I am not sure where to put my tattoo, could you help me?

Recommended Posts

Hello! This will be my 3 tattoo, I already have 2 but very small. I will have this design but I am not sure where to put it, I was thinking about my shoulder blade, thigh or ribs (but i am scared about the ribs because i know is very painful) I also want a place that can be easily covered. Could you give me any suggestions, please. This is the photo of the design.

Tattoo design/placement depends on a lot of factors - your personal anatomy being a huge one. Future tattoo placement is something that should also be considered.

With that said, I like seeing pieces that curve like that on the side boob of women.

Exactly.

If you are going to put it on your ribs, will you be comfortable dressing so that people will see it (assuming you ever want people to see it)? Also, I like big pieces, as you can see from my avatar,  so I would be reluctant to put a small piece where I might want to put a big piece later.

I would think that the artist that you are going to have do the tattoo would probably give you the best advice.  In the worst scenario, they put the stencil on, you check it out and don't like it, they put it someplace else.  You could do something similar if you could print the design and move it to the different places and check it out in the mirror.

Nice design. Best of luck.

I've never understood putting a small tattoo on a big part of your body like shoulder blades. To me, that sort of thing looks like an inner bicep or back of the neck (and the nape, where the neck meets the back?) type thing, but of the options you've given, the ribs sounds best.  I'm not an artist, just giving an opinion :) 

Good luck, and enjoy your new tattoo, whatever you decide!

    • Thanks @Gingerninja !    
    • 1) You can shave or they can...I always shave myself. 🙂 2) Yes (kinda). Bring your music and earbuds. Eat. Drink. Rest up the night before. Bring snacks. Lots of sugary snacks. Six hours is a long appointment. Bring a pashima or hoodie to make yourself extra comfy. Don't forget your phone charger! 3) You are going to be stressed about your flight but you will be fine. You will be all wrapped up! 4) There will be plenty options to drink you water, coconut water, Gatorade, etc. It's not like you are pinned down.  You got this! @naturalbornchiller
    • Hello! I hope that this is the right place to ask these questions - I've already read through the entire thread and found lots of excellent information, so thank you all for that!  I'm getting my left upper thigh and half of my back tattooed in December/January, and I was wondering, if I'm not very hairy (I'm Asian so really just a tiny bit of peach fuzz), will they shave me anyway before my tattoo? I'm also wondering if anyone meditates to help deal with the pain?  This is my first large tattoo (I have 2 fairly small ones already) and after reading through the back tattoo thread, I'm a little worried.  I already meditate now and practice breathing techniques, but I want to be as prepared as possible.   I have to travel for my tattoo (1.5 hour flight each way) and for my first session for the outline (6 hours scheduled), I have booked my flight in and out on the same day - was this a silly move?   Last question that might seem really dumb - if the majority of my tattoo will be on my back, I imagine I'll be lying down on my front a lot so I was wondering if I should get a straw to drink water from?
