No Tattoos Where? - Three Body Parts Not Meant For Tattoos And Why

Oct 26, 2007
Your face, hands, and feet are the three places on your body that a tattoo artist may try to talk you out of tattooing. You may actually have a difficult time finding an artist who will give you a tattoo there. Why is this? Because often times people are impulsive about getting tattoos and the artist knows this.

Getting a tattoo is something that should be given a lot of thought because a tattoo is a permanent piece of art As you consider getting a tattoo, you need to see the big picture of your life. An example of this is your face area. Your face is obviously a highly visible area of your body. You may not care today about your employment possibilities, but a visible tattoo could cause you problems in getting a job, especially a tattoo on your face. A tattoo in an area like your face has the potential of ruining your life.

Good tattoo artists understand the significance of wearing permanent art and they truly want their clients to be happy, not just as they leave the studio, but for the rest of their lives with their choices in tattoos. According to the professional tattoo artists I have talked to, they all say they will not tattoo someone in several areas, including the face.

Tattoos on the hands and feet also have the potential of being of poor quality because your hands and feet get the most physical abuse from everyday life. It is very difficult to maintain a good quality tattoo once you leave the studio when it is on these parts of your body. The constant friction of socks and shoes on your feet can wear away a healed tattoo as well. Healing of these areas is also very difficult and can take up to 3 months. Your hands and feet can also require more touch-ups from the tattoo artist. An artist who will do one of these tattoos may not want to include the touch-ups for free, as they usually do with tattoos on other parts of your body.

As I said before, it could be difficult to find a tattoo artist who will do one of these tattoos. Just make sure that you do not sacrifice a safe, quality tattoo experience and get an inferior artist just to get the tattoo. You should be prepared to have to take extra special care of these types of tattoos as well.
