For Arm Tattoos, Forearm Tattoos Are The Way To Go

Do we really have to strongarm you into looking at some awesome forearm tattoos?

 Forearm tattoos are a very bold choice, but one that can pay off immensely in t-shirt weather. Have you ever considered a forearm tattoo? It just might be a great idea.

Do you ever really think about and appreciate your forearms? Just look at those fuckers. They’re a real marvel. They contain two long bones, your radius and your ulna. Those bad bitches are connected by something called the interosseous membrane.


Forearms have got a lot of nerve too. Well, nerves, plural. For one, your ulnar nerve runs the length of your forearm. If you cut up a forearm you’d also come across the radial and median nerves.


This wondrous region is also home to all sorts of muscles. Some of these include the flexors and extenders for your fingers, a flexor of the elbow, and the pronators and supinators that are used to turn your hand. A fun bar bet is to tell someone that you both have the same amount of muscle in your fingers. The fact that there are no muscles in the fingers and they are controlled by muscles in the forearm should net you a free drink after a quick visit to wikipedia.


Forearms also make great weapons. A properly wielded forearm can inflict massive damage upon the face of your enemies.


But what better use of a forearm than displaying some totally sick tattoo ink for the rest of the world to enjoy? We’ve gathered up some really awesome pictures of forearm tattoos. Because there’s nothing better than using your forearm to bring aesthetic pleasure to those around you via a rad forearm tattoo.
