Most people who get a tattoo want to be able to show off their ink. This may be the reason hand tattoos are so popular. However, this location is pretty much always visible, so the decision to get a hand tattoo is one that shouldn’t be taken lightly.
Something anyone considering a hand tattoo should know is that this location is very difficult to tattoo. You really need to do your research and find a skilled artist with experience doing hand tattoos (you’ll find that many tattoo artists won’t even tattoo this location). You also should know that hand tattoos usually require touch ups.
