This makes them preferable among tattoo artists who like to put in as much detail as possible. A white canvas ready to change into a magnificent design with sexy accents is as valuable as it gets. The designs are infinite and so are the personalities of the ladies who decide to get tattooed on that area of their bodies. However, women have predilections for certain motifs, such as flowers, animals and movie characters. I guess they soften up the harsh lines of thigh tattoos. The truth is that tattoos are sexy regardless of their location or what they represent.

Leg Splitting Tattoos: These Armpit Tattoos Take Ink Art to Another Level
Humans have marked their bodies with tattoos for thousands of years. These permanent designs—sometimes plain, sometimes elaborate, always personal—have served as amulets, status symbols, declarations of love, signs of religious beliefs, adornments and even forms of punishment. In terms of tattoos on actual bodies, the earliest known examples were for a long time Egyptian and were present on several female mummies dated to c. But following the more recent discovery of the Iceman from the area of the Italian-Austrian border in and his tattoo patterns, this date has been pushed back a further thousand years when he was carbon-dated at around 5, years old. Following discussions with my colleague Professor Don Brothwell of the University of York, one of the specialists who examined him, the distribution of the tattooed dots and small crosses on his lower spine and right knee and ankle joints correspond to areas of strain-induced degeneration, with the suggestion that they may have been applied to alleviate joint pain and were therefore essentially therapeutic. This would also explain their somewhat 'random' distribution in areas of the body which would not have been that easy to display had they been applied as a form of status marker.
Tattoos: The good, the bad and the bumpy
Body art has been a form of self-expression for centuries. For some it may be a fashion statement, and for others, a tattoo may have religious, cultural or personal meaning. Whatever the reason, deciding to get a tattoo is a big decision that will leave permanent markings on your body.
It could even increase your risk for infection. New tattoos are more vulnerable to breakouts. You probably already know that popping pimples is a no-no. Although it may be extra tempting if a zit is tarnishing your new tattoo, doing so can cause more harm than usual.
