Really want a tattoo but want to keep it on the down low (DL)?
We get it, depending on your job (and personality) some people love to show off their beautiful body art whilst others would rather have their inking hidden or just a little more discreet.
Whether it’s for your family, your job or you just think discreet tats are that much cuter, we’ve pulled together 9 tattoo placement ideas. which you could hide from your boss.
Don’t worry — it’ll be our little secret!
The side of your ribs
Your bra will be covering it most of the time, so a tattoo over here will be a sexy surprise when you choose to go bra-less.
And with your clothes on top no-one will ever know of your delicate inking…
A classic favourite.
Although not completely hidden, a small wrist tattoo can be pretty discreet especially once you put on your watch and arm candy.
The upper thigh
The thigh is such a big area that you could get a little more creative with your delicate inking.
No matter how big you decided to go, it will still remain largely unseen under your work clothes.
Behind the ear
This is another discreet area for girls, as when your hair is down it should cover the tattoo.
Unless someone is kissing your neck at the office Christmas party (or your rocking a ponytail) this placement can remain discreet.
On the crook of your arm
Another arm tattoo and yet again, this is one of the least discreet options.
But we love small script tattoos on the crook of your arm. It can look so feminine and let’s face it, your bag handle will be covering it most times anyway…
Below the hairline
This one is bound to be painful… But we think it’s worth it.
It’s subtle, pretty and easily hidden if you have long hair.
The upper back
Or the spine, is a great place to get thinner, longer tattoos
Anywhere on your back will be covered at most times by your clothes, so it’s quite a safe area to have a dainty tat or to get creative discreetly.
Ribcage (Under your boob)
You could opt for getting inked under just a small portion of one boob (which is the more common option) or go the full monty like Rihanna.
Either way, unlike Rihanna, most people don’t have their underboob on show frequently, so you can bet your boss won’t see this one.
…or the ankle, each are incredibly cute and discreet.
If you live somewhere hot and you live in you havaianas, this is not the one for you.
However here in the UK it’s pretty rainy most year around, so although a foot tattoo wouldn’t be totally hidden from view, (especially in a pair of pumps) it’s not OTT either.
Alternatively, an ankle tattoo is even more discreet.
