Simple Rainbow Tattoos

You can get a simple geometric or line-based tattoo on your forearm. Alternatively, you can get a tattoo of a word or name written in simple handwriting. There are both small and large tattoos that will look great there, but more prominent tattoos will stand out from the crowd. Choose a design that uses only black ink to avoid the tattoo becoming too complicated.

What is the truth about rainbow?

Rainbows occur when light passes through a spectrum – in most cases, raindrops – and, as a result, is broken up and refracted into individual colors.

Do Rainbow Tattoos Fade?

Rainbow tattoos will eventually fade over time, just like any other tattoo. Nevertheless, they can be touched up easily if needed. Your tattoo should last for many years if you take care of it and protect it from the sun.

Are Rainbow Tattoos Painful?

Pain tolerance varies from person to person. Many people report that rainbow bridge tattoos hurt quite a bit, while others say they don’t. The answer varies from person to person. To see how you react to a smaller tattoo, you can always try it first if you’re worried about the pain.

You can never get to the end of a rainbow

You can never actually get to the end of a rainbow if you hunt for a pot of gold every time you see one! When you move, the rainbow will move as well, since a rainbow is based on the orientation of the observer (you) and the light source (the sun).
