asked: Just a couple of questions: 1) How difficult is it to place a tattoo on say, the inner thigh or underside of the upper arm. 2) Is it possible to make a 'fading' effect on a piece (either with color or technique)? Thanks! :)
The inner thigh and underside of the upperarm area are not bad places to get tattooed on. Though the skin there is usually thin and sometimes a little elastic. Making it a little trickier to tattoo (aside of area sensitivity of course)
A thing to keep in mind is that these two areas are prone to weight gain/loss. But unless you gain or lose 50 lbs overnight either from food or working out it shouldn’t be a problem!
As for fading effects there are different ways to achieve it depending on the artist’s technique. Usually we would just do a this thing we call it whip-shading with the needles and using dark-to-light colours in attempt to replicate a smooth gradient.
