    If you are looking for the best arm tattoo designs, then you are just in a right place. You don’t need to go anywhere as we have got everything here. Finding the best tattoo for your arm is not easy because your arm is going to be visible almost all the time. It represents your personality and signifies your look.
    A lot of tattoo studios are moving away from keeping ‘flashboards’ on hand to show generic prints, as more people are opting for personal pieces and designs specifically drawn out for them by illustrators and artists.

    Lovato got her first tattoo when she was only 16 and has since added more than 20 different structures to her lineup. Investigate, and you’ll see that each and every one resembles a milestone in the vocalist’s close to home history, chronicling everything from her vocation come-up and passionate and physical battles with bulimia and dependence on her open slips and effective rebounds. Her tattoos are a masterclass in significant body workmanship — and you can look at them all, ahead.

    Hello all inking lovers.
    I am a beginner in hand poke tattooing and I am looking for a place where I can enhance and expand my skills in hand poke tattooing.
    A school or an apprenticeship to learn the skill
    It would be amazing to work under and side by side with an experienced artist,I’m not based in Indonesia but I’m definitely flying to Bali for this experience.

    I’ve posted one of my latest inking tests on my body I know it’s a bit messy but that is why I want to learn the proper structure and method

    Hope to hear from you soon. Inking for life ✨

    Hey there, thanks for checking us out! The art style is the most important consideration. After you narrow down your selection based on that, compare price quotes and consider which environment will be more comfortable for you (bustling, noisy, good distractions but little control vs. somewhere more private, potentially boring, more personal attention to your needs). We’re happy to help you with price quotes and tell you more if you provide more details about the design elements, size and your desired appointment date. Message us on fb or insta or use the contact page to email us. Thanks again!

    Hi. I’m planning to get a sleeve tattoo on my arm. Thinking of a cloudy pattern with some realistic looking items. I’ve looked at studios like Luxury Ink, Two Guns tatto and Nototious Ink, among som others. Which studio and which artist to choose?

  9. TATTLAS Listing Owner

    Thanks for sharing! We’re really impressed by Be No Square’s efforts to be an eco-friendly tattoo studio. We aim to make it easier for the Bali tattoo industry to dispose of needles responsibly and have less of a negative impact on our environment. Cheers 😉 Ningsi

    Hey Rene! Thanks for the info about tattoo beds. They are a good investment.

    Thanks Ma Tattoo! What is a Karang Goak ??

  13. TATTLAS Listing Owner

    Hey Sebastian, thanks for reaching out about your tattoo design on our forum. The bicep area is not very big – depends how much you go to the gym I guess – so you might need a narrow vertical or horizontal design such as a composition of Barong and Rangda like this one, or a custom fantasy scene. If you’re looking for a Balinese design, you might be inspired by some of the information and designs here:

    Then get in touch with a really good Balinese tattoo artist like Ma Tattoo, Made Jet Lee or Paudy – find them and others on this page:



    Yes, we would be glad to give a suggestion of our Traditional Balinese ” Karang Goak ” statue, it’s a Balinese ornaments.
    Please visit MA TATTOO BALI for consultation.
    Thank you & Warm Regards
