For anyone searching to depict a positive outlook on life, an arrow tattoo can be a great place to start. An arrow being pulled back on the bow can depict life dragging someone down, whereas the arrow being released propels them straight ahead into something new and positive.

With that being said, an arrow can only shoot forward by being pulled back, so only by going through dark times can you push yourself to better ones.

These 35 amazing arrow tattoo ideas for women showcase how creative and clever arrow tattoos can be!
