1. Wrist tattoos
The wrist is one of the most visible areas on your body. A wrist tattoo can be a great conversation starter when new people you’re meeting notice it. Having a meaningful message written in a cryptic way can add a little bit of mystery and thoughtfulness to your personality.
2. Shoulder tattoos
A shoulder tattoo is usually sported by men who are into fitness and gym. They look sexy on people with strong and heavy shoulders.
3. Forearm tattoos
Forearm tattoos look good on people with a thin built . In the picture above, you can see a forearm tattoo design featuring an origami pink crane with a cherry blossom pattern on a black lotus surrounded by bits of other tattoos. Wouldn’t it look great on you too?
4. Arm tattoo
Few men actually tattoo their full arm. If you wear t-shirts often, arm tattoos can add more colours to your personality.
5. Sleeve tattoos
Sleeve tattoos make you stand out from the crowd. Some of these designs can make your arm look like a piece of canvas.
6. Chest tattoos
Getting tattoos on the chest for men can be risky and unappealing unless done right with the correct design. The key to having a good chest design is to have something unique and special when it comes to the artwork. It’s a part of our bodies that we don’t necessarily have to show and can be something personal.
7. Leg / Calf tattoos

Leg tattoos can look really sexy if done right. If you want to get a big tattoo and can’t really get one on the arms due to social and professional restrictions, you can always explore the idea of getting one on your legs. Again, big artwork ideas are the way to go here.
8. Neck tattoos
Neck tattoos are not advisable unless you are a badass and can withstand acute pain. You need to understand that some parts of your body are sensitive and getting a tattoo on these parts may cause excruciating pain. The general neck area happens to be one of these areas but having a tattoo on the neck is a way to show the world what matters a lot to you.
Types of Tattoos by Form/Design
Different people have different preferences. Some prefer simple and tiny tattoos, while others prefer big, detailed and meaningful tattoos. Hence, we can segregate some popular tattoos by their design and form. Hoping that some of these designs inspire your next tattoo idea.
1. Simple tattoos
If you’re one of those who doesn’t overcomplicate his life, then a simple tattoo is something you should go for.
2. Small / Tiny tattoos
Most couples go for tiny tattoos together as a symbol of their connection. If you and your better half wish to add more depth to your relationship, you can look for an artwork that symbolises an idea that you both care about.
3. Meaningful tattoos
Meaningful tattoos could be messages that have a much deeper meaning than it may seem on the surface. Ideas that are big, universal and evergreen are great starters to think of a meaningful tattoo design.
4. Cool tattoos
Cool tattoos are for the fun-loving men. If you’re one of those who can stay cool in a burning stressful situation, you can share your idea of a chill, happy and worry-free life through a cool tattoo design.
5. Classic art
If you are like me who likes classic art and can’t really afford the real thing, getting a tattoo by a really skilled tattoo artist can do wonders.
6. Tribal tattoos
Tribal tattoos are the most popular form of artwork that people use for a tattoo. Some of these tattoos are sacred and some are special if they are personalized. Of course, not everyone gets tribal tattoos and sometimes, they can also turn off people but hey, as long as you have a strong personal connection with it, go for it!
7. Biomechanical tattoos
Biomechanical Tattoo is one of the most popular tattoo designs for men these days. You can get a cyborg look by adding mechanical elements inked into your body.
