I think you pretty much have to be gorilla kind of hairy before tattoos become pointless. If in doubt you could always ask a tattoo artist for advice (/r/tattoos has a bunch so you could even ask there).
It's more that I keep coming up with things that are understated to begin with, so the hair becomes a big problem.
Also, I sort of am gorilla hairy.
Something really bold and black would show through, but I'm not really looking for a tribal band.
The other thing is that I don't really want them visible by default. At least not at this stage in my career. So of course my forearm would be one of the best places available.
