The wrist has always been an attractive tattoo location. It’s where we place our watches and bracelets, so it’s no surprise that the wrist would be a popular choice for the cool tattoo you secretly desired. But before you take the plunge, make sure you’ve considered all the branches that come with a highly visible tattoo. Many jobs prohibit visible tattooing, no matter how small or tasteful the design may be.
This was indeed a difficult list to put together as the Web was flooded with tons of amazing wrist tattoos that all of our list seemed worthy for one reason or another. It’s our experience that people start to lose patience with lists of over 50 items, so we’ll do our best to keep it at 50 – including future edits. Enjoy!
