Where to Place a Tattoo?



A lot of people are wondering if they should first select a right body spot to ink, or pick an amazing work of art. For me, I will always decide a perfect location to sport a tattoo before I proceed to shop for any great designs. In the end, what’s the point of selecting an angel wings artwork if you just want to wear a tattoo on your ankle, right?

But, there are also many things to think about when you are trying to decide where to locate the symbol. Below are two of the few factors that may be important to consider before making up your mind.





1. Professionalism
Do you need to cover up the design from time to time such as when you are at work or in school? Some people need to hide away their designs because it is not going to look professional to have an artwork place on their collar, or on the cheek. So, you probably need to avoid places that are too exposed. Some good locations are the back, chest, shoulders, stomach, and thigh which can easily be covered up with the right clothing.

2. Pain Factor
I’m sure you are aware that certain location of the body will hurt more than the other. Nevertheless, individuals do have different threshold of pain, but quite often the pain factor will not be the main reason in determining where to place a design on the body. For man, it may be less painful to ink on the arms, back and buttocks whereas for women it will be the thighs, shoulders, abdomen and buttocks.

By keeping these two factors in mind, take a step back and think about how you want to proceed from here. Delve into the resource of the internet to review images sported on different parts of the body and decide which area you would like to wear one. If you have some design in mind, you can put that into consideration too. Once you have made up your mind, adjourn to your favorite parlor to get one done.
