There is a big difference between a tattooed person and a tattooed person. A tattooed person has tattoos, whether it’s one or twenty tattoos, but they can still maintain a “regular” or “corporate” appearance to the public. However, a tattooed person is a heavily tattooed person, which usually means they have ink all over the place, even in unexpected places. As you may know tattoo collection is addictive and once you get started it can be hard to quit. As you rack up more work, you start to run out of space on the main real estate areas – arms, legs, back, etc. And if you want to keep getting a tattoo, that means going for someone from the less common placements on the body.
The armpit is one of those tattoo locations. Underarm tattoos can be quite tricky, both for the client sitting on them and for the artist performing the tattoo. The skin is very stretchy, due to the constant mobility, which can make it difficult for an artist to pull a straight line. Moreover, this place is quite sensitive even for guys and girls with tattoos. But, it’s a really badass place for a tattoo. Nothing says you can take the pain like an armpit tattoo.
