Leg tattoos are less common than other forms of tattoos. The leg tattoos are more easily concealed, and are sometimes done mainly for the actual person receiving the tattoo rather than the audience who sees it.
Leg tattoos can vary in size from a small tattoo on the calf or thigh, to a leg sleeve which covers the entire leg. The larger designs such as the sleeve tattoo can take several sittings to complete. They also take much planning in order to create a design that symbolizes you are your feelings or beliefs. Along with the larger size also comes a larger price tag. Large more detailed tattoos are usually more expensive because they take longer, and there is more area to ink.
Tattoos on the hip are also becoming more popular. Some common choices for hip tattoos include fairies, butterflies, flowers, and stars. These are great designs for hip tattoos because they can be expanded to cover as much of the hip as desired. The hip is a common placement on women because it is both concealed and displayed easily. Although hip tattoos are more common among women, there are men who opt for this type of ink as well.
Some common designs for men include; brass knuckles, Celtic knot work, guns, cross tattoos, and shamrocks. Of course the size of your hip art depends on your personal preference. While women may tend to go with a smaller more petite tattoo, men usually like to go with a design that is large and masculine. The price of hip tattoos is normally less expensive than other placements because the design and area are smaller.
The design that you choose to have depicted in your leg tattoo depends on your reason for tattooing. You may want to have a significant event in your life recorded in the form of a tattoo on your leg. Whatever your picture choice may be, you want to make sure that it is something that shows your personality and style.
This is a good option for someone who desires a tattoo, but does not want everyone to know that they have ink. There are many locations to choose from on the leg, which makes it one of the ideal locations for your tattoo.
Tattoos on the leg may take more time to heal, because they are covered the majority of the time. Clothing that rubs against the tattoo can be a problem, and require you to wear a bandage while it is healing.
