I’ve been wanting a tattoo for sooo long!& ive finally found a what i want to get.
My sign is Virgo, SO & LOs sign is Cancer, i found these two but im not sure which one looks nicer , im leaning towards the first one
i want it small enought that it can be covered but big enough that it can be seen.
These are my three options, all on my left side
side of shoulder
Opinions are greatly appreciated thank you in advance!!

Honestly, I wouldn’t get it on the wrist. I have 5 tattoos and they are all on my upper back/shoulder/ribs. This way, I can even wear short sleeved shorts and some tank tops and not be able to see the tattoos.
Personally, I like the idea of either the shoulder or inner arm. I really want roman numerals on my inner arm, but again, I don’t want to regret it since it’s a pretty noticable spot! But if you are open to that, I say go for it!!
Oh, I also like the first design better too. 🙂

I like the inner arm option best. You can wear a 3/4 sleeve top to cover it if you want instead of a long sleeve top. You know?
I like the set up first design best but the ‘M’ on the second one best. Does that make sense?

I would vote inner arm. I have 3 tattoos, and they’re all in spots I can cover up. I would strongly discourage the wrist. I like that tattoo, also. It’s nice to have something that is so personal to you.

Don’t do wrist! I got one on my wrist and now that I’m older, I seriously hate it.
You really can’t ever cover it unless you want to wear a large, chunky bangle [which I don’t like to wear].

I may be in the minority here but I like the second one the best- it just seems to flow more naturally than the first imo. I have two wrist tattoo’s now and they were fairly painful and they fade quickly because of how much you move your wrist around. I think the design would look great on the inner arm or even ankle (didn’t see that option up there).

I would never get a wrist tattoo, and probably nothing on my arm unless it was the very upper arm. I was always told “Never where a judge or employer will see it”, and unless you work in an industry where tattoos are widely accepted, I completely agree with that. I’ve got a piece that covers half my back, and I can wear a short sleeved shirt or dress to work and it won’t be visible. Should it matter? Of course not. But it still does. I’ve worked long enough to see people get passed over for promotions under the guise of “he/she just isn’t professional enough”.
Also, I like the layout of the first design better, but I’d tone down spiky/tribal thing unless you’re really going for that look. I love the flow of the lines on the second design.

Of all those I would say side of shoulder. I have mine under my hairline on back of neck and I love it there. Cover when I want to, show it off when I want to 🙂

Im currently an office manager and my boss is pretty chill but i do know that it has to be something i can cover for whenever i get another job.
im really leaning towards the inner arm i do like it.
& i like the first design but i do like how the M in the second is more ” swoopy or girly”, wonder how it would look with the bottom M but the cancer sign from the first design lol
idk i just keep going back to the first design lol

As someone with two wrist tattoos, I will advise you they are in plain view and people WILL see them. I find that you can hide them with a thick bangle, or even turn your palms over, but with an inner arm tattoo, you cannot turn it, or wear jewelry to cover it at all.
I also have a rose on my shoulder where your image shows a flower and that is my favorite one. I would wait until you love something a bit larger? It might not look so great in a big area like that! 🙂
Inner ankle is a favorite spot of mine as well. 🙂

Elky OMG YOURE AWESOME!! i love it
FreckledFox this might sound weird but i want it where i can see it lol, thats why i was aiming for the shoulder but idk if itll look weird with just that there, unless i can figure out a background to put around it so it doesnt look soo tiny.
the wrist hurts doesn it? lol idk why i liked the inner elbow part i just do really catches my attention

My vote is for inner arm. Wrist tattoos are overdone these day IMO.

I like the combined image best.
As for the placement options, I don’t like any of them. If you want it somewhere that can easily be covered that I would do something like right under your hairline on the back of your neck, unless you wear your hair up often.
Also on your foot would be an option.
I have tattoos just about anywhere you can name minus my chest, if you want it easily covered you don’t want any of your three options.
