Tattoos are supposed to be quite personal, whether they're a declaration to the outside world, or simply a pretty design.

So it makes sense that you should get a tattoo on whichever part of your body that YOU want. However, there are a couple of things to consider:

Pain - The first thing 90% of people ask about tattoos is, "did it hurt?".

If you're one of those people who aren't too keen on pain, then I'd suggest picking a part of your body that isn't covered in nerves (like the palm of your hand), and which is far away from bone.

The upper-arm area is one of the most common places for tattoos, and is relatively pain-free.

Visibility - If you're an extrovert, you may want to get a cool tattoo where everyone can see it! The forehead is one example.

However, if you're planning to attend a job interview at some point in your life, then you may want to reconsider that idea. The same goes for neck and knuckle tattoos.

Connotations - Whilst I genuinely believe that people should be able to do whatever they want with their bodies, I'd suggest at least considering what other people may infer from your tattoos, before you have them done.

For example, while a leg or back tattoo might seem fairly innocuous, getting your neck, hands or face tattooed is considered to be "hardcore".

There are negative connotations with tattoos on the lower back area too, although I think it's possible to pull those off if you avoid "cheap-looking" designs.

The best place is where you can keep it covered, unless you want it to show. Employers today are starting to not allow them to be seen.

I think personally, that a tattoo on the lower part of a lady's back looks fantastic. With the type of clothes that ladies wear, they have the option to show it in its full glory or to hide it discreetly.

I wish you well in deciding, it's all about you at the end of the day, you will have to live with it forever afterwards.

Think of what profession you want to have, as some aren't too keen on tattoos. So, with that in mind, have a tattoo in a place that can be covered easily without going out of your way to do so.

If you have a job where it doesn't matter, then put it where you D*** well please. My boyfriend refers to the tattoo on a girl's lower back as a tramp stamp... If that helps.

That is a personal choice. Yes, it is sexy for women to have lower back tattoos, but remember that they don't get to see it. I love all of mine but each was chosen for a specific reason. I do LOVE foot and ankle tat's on ladies - they are ultra sexy.

Also, what the tattoo is will depend on where it is placed.

For boys, I think the best place to get a tattoo is on the upper arm. It gives a handsome and muscular look to their arm. Girls can get a tattoo on any part of their body. As long as it looks nice, it would be fine!
