What is it with animal tattoos that everybody wants them? These tattoos have been on the skins of people for a long time, and even longer on their paintings, sculptures and carvings. In fact, cave paintings from the Paleolithic age showing animals are a good piece of evidence that shows how far the close relationship between these creatures and human art goes.
The first one is the empathy or affect they feel towards a particular animal. Even when this seems to be a little shallow, it is a very common reason. The other reason is that people usually feel represented by or reflected in a virtue or characteristic of a particular animal.
Arm bands constitute a very popular type of tattoo, because they fit perfectly in some parts of the human anatomy. As their name implies, arm band tattoos can be perfectly worn around the arms, but they are not strictly limited to this part of the body. You can wear an arm band tattoo in other cylindrical body parts as the legs, the ankles and the wrists. In some cases, they will also look good in some areas like the upper back, right under the neck, and in the lower back.
Lower back tattoos are very similar to arm bands, with the small difference that they usually tend to have the central part a little lower than the sides, although this rule isn't true in every case. These tattoos are among the most popular for girls and are usually associated with sensuality.
