Owl tattoos are open to customization. You can have them in solid black-and-gray or in a colorful watercolor style. You can also complement them with different designs like a compass, a clock, or even a book. As for the location, well, it depends on the design that you go for. For an owl tattoo with folded wings, the biceps, legs, ribs, and forearms make excellent canvases. For an owl tattoo with open wings, the back and chest areas are recommended.
