I’ll start by saying that tattoos are a really personal thing, individual to each different person and filled with various meanings. I’ll finish by saying that no matter how personal your tattoo idea is, there’s no doubting that there are good places to get it and bad places to get it! How about taking some advice from professionals before making a decision that is permanent? Here are the six worst places for tattoos according to tattoo artists.
It’s no surprise that when you get pregnant, your stomach takes a bit of a beating! There’s nothing wrong with that, childbirth is a beautiful thing, but in terms of paying a lot of money for a detailed tattoo, you might be disappointed with the stretched effect.
2. Crease Lines
Anywhere on your body that has excessive crease lines isn’t ideal for tattoos. Things like wrists, armpits, and joints can cause the tattoo to crack in the healing process, and can cause line damage.
To be honest, your fingers are so small in area than any tiny tattoo you get on them will be faded and fuzzy in a matter of years. Even the most talented and light-handed tattoo artists aren’t comfortable tattooing fingers.
Foot tattoos are the most notorious for fading over time because of the excessive sock and shoe wearing. It’s not a huge deal to get them topped up every now and then, but it’s something to think about if you want to keep paying for the same tattoo over and over again.
5. Rubbing Areas
Any area that is prone to rubbing against your clothing is never going to be an ideal spot for the healing process. I’m talking inner thighs, armpits, and bra strap shoulder areas. Not only will the healing be awkward, but the risk of fading is also higher.
6. Inner Ear
The inside of your ear really doesn’t hold ink very well, so something that might look cool immediately after will be very likely to blue quickly. Not to mention the crazy pain!
