Why the wrist is a cool place to get a tattoo on:
You can easily hide your tattoo by wearing a bracelet or watch. (or long sleeves)
They are in plain sight most of the time so you can show them very easy. This way your wrist tattoo is a means to express yourself with a particular design that fits your personality.
They usually are cheaper to get because they are smaller.
The wrist is an ideal area for a small tattoo. Most other locations on the body demand larger tattoos.
Your tattoo will give you much joy because you can look at it all the time. This is why words like a mantra or motto are great ideas for wrist tattoos. Your inked wrist will inspire you or remind you of something important in your life constantly.
Things to keep in mind when having a wrist tattoo:
They might fade away sooner because the wrist area is liable to influences like the weather. So after a period of time touch ups might be necessary.
It seems getting a tattoo on your wrist is a little more painful then on most other body parts. The skin is close to the bone on the inside of the arm and the wrist tissue isn’t very dense. So in theory getting tattooed on the wrist will be more painful. In fact many people say the pain was the same or even less so it’s just personal.
Because the wrist area is used and exposed a lot the healing of a wrist tattoo will probably take a little longer.
In some situations you’ll need to hide your tattoo, for example when applying for a job.

Located on his left shoulder is a big Maori tribal design in a partial sleeve from his shoulder to halfway down his biceps. The design is exquisitely detailed with rounded waves as signs of the twists and turns in life. One of the sources says that the Maori tribal tattoo was done by a famous Dutch tattoo artist, Henk Schiffmacher, while another source says that it was done by Te Ranginu Netana in New Zealand. The Maori tattoo is thought to represent Williams’ life.
Williams’ right arm is designed with a face of a lion with inscriptions above and below it. The tattoo is a representation of a young male lion, the universally accepted sign of power, with detailed features. “Elvis, grant me serenity”, are the words inscribed above it, while “Born to be mild”, are found underneath. Just like the cross, the lion tattoo is also for protection.
Another tattoo found in Robbie Williams’ body is the Eye of Horus, the ancient Egyptian falcon god, also called the “all-seeing eye”. Williams had this tattoo done at the back of his neck in 2004 as a shield from evil spirits and for good luck.
Also believed for protection is what Robbie calls the “Christian.” It was done in New Zealand in July 2000. The “Christian” is a depiction of the crucifixion – Jesus Christ on the cross with Mary and some angels.
In May 2003, Robbie had a pair of swallows tattooed on his abdomen. These tattoos are a symbol for freedom and loyalty and probably an expression of Williams’ love for these abstract concepts.
Under his left arm, Robbie Williams has a Crest tattoo, a tattoo of the coat of arms of the town of Burslem. Burslem is known as the Mother Town, and one of the six towns that form the current city of Stroke-on-Trent in Staffordshire, in the Midlands of England. It is the place where Robbie and his family moved to after he was born.
On Robbie’s lower back is the musical score for the chorus of the well-known Beatles classic, “All You Need Is Love.”
Aside from the above-mentioned pictorial tattoos, Robbie also has word tattoos all over his body.

Many people today are getting Celtic tattoos. These ancient symbols have awakened some real sense of meaning. Perhaps this is because the modern world does not have much to do with tradition and symbols and there is a human need for these things. This is what writers like Joseph Campbell have said. Although he wasn’t talking about tattoos, that is definitely one way that people are reclaiming ancient practices.
What is the origin of Celtic symbols such as knotwork, spirals, animal forms and crosses? In some cases, it goes back hundreds of years to books like the Book of Kells. The original version of this beautiful illuminated manuscript is now in Dublin, at Trinity College. It contains many of the Celtic style spirals, knotwork and zoomorphic (animal) images that have become so popular as tattoos.
Some Celtic symbols, however, go back even further in time. The Celts can be traced as far back as around 500 B.C. They did not keep written records, so much of what we know about them comes from either oral tradition or from what their enemies, such as the Romans, wrote about them. Historians believe that the Celts at some point moved to lands such as Britain and Ireland that were originally occupied by earlier, unknown people. These earlier tribes created some of the early symbols, such as triple spirals, and certain types of crosses, that the Celts would later adapt as their own.
There is no doubt, however, that the Celts developed an artistic style of their own.
The fact that they took some of their images from earlier civilizations is not unusual.
Every culture in history has done this –the Romans, for example, borrowed from the Greeks, who borrowed from the Egyptians, and so on.
Perhaps what is most distinctive about Celtic artwork is the focus on symbols that have to do with infinity, or the ever-repeating cycles of life. This can be seen most clearly in Celtic knots, which beautifully illustrate the connected and never-ending movement of all things. Spirals also convey this kind of idea. Today we see many people wearing tribal type Celtic tattoo designs based on knotwork or spirals.
More complex Celtic artwork, such as the zoomorphic animal images also use spiral designs and these are often rendered in modern Celtic tattoos. When it comes to tattoos, these images can be made even more striking by using vivid colors. Animals depicted in traditional Celtic designs include birds, reptiles, horses and dragons, all of which can make great tattoos. Other images that are popular as Celtic tattoos include harps, Celtic crosses and swords.
Some people get Celtic tattoos to express their heritage, but this isn’t always the case. In today’s multicultural world, you don’t have to be of Irish, Scottish or Welsh ancestry to appreciate Celtic art and people of all backgrounds get Celtic tattoos.
With such a rich and diverse wealth of material to choose from, it’s likely that Celtic tattoo designs will remain popular for a long time.
