If you are looking for a small space on which to place a tattoo the elbow is a good idea. Circular designs look especially beautiful with the elbow as the center of the design. When you move your hands or are engaged in any activity you can showcase your beautiful elbow tattoo to the world.
Elbow Tattoos are of many kinds, based on what kind of theme you want to portray, but most of them involve designing around the circular shape of an elbow.
You can get inked with a wide variety of elbow tattoo designs either using a single color, two colors, a play of rich and complex shades, or a rainbow burst of colors. Mexican tattoo designs look great when you get them inked on the elbow, and flower and skull theme designs are the top pick when it comes to Mexican flavored elbow tattoo ideas. You can also got funky modern twists on a traditional Mexican skull tattoo by getting inked with a design that shows a skull wearing headphones. You can creatively use the surface area around the elbow, either by filling in the area, or keeping the heart of the design empty. Quirky designs such as a band-aid reminding you of the many times you have fallen and hurt your elbow as a kid, or a design with comic book sounds inked in colorful patterns also make great elbow tattoo ideas. The circular shape of spider webs and their neat interlocking design also make them popular as tattoo design ideas for elbows.
