When getting inked, the decision doesn't just stop at the design you're getting or which tattoo shop you're getting it done—you also have to consider the placement of your new tatt! Remember that whichever spot you choose, your body art is permanent so you must think long and hard about its position.

That said, if you're still undecided on the placement of your tatt, allow us to help you. Below, we list down the most popular areas of your body to get inked on:

  1. Wrist

    The wrist is one of the most popular places to get inked on, despite it being a little painful (especially when it's closer to your hand). Though the skin on this spot is thinner compared to the rest of the arm, you can be reassured that it will be over in a jiffy since the surface area is a lot smaller!

  2. Below the collarbone

    A tattoo placed right below the collarbone is ~perfect~ if you like wearing tank tops or tubes.

  3. Inner arm

    If you want your tattoo to be easily visible, have it placed on your inner arm. A lot of people report that this place doesn't hurt *too* much.

  4. Ribcage

    We've all heard the warnings of ~seasoned~ tattooed people to not get anything that's close to the bone inked on, but if your heart is really set on it, then go for it! It might be painful, but you'll get a dainty tatt that looks great with your beach OOTD!

  5. Ankle

    Ankle tattoos may look ~*delicate*~, but the process of getting one will hurt a lot since it's a very bony area. This fact doesn't stop people from getting it inked on, though!

  6. Forearm

    Another popular body part to get tattoed on is the forearm. The area isn't too fleshy or soft, making it a great spot for your first ink.

  7. Finger

    If you're into small tattoos, your fingers are a prime spot for your first ink. Fair warning, though, this one will hurt *a lot* since there isn't much flesh that acts as a cushion. The pro? You'll get a cute, dainty ink that can easily be hidden!
