Scorpion Tattoos
Scorpions are deadly and can stop/scare anyone dead in their tracks. As scorpion tattoos are popular among men, do not copy a design as your tattoo. Try to incorporate your own ideas to enhance a design you like or ask your tattoo artist for suggestions.

Depending on the size and intricate design of the tattoo, the tattoo artist will decide whether you require one or more sessions to complete it. For a small tribal tattoo (without shading), it won't take the artist more than an hour or so. However, if the tattoo is covering the upper, lower, or entire arm, the artist will advice you to take more than one sessions. Always consult with an experienced tattoo artist so that your arm tattoo is timeless.
