A vast majority of men who have tattoos have them on their arms. Sailors who used to set sail across the seas would almost always get a tattoo put on their arm (although the chest was a favored spot as well). What makes the arm the most popular place to get a tattoo? Mainly because it is one of the most visible places you can put a tattoo, and because it’s a fairly good-sized canvas to tattoo. Arm tattoos can be shown when you want them to be, or they can be hidden when you want them to be, making them perfect for people who work in the business industry.
When you get an arm tattoo, you’ll want to make sure that the tattoo that you get is not something that is so generic that it won’t be remembered by anybody. What’s the point of going through a bit of pain for a tattoo that no one will remember? Try to make sure that the tattoo that you get, especially if you’re looking at arm tattoos, is something that is memorable, which will likely mean using a design that your tattoo artist has that is not often used (and feel free to ask them how frequently they do each design you like), or getting a custom tattoo designed for yourself.
Also, make sure you have a good talk with your artist about where you want the design placed. Each section of the upper arm is a different area to tattoo and showcases something different. You may find that your design needs to be altered in order to make your arm look good. Always make sure you take a good look at the temporary design on your arm so that you can be confident that the arm tattoos that you’re going to get are perfect for your needs.
