Armband tattoos are common options for people who wish to get inked for the first time. Simple yet elegant, this type of tattoo is perfect for both men and women. There are many styles available. Men are usually fond of Celtic symbols and tribal designs, while women are more attracted to floral bands, Hawaiian motifs and feather varieties. What’s great about tattoos around the arm is that they are very flexible when it comes to design. You can have a thin one that measures a few millimeters, to a thick one an inch wide. You can have them in undulating spirals, or a straight, casual pattern.
With an armband tattoo, the design possibilities are endless. For plant-inspired tats, women can ask their artists to add flowers to the design to come up with a colorful ink which they can flaunt in sleeveless tops. Men, on the other hand, can opt for thorny, rugged styles in black or other dark colors for the mysterious look. If you want simple armband tattoos, lines and dots, when combined, can result in a very casualappearance – they can even be mistaken for a symbolic tribal tattoo. While the armband tattoo is so named because of its location, you can also ask your tattoo artist to ‘transfer’ bands around your wrists or ankles.
