The wrist has always been a popular place to get tattooed. There are so many designs that can be created. No matter what style you like from subtle and sweet to edgy and trendsetting there is a wrist tattoo for everyone. It’s not only the endless creative possibilities that makes these a favorite.
The tradition of wearing a tattoo on a wrist appeared a while ago. Seamen started to apply nautical stars on their wrists. They believed these tattoos to be their guides in the open sea, protectors of their long, dangerous, and exhausting journeys. Later, in the middle of the 20th century, the members of gay and lesbian communities chose wrists as places for their tattoos.
These tattoos are as noticeable as you want to make them. A small piece will subtly catch the eye and a bolder design will make a statement. It is a brilliant first tattoo with the bonus of a low pain level.
