10 Best Forearm Tattoos: The Best Tattoo Ideas for Forearms

The beginning of the arm, your body's connection to the hand, the trusty forearm. The forearm is a great place for a tattoo because of all the room it provides.  Plus, the forearm is one of the least painful areas to get tattooed, which is great because large tattoos in sensitive areas lead to prolonged pain. A forearm tattoo means a big, great looking tattoo, with minimal pain.

Forearm tattoos are also perfect for showing off, while still retaining your ability to hide it, if need be. That is why to celebrate the awesome forearm tattoo we put together our list of the 10 Best Forearm Tattoo Ideas.

So, take a seat,  kick up your legs, and use your trusty forearm to lift your phone closer, and check out our list of the 10 Best Forearm Tattoo Ideas.

 

#10: Bushido Code Forearm Script Tattoo

The forearm contains the most important muscles when it comes to skillfully wielding a sword. This makes the forearm a fitting location for a tattoo honoring the Bushido code. The forearm tattoo below is so clean it looks like it was cut in with the precision of a razor sharp Katana, the Bushi's weapon of choice.

#8: Wrap Around Snake Forearm Tattoo

The forearm isn't just the front, it's the "Front, back, and side to side!". That why wrap around forearm tattoos work so great. As you can see with this flowing snake tattoo, it spans multiple sides of the forearm, making this forearm tattoo look beautiful from all the right angles.

#7: The Great Wave Forearm Tattoo

The Great Wave is one of the most recognizable pieces of art in the world, but it looks more unique than ever in the forearm tattoo below. The way the wave seems to form just past the elbow, then flow down the forearm toward the hand really catches the eye, and adds a real feeling of movement to this classic work of art.

#3: Biomechanical Forearm Tattoo

This forearm tattoo is also a bit of an optical illusion, the way the skin looks like it goes over the tattoo, rather than the other way around. This biomechanical tattoo will also help in an apocalyptic robot uprising, as you will be able to make our new overlords believe you are one of them.

'Roses are red, and they are pink', "I would say they are the best forearm tattoos, what do you think?' However you feel about my feeble attempt at poetry, we can all agree that this forearm tattoo is breathtaking. The way the colors pop yet blend together gives this tattoo an almost fairytale quality.

#1: Zeus Forearm Tattoo

He sits atop Mount Olympus, and this Zeus forearm tattoo sits atop our Best Forearm Tattoos list. The tattoo is done in truly epic style, and the gray and white give this Zeus tattoo mythic undertones.
