Many best friend tattoos only work when you are in the same room, next to each other. Since a best friend tattoo isn't complete without the other half, it lets even a stranger realize your friendship when you're together.

Ideal Positions for Friendship Tattoo Designs

There are a lot of areas on your body that you can place your best friend tattoos on. These tattoos will be engraved on the wrists of each person, on the back of the hands, the chest, the ankles, the fingers, the shoulders, the back, along the spine, on the feet or on the neck. Make sure that your best friend places their tattoo in the same place as yours, so the essence of your friendship will be complete.

The arms and wrists are the most popular places to place a best friend tattoo, as they are easy to see and will constantly remind you of your friend (s). The possibilities are endless: someone's favorite image, a meaningful phrase, a monogram, etc. The concept of separating the tattoo into two parts is pretty awesome because when you put your two hands together it will be complete.

The chest is the place closest to your heart. And since you love your best friend very much, this will be one of the best places to place your tattoo. Your best friend tattoo will look awesome on your chest.

Preparation Tips Before Getting Friendship Tattoos

Today it looks like everyone has something tattooed on their body. Some of these friendship tattoos are small in size but others cover an entire limb or even the entire body. But before you embark on the joint tattoo adventure together, there are a lot of things you need to know. To be able to understand what you are going to undertake, here are some tips that you might find useful:

Find a good tattoo artist who is part of a recognized organization, so you can be sure that you are well informed on the best way to get a tattoo. Visit a studio where someone you know has had a friendship tattoo, so you can be 100% sure that they are trustworthy. Also make sure that the artist uses disinfected needles to make the tattoo for you and your friend(s). If he uses dirty or non-disinfected needles, you risk getting an infection or disease. Once you've found the right studio, meet with the tattoo artist to talk about the tattoo you want to get.

Go with your best friend, so you can share the experience and their presence will help you calm down. Sometimes it's best to go get a tattoo with someone who's been there before because they can guide you through the entire process.

You should both go to the tattoo artist before and talk about the design. Bring it with you or have it printed. If it's a clean creation, sketch it out. Don't pick a design that you might later regret. Pick something that has personal meaning to each of you or something that you and your friend(s) think is awesome.

Wear suitable clothing. If you're wearing a dress to your date and want to get a tattoo on your lower back, you'll need to take it off before the job can get done. You and your friend(s) should wear something that allows easy access to the part of the body you want to tattoo. Always put on loose clothing or old clothes after getting a tattoo and do not wear socks or closed-toe shoes if you have just had a friendship tattoo on your foot, it may irritate the area. A freshly printed tattoo needs to be exposed to the air to heal properly and to look good.

If you still have no idea what kind of pattern to tattoo with your friends, why not trying some inktell’s tattoo stickers?
