People have been telling me I should bulk up a little on the arms, could someone throw me some good exercie's for this.
I was told for the Bi, barbell curls, incline curls and hammer curls. Anything else? But got told to do 5x5, which seems incorect, since that's not adding mass, just strength.

Bicep/Tricep workout for massStrength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength. - Arnold

don't think that the rep ranges are set in stone. under 6 is generally associated with strength, and 6 and over is mass. but hypertrophy is hypertrophy. and 5x5 is a proven, effective routine for both strength and mass.
that being said you need to incorporate the main movements in to your arms routine. i would recommend.
Close Grip Bench Press
For Bis, all curls will do, keep the form pretty tight, and find the rep range that works best for you. When you find something that works, don't change it until the results stop. Good luck.

Hit the triceps hard, skullcrushers, close grip bench, dips....they make up the majority of the mass in the arm...as for the biceps, barbell curls, preachers, hammers...try to limit the number of sets you do per week...you don't need to do 20+ sets a week for your biceps or triceps...12-14 sets/week will probably be enough, so long as you're working hard each set.
