The Best 1111 Tattoo Designs

Here are the top 1111 tattoo design ideas for you to choose from:

Minimalistic 1111 Tattoos

Do you prefer minimalistic tattoos? If so, then simply getting the number 1111 inked on your body should do the trick!

Although this is a pretty typical tattoo, there is one way that you can make it your own. This, of course, is by choosing a font that is in line with the kind of concept that you have for your tattoo.

There are so many options for you to choose from - comical font, mystical font, etc. If you are truly committed to a minimalistic style, then you can stick to four vertical lines.

Or, you can add a little bit of flair to take things up a notch. This tattoo done in the style of calligraphy can make for a simple yet elegant font tattoo.

It is a good idea to try a few different options before you settle on one design.

Most of these minimalist tattoo ideas only use black ink. If you would like to add a bit more color into your tattoo, though, you may want to consider red ink. Not only is this a vibrant shade but some cultures also consider red ink to signify good luck.

Eleven Eleven Tattoos

While you may like the concept of 1111, the number tattoo may seem a bit too mainstream for you. In this case, you can consider getting a word tattoo instead!

This kind of 1111 tattoo works well if you would like a larger tattoo or if you would like to put your own spin on the design.

Now, with a word tattoo, you once again need to think about the font. Do you want to do something simple or do you prefer a slightly more dramatic take?

Another thing that you may want to consider is the orientation of the tattoo - how the two words will be placed. You can get them side by side, in a vertical fashion, or even get a matching tattoo with someone else.

I really like this concept here - this tattoo features a word and the number. However, when they are put together, you still get 1111.

For this tattoo, the tattoo artist incorporated the eleven eleven in an infinity sign. Not only does this make for a stunning work of art, but it also provides more meaning to a beautiful tattoo.

As you are probably aware, the infinity symbol signifies forever or an unending amount of time. Therefore, when combined with your 1111 tattoo, it could signify new beginnings or good luck for the rest of your life.

Angel 1111 Tattoos

Considering that 1111 tattoos are based on angel numbers, it makes sense to get an angel-themed tattoo. So, what would this kind of 1111 tattoo look like?

Well, there are a few different tattoo ideas for you to consider here.

If you want, you can get a simple set of angel wings, with the number 1111 inscribed in between. If you want a truly stunning tattoo, then you can consider an intricate set of wings.

If you would like a beautiful message attached to your 1111 tattoo, then you can think about the term angel energy added to your design. This is a great way to put your tattoo into proper context.

At the same time, it can also be helpful to remind you that angels are watching over you or that your life already has a path - you simply need to keep moving forward.

Butterfly 1111 Tattoos

I think that this is quite a lovely tattoo. For one thing, butterflies are beautiful and delicate creatures and this really sets the tone for your tattoo design.

At the same time, butterflies carry a meaning of their own and can really add to the significance of your tattoo.

Butterflies can be associated with transformation. This is because they start off as caterpillars but after being cocooned in a chrysalis, they become a lovely winged creature.

These creatures can also be associated with freedom as they have the ability to fly away and sometimes cross a great distance.

Time 11:11 Tattoos

As you may be aware, many people consider 11:11 to be a lucky time of the day. It is believed that if you make a wish at this precise moment it will come true.

Even if you don't necessarily believe this concept, getting time-based 11:11 tattoo designs can be a great way to remind you of the wishes or dreams that you hold dearest to your heart.

In turn, this may help you to remind yourself to work on your dreams or to simply never give up. Or, if nothing else, it can be a positive tattoo for you to have.

Now, there can be two ways for you to make this kind of tattoo work - you can ask your tattoo artist for a digital or analog version.

Analog Watch 11:11 Tattoos

Do you want a beautiful and complex tattoo? If so, then you may want to have an analog watch inked on your body. This is a very classic approach to the 11:11 tattoo idea.

If you want an elegant approach but want your tattoo to be fairly small, then you can just get a watch face or a pocket watch inked on you. The key here is to pay attention to detail so that you get a more realistic-looking tattoo.

If you don't mind going all out with your tattoo, then you can even add another watch face into the mix. You can also add plenty of other details. This can include flowers, symbols, and anything else that you like.

For this kind of tattoo, you will need to show the time in analog format. This means that the big hand should be on 11 and the small hand should be just past 2.

Keep in mind that this kind of tattoo features a great deal of detail. Due to this, you are likely going to need to go to a tattoo artist who is capable of such work.

Digital Watch 11:11 Tattoos

If you would like a simpler tattoo or one with a more modern take, then consider taking the digital watch approach.

In case you want to keep the tattoo as minimalistic as possible, then you should consider the numbers outline by a frame that will depict the screen of the clock. Just remember to use the stencil font to mimic the numbers that you typically find with such clocks or watches.

Of course, if you want a more complex or intricate tattoo, then you should draw the digital watch or clock.

Star 1111 Tattoos

Would you like to add a bit of sparkle to your 1111 tattoo? If so, adding stars to the tattoo is a great way to do this!

Not only do stars help to spice up the tattoo, but it is also a good way of showing that 1111 has a bit of magic to you. In fact, these stars are a good way to remind you of the fact too!

You can work with your tattoo artist to determine what kind of stars you want to use here. You can include ones with a bit more detail or you can add the ones that look like twinkles in the sky.

Ornamental 1111 Tattoos

This is a great tattoo concept to consider if you would like a bit more of a decorative 1111 tattoo. Here, you use various repeating shapes and designs to create an ornamental pattern, alongside your 1111 design.

One of the cool things about this kind of tattoo is that it is quite easy to make it your own with the help of your tattoo artist. All you have to do is figure out which design elements you want to include. Then, you can choose a pattern that is all your own with the greatest of ease.

You can also make this tattoo as small or as large as you like, depending on where you want it to go.

Creative 1111 Tattoos

Are you looking for an 1111 tattoo that is completely outside the box? Well, then this is the category to show to your tattoo artist. This is a great option for you if you don't want any particular rhyme or reason added to your tattoo.

And, weirdly enough, this concept goes well with your 1111 tattoo. This is because 1111 can signify how you have to look for meaning in the chaos. Or, it can be a depiction of how life can be random yet meaningful all at once.
