A good place for an R.I.P. tattoo, also known as a memorial tattoo, varies based on the personality and aesthetic of the person getting the tattoo. Some popular locations include the shoulder, back and chest. The chest above the heart is a particularly poignant placement for a memorial tattoo.
Memorial tattoos, like most tattoos, vary in size and style. Some designs work better in specific locations. A tattoo with just words and simple scrolls or vines works well on a foot or as an armband. Portraits look nice on the shoulder, chest and back because of the larger area available for detail.
