As aesthetically pleasing as tattoos may be, they are also a life-time commitment. So aside from settling on the perfect design to get, you also have to figure out where exactly on your body you'd want to be permanently inked.

If you're not the type to flaunt your tats (tattoos can hold very personal stories for some people) or you just want to keep things low-key as a newbie, you can go the subtle route by choosing a tattoo placement that can easily be hidden or concealed.

Need ideas? These celebrities have the most subtle tattoo placements you can use as pegs! 

P.S. Different areas may bring different levels of pain, so it's best to read up on how much it would hurt for your chosen tattoo placement.

Low-key tattoo placements, as seen on celebs:

1. Above the elbow

Getting inked just above the elbow is just the right amount of low-key. No one would notice your ink unless your back is turned or you raise your hands!

2. On the wrist

The wrist is a popular spot for tattoos, and it's perfect for minimalist and tiny designs, too.

3. Side of the wrist

If you're not too keen on getting a tattoo directly on your wrist, you can try the side of it. You can subtly show it off when you take selfies.

4. Inside your arm

The inside of the arm is another ideal placement, especially for dainty scribbles. If you want to conceal it, you can just wear a shirt that's long enough to cover it.

5. Below the collarbone

A simple ink just below the collarbone is equal parts eye-catching and understated.

6. Side of the ribs

A tiny tat at the side of the rib area is nothing short of modest. If you want to flaunt your ink, opt for a cute crop top and you're good to go.

7. On your back

The back can be a perfect canvas for all types of inks—from minimalist designs to more intricate ones. Regardless of how big or small your tattoo is, they'd still look low-key.

8. On your finger

The pain of getting inked on your finger may not be as low-key, but if you're brave enough, there are lots of ways to get creative with a finger tattoo.
