“Forearms are egotistical,” Clement says, so getting a tattoo there is definitely making a statement. Clement says that having a tattoo in that location means it is very important to the person, since there’s no getting away from it. How appropriate, since Heidi Klum’s tattoo reads “Seal,” which is her husband’s name.
And while a forearm tattoo is pretty noticeable, it’s a “less aggressive form of statement” than getting one on your outer arm, Clement says. It’s a popular place to get a tattoo, because almost anything will look good (symbols, script, images).
