In general , hands, feet and necks are more difficult to tattoo and do not heal as well. Think about how much you use your hands, wash your hands, and wearing socks, shoes, rubbing against a new tattoo. This makes the healing process very tricky and you will most likely need more than one touch up. Many artists will refuse to tattoo the neck, hands or feet. It is up to the individual artist as to whether they will take on these tattoo requests.
