Why sleeve is a good choice?

Statistics says that 35% of men's tattoos fall on the forearm area. So, this is not just a hype, but a real experience. And here it does not matter what color your skin is, black or white, you will definitely be able to find a suitable half-hand sketch or even band-picture for yourself.

Here are several reasons why this place is one of the best:

1. Big surface for creativity

2. Area of moderate sensitivity

3. Easy to hide with sleeves if needed

4. At the same time – easy to show

5. The injured area of the skin is quickly restored

But there are also negative sides. Placing even a small tattoo on the forearm, it must be updated more often than a big picture on the back or shoulder blade. This is due to the fact that it is enhanced mechanical action, the action of chemicals and detergents. This part of a hand in the summer is always in the sun (and for men especially), which means that the pigment is subject to more intense burnout.

What kinds of half-hand sketch are relevant?

And what kinds do you like?
And of course, then it's possible to create your own cool sketch, special and interesting. But certain kinds of half-hand pictures remain relevant beyond time. Like this:

1. Text with a sense. Some quote that once had an effect on your consciousness, whether it be a line from a favorite song or a "discovery" made by you after long conversations and reflections - can become your small guiding star. (joke – tattoo)

2. Image of animal. Of course, it is usually not about Pets, which you can see every day at home, but about your inner state. For example, a tiger or an eagle on the forearm makes some men more confident.

3. Monochrome minimalism. Strange as it may seem, but with the development of 3D tattooing and all kinds of colored ink - love for black style has not passed. Even more! Due to the spread of the ideology of minimalism nowadays, such forearm drawings have gained even greater popularity.

Last question…Is it painful?
Not too much!
Fans of collecting tattoos often spend their first experiments in the sleeve area. There are fewer nerve endings, and the process of drawing doesn't cause much pain. The procedure usually does not require anesthesia. Allergy sufferers, and there are many of them, are afraid not so much of pain as of side effects from medications. If you're afraid of making a serious picture one at a time, just start with a small sketch. You can get it done for several sessions.
