How To Determine The Best Tattoo Placement

People spend a lot of time thinking about and discussing tattoo designs but few hardly give much thought about where to place that beautiful tattoo on their body. Tattoo placement can be as important and beautiful as the tattoo itself. There are many things you might like to consider when having a tattoo engraved on your body.

The first thing you might like to think about is the reason you are having the tattoo. Some people get a tattoo as a symbol, something that reminds them of an event, of a reality they have lived or a dream that they have had. This might be personal. If you are having a tattoo for personal reasons, you may not necessarily want it to be showy. You might want to place it where it is not obvious for people to see.

The part of the body that has much importance to you, like the chest or breast area, the arms, the lower part of your back just above your hips, or the shoulders are places that you might think about when getting a tattoo. When considering options for tattoo placement you might want something that is sexy or suits your fancy.

You will need to ask yourself if the tattoo is meant to be shown or to be kept hidden. If you are a discreet person, you might like to place your tattoo in an area of the body where not just anybody can see it. This can have a very intimate dimension.

The size of the tattoo can determine the tattoo placement also. Smaller tattoos can be placed anywhere on the body while large tattoos are suited for larger, flat areas like the back or the chest. Small tattoos can fit well on the back area of the neck, the upper part of the arms and even around the most intimate and hidden areas of the body.

The tattoo design is also important. Some tattoo designs speak more eloquently when placed in certain parts of the body. Larger designs will definitely need space. But designs like small symbols, icons, or a flower can fit anywhere. The most common areas where people place tattoos are the lower back, the shoulders, the chest, the legs, the hips, the arms, the stomach and the ankles.

Besides the previously mentioned issues to think about when getting a tattoo, you will also have to consider the general feeling it gives you and what you want to communicate with it. Where you place your tattoo can also be as meaningful as the tattoo itself. If you place your tattoo on the best spot, it will not only give a beautiful, sexy look but will make you feel good when you look at it.
