Getting a tattoo should never be an impulsive decision. A tattoo is more than just the process of displaying ink on your body. 

From the design you choose to the place you choose to get inked on, the whole process of getting a tattoo is often, extremely personal and emotional.

However, once you have finalized the kind of design you want to pick (which can take its own sweet time), the decision-making process does not stop. A very crucial aspect of deciding to get a tattoo is deciding the area of your body where you want to get inked.  

Many factors play into the role of deciding the body area; it could be your decisions to go with a body part that pains less (ideally any area where there are less bones and more muscles), or one that is easily visible, or maybe, even one that you want to hide.

However, basis your zodiac sign, there are certain body parts that would be the perfect place to get inked. Here goes:

1. Aries (Mar 22 – Apr 21) : Back

Known to be courageous and independent, you hate restrictions. Which is why your back is your canvas when it comes to getting inked. 


2. Taurus (Apr 22- May 21) : Wrist

You are renowned for your tasteful selections; maybe because you are so stubborn when it comes to your choices. A tattoo on the wrist, that is easily visible, would be the perfect pick for you. 


3. Gemini (May 22 – Jun 21) : Neck

You are an individual with many talents, and your dynamic personality loves all things mischievous. A tattoo embracing your neck, that plays peek-a-boo with your clothes, appeases your love for games and fun.

4. Cancer (Jun 22 – Jul 21) : Calf

Sensitive at core, you hate arguments, which is why you forgive, but you never forget. A calf tattoo, one that can be hidden or displayed according to occasions or choices, is what your practical self will love. 


5. Leo (Jul 22 – Aug 21) : Shoulder

Domination comes just as naturally to you as popularity. Ideally, shoulder tattoos, where you can showcase your body’s strength, suit your nature.

6. Virgo (Aug 22 – Sep 21) : Fingers

You are clever and creative at the same time, and have an innate talent of leading people on. A tattoo on your fingers will suit your need for perfection, because fingers need delicate tattoos where even the most minute details need to be crystal clear.

7. Libra (Sep 22 – Oct 21) : Elbow/Arm

You love a life of luxury and adventure, but your love life is never short of complicated. An elbow tattoo that is clear and yet has space to develop into something more, will satisfy your indecisiveness.

8. Scorpio (Oct 22 – Nov 21) : Ankle

Powerful and self-reliant, you are as mysterious as they come. Your secretive nature will love an ankle tattoo, one that not many will discover on the first go; and yet once seen, will find it hard to ignore!

9. Sagittarius (Nov 22 – Dec 21) : Thighs

If there was a sign that defined sexuality, it would have to be you, Sagittarius. Open-minded and prone to achieving what you want, a tattoo on your thighs is the perfect treat for you and your partner(s).

10. Capricorn (Dec 22 – Jan 21) : Chest

You are loyal, hardworking and very straightforward. Which is why, when you get inked, it will be a statement – right there on the chest! Plus, you love to be on top – inside the bedroom and outside of it, so this really is the ideal place.

11. Aquarius (Jan 22 – Feb 21) : Feet 

You are not just innovative, you set trends. Anything too common has already lost your interest. Which is why a tattoo on your feet is what your eccentric personality is most likely to accept, though you might just go for a face tattoo too, if you were so inclined.

12. Pisces (Feb 22 – Mar 21): Behind the ear

You are sensual, and alluring. A tattoo just behind your ear, an area that is bound to receive your lover’s attention, and also attract people to you, makes for a classic pick.

This is not a list defining where you get inked – that will always be an individual’s choice. However, chances are, you might feel more comfortable if you pick this particular body part to get inked on, or so the stars say.
