The palms are a tricky area to tattoo and to endure as an client. Palm skin is very different than other parts of the body and because it's constantly in motion, a tattoo needs to be applied in a specific way in order for the tattoo to hold. When tattooing a palm, you need to stick to bold, black images with large amounts of open space. In general, large and legible designs that have a heavy outline are your best bet.
