Are tribal armband tattoos bad luck?

Armband tattoos encircle the bicep and are a popular type of tattoo as they bring out the tone of the bicep and make it look lean or muscular. It is flattering for both men and women and symbolizes different meanings. The main purpose is to identify a tribe or family tree and was used as a marker to bring family members together in the afterlife.

The design is bold and nice with simple lines for composite art that includes the sun, moon, and stars that combine the elements of nature, making it very popular. The most convenient part of getting an armband tattoo is the location, as it can be hidden under your shirt sleeves.

Surrounding the entire biceps with a tattoo is believed to bring bad luck. The reality is that because of the contour of the arm it is difficult to surround it completely. It is much easier for a tattoo artist to leave some space than to destroy the tattoo design by completely surrounding it.

Nowadays armband tattoos are more artistic than symbolic. They are perfect for the bicep because it flows freely and looks good at any angle. Today’s designs include bold solid patterns with swirling lines.

The least painful area to get a tattoo is the outer arm and it is probably the reason most people get their shoulder and upper arm tattooed. Be careful with the inner part of the arm where the skin is more sensitive, this area can be a bit painful.
