Go bold or go home. Oversized flower designs don't have to feel twee.

Armpits can be a super sensitive area to ink but the pain is totally worth it when you end up with a hyper realistic tattoo that looks beautiful.

Got a sleeve but run out of space? Extend it into your armpit and keep the ink going.
