There aren’t any rules about tattoos and whether a specific design belongs to men or women. However, there are some popular tattoo designs for men that stand out from others. When choosing a tattoo design, there are a few things to consider first, such as location and style. After that, consider creating a custom piece based on a favorite popular design. This way, you have a unique piece that still utilizes common, beloved ideas.


1. Choosing Body Location

It’s best to choose placement before deciding on a tattoo design. This way, it’s easier to fit the design to the space. Probably the most popular tattoo placement for men is the arm. Both the upper and lower arm provides good workspace. Chest and back tattoos are easily covered with a shirt if planning to keep the ink private. Small tattoos will fit on wrists, ankles, hips, and feet.
