The Best and Worst Places To Get A Tattoo On Your Body

While you would get a tattoo anywhere on the body, it is better to know that some areas are not actually ideal for tattoos, particularly if you worry about it stretching or fading in the future. The key to tattoos’ longevity is how much sun it might receive. This means you should choose an area that is often covered by your clothes to keep it lasting longer. Also, it might be more painful to have a tattoo on some areas than the others.
With that in mind, here are some the best and worst places to get a tattoo on your body.

Best Places To Get A Tattoo

1. Inner Arm
If you are out in the sun a lot then you should avoid getting a tattoo on the outer arm. Instead, the inner arm might be a more protected area which is less immune to sun exposure. Without the direct UV rays, the ink of your tattoos will stay fresh for years.

2. Wrist
Another great area for having a tattoo, especially a smaller one, is your wrist. A small rose on this part, for example, does not only enhance visual appeal but also show lots of power and strength.

3. Outer collarbone
If you have always wanted a tattoo on the upper chest, then it might be a good idea to have it on your outer collarbone. This part tends to be covered by scarves and shirts, thus minimizing the exposure to the sun. Also, your outer collarbone won’t stretch a lot over time which plays an important role in keeping your beautiful tattoo over time.

4. Lower back
The lower back is a cool place to get a tattoo, especially if you want to have a large piece. The main benefit of this is that you could hide the artwork easily when needed. Also, this curvy area can beautifully accentuate feminine features.

The Worst Places To Get A Tattoo

1. Abdomen
The abdomen is obviously the worst place to have a tattoo because it can stretch and change the shape frequently when you lose or gain weight. This is especially true for pregnant women. Even when you moisturize constantly, the tattoo can still wrap and blow out as the results of the skin stretching.

2. Inner ear
A tattoo in the inner ear might look great when it is first done. However, it can be painful during the process and might result in some issues. Also, this area doesn’t maintain ink well and will make the lines to blur quickly after a few years. So if you don’t want to have constant touchups, it is advisable to avoid this area.

3. Feet
While you may want to get a tattoo on your feet, it will get directly exposed to constant rubbing from socks and shoes. As a result, it will tent to fade faster than other areas after a few years or even months. More importantly, bacteria and dirt might build up in the area and cause some health issues.

So, you’ve figured out what area on your body to get a tattoo and your tattoo artist does their job, the next important step is tattoo aftercare. We recommend H2Ocean’s Extreme Tattoo Care kit.
