It seems that the demand of wrist tattoos, especially amongst women is rising by the day. For a girl to have a tattoo is no longer considered a faux pas. To get a tattoo on, wrists are considered as the coolest body part as they generally have less fat and are a sensitive part of the body. Thus the process may turn out to be a bit painful when the ink is injected into the skin.
