Areas of your body you WON'T tattoo

Recommended Posts

I meant the pads of my fingers. I once watched a friend do a tattoo from centre of a palm, up the inside of the thumb, to within a hair's width of the thumbnail bed.

I have no desire to feel that. I think he almost saw God. or cursed him.

It healed pretty good eventually though.

reading that made my stomach shiver.

I've had a tentative appointment for about a year to get the underside of my finger done. I was going to do a sewing needle with the point stopping at the end of my finger. I've been to scared to keep any of the dates/times I was supposed to actually do it Hahhahaha. And of course during any down time at the shop I've always got an excuse like I haven't eaten yet or I'm too tired

i used to only do necks and hands on heavily tattooed people or tattooers, but it's so common now, i just do 'em.

same. at this point with the army being allowed to do necks and hands i would be shooting myself in the foot if i didn't.

Armpits! Gah, when it even gets close I get the heebie jeebies. I don't even have a job right now, but when I am done with school I plan on working in a profession where it wouldn't be appropriate to have any visible ones. Since I can't wear a suit and tie, I am quite limited. Also, pretty sure I'll never do the boobs.

I would get my hands and neck tattooed but I do not work in the tattoo industry and I live in a super conservative town. I think it would makes things pretty hard for me. Maybe some day that will chance but for now I am ok with out it. Its also nice to be able to cover everything up and not have people bug me. I tend to wear long sleeves more often than not.

I though about getting my scalp tattooed a while ago because I could easily grow my hair back and cover it if i wanted but my hairline is slowly receding. I also have developed alopecia in the past few years, so I have random patches of hair fall out of my scalp/beard.

yeah i usually wear long sleeves and pants as well... sometimes it's nice to walk down the road without 10 idiots asking you about being "all tatted up"

going to the beach is a whole different game now that i have a backpiece and stuff on my legs... mother fuckers flip out like they've never seen a chick before...

No back-I want to be able to see my tattoos!

Do you also not care about other things that can't be seen with a mirror, like your hair or your face? :)

That gives you about half as much space for tattoos as the rest of us.

I hear this quite a lot though. After a couple of sleeves, chest and legs, the blank space on the back starts to look like an empty space between tattoos instead of clean skin.

There is a client of the shop who is in his mid 50's been getting tattooed since he was a teen and has quite the collection of good tattoos. Not only does he not have a back piece because he can't see it but he swears once he turns 60 he is done getting tattooed. Considering he is almost out of space on the rest of his body I have a feeling he will end up with a back piece eventually.

His dad on the other hand had one tattoo done during the war and was subsequently shot in the same spot a few weeks later. He came got his second tattoo which was a betty boop with the name Betty below it (for his new girlfriend) at the age of 82 earlier this year.
