Significance of Arm Tattoos

Arm tattoos always have carried a wealth of meaning with them over the years. For example, a tattoo in the forearm of a woman in Borneo indicated her skill that was capable of uplifting her demand in marriage.
Tattoos encircling the wrist and the fingers had spiritual significance attached to it with the people believing it to be capable of driving away illness. It was seen as a sign of criminality in the East. The triads of Hong Kong pictured a black dragon on the left bicep and a white tiger on the right.
In many countries, the arm tattoos still carry a negative image. It is said that the majority of prisoners in the USA have at least one tattoo design on them. But today with the tattoo artists mixing the designs of the East with the West, they are seen as fashionable.
