An inner wrist tattoo is regarded as a painful tattoo to get and is not recommended for people getting their first tattoos. The wrist is a fairly bony area of the body with little body fat. This lack of cushioning, combined with the vein located below the wrist, makes this area a sensitive spot.
After someone gets a wrist tattoo, he or she has to keep things from rubbing against the area while it heals. Rubbing can cause an infection or irritation to the wound.
Wrist tattoos are in a prominent location, but they can also be easily covered. A watch or bracelet is easily positioned over a small tattoo to cover it once it heals.
