Have you been considering getting a forearm tattoo? Or possibly just wondering what forearm tattoo really are and what they involve? Well very basically a forearm tattoo is any tattoo design that covers a large portion of the arm from the wrist to the elbow. These tattoos can come in a variety of sizes from a half sleeve and even a quarter sleeve, to individual tattoo designs. It all depends on the size. Getting a forearm tattoo can be a big commitment and should probably not be done without proper and careful consideration first. If you are thinking about getting a forearm tattoo you want to carefully consider the design, the amount of time that it will take, and the amount of money it will cost. You can get anything from animal designs to symbols and tribal designs. Or you can get a forearm tattoo that involves getting flames done, as in the photo. This motif was once popular among hot rod cars and now you can get you arm customized in the same way. You can also consider mixing and matching styles to come up with a forearm tattoo that is specifically unique to your personal style. The choice is up to you.
Why do so many men choose to get forearm tattoos nowadays? Well, the first and foremost reason has to be that just about any design made into a forearm tattoo will look pretty damn good. It’s really due to the way that a male’s forearm is shaped. There are a lot of muscles in that part of the body and if the male does any work with his hands, then these muscles are probably pretty toned. So, if you place a design there it will create a "ripple" effect. When the guy opens or closes his hands then the forearm tattoo will appear to move. I have a dragon tattooed on my forearm and every time I open my hand it looks as if it’s ready to fight!! Another thing that makes this part of the body a great place to put a design is the large variety of options you have available. You see, the forearm is kind of like a cylinder, so any animal or tribal design will fit perfectly. Unlike the chest which happens to be more of a flat surface, and one that has obstacles in the way, namely the nipples. With a forearm tattoo you can place a three dimensional design that wraps around it. And it looks really great.
