Female tattoos on the forearm are a sign of a strong character. Pain when applying a tattoo on the forearm is in the tolerance zone. The options for sketches are endless and they all look quite impressive and fresh. But such tattoos also have a serious drawback – it is almost impossible to hide them. It is this fact that stops many girls from taking the decisive step.
The conscious choice of the forearm as a place for a tattoo is due to more serious reasons:
The orientation of the drawing on the forearm can be very different:
It is also possible to perform a ½ or ¼ sleeve, in which the entire forearm or part of it is clogged with a solid pattern. The clarity of the lines in this case depends solely on the features of the sketch and the preferences of the customer.
Proximity to the brush, in most cases, is dictated by official duties and the dress code. If in certain circumstances the image needs to be hidden, then the drawing is applied to the cuff line. In addition, there are practically no fat deposits in the wrist and hand area, but there are many nerve endings that provide sensitivity. Tattooing in this area is quite painful, so many girls consciously bypass these areas when doing a tattoo on the forearm.
Another painful point is the elbow joint. When performing the sleeve, it is impossible to bypass the elbow bend, but if we are talking about an incomplete sleeve or a single drawing, then in order to avoid severe pain, it is better to place the sketch bypassing this zone.
Style decisions depend on the chosen sketch, the wishes of the customer, the general style and way of thinking. In most cases, the minimalism style is chosen for female tattoos on the forearm. Small-sized tattoos look very neat and visually do not overload the hand. Such tattoos are easy to apply and are hidden under clothing or a wristband.
The linework is quite young, but confidently gaining popularity, the style is perfect for creating an atmospheric tattoo on the forearm. Transparency and drawing along the contour distinguishes this style from many others on the principle of ease of application, both for the master and for the client. However, using a lineswork on the forearm, the main thing is not to overdo it with the volume of the drawing. Too large a composition due to the physiological characteristics of the hand will be almost indistinguishable.
Dowork is another unusual solution when performing a tattoo on the forearm. Like the linwork, the style is not intended for drawing large drawings on a limited surface. But miniature sketches that are in the same plane will look very original.
Ornamental and oriental (Japanese tattoo style) are more often used by men. The female analogue of this category of tattoos can be called baroque, which stands out with a more complex and ornate structure. These styles are characterized by a dense application of pigment and are more suitable when performing sleeves.Abstraction has recently become more and more popular among both sexes. At the same time, women's patterns are most often performed in such styles as: Indian ornaments, ethno, Polynesia, Asian motifs. Tattoos in a geometric style look fashionable and unusual. But the tribal with its clear and sharply defined forms is gradually going out of fashion. Only long-time fans of this style turn to him.
Black-and-white and color realism on the female forearm is used much less often. But if desired, the tattoo can be made in any style. The main thing is that the style direction is in harmony with the chosen sketch and gives aesthetic pleasure to the owner.
Sketches of female tattoos on the forearm differ in a variety of shapes and thematic variations. Unlike the massive and often aggressive male forearms, women's hands are decorated with delicate ornate patterns, inscriptions and the most delicate flowers. By the nature of all female tattoos on the forearm can be divided into several types:
Girls also often fill Indian mandalas, dream catchers or professional attributes: brushes, violin keys, writing pens. Also, the marine theme does not go out of fashion: anchors, whales, dolphins or foam waves. Symbols of power and faith of various peoples and tribes are another fairly common type of tattoos. The most popular are the Egyptian "Ankh" and the pyramids, as well as Indian lotuses, feathers, the "punch" symbol and others.
You can choose a sketch from the ready-made ones on the website or in the master's books, or order an individual drawing. In the second case, the work will take longer and will cost more.
The indisputable advantage of a tattoo on the forearm is the painlessness of the procedure. With the exception of the places of the elbow bend and the wrist, the forearm consists of a layer of muscle tissue sufficient to absorb the needle. Thanks to this, the application of a tattoo is practically not felt, especially if the girl has a high pain threshold.
Working with the forearm does not take much time because of the size of the tattoo. Processing a tattoo on the forearm is very simple. And age-related changes in this zone are practically not terrible. As well as sudden weight changes are not terrible.
But such tattoos also have disadvantages. First of all, the tattoo on the forearm is very difficult to hide. If in the future a tattoo can interfere with career advancement, then you will have to abandon this idea or doom yourself to wearing long-sleeve blouses.
The second disadvantage lies in the impracticality of the place. The forearm more often than other places suffers from the effects of detergents and mechanical abrasion. Therefore, the tattoo on the forearm will have to be updated several times more often than drawings on other parts of the body.
There are no special conditions when caring for tattoos on the forearm. In the first days, it is wrapping with a film, washing with a gentle remedy and moisturizing the skin with a healing specialized cream. In the future, until the crusts are completely exfoliated, you should clearly follow the recommendations of the master: do not scratch, often use a moisturizer, protect from the sun and water, if possible, avoid contact with clothing.
After complete healing of the skin, which will take about 3-4 weeks, it will only be necessary to lubricate the place of the pattern with sunscreen. It will prevent premature burning of the pigment and protect the weakened layer of the epidermis.
The most famous tattooed woman in the world of show business is Angelina Jolie. The actress prefers symbolism in tattoos. Her wrists are decorated with the letters " M "(in honor of her mother) and " H " (in honor of her brother). There are two inscriptions on the inner parts of the elbow bends: "purposefulness" in Arabic and "courage" in Chinese.Victoria Beckham's wrists are decorated with her husband's initials and the date of their secret wedding. Diana Arbenina also preferred symbolism and inscriptions. On one forearm, she had written the inscription: "Art is truth." On the other, "I write my own story".
Kelly Osbourne's hands are decorated with an anchor and a tape recorder. And model Heidi Klum chose a forearm for her husband's name, next to which 4 stars are applied – the number of children born by them.
