It seems as if all of the sudden, oddly placed tattoo art is popping up all over Instagram and we can’t take our eyes away!
Now, people have been getting tattoos in ridiculous places for a loooong time. But when a crazy armpit tattoo trend absolutely blows up on Instagram, there must be some reason why it might be something to try. Maybe.
The Pros And Cons Of Armpit Tattoos Make This Permanent Decision A Tough One
According to an article from InkedMag, one ‘pro’ regarding the armpit is that its location acts as the perfect centerpiece for inked colors and especially floral designs. But the con to getting tattooed in the armpit region is that it’s extremely painful!
Another pro to the armpit tattoos? The armpit is perhaps the unique hidden part of the body that’s still (mostly) cool to show off. So if you work in a career that does not allow for visible body art, well, problem solved? Although, you might want to also invest in laser hair removal if you do decide to try it out.
Lastly, it is a bit of a weird and kind of unexpected location for a tattoo, but there are stranger places.
Here are some examples of the creative armpit designs people have gotten done:
Halloween Spider Web Idea?
A Widespread Black and White Flower
Double the Flower Power!
As much as these tattoo ideas are interesting, I personally do not see myself getting a tattoo in my armpit…But, if someone paid me to do it I might actually consider getting a tiny flower or something. Oh well, they’re weird yet kind of cool to look at online.
