50+ Elbow Tattoos With Bold Personality

Tattoos are permanent art on the skin that represents who you are. They reflect your point of view, values, and aesthetics. But in terms of placements, some require more attention than others.

The elbow is one of them. Many tattooists have a bitter-sweet relationship with elbow tattoos. On the one hand, the elbow is a unique and angular area full of possibilities. You can use the elbow as the center to form a radiating shape, or you can create something that looks different when you bend or flex the elbow.
