Italian Girls Always Get Tattoos on This Unexpected Part of Their Bodies

I got my first tattoo about a year and a half ago. A friend had been offered a spot at a press day with a coveted London-based tattoo artist Gabby Colledge, but she couldn’t attend and kindly passed the opportunity along to me. Off I popped to the same-day appointment without a second thought. That was the day I was finally going to get inked. I’ve always been a “throw caution to the wind” kind of person, and getting a tattoo felt like no big deal. With careful planning, I knew I could get one that not only looked cute but could also be covered with the move of my arm.

The area in question was above my elbow on the inside right of my arm. Visible but not so visible that if I regretted it after, I would be forced to stare at it on a daily basis. A year and a half later (and two more tattoos later), I’m still happy with my choice (see below). As it goes, I’m not the only one who thinks the inner arm is the ideal tattoo spot—I’ve noticed that Italian girls seem to have a serious obsession with it too.
