Tattoo Body Areas

Chopper TattooDeciding where to site a new tattoo, along with choosing a design to ink, are the biggest decisions to make when planning any new tattoo. Each area of the body can be thought of as an inking canvas with its own unique suite of attributes. This section of the Premium Tattoo Designs website is dedicated to highlighting the various attributes of the most popular tattoo body areas.

When choosing a body area to ink, some of the most important attributes to consider are:

Size:
The size of the body area has a huge bearing on the size, shape and complexity of the tattoo designs that it can accommodate.

Exposure:
Body areas that are harder to conceal may not be appropriate sites for a new tattoo as many employers still tend to frown upon visible tattoos. It is also important to consider how easy it will be to show off your tattoo when away from formal situations. Another factor to consider is how much exposure to sunlight a particular body area receives as direct sunlight can cause colours to fade.

Pain:
Bony areas are more painful to ink than fleshy, muscular parts of the body. Larger tattoo designs inked on larger body areas, or across multiple body areas, will have more associated pain because they take longer to ink.
