Breaking from the traditional areas such as the arms or back, the knees are becoming a popular place to get some ink done. Also joining that list are the elbows, with designs such as massive red roses and elaborate mandalas becoming preferred choices.
Much like the knees, however, the elbows are not a good choice for anyone who is already squeamish about getting a tattoo or prefers not to withstand the pain often associated with the more sensitive areas. Not only are the elbows especially painful, they are also known for potentially taking longer to heal than most tattoos. Proper tattoo aftercare is absolutely essential to achieve an end result and on top of that, the location may make it harder to accomplish simple tasks or get work done.
If you’re considering an elbow tattoo, the consensus seems to be that certain designs are better suited to the area. Patterns in a circular design, spider webs, or floral motifs might be good options to achieve the best result.
