I talk to you ladies most often, so I figured I'd ask here. If you're getting a wrist tattoo, with words...which direction should they face? Where you can read them, or everyone else can....hope that makes sense...lol

I believe it should be with the letters facing upwards toward your palm, so when you lift your arm the tattoo is right side up. I know a few people with wrist tattoos and all of them are like that

They should be facing your wrist so someone else would be able to read them.  My husband is a tattoo artist and hates it when someone demands he do it the other way.  It's like asking a publisher to print your book upsidown.  I also have both of my wrists done and the both face the wrist and were done by different artists.

All the ones I have seen the tattoos were facing so the person who had them could read them

I'm getting one done in the next month or so, and it will be so that I can read it.
