Rocket tattoos can come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. Because of this, the rocket tattoo can nearly be inked anywhere on the body. Rocket tattoos can be inked on the arms, legs, back, chest, or shoulders. Although the rocket comes in a basic shape, there are a variety of different ways to add a unique twist to your rocket.
