    I am getting one of my left shoulder blade and ease of covering was a big factor. In my experience, I’ve also seen more men than women with arm tattoos

    Mine go from my shoulder down my arm and will eventually be a full sleve. I never thought about covering mine up, I love thme and I got them to represent family members and friends. I guess I really just do not see the point of having something put on yourself, especially since they are usually not cheap, just to over them up. Of course I understand if it is for your career, not that I agree it should be that way, but I understand it.If you are only going to get the one, it would better IMO on your shoulder.

    @GatsbyMama:  I regret getting tattoos on both of my arms. I don’t know what the dress code is at your school but at other jobs I’ve had it was a bitch to have to cover them, especially in the summer. Shoulder blade would be more practical.

    I say shoulder blade because I think upper arm tattoos that aren’t accompanied by anything look very masculine.

    I am also a teacher, and I got my tattoo on my shoulder blade specifically so that I could cover it up while at work.

    @GatsbyMama:  It also depends on the design. Some designs fit better in different areas. The shoulderblade would be easiest to cover, though.

    I have an upper back tattoo, and I do like being able to cover it up or show it off when wanted.

    I have right shoulder blade tattoo – it’s easier to cover at work. The tattoo I have wouldn’t work on my arm
