Finger Tattoos for Men 1

The Best Finger Tattoos for Men - Solid Ink Patterned Finger and Hand Tattoo

This tattoo on the fingers and left hand depicts various arrow-like shapes balanced by lines, diamonds, and dots. I like how clean the thick line art patterns match the man’s pre-existing wrist tattoo. This picture is shown after the healing process, and the ink’s crisp fill signifies that the tattoo will hold up well over time.

Men’s Motorhead Finger Tattoo

This simple finger tattoo is a black ink outline of the script used by heavy metal icons Motorhead. The design matches the band’s gothic font, although I’m a little surprised the client didn’t look to fill the lettering with shading or make it solid black. I like the decision to use the script on just one finger.

Thick Line Art Finger Tattoos for Men

Another finger tattoo crafted from thick, solid lines. This design features patterns replicated on the fingers of both hands. I like their symmetry and the use of the space between the sets of knuckles. The strength of the linework means this tattoo will age well.

True Love Script Tattoo Across Fingers

This script tattoo spells out the words true love across the fingers of both hands. I like the stylized old English lettering; it’s clean, easy to read, and features nice flourishes along each capitalized letter. My only quibble is tiny white ink highlights; they’ll fade quickly, so it may have been better to leave them out.

Blackwork and Negative Space Finger Tattoo

This man’s finger and hand tattoo is black ink offset against pockets of negative space. The simple pattern design is intentionally heavy to ensure the ink holds well and joins the rest of his body art. The client possesses a blackout tattoo covering the wrist and forearm.

Men’s Struck Match and Skull Candle Thumb Tattoos

I like the old-school fundamentals displayed in this man’s matching thumb tattoos. The right thumb features a simple struck match design, while the left is a lit candle shaped like a skull. I like the simple shading features and white highlights, but both tattoos must be re-touched over time to keep them looking good.

Line Art Patterned Finger Tattoo

This finger tattoo set is crafted from thick, solid lines featuring patterns and asterisks joined by straight lines. I like the image’s simplicity and the artist’s sensible, stable line art. Using dots on the knuckles themselves is a unique touch.

Japanese-Style Finger Tattoos

This group of finger tattoos is an excellent selection of Japanese-style artwork. Interestingly, the kanji characters are surrounded by filler – waves, clouds, wind – known as “gakubori” when applied in larger designs. Because the tattoos cover only a small area on the fingers, the gakubori is combined with “nukibori” (negative space) to be a more significant part of the design than if it was a back or sleeve piece.

“Lifeless” Script Finger Tattoo

These bold black finger tattoos spell out the word “lifeless” in a heavy metal font across both hands (the thumbs are left untouched). The thick ink will hold up well as the tattoo ages. The shading – which makes a triangle traveling across part of both hands – seems unnecessary from an artistic and maintenance standpoint.

Colorful Japanese-Style Men’s Finger Tattoos

Another Japanese-style finger tattoo design using colorful filler alongside blackwork kanji characters and flash images. This flat, thick color application is known as “beta-tsubushi” and is a staple of the Japanese method.

Men’s Simple Geometric Finger Tattoos

These geometric finger tattoos flow nicely across both hands, embodying the motto, “Simple is beautiful.” I like the clean lines and double-diamonds filled with black ink and negative space. The new ink complements the pre-existing “Let’s Ride” script tattoos on the tops of the fingers.

Tiny American Traditional Finger Tattoos

These small finger tattoos are a collection of famous American traditional designs used in flash tattoos – there’s likely a wall display or folder featuring them in your closest shop! The artist displays brilliant technique in making these tattoos look clean and clear on each finger. I also like how they support the larger tattoos on the client’s hands.

Line Art/Lettering Finger and Hand Tattoos

I like this minimalist tattoo combining the word “fragment” in a simple uppercase font with a line art star pattern. The tattoo is elegant but simply etched in clean black ink. I like the restraint shown by the artist and client, who could’ve added to the design in different ways yet chose to keep things simple, ultimately making the tattoos more effective.

Finger Tattoos for Men 14

Galloping Horses Finger Tattoos

I like this collection of different tattoos along the side of the client’s fingers. Each tattoo features a black ink horse design at a different galloping stage, reminiscent of simple frame animation. The idea is that finger movement – tapping, for example – will make the horse look like it’s running across the client’s fingers.

Bold Black Traditional Finger Tattoo Collection

“Bold will hold.” This bold, traditional-style tattoo series utilizes solid, thick black ink and negative space across both hands. There are various classic images – a nail, a simple rose, a spider and web, a cross, and a butterfly – and two tattoos that look like rings. I like how the finger tattoos and barbed wire form part of a larger, bold black piece incorporating both hands that mesh with other blackwork along the client’s forearms.

Black and Gray “Cybernetics” Finger Tattoos

This hand and fingers tattoo is made to give the client a cyborg-like biomechanical hand. The piece features precise linework detail and complementary shading patterns that brilliantly encapsulate the concept of cybernetics. Interestingly, the client decided against incorporating his previous ring finger tattoo into the new design instead of working around it.

Finger Tattoos for Men 17

Men’s Rope Ring Finger Tattoo

This men’s finger tattoo features a simple knotted rope instead of a conventional ring. I like the crisp, minimalistic style. The use of gray wash and white highlights to color the piece also look clean, although the tattoo will likely need retouching to keep it fresh as it ages.

Finger Tattoos for Men 18

Abstract Flow Palm and Finger Tattoos

The artist describes This killer concept tattoo as an abstract flow design. I love how it turns away from traditional norms by incorporating the ‘other’ side of the fingers and palm of the client’s hand. Due to natural wear and tear and skin regeneration, the tattoo will inevitably need to be refreshed regularly, but the design is exciting enough to warrant the extra maintenance!


Finger Tattoos for Men 19

“Houd Vast” and Asterisks Finger Tattoo for Men

Houd Vast (or hold fast in English) is one of the most old-school motifs in tattoo art, tracing back to sailors of the late 18th century (and probably further). For sailors – the OGs of tattoo art as we know it – to hold fast to the ship’s rigging was often a matter of life and death. One slip, and you were heading to a watery grave. The letters inked across the skin of each hand are a reminder to grip life tightly while you can.

Black and Red Square Men’s Finger Tattoos

These simple red and black square tattoos extend the client’s entire piece. The tattoo starts with the word ‘stuck’ along the wrist and also incorporates a red wash, realistic human eye. The squares are unremarkable, yet they are more interesting when treated as part of the whole red-and-black colored, abstract concept.

Finger Tattoos for Men 21

1999 Script Finger Tattoos

This simple graffiti-style script tattoo shows off the number 1999. My best guess is that the ink commemorates the client’s birth year. The design is a good mix of bold ink and negative space, high on the fingers. It should remain vibrant for a long time as it ages.

Finger Tattoos for Men 22

Hate Love Lettering Tattoo on Man’s Fingers

Hate love is an old-school tattoo idea once popular with 1 %ers, prisoners, and sailors. With the rise in visible ink, love-hate now represents duality, contrast, and opposition. I love the clean, solid old English font choice and the restrained placement of each letter between sets of knuckles.

Finger Tattoos for Men 23

Elegant M lettering tattoo on Man’s Fingers

This is an excellent fine-detail finger tattoo of the letter M. It’s delivered simply and elegantly, with enough strength in the application that it should hold up well over time. Even if it doesn’t age well, the design is small enough that a re-touch won’t cost much in time or money.

Finger Tattoos for Men 24

Playbill Lettering Men’s Finger Tattoos

Another black ink script tattooed across the fingers, although this one differs in font choice and size. The tattoo spells out “East West Home Best,” a reminder that home is where the heart is. The piece uses a solid, western playbill font that works nicely in two sets across the client’s fingers. Each letter’s placement between knuckles keeps the words well-spaced and easily read.

Finger Tattoos for Men 25

Vine and Leaves Finger and Hand Tattoos

Only 10% of this leaf and vine tattoo is on the client’s finger, but I like the tasteful black ink application and the way the artist has used the client’s musculature to place the design (which starts on the forearm). Alternating the leaves between patches of light shading and distinct linework is an excellent style choice in an otherwise simple piece.


Finger Tattoos for Men 26

Minimalist Blue Ink Finger Tattoo

This tiny blue finger tattoo is smaller than a postage stamp and makes a flower silhouette using negative space to offset the blue ink. It’s an interesting concept, but I’m unsure how it will age. Will the tattoo retain its pattern or morph into a blob as it fades and loses sharpness?

Finger Tattoos for Men 27

Alternative Lettering “Rock” Tattoo

I like the alternative lettering to spell the word “rock” on this man’s fingers. It’s an excellent, unique tattoo idea that applies strong blackwork fundamentals, resulting in crisp, neatly etched lettering. The black ink will hold well, and there is plenty of room for other tattoos and body art should the client wish to go that route.

Finger Tattoos for Men 28

Bold Black Ink Tattoos

This series of blackwork patterns on the fingers make up part of a much larger tattoo that starts on the client’s forearm. I like the thick, solid black ink and the flow of each image. My one concern is how the straight line will hold over time, given that they cover the wrinkled part of his knuckles at either end.


Finger Tattoos for Men 29

Neo-Tribal Sigil Tattoos on Man’sFingers

This collection of neo-tribal finger tattoos includes numerous standard flash designs, such as a heart, moon, spider, lightning bolts, stars, and Christian crosses. The flash finger tattoos carry on from the blackwork sigils and patterns on the man’s hand and wrist. I like that they’ve been applied with a freehand style yet are strong and bold.

Finger Tattoos for Men 30

Solid Ink Lettering Men’s Finger Tattoos

Another script tattoo that spells out “lost soul.” It features a clean, solid old English font choice and the restrained placement of each letter. In French, the word ‘sou’ is a slang term for pocket change, so three letters on the left hand’s fingers are tattooed with solid red ink to stand out.

Finger Tattoos for Men 31

Lucky 13 Finger Tattoo

I like the golfer’s take on a traditional lucky 13 tattoo, where using the ‘bad luck’ number means oncoming ill luck will slide right past. The pin placement on the thumb is excellent, as are the shading and white highlight effects supporting the black ink. The unique finger tattoo is worth periodically re-touching to keep it looking compelling and fresh.

Finger Tattoos for Men 32

Complex Line Art Men’s True Love Tattoo

For this tattoo, the complex font spells out “true love” in large script high on each finger of both hands. The design is bold and well etched, using as much space between knuckles as possible. I like the flared accents and artistic devices used to make the script, although it could have been created in a way that’s easier to read.
