Best Places For Your First Tattoo

Thinking about getting your first tattoo? This can be very exciting yet nerve-wracking!

There are several questions you must ask yourself before you get new ink which will ultimately help you decide where you would like your new ink to be. Below is some useful information that can help you on your journey.

  • The first and most important question to ask yourself is, “What should I get”? It is highly recommended to think about the design you want for at least a month. Deciding on your design within a matter of minutes can lead to regret. Always remember, a tattoo is permanent, and although there are options to cover it up or remove it, the scar will always remain.
  • Most people overthink the meaning of their first tattoo. Our advice is, get what you like! Your new tattoo does not have to be meaningful and detrimental to your life choices.
  • Tattoos are not meant to be cheap, they are an investment. Always do your research on the artist and verify they specialize on the design. Do not go to any local tattoo parlor or garage just because you were quoted a cheaper price–if the price you were given is out of your budget, take a step back and save up. Having the mindset of getting new ink with no care on who does it is a recipe for disaster.

Now that we’ve talked about some of the most important topics, let’s talk about the areas where your ink can go:

Inner Arm

Although this place is painful because of the sensitivity, this area can be easily covered or flaunted. Depending on your area of work and personality, if you choose to show it off or conceal it, this place works.

Upper Arm

This area is one of the least painful of the body due to all the tissue. It can also be concealed easily.

This meaty area is a fan fav as there is a lot of room to work on and can also be concealed.

There is no other way to put this, it will hurt! The rib cage is incredibly sensitive but this area has no limits on your creativity.

Wrist tattoos are very attractive but can also be painful. This is the least common where it is recommended on getting your first tattoo as it is not easily hidden and any regrets will forever be in plain eyesight.
