IMHO, there’s nothing cooler than forearm tattoos. They are right where everyone can see them, but not so in your face as a shoulder tattoo. You can get half sleeves there, or you can get tiny designs all up them, each looks equally as fab. We’ve rounded up some truly amazing forearm tatts for you to check out.
Forearm tattoos are pretty popular and are really fun to get. Some people start on one arm and end up doing the whole arm and then the other one. Forearm tattoos are a bit daring because they are pretty visible unless you have a long sleeved shirt on. Something to consider, especially if you are going to be getting a job soon is what their forearm tattoo policy entails. Some companies don’t care as long as it is covered but it’s just safe to double check.
Forearm tattoos are bold because you aren’t showcasing art in an indiscreet manner but rather in a way that exudes a confidence most people won’t show off.

There are so many different ways to get your arm inked up so before you decide on the final decision, take a look around and see all the options.

This art screams passion and beauty. There is so much detail covering her body and we can’t help but be a little in awe by it. Notice the middle finger anchor and the pinky dollar sign. Seriously, this girl has got it going on.

Forearm tattoos are totally hip these days thanks to ruggedly handsome men rockin’ them like it’s no big deal. But part of what makes a tattoo look too good for words to describe is the design. It’s important to take some time to think about what you want to convey in your message because let’s be honest for a second—every bit of ink has a story and you want to make yours count.
Geometric is the newest design to hit the forearm scene and it’s making quite a splash. There’s something deliciously trippy about the different sizes and shapes all coming together to make one rad image. Whether you’re a black and white tattoo kinda guy or one who likes a little bit of color in his life, don’t worry, geometrics look great no matter the color.
You could always go classic and get a lion or some other fierce beast but why not venture out a little bit and try a shape that’s reshaping culture? Doubt you’ll be disappointed and everyone around you is going to want the same thing.
The following tattoos are pretty awesome and we think you’re going to love them.
This world is so vast and huge. There are so many cultures that make up the enormity that is earth. This simple, yet profound image does a really nice job of summing up our planet.
