  1. I really like some of the suggestions you offer on where to place the tattoo once you’ve decided to get one. Choosing a place that has little friction is especially important since you’ll most likely be sore once it’s over and moving around won’t help much. The best place to probably get one would be big, broad areas that won’t see much light every day such as the back, shoulder, or stomach.
