Why does my kitten cling to my arm, then start biting my hand?

My kitten when i pet him i will put my arm over his body and he'll then cling to my arm. Then he bites on my hand in a playful manner. Why does he do this?

He is trying to play with you. If you are going to arm wrestle with him, use a long rubber glove. Otherwise, eventually they will draw blood because they play seriously and grow up! Or, you can get him a kicking toy and refuse to arm wrestle. I don't do it because I have no desire for one of mine to come up and start biting my arms or feet. ^_^
