Two factors contribute to the best tattoo placements: level of pain tolerance and visibility. Some women want a noticeable tattoo, while others prefer discretion for professional reasons. All Women Stalk recommends the inner wrist as the best location because of little pain and the ability to cover the tattoo.
The ankle is another position for a tattoo with minimal pain. It also allows for coverage at work and more open visibility elsewhere. Upper arms have a good cushion, which helps minimize pain. Visibility is high with short sleeves, but longer-sleeved work clothes cover the tattoo. An upper back tattoo has little exposure risk at work and is prominent for more provocative going-out attire.
