Artists and Hand and Facial Tattoos

Some tattoo artists will refuse to ink a person’s face, neck, or hands. Some studios have a policy that prevents their artists from doing tattoos in these locations (if I remember right, there was Spider Tattoo on Palm of Handan episode on Miami Ink where Ami James expressed this same opinion). In other shops, it’s the individual artist that chooses to turn down work when asked to tattoo a person on parts of their anatomy that are impossible to cover up or hide.

Some artists feel that they have to be the voice of reason when it comes to their customers. Just because the client is old enough to get a tattoo doesn’t mean they’ll make choices that are in their best interest. I don’t agree with this view point. If they’re old enough to shell out money, drink in a bar, and go to war, I say give them whatever they ask for. But for every artist that has a problem with doing face and hand tattoos, you’re sure to find one that has no issues with tattooing whatever you desire.

This leads me to this picture – which is one of the most elaborate palm tattoos I’ve ever run across. It’s very cool but chances are it won’t hold up over time. It’s like the bottom of the foot – usually the wear and tear that these body parts go through causes the tattoo to fade in a short amount of time. But for now – very cool.
