Is it safe to get a tattoo on the inside of the wrist?

Asked May 6, 2015, 5:09 PM EDT

I've seen inner wrist tattoos on TV and in the movies, and I know those are fake, but I would like to get tattoos on the inside of my writs. I've heard that it's dangerous and ill advised because the veins are so close to the surface there.

I would like to know if there is any truth to the warnings.
