If you're thinking of getting a tattoo you may not know where you want to get it yet. However there are special meanings of tattoo placement so if you know why you want a tattoo in the first place this can help you figure out where you should put that tattoo. Where ever you decide to put your new tattoo can have as much if not more meaning than the tattoo itself.

Meanings of Tattoo Placement

Chest - Tattoos that are put on your chest are often a frequently a representation of love and devotion, because it is close to your heart. This is a good place to put your kid's names or maybe the name of a loved on that has past. I don't recommend putting girlfriend's names though. I was young and dumb once and did that. But the positive side is that if I had never done that I wouldn't have the cover up that I have now. My favorite tattoo.

Finger - The most common finger to get tattooed is the ring finger on their left. This tattoo is a permanent sign of the love between a man and a woman that can worn with or without the ring.

Forearm - In the past few years the forearm has grown in popularity with men. It is thought that a tattoo on the forearm represents toughness and strength. I've got 3 on my forearm and waiting to get another one. Great place for guys to put their kid's names.

Neck - Tattoos on a persons neck usually mean that they are daring, risky, and make bold decisions. This is because your neck will most likely always be exposed to all to see. It doesn't matter what you wear everyone will be able to see it. The neck is also one of the most painful places to get a tattoo. Usually with symbols or the names of loved ones.

Back - People that get tattoos on their back are sometimes considered mysterious or maybe even shy. They are not usually visible unless you stretch or wear revealing clothing. Sometimes people will get a tattoo on their back at an ending stage in their life. This shows that they have put that part of their lives behind them and are moving on.

As you can see, there are different meanings of tattoo placement. But the meanings of tattoo placement for women can also mean a totally different thing then the meanings of tattoo placement for men.
