(Please note that this article does not encourage lying to your parents. Make sure that if you are underage, you do receive written consent from your parent/guardian for a tattoo, and when you do get one, make it count.)

In India, anything can be apshagun. Take money with your left hand, you’re doomed to be poor, sneeze in the doorway, years f back luck are lined up for you. Calling someone back as they’re leaving aye haye, what will we do of you now? However, there is one thing that trumps all of these as one of the most unholy situations and that is inking your body.

First of all, what do you have to be thinking to have wanted to have gotten that tattoo there? And honestly who will give you a job? And when it comes down to finally saying no, ‘science’ will back your mom up and that is the end of your tattoo dream. However, there is a way to do some jugaad around this situation.

Also, make sure your artist is always comfortable with what you’re asking for, if they say no to an idea, they probably know best.

  1. Your Butt

This seems obvious, but most people don’t think of their ass cheek for the first place to get a tattoo. Butt, honestly, there is a lot more to a butt tattoo than the fact that it’s on your ass. With the right placement and a good artist, these can be very classy. Just maybe a symbol that means a lot to you or something even more personal, because you can totally curate who sees this spot.

Cute, but also hella cheeky
  1. Ribcage/Underboob

This is the perfect spot to experiment with any size of tattoos, assuming you don’t show off that kind of skin to your mom (lol). Though the area seems quite sensitive and is one of the most painful areas to get a tattoo on, it is also one of the best spots to get one. The even skin and large flat surface creates the perfect empty canvas for art.

This one will probably be harder to hide, but something smaller will definitely be easier
  1. Thigh

Just like the ass, how many people will see an upper thigh? Again, this is a larger surface that allows for room for experiments. Further, if you’re willing to push it up a notch, you can mix butt and thigh tattoos to create a big, beautiful piece.

  1. Behind your ear

Now, this is a spot for tiny tiny tattoos, but also provides the scope for rebellion. Behind the ear tattoos are subtle, but get their point across when they want to, the options are endless. Furthermore, as long as your hair is down, no one will ever know unless you want them to.

  1. Inner Lip

Now, this is questionable. Inner lip tattoos are less permanent than finger tats and those are really hard to keep alive. Getting a tattoo here can essentially be classified as temporary ink, but that is what makes it fun in its own sense. Since the ink will eventually fade away, you can get something hilarious and eventually it will go away leaving ‘no ragrets’. Just be careful with aftercare, since the inside of your mouth is always moist.

This seems like the wrong place to put these instructions
