Thinking about getting a tattoo? Don't just dip your toe in the water; jump in pits deep with a trendy armpit tattoo. People everywhere are inking themselves up on one of the most sensitive areas of the human body that is not NSFW. It looks pretty cool, but it does make me wonder—who gets to see these? They're probably the perfect discrete tattoo if you're trying to hide it from Mom and Dad but just don't go to the beach with them cause they'll likely see it right away. Still it's pretty cool how creative some of these can be.

But it's still cool. Would you ever try it? Definitely looks painful but seems to be a fun and easy way to have a creative tattoo you can hide if you need to.
