For some people, choosing a tattoo location involves finding a place easy to cover. For others, that consideration doesn’t really matter.
Men making the leap into highly visible tattoos don’t have to get huge pictures drawn on their backs like paintings, or designs covering a leg.
Instead, a man might opt for a small tattoo to accent the rugged features of his hands, using the design to highlight strong fingers, or callouses that reveal interesting hobbies.
Tattoos on the hand can be single letters, words that move with the sinews, a design on a finger, or any number of other things. The important part is that bold is the key so the tattoo will look good for years to come.
Small spaces can have high impacts, especially when the hand is basically uncover-able. Ink connoisseurs will know that even a small tattoo can have a dramatic impact. Our hands are one of our biggest communicators, and one featuring a tattoo says bold and fearless.
