What to Know Before Getting a Finger Tattoo

Thinking About Getting a Finger Tattoo? Here's What You Should Consider First

One of the most important things to think about when getting a new tattoo — aside from the design and what talented artist you'll entrust to do it — is where you want to place it on your body. Some areas like the feet or spine are extra sensitive and more painful to get tattooed, while areas like your sternum make hiding a tattoo easy. Then there are some areas, like the hands or fingers, that come with an extra set of rules for you to think about when considering them.

While they're some of the most popular places for people to get tattooed, there are tons of artists out there who actually wouldn't recommend getting inked in this area because of the tendency of tattoos placed there to fade over time. Along with that, there are a few other things you should know about getting finger tattoos if you haven't already done the research. Read ahead for some things to keep in mind before you book your next tattoo appointment.
