If you’re thinking about hand tattoos, then you’re on the right blog.
Hand tattoos is something only the bravest people will do.
Don’t get me wrong, hand tattoos are not a taboo anymore as they used to be, same is with face tattoos and butt tattoos.
But if you’re here to find a great hand tattoo, let me give you a few tips first:
- be 1000% sure you’re ready for this, it’s one of the most visible part of your body
- find a professional to do it
- be ready for imperfections
- find a meaningful message to express
- always tattoo the small motives first
When I said “be ready for imperfections”, that’s exactly what I was thinking on, skin on your hands and fingers is thin, and the ink can easily get distorted, healing process is also a bit harder and takes longer than usual.
But once everything is done, your hand tattoo will look so cool on you, the message you tattooed will be visible all the time and it will remind you of you and your inspirations and life. So without any further delay…

After you have finally gotten your hand tattoo, it is vital to avoid getting an infection. A fresh tattoo should be treated as a wound, and you should not scratch. Wash the tattoo three times a day with antimicrobial soap or any other soap suggested by your tattoo artist.
You can moisturize your hand with an unscented lotion or purchase the recommended moisturizer. Lastly, you should also remember to apply sunscreen on your tattoo to protect it from direct sun. The UV rays from the sun will make the tattoo immediately start fading.
Now that you have gotten a general idea of your tattoo, you need to find an experienced tattoo artist or ask a friend or family member to recommend one.
