Given the right design & a knowledgeable artist for the job, you'll get a good palm tattoo... if you really want one! But first, here's stuff you oughta know. Check out these 20 tasteful palm tattoos for learning & amusement. Enjoy!

Does it hurt? Yes. In fact the palms are one of the most sensitive areas in the body with a lot of nerve endings. These nerves are connected to our internal organs. So if ever you get  a palm tattoo and feel a tinge in your stomach, that could be it.

Some tattoo artists aren't for hand or palm tattoos because they are job-stoppers. So if you really want one, find an artist who is comfortable with the idea.

"I personally persuade people not to get their palms, lips or bottoms of feet tattooed purely for the fact of epidermal regeneration. The skin is constantly regenerating and slowly pushes the ink. I definitely would suggest against white because it is super light to begin with. Even with black ink you'll have to have them touched up every 4-6 months. If you have no qualms about paying a studio minimum every several months & don't mind the healing process over & over, then have at it."
