Even to this day, hand tattoos are a rather controversial form of body art. And there are a number of reasons why. From a practical level, hand tattooing carries some physical concerns. The nerves, tendons and blood vessels in hands are very close to the surface of the skin, having almost no muscle or fat padding over them. A lot of artists and tattoo enthusiasts seem to have questions and concerns about if damage can occur from tattooing hands. As humans, we do just about everything with our hands, which makes hand tattoos one of the highest risk for tattoos that might become infected. Another concern is that since our hands are how we interact and greet the world, making marks on them is a very obvious form of physical identification. Since it’s so hard to hide the hands, making marks on them is a good way of telling society at large what you think of their values, especially when such marks are frowned upon. And that can be particularly hard on the individual especially when you have to get a job in the public eye. So, think ahead before you get a hand tattoo, it’s a very serious decision.
There have always been a lot of hand tattoos around but usually they are much smaller and not ones that cover the entire hand like this one does. This seems almost like this person is wearing a red glove with a picture of some sort of angry serpent on it. The person with hand tattoos like this is probably the type that has their whole body inked up and that’s cool too.
