I would have suggested the lower back until I read some of the comments here
I hadn't thought of it that way at all.
My reason for voting for the lower back is because you can decide easily when not to show it.
The problem with a shoulder tattoo is finding the right clothes to reveal it properly when you want to display it.
And if you have it on your ankle it could make life difficult if you want to wear a skirt rather than trousers to a smart event.
Maybe have it a little higher up on your back to avoid the ribald remarks?
I have tattoos around my upper arms and they are so easy to live with. The only sleeve length that is awkward is T-shirt length, but I don't wear
Oh, if you do get your tattoo on your back (where you can't reach), have someone handy to scratch round it for you - they itch like mad but you
can't scratch them directly or you'll spoil them. Savlon anti-septic cream helps a lot to alleviate the itch.
Good luck - they don't hurt much and you get a wonderful 'buzz' from having one done.
