The thigh is a large piece of real estate on the human canvas. Thigh tattoos have the potential to be true masterful art pieces. On women, thigh tattoos can be very sexy because it’s such a sensual area. When getting a tattoo, placement is very important. Places that show commitment are the larger areas, such as sleeves, side ribs, the back, the chest, and the legs. Calf tattoos are more common on men than thigh tattoos. Women are mainly the wearers of thigh tattoos because it accentuates that part of the body. Thigh tattoos are often incorporated into other tattoos, such as full leg, and hip and side.
When getting inked onto the thigh, one can plan out how to extend the tattoo throughout the body quite easily. Getting a tattoo higher up on the thigh can also be a good choice for those whose professions do not allow for visible tattoos. It may not be the best choice for someone who is getting their first tattoo, or has a low pain tolerance. As always, take into consideration the size, placement, and design of the tattoo before you commit.
