So I've got a friend who is an apprentice tattoo artist and I've seen some of his work and he's pretty good, so I was thinking id get a few done, I want to get into management so I can't have them be too obvious but my guess is when I get higher up ill have to wear long sleeve shirts anyway so it probably won't be too bad. I was thinking id get stuff on my shoulders, chest, and/or mid bicep, I have no idea what to get, despite the fact that many think its toolish I like the tribal look, but I like it better when its got a design with it, my nickname is the Italian stallion, and it has personal meaning to me, also I am pretty religious so I was thinking a cross might be cool too, these too are my favorite
but I'm not sure wehre they would look good I was thinking each one could go on my upper arm possibly with a tribal design going up each shoulder but I'm not sure if it would look good on my body,
if you think it would or if you have some sort of suggestion it would be nice, thanks

Personally I'm not a big fan of tattoos on either gender, one or two I can deal with but I don't like over the top stuff, ones that go around the whole arm/leg. The tribal ones can be quite intimidating.
I've seen chest ones, I don't think they look good. My friend has swallows on his chest and it looks weird to me.
For a man I think on the shoulder blade or the top of the arm is the best place.
As for the type of tattoos, I design tattoos for my friends and I always say to them, yes find the stuff you like but make it have meaning. My friend has one on her side that is flowers on ivy but at the end of each ivy thread is a hidden letter and each letter is the start of the name of a person that is important to her. Another has a tiger wiggling down her back because her name is Cat. My point is don't go for something that looks nice now because one day you might not like it anymore. If it has meaning to you then you will never regret it.0
