    Arm tats or leg tats?

    Advertisements
    Which do you like more? How do you pick?

    In dream land, I'd like a sleeve. But with the future career I'm working for, that wouldn't be appropriate. So half-sleeves and thigh tats are what's going through my mind. I'd like something like this soon, somewhere:

    I have a tattoo on my calf. I only have one tattoo on my wrist. My tattoos have to be something I can cover and I don't want to wear long sleeves for the rest of my life.

    I love both. I have a quarter sleeve and will likely end up sleeving my left forearm (already have a tattoo there). I have ink on my upper right arm, too. I've thought about adding to that one, too. Adding more to the inner part of the arm.

    I have a calf piece and planning on two thigh pieces for early next year.

    Exactly. I'd even like a tat on the top of my shoulder, if that makes sense (something like this http://25.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_mb...gcz4o1_500.jpg), and that even seems like a pain because it could peek out of shirts easily

    I prefer arm tattoos for some reason. I can't really explain why, leg tattoos have just never really appealed to me. I have wanted a sleeve forever, but I feel like my arms are too fat for it.

    Are thigh pieces hard to maintain? Do they stretch/sag/fade/etc. easily? Totally not familiar with that part of the body.

    Arm. I hate leg tats. I've always wanted a sleeve but I'm not ballsy enough to take the risk of possibly hating it later in life.

    Singular? Neither. Otherwise, I prefer sleeves. I prefer singular tattoos to be on the abdomen or neck.

    be cool.

    I thought thigh tattoos were a little... weird, until I got mine. It's my favorite spot, ever.
    if i never see you again i will always carry you
    inside outside

    on my fingertips and at brain edges

    and in centers
    centers of what i am of what remains

    That's good to know! I always thought they were weird too, but lately they've just seemed SOOO much better to me! Did that sucker hurt?
