Some people do not really care about placement of their tattoos and just happy to slap them anywhere on their body and be cool with it.
Personally I think the placement of a tattoo plays a massive role in how good your tattoo is going to look.
You really have to put a lot of thoughts into where your tattoo is going to look the best and you can’t just rely on your tattoo artist to tell you where to put it.
First thing you need to decide whether you are going to share your tattoo with people. If you want to put it somewhere where you can show it easily without having to put too much effort into it then you might want to put it on your arms or on your lower legs. If you’re thinking about putting your tattoo in a place that is more discreet and just for you then you might put it on your abdominal area or on your back.
It is also important the type of tattoo that you want to get and it will determine the best place for it.
Think of your body as lots of small canvases, from one joint to the next one is one canvas. For example your wrist to your elbow is a canvas, your elbow to your shoulder is a canvas, and your neck to your hips is a canvas. So, once you get the rough design idea of your tattoo, you have to think about the general outlining shape of it like is it going to be round, long, thin, square etc. Once you get a rough idea of the outline then you can match the shape of it up to a canvas that’s on your body.
Also think about your future plans for getting more tattoos before committing a canvas to a whole tattoo. It happens really often that a person will commit to a space on their body for a tattoo and then a few months down the track regret to take up that whole space just for this one tattoo. If you’re getting a small tattoo like something really tiny then don’t put it in the middle of a large canvas. Later on if you decide to get a bigger tattoo in that spot then you will have to either work around this tiny tattoo or you have to cover it up.
You also have to take into consideration that your skin is constantly moving as you move. So just as an example you might get a long tattoo on your forearm but before getting the tattoo put the stencil on your forearm and move your wrist to see how the design moves with it. It’s not a big deal but some people get a little bit annoyed by it. So it’s just something you should take into consideration.
