There are many types of wrist tattoos including stars, words, and wrist bands.

If you are currently thinking about getting a wrist tattoo there are a few things to keep in mind. Most of the care that a wrist tattoo needs isn’t much different from any other tattoo. But, because of the location it may need a little extra attention because the hands are a part of the body that is used constantly, so it may be more likely to get dirt in it. The first thing to keep in mind is that the wrist area is covered with a thin layer of skin with very little muscles under it. As such the pain will probably be more intense than any other areas of the body. The second thing is that wrist tattoos take a longer time to heal then say, a chest or arm tattoo. Since it is one of the most exposed areas of the body, you might need to do some ‘refurbishing’ of the design after a few years, if you want it to retain its sharpness of design. And the final consideration that you need to make before getting a wrist tattoo is the design factor. Almost a quarter of the people with wrist tattoos regret their decision later. So you must take an informed decision about its design, so you do not regret it later.
