There is a general opinion at Tattoo Stylist that forearm tattoos are a great choice for anybody looking to get a tattoo.
Forearm is a very versatile spot and can make all kinds of tattoos look good – different styles, sizes and meanings.
But, as with any other tattoo, when choosing a forearm tattoo design, you should consider multiple factors.
Given that forearm has an irregular shape, that works best with any fully vertical or fully horizontal designs.
That said, figuring out how the design will lay on your forearm is an important first step towards your forearm tattoo.
Finally, make sure you protect your tattoo well in sun, using protection or wearing UV clothing.
Here are some of our thoughts to consider when thinking of forearm tattoos:
💪 Forearm tattoos are a great place to get your first tattoo because, as there’s a lot of muscle and nerve endings, so forearm tattoos are less painful than others.
💪 Time needed for a forearm tattoo depends on the size and complexity.
💪 While they’re not as immediately obvious as hand and neck tattoos, forearm tattoos are still relatively on-display for the world to see compared to something like an upper arm or back tattoo.
💪 In summer, make sure to also apply sunscreen on your forearm tattoos in case they are healing – especially color tattoos.
