the left side and an infinity symbol interlocking with the cursive letters reading ‘faith’. And with a tiny heart in place of the dot, this lovely religious tat is as cute as it is inspirational.
Family is always an inspiration no matter what! Remind yourself how important and dear to your heart your family is with this delightful little number. We absolutely love how the letter ‘f’ forms into a heart for the entire word ‘family’. How cool is that? Very unique and pleasant design that would look great on anyone’s wrist.
Arrows are not only one of the hottest tattoo designs for 2015, but they can also be incredibly inspirational if you give it a chance! You see, arrows shoot forward in the direction you point them. These arrows could be a representation and reminder that YOU are in charge of your life and your future, and to always stay focused and keep going.
It’s always nice to get away from time to time, but if you can’t find time to take off from life, this tattoo can be a cute reminder to just relax and take a second to close your eyes and escape from the world- only if it really only lasts a matter of minutes.
16. Remember who you are.
Classic Disney movies were always teaching us valuable life lessons, weren’t they? And this classic line from The Lion King is one that was embedded in our hearts the moment we saw it. Always remember who you are. So true, and makes for such an adorable tattoo design on the wrist.
17. Still I rise.
Because no matter what, if we believe in something, we should always rise up and be confident. Because no matter what, we should always be confident in ourselves and our goals, even when others are trying to tear us down. Still I rise!
Needless to say, this sailboat is utterly adorable. But that’s not the point here. This is another cute wrist tattoo for the travelers out there, specifically for the ones who have dreams of traveling by boat across the seas. This is a wonderful reminder to never forget your boating dreams!
19. First Initial
Madly in love with your husband/wife? Have someone in your life that means everything to you? Are they your constant inspiration in life and help you to keep moving further? Than why not get their name tattooed to your wrist! This first initial wrist tattoo is quite simple, yet could hold a ton of meaning depending on whose initial it is. Don’t forget the dainty heart for a little extra dash of femininity!
Have you ever been SO incredibly stressed out that you felt like you couldn’t breathe? Like the world and all of its problems was suffocating you? In that moment, this tat would certainly come in handy. A friendly reminder to just relax and take a deep breath!
The best remedy for pain and sadness is simply to SMILE! But, it can be awfully hard to remember to keep that frown upside down when times get rough. That’s why this simple tat comes in handy all the time. The little word ‘smile’ plastered along the top of the wrist will ensure you always remember to showcase that beautiful, glowing smile, no matter what.
As we get older, sometimes we forget to keep imagining. To keep on dreaming! Tattoo the word ‘imagine’ to wrist so you never forget.

Space is full of mystery and wonder, and this whimsical tattoo will remind you of all the majesty of the world, and all the unknown that we should continue to strive to figure out.
