Another thing you should consider is your future employment opportunities. If you are planning to get a job in the arts area, then your tattoo can even be a good thing.

You will need a tattoo artist who is highly recommended and has an awesome portfolio. And, he or she needs to be willing to do it. Face tattoos are not for the faint of heart, and we are pretty sure a lot of artists must have had some negative experiences.
37. Small Face Tattoo
Nowadays, people are still conservative about tattoos. Mostly, they can accept when the tattoos are anywhere on the body, but for some reason, face tattoos are still unacceptable. Sometimes, these prejudices are understandable. There are all sorts of face tattoos, and even though we should not judge a book by its cover, it is not always a comfortable experience to talk to someone who has ‘death’ scrambled across his face. If you think you wouldn’t be able to get used to people staring at your face uncontrollably, then a small facial tattoo such as this one is a good idea.
36. Colorful Facial Tattoo
The fact that there are a lot of people who get questionable face is not a reason for you not to get one. People get random words in shaky scripts or poorly done dollar signs inked on their face. And, there are also people with tattoos like this lady. This is definitely a way to go if you want to nail the facial tattoo. There are three different tattoo designs on the upper part of her face. They are all done in color and undoubtedly look amazing. Additionally, it seems as if she could cover some of those designs with her hair, but she does not have a single reason to do so.
35. White Ink Facial Tattoo
White ink tattoos are as not as common as tattoos that are done in black, or some other colors. These tattoos are less visible from a distance, but they become crystal clear once people come closer to you. This type of tattoos would definitely look amazing if done to decorate a big scar since they do look a little bit like scars. But, inevitably, they will turn out just as well as all other kinds of tattoos. Well, at least when they are done by the right person.
34. Unusual Face Tattoo
Did you know that people were so narrow-minded some time ago that they came up with many controversies, and they even associated facial tattoos with certain negativities such as criminality, suicide rates, and even depression. However, nowadays facial tattoos represent creativity, aesthetics, transformation, and even spirituality. That is why, when you have decided to bring body art to your face, you need to make sure that your ideas are the best possible.
33. Minimalist Face Tattoos
Usually, a majority of people draw a line when it comes to putting a tattoo on the face. But, that is mostly because they are (for some strange reason) intimidated by the people whose faces are entirely covered with tattoos. If you are not entirely comfortable with such idea, but still would like to get a tattoo, then a clean, simple, and minimalist design such as this one is the right one for you. Even though these tattoos may not have as large impression as the tattoos that cover up the entire face, they will still definitely get your message across the people in society.
32. Tears Of A Clown
A tattoo is one’s expression of personal beliefs, creativity, and passion. This tattoo is very interesting, and due to the shape and the colors of this design, the tattoo resembles tears. It is possible that the wearer’s goal was to create tears. And, for some reason, this tattoo may remind you of the catchy phrase, ‘hide behind the tears of a clown’. What would that actually mean. To hide behind the tears of a clown means to be able to put up a smiling face even if you are falling apart inside. And, only the strongest, toughest persons are able to do so.
31. Unique Tattoo Design
What an interesting tattoo design! This man’s tattoo may even be mistaken for his hair when it is very dark. His tattoo is very creative and eye-catching. But, regardless of the beauty of these tattoo designs, you should pay attention to certain facts. One man’s meat is another man’s poison. You may want to get a face tattoo, but that doesn’t mean that you are meant to get one. If you have sensitive skin, high blood sugar, high blood pressure, or any skin condition, you should avoid getting a tattoo, especially a face tattoo, at all costs. Tattoos may make your medical condition even worse and in some cases put your life in danger.
30. Face On Your Face
Well, better said it is a face on the lady’s head. This lady is very creative, and she adapted her hairstyle to her tattoo. It looks amazing, right? It is always a great idea to have an arrangement of tattoos that continue from your face down to your neck and chest. These tattoos do not need to be closely connected but they should seamlessly join one another and appear as if they form a carefully curated gallery. It is not always easy to pull of this look, but with the right artist, it is certainly possible.
29. Temporary Face Tattoos
Since your face is pretty much the first thing people notice when they meet you, you need to be as creative as possible and faithful to your character and your beliefs. However, you should take into account several aspects such as your skin tone and the position of your tattoo. If you feel like you are still not ready to get a permanent tattoo, then you can always get yourself temporary tattoos and try out the facial tattoos without any permanent consequences.
28. Artistic Face Tattoos
Sometimes, people get face tattoos because of the certain benefits these tattoos bring. For example, you can decorate your face and conceal marks and scars you find embarrassing with facial tattoos. Such marks and scars can be anything from scars, birthmarks, or anything else you put into the unpleasant category.
27. Jessica Clark Face Tattoo
There are two Jessica Clarks you may have heard of. The first one is a British actress that starred in True Blood. However, the other Jessica Clark is probably more famous among tattoo fans. She is an Australian student and employee of Streetwear. Many people do not support Jessica’s tattoo choices, but we believe she is absolutely gorgeous. And, of course, all of her tattoos are on point. In addition, as you can see, she rocks face tattoos and is also employed.
26. Old Man Rocks Tattoos
Sometimes, people worry how their tattoos will look after a couple of years. Here is an example! When you are young, you can use your tattoos to express yourself. No one except you should decide how do you look, how do you lead your leaf, nor how do you express yourself. Tattoos are a great way for you to express your personality. It doesn’t have to be much; a simple quote or even a bible verse will be enough. And, when it comes to face tattoos… Well, this man tattooed birds on his face. Birds are usually associated with freedom, nobility, love, peace, and even knowledge.
25. No Tattoo Policy
What do you think about the “no tattoo policy?” Even though tattoos are increasingly acceptable nowadays, there is still a degree of stigma associated with them. Not all people find them artistic or consider them as something good. This extends to many workplaces that have a very strict no tattoo policy. For example, take a look at this man. He expressed his character and his artistic side beautifully. But, many people will judge him and consider his tattoos as unacceptable. How could we fight stereotypes like this?
24. Quote Tattoo
Quote tattoos are a big hit. And, believe it or not, people get a lot of quotes inked on their face. To be more precise, the most common designs are not actually phrases or sayings, but a word. A word will probably look better than a long sentence on your face. It is more preferable though to get a tattoo on a more discreet place, rather than, for example, across your forehead. But, that can also turn out to be a nifty idea.
23. Realistic Tattoos
Tattoos are used to express yourself. Some people choose to have their certain character trait visible to everyone their meet. One trait can also be creativity. This is an amazing tattoo, that stretches from the face to the chest. It looks realistic, almost as if it were real.
22. Intriguing Head Tattoo
If you do not grow hair, but prefer being shaved, here is a tattoo look that you could consider. This man has tattoos all over his head. The entire concept is unusual, as well as the tattoos. However, pulling a tattoo on your face is quite a commitment. Why would you get a face/head tattoo? There are various reasons. Some people do it for the rebellion while others want to go through some sort of a transformation. Regardless of the reason, every individual that wants to tattoo his face should ensure that the design comes out perfect.
21. Futuristic Forehead Tattoo
Does this tattoo remind you of some sort of a futuristic symbol? Or, do you actually know for a fact what does it represent? To be honest, we are not entirely sure. Getting a tattoo is mostly a safe process. The law requires that the legal artists adhere to high standard inking. That is why you should make sure to always get your tattoos done in a certified place. There is always a risk of infection, and the risk is very high if your artist does not want to adhere to the rules.
20. Feminine Face Tattoo
Some tattoo designs are purely feminine. We believe this could be one of those designs. It is very curvilinear and features flower-like symbols. The guys could also sport a tattoo like this, but we believe they would rather go for something that looks more tough.
19. Fancy Tattoos for Dads
After seeing a man all tattooed, we doubt that some people could think of him as a father. This man has most of his upper body tattooed, and his face, of course. Because of that, he may seem tough and unapproachable to some people. But, the truth is, he is just like any other man – in love with his precious baby.
18. Colorful Head Tattoo
Not everyone would be able to wear a tattoo like this. Usually, the “crowded tattooed” face turns out to be a mess, because of all the clashing designs. A good tattoo artist should always be ready to advise you where to place your next tattoo, and not to eeny, meeny, miny, moe the spot.
17. Chin Tattoo
All these face tattoos were inspired by the ancient tribal tattoos. Many years ago, members of certain tribes would get their faces tattooed to show off their devotion and position in their tribe. Luckily, nowadays, the tattoos are a lot less painful than they used to be.
16. Floral Manly Tattoo
When we mentioned pain, we should probably warn you about the pain you will have to go through. Some tattoos do not hurt a lot because of the amount of the muscle that surrounds the bone. The muscle shields the nerves and there are also some parts of your body that do not have many nerve endings. These spots are perfect for tattoos because they do not hurt that much. But, that is not the case with your head.
15. Head, Ear, and Face Tattoo
Now, pay attention to this man’s tattoo. He tattooed his entire left side of the head including his ear, too. The fact is that there is little to no fat in this area. If you decide to get a tattoo similar to this one, keep in mind that the needles will inevitably hit the bone. And that means your tattoo will hurt.
14. Do Face Tattoos Hurt?
Well, we have just said that your head consists of bones mostly, and your tattoo will hurt regardless of how chubby your cheeks may be. In addition, your head is the nerves central. It is a home to more than 10 pairs of cranial nerves that connect the brain with the head, neck and trunk. All your organs rely on these nerves to transmit sensory details. So, there is a great chance that one of these 12 major nerves gets triggered to send pain signals directly to your brain.
13. Red Quote Tattoo
This tattoo is very interesting! First of all, we have no idea what does it mean. Yet, it will definitely draw everyone’s attention. Such an intriguing face tattoo design. What do you think, are these letters real, or perhaps this man has come up with his own design just to intrigue all of us?
12. Around-Ear Head Tattoo
We wanted to break off the pain talk just a bit, so you do not forget the beauty that lies behind the face tattoos. However, we do need to cut the talk and be straight with you. Vernacularly speaking – your face tattoo will hurt like hell. If you are not ready to fight the pain or to embrace the fact that these tattoos are not entirely socially acceptable, we need you to reconsider your choices once again.
11. Manly Face Tattoo
What does it take to make a face tattoo manly? Well, nothing. You may choose any design you like. Even flowers will work, too. Would you like to know why? Because these tattoos are extremely painful and you need to be very brave to be able to wear these tattoos proudly.
10. Eyeliner Tattoo
This tattoo starts at the corner of an eye and continues down the face. We believe that this tattoo is not permanent; that it was created using makeup. However, the design is very interesting and the tiny diamonds make it peculiar (in a good way, of course).
9. Traditional Face Tattoos
If you come from a traditional family whose members used to tattoo their faces as a symbol of their culture, then you should as well continue the tradition.
8. Robot Tattoo
This is not a tattoo of a robot. It is a design that you can get across your head that will make you look like a robot. You can also get something similar on your face, and turn yourself into a superhero such as Spiderman.
7. A Pierced Dagger
There is something so cool about a pierced dagger. We are not quite sure what it is, but we know that this tattoo would look amazing on everyone.
6. Realistic Skull Tattoo
This is one of those incredible, amazing, and realistic tattoos that leave us speechless. No words are needed for this tattoo. You can see how amazing it is all by yourself.
5. Unique Face Tattoos
Every tattoo is unique because it has a special meaning for the wearer. So, if two people get a butterfly tattoo, that does not mean those tattoos are the same. You may, as well, get a tattoo like this one if you see something that makes sense for you in it.
4. Old Man And A Tattoo
Tattoos may not last forever. And, even if they do, they will not stay the same. But, that should not stop you from getting a tattoo. This old man is the perfect example of how tattoos can still look cool, even when you get older.
3. Anchor Face Tattoo
Anchor tattoos have a very special meaning, and tattooing the anchor on your face will even make that meaning stronger. Find out everything you need to know about anchor tattoos here.
2. Scar Tattoo
We have mentioned how white ink tattoos look like scars. Well, you may get a white ink tattoo and make it look like a scar intentionally. People will definitely be less likely to judge you if they are not sure is your scar a scar or a work of art.
1. Stars Face Tattoo
This tattoo is very subtle and perfect for all the ladies. They are attractive and may even change the opinions of some people about face tattoos. Also, if your hair is longer, you may be able to cover your tattoo if you ever need to do so.
