So where did arm tattoos get their origin? Well I have to tell you I don’t think anyone really knows for sure, but I know that the tribes of Africa had all sorts of arm tattoos depicting their way of life and the tribal wars they fought in. Its like a story being told from the top down to the bottom of the arm. Its the same now days, just with different stories, such as someone telling their life events in vivid color. You might see a baby at the top with all sorts of miscellaneous forms around it, then all the way down the arm you will see different events within the same tattoo depicting strange things happening all the way through a persons life.
If you think arm tattoos don’t tell a story of one type or another you are kidding yourself. Some of the best arm tattoos you will ever see are on rock music artists that have each event they have played at tattooed on their arm in a sequence. One of the best rock guitarist around has lots of arm tattoos telling his story of going from bad to good and back again. Lots of musicians love their arm tattoos and so do their adoring fans.
Here a version of the arm tattoos that is becoming more and more popular these days. You will see a lot of this style of tattoo on mixed martial arts fighters in particular. I like it because it seems to be very non-descript and that means it just there for looking cool and that’s a good thing. That is probably the best reason to get an arm tattoo.
