An arm tattoo of a man is regarded as an expression of toughness. Arm tattoos are very common among men and the arm also a very common place to get tattoo along with the lower back. For centuries tattooing has been done on people's arms. A tattoo on the arm can be easily seen by anyone, so it's important to select a design that you will not regret. Some of the most popular celebrities with arm tattoos are Tila Tequila, David Beckham and Colin Farrell. An advantage of getting an arm tattoo is that it's not very hard to select a design for an arm tattoo from the enchantingly feminine floral bands to the barbed designs, you will have many options when trying to select a design. Arm tattoos never get old and are always considered very trendy.
Designs like Tribal, Angel, Star, Heart, Flames are ideal for an arm tattoo. But as mentioned earlier there are many options when it comes to an arm tattoo. A lot of men select symbols and pictures that signify strength and masculinity. Another advantage is that its not difficult to show off your tattoo on the arm or to cover it up, you can easily cover it up with a sleeved shirt if it is on the upper arm. But its always important to select a design that has a certain meaning that says something about you or about your personality.Before going to the tattoo artist you should also decide on which part of your arm it's going to be, whether it's the lower arm or the upper arm. Getting it on the upper arm would be ideal if you have a bulky bicep and its also a lot cheaper than getting a tattoo on some other body part like the chest, lower back or the foot. One factor a lot of tattoo fans forget is the pain, it can be quite painful especially if it is on upper arm, so you should be prepared for a bit of pain. And if it is going to be an arm band tattoo then tell the artist if you want the arm band to connect. Some people get arm band tattoos on the upper arm without connecting it from the inside since it's a little painful when tattooing the inside of the arm. Tribal, Celtic and barbed wire designs have been the most popular when it comes to arm band tattoos.
