It just another place to throw some ink. Traditionally people in the business world scoff at tattoos that are in full sight. So if it's a very important tat, say a dove dedicated to you mother that just passed away, it's like saying, who cares what people think, i loved her and here's proof that everyone can see.

I have a tattoo on my doesn't mean anything. I just liked that design in that place. IF I really wanted to stretch and say there was a meaning then probably the "I don't care what people think" would be a good explanation. Also my hand tattoo extends all the way up my depicts flowering vines growing up my arm. But at one time it was just a flower on my hand by my thumb.

It also depends on what design you are talking about - in the past, small crude hand-poked designs, like the markings from dice (the side with three or five points showing) were used by neighborhood youth gangs.

In a military-themed film Cadence, Charlie Sheen's character got 8 Balls tattooed on the backs of his hands as a sign of rebellion, as the army (or whatever service he was in) had put a ban on hand tattoos.

With your hands in the proper places on the saxophone, meaning your three fingers on your left hand on the upper keys, leaving your pinky out and your thumb going behind the instrument, resting near the octave key. Then your right hand rests on top the lower three keys, excluding your pinky the same as before, with your hand curving around the instrument to have your thumb rest under the thumb rest, (which in the diagram provided is near the lower half of the image, inder the part labeled "body".
