Upper Arm and Bicep Most Popular Today
Many individuals, especially novice or first-time tattoo wearers, choose to have the arm tattoo on the upper part and not the lower. With the transition of the military's viewpoints on tattoo designs, no longer is the forearm the most popular spot for tattoos these days. It is the upper arm or the bicep that gets most of the attention since this is a great size palette and location for those that want to wear short sleeves and still not advertise their tattoo inked up skin.
Vietnam and Laos
With so many designs and unique coloring patterns available in the world of inking today, the ability to create anything under the sun is now a possibility. The largest numbers of tattoos that appear on arms throughout North America are on the left upper arm. The reason for this, no one knows, yet it is the number one spot for the inking of America. The world is another concern as the different cultures that have different belief systems in the world see the different spots on the body that needs to be addressed. While in Far East Asia and in countries such as Vietnam and Laos, tattoo designs are not seen as anything wrong but a great religious phenomenon. Having tattoos is a sign of wealth and prestige while in the Far eastern region of the world. This goes hand-in-hand with the total number of people being inked-up in the Southeast Asian countries, standing at an estimated 5% in 2010.
Mom Tattoos Popular Always
The upper arm and the shoulder area are great spots for the people who prefer classic tattoo styles. These are usually the larger pieces of self-contained and tattoo areas. Because of this large surface area and the fact that a great deal of that area is essentially flat and hairless, it is a great spot for a portrait of someone's mom or maybe their little baby girl Angelica. The lower arm is a bolder choice but these too can easily display large pieces such as works of art of gothic lettering and flowers and vines. In the end everything is left up to the imagination and the person who is going to wear this work of art on their upper arm and that person is you!
