Bicep tattoos are less frequently seen than other areas such as the forearm and shoulder blade. There’s a few simple reasons why tattoos aren’t generally found on the bicep.
- The Bicep Area Is Super Sensitive — Nearly EVERYONE is pain sensitive to tattoo needles, to a degree. And when you couple universal pain sensitivity with an area of the body that’s more sensitive than say, the upper arm shoulder area, most people shy away from it. The bicep is one of these sensitive areas.
- Biceps Are Often Concealed By Clothing — No matter what kind of shirt you’re wearing, it generally always covers the bicep. So “showing off” the tattoo becomes difficult.
