Best place to put a tattoo?

I want to get three words from one of my favorites quotes tattooed. It's eight letters total.

I've narrowed it down to: the back of my neck, across the left shoulder, or left shoulder blade.

Anyone have a tattoo on any of these places? Love it? Hate it?

Re: Best place to put a tattoo?

  • I have heard neck hurts and so does the middle of your back, everyone is different though it really depends on your pain tolarance. I have a tattoo on my upper right arm and one on my chest above my heart, the one on my arm didn't hurt at all, the chest one hurt a little bit though.

  • I have one tattoo and it's on my right shoulder blade. Really didn't hurt at all and it's in a spot that is very easily covered by most clothing, yet still can be seen when you're in a tank top or swimsuit.
  • I have one between my shoulder blades.  It didn't hurt too bad at all for me.  I like that it is covered up if need be but when in a tank top or shirt that is kind of low in the back it usually shows.

    I've never seen a tattoo on a woman that didn't make her look cheap.  Don't do it.

  • I have 8 tattoos. The one on my shoulder blade hurt the least, the one on my foot, the most. It boils down to where ever you have the least fat and most bone is where it will hurt the most. So if you have bony shoulders like I do, that would probably hurt as would the neck. I'll be honest though, everywhere hurts, it just depends on your pain tolerance. Obviously it didn't hurt me too much, I keep going back for more LOL

    This. Sorry, but I agree.

    Yes

  • I am not a big fan of tattoos, but I think they can be done tastefully and I understand people wanting certain tattoos of extreme symbolic importance (99% of tattoos don't fit that though, lol) Anyway, I would say the best place would be where 1) you can easily hide it if you want/need to, and 2) A place that as you age won't stretch/sag too much.

  • I could not disagree with the cheap comment more. I agree if someone gets a tweety bird tatoo on her ankle- ew.  I strongly feel that is a gross over generalization.

     

    Some of us women have been through epic things in our lives, like WM, and feel the PERSONAL need to document these things on their bodies. It's therapy for some of us. Most of you wouldn't *get* it anyway.

    Honestly, anyone who would judge someone else for inking their own body is lame.

    ...but then again this is just mho.

     

    WM- what are you getting? Words? What about on your inner bicep- so you can't see it when your arm is down? Or on our rib cage going down?

  • THIS IS NOT MY SISTER'S TATTOO

    However, this is similar to the location of hers, except hers is closer to the knee pit. ;)

    she has the word 'Rescue' there in script.

    Pretty much this. I have a very small tattoo of my astrological sign on my hip. Unless I'm wearing a bathing suit, no one sees it.

  • Actually, I want this one, but in a different font.

  • Aw, c'mon. My tattoo is very meaningful to me. See?

  • I want to get one on the inside of my arm, right above the elbow.  I like that spot because its easily hid by a shirt or when your arm is at your side.  And I can easily see it.  I wouldn't want a tattoo on my back that I could never see.  The only thing holding me back is how much that will hurt, the skin is pretty thin there...it scares me...

  • I have mine on the back of my left shoulder.  It's nice because it's hidden unless I'm wearing a tank top or bathing suit, but I somewhat wish I'd put it somewhere I could see it more.  I got it for me to remind me of what's important to me, but I often forget I have it.  No idea where, but I'm trying to figure out where I want my next one so that I can see it more, but it's still easily hidden for work and other things.

    Is this your constant reminder to spay and neuter your pets? ;) I am not really one for tattoos but do like the idea of commemorating something that is meaningful to you. I also like the idea of placing it somewhere that you can hide it if need be :).

  • I agree that a tatoo can be tastefully done. I am considering getting a small one myself.  For me, I would want somewhere that would be covered up for work.  For that reason I would rule out the back of the neck b/c I love to wear my hair in a ponytail at work sometimes.

    I like the back of the shoulderblade, or across your hipbone if you want to see it.  Just please do not do what my hubby refers to as the 'tramp stamp' (lower back), lol!

  • And to answer the question, my next tattoo will probably on the back of my neck.

    Really? A tattoo makes a woman look cheap? ::insert big old eye roll here::

  • I would love to get one on my foot (although it would hurt a lot).  I don't know what I would get but would want something really meaningful - and I can't come up with anything right now.  LOL!  I would want something that would symbolize strength, perseverance and balance. 

     

    GL and post pics when you decide!

  • If I wasn't such a fecking wuss I would already have one on my foot. I want one, but I'm terrified.

    Tats are sexy. Of course, as long as there is no Bob Barker or Tweety Bird involved.

    You take my ovaries, I take your yarns.
  • One of my good friends has her kids' names on her wrist.  it is on the top, but is easily covered/hidden with her watch/bracelets. On her it looks great. My BFF has one that is a frog/rain forest scene that nearly covers her entire back - not too many people see it, but it is awesome.  

    If it is something the is especially meaningful to you, (like a quote) I think it should be somewhere you will see it.   

    Posh's looks cool, but I just don't get the idea of putting one on the back of your neck - especially something like kids' names or a RIP one.  But, I have none, so what do I know? lol

     

     

  • I <3 JM. I think that might be my tattoo!!! Where should I put it? On my butt? BTW, did you guys (FB friends) see the meaningful tattoo I'm getting? It's awesome.

  • Let me guess: you tattoo disapprovers don't drink and look down heavily upon people who cuss. You probably call it "using language." Am I right? I am, I know it. Lame!
