Deciding on what design or saying you want tattooed is a personal and important decision, but deciding on where that body art will go is equally as important. The decision is more than just deciding whether it will show or not, it can also express something about your personality.
Arm/Sleeve – Confidence
The most popular spot as there is plenty of room for creativity. It is easily displayed but also hidden for more professional environments. There is a toughness about it but it shows you have an understanding of the world and your place in it.
Forearm – Toughness
A strong personality that likes to show off a little. Someone who is confident in their own skin and the art displayed upon it. A popular spot for images of power and resilience.
Back/Shoulder – Artistic
The back and shoulder skin stretches making it difficult for small detail so usually this space is reserved for larger graphics. Nice, big displays that can say a lot about you and your journey through life.
Chest/heart – Introspective
Putting a tattoo over your heart, whether it be small or full chest size speaks to the importance this has in your life. You hold this symbol close to your heart and every time you see it in the mirror in the morning it reminds you of who you are.
Neck/Face – You DGAF
You just don’t give two shits who see it and what they think. You are ultra-confident and likely a bit of an exhibitionist. Which is not a bad thing.
Thigh – Unique
Becoming more common but still very distinctive. Like the bicep upper arm area there is plenty of room to be creative and yet still be hidden when you want it to be. It is something you can reveal only to the people you let close to you.
Small of the back – Sensual
Sure it’s picked up the pejorative nickname tramp stamp but it also is a spot that shows your sexual confidence and independence.
Ankle – Endearing.
You’re not in this to show off how tough you are after all, the ankle is one of the least painful areas to get inked. It’s usually something quite personal and carries an emotional attachment that shows the world a little bit about who you really are without shouting it from the rooftops.
