How to Place Baby Handprint Tattoo
To place the tattoo in an area where the handprints come off as clean finished works of art, it is important to know where to place these. We will look into the best possible areas in the following baby handprint tattoo ideas.
Top Left/Right Side of Shoulder Blades
This area works best for men/women who want to get their baby's handprints tattooed on them. It is a flattened area with very less wrinkling and shifting of skin, making it a prime area to place this artwork. You can have maybe the left palm of your baby on your left shoulder top, and the right palm on your right shoulder top. You can also go with the hands placed together side by side to one corner of your shoulder, if you have plans to fill in the other shoulder space with a different tattoo in the future.
You can place those little hands in a such a way where they fall in place with where your heart is, that being the left side of course. They aren't obscene in any way, where it can also be concealed as and when you'd like, especially if you work in an office that doesn't approve of visible tattoo work. Depending on the tone of your skin you can go with either black ink or colored, to make the tattoo stand out in its own way.
Side of Your Abdomen
Choose the flat portion of the side of your tummy, where your ribs come in since you want to make the most of a skin area that is even and easy to work on. Have the tattooist place the stencil on your skin and have a good look at what it will end up like once the final work has been made. You can also get creative by placing the palms of the baby's one atop the other instead of side by side.
Being small in size, your babies palms would fit perfectly on your forearm where you can get a little artsy by including maybe a quote running below the palms, or initials placed within the spaces of the palms where your skin is bear. Try different ways to make the tattoo fuller and dominating, since your forearm will be exposed quite often being an open-faced area.
Nape of the Neck
Another very desired spot by tattoo lovers, is the nape of the neck which is a prominent yet discreet area to get a tattoo done. It can be concealed or exposed whenever you'd like, if you're worried about how to cover it up. You can lower it to fall in between your shoulder blades or just place it a little higher up around the nape area. It is an ideal spot to get a tattoo done, since you can add extra artwork to spruce it up a bit, being a very versatile area for added art designs.
To make it similarly interesting, you can also try out baby footprint tattoos and place these appropriately wherever you think they'd look best. The handprints of your baby can convey a very symbolic message that one can instantly conceive, being as obvious a message as it is. Just make sure you go to reputed tattooist who knows how to do a job well done.
