21 Funny, Beautiful & Shocking Armpit Tattoos
Armpit tattoos get a lot of questionable comments and negative reactions. They can be really intimidating and too tough for some people.
But I believe that armpit tattoos (as well as other radical placements) simply ROCK. Tattoos for that matter are really not for everyone... and that's exactly what's awesome and special about it! Tattoos ain't for pussies. Especially on this placement!
Today let's have a reason to look at armpits...and actually enjoy looking at them! Savor these 21 funny, beautiful & shocking armpit tattoos. Respect to those who have them. :)

How much does it hurt? According to folks who have them, the pain can get really intense. This is because underarm skin is different than the skins on our limbs, where tattoos are mostly tolerable.

GOODBYE DEODORANTS!! Hey, did you know? Chemicals in most deodorants are toxic and are being absorbed by the skin and carried through the lymph nodes near it.
