Arm tattoos can be placed in multiple manners. The design would look better based on the place you would want it. Arm tattoos can be placed on forearm, bicep, outside of the arm, shoulder or above the elbow. The placement can be based on how frequently would you want to see your tattoo or how visible would you want it to be others. Since arm is an uneven canvas, different sizes would be suitable for different places. The tattoo should look even on the skin.
Arm tattoos include simple line designs, portraits, texts like names, small minimalistic tattoos. Arm bands are growing popular all around the world. Arm bands go around the arm (360 degree). They could be floral, or maori influenced thick line tattoos.
