Planning to get inked on a part of your anatomy that displays your playful and sexy side? As a location on your body that is not too secret nor too exposed, the shoulder is a great choice. The placement of the shoulder tattoo makes all the difference. A touch of mystery works well in ink designs, letting the world have just a peek at your tattoo, and not more. When you are in the mood for fun and excitement, display your shoulder tattoo with nice off-shoulder dresses or tops with spaghetti straps.
