The above-elbow tattoo is the ink trend of the summer and we're in LOVE

Eyeing up where you might get your next tattoo?

Consider just above the back of your elbow.

Upper-arm ink might have been considered masculine-looking in the past but we keep seeing gals with gorgeous ink just above their elbow on the back of their arm and it's making us want to get in on the trend too.

It might seem a little unlikely but it's more subtle than tatting your forearm or wrist and feels a little more secret too.

Not sure about the placement? Go for something dainty. There's nothing to stop you building on it if you decide you want to do more with the spot.
