The reasons are varied, but usually women who get tattoos prefer to tattoo flowers, stars, butterflies, roses, landscapes or bracelets. The inner part of the arm is also an excellent option, do not forget it.
The arm is also a perfect place to make tattoos with phrases or names. It is advisable to use fairly simple and easy-to-read letters, it will give you a very original aesthetic.
Women usually prefer to make a single word, to convey a clear message about their personality, to give it a high meaning. Men tend to opt for more aesthetic designs.
Types of tattoos on the arm
First are the most classic, which are the tattoos on the arm that go from the lower part of the shoulder to the elbow. During the 90s tribal tattoos were used in that area, since they were very popular.
There are also the arm and shoulders, which start from the neck or mid-trapeze, shoulder and arm. They are very large tattoos that will take too many hours of sessions to finish them. Especially if they are in color and are very loaded.
There are the half sleeves, which take part of the forearm. They look great on men and give you a tough guy look. But it is also applicable to women.
Any type of small tattoo in the area of the wrists remains very discreet. The most daring may opt for hands to tattoo smaller things.
And finally we have the sleeves. In these cases they are made up to the forearm and the wrist. It is always good that you decide in time what type of tattoo you are going to choose, so the design is projected better.
The full-arm tattoos look great even in color. But personally I do not like tattoos excessively loaded with ink. Since it is much more aesthetic to play also with the skin tone itself as if it were one more color.
One of the most popular questions is:
Does tattooing on the arm hurt?
The pain tolerance of each person will be relative, since all tattoos hurt. Therefore, an absolute response can not be given. But the truth is that, like the thighs, the arms are an area of many muscles. At least in a general way, and where there are fewer nerve endings. Because of this, it is one of the places in the body that hurts the least.
Perhaps because it is easier to endure the pain than in other areas is the preferred place for most people to get a tattoo. Although the most painful areas are always the most sensitive and those that have less meat. So the inner part of the arm and the armpits are painful areas. Also the most bony area of the shoulder and elbow are very painful areas only suitable for brave who are willing to endure it. If you’re going to get a big tattoo on your arm you know what you’re exposing yourself to.
