Tribal tattoos are inspired by real warriors. In fact, ancient warrior tattoos were designed to distinguish one tribe from another and to ward off enemies. Tattoos were placed on the outside of the arm for quick identification, but since things have changed greatly, these tattoos can be worn anywhere on the body.
Today, tribal markings are especially attractive and popular on the forearm.
The muscularity of the forearm makes it an attractive palette for tribal designs, especially since great strength is found in the forearms. Besides that, forearm muscles are actually the most visible muscle group in the body. A tattoo placed here is sure to be noticed by everyone.
Many intricate tribal design options are available, and due to the limited surface area of the forearm, not all designs can be tattooed there. This means you’ll have to discuss viable design options with your tattoo artist instead of choosing one that just looks nice.
Creating tribal tattoos involves the use of a lot of ink to attain the right color density and design thickness, and fortunately, the skin of the forearm is perfect for maintaining these elements.
