Thanks for choosing this gallery of back tattoos! If you are here, I assume you are about to get a tattoo yourself. Is it going to be your first one? If I am guessing right, you should start by choosing the style of design: think whether you prefer a colorful tattoo or black and gray fine line, whether you want something old-school or modern, etc. Now if you already have some back tattoos, I suggest you continue with the same style, because otherwise you might end up looking as somebody’s sketch book. Again, this is just my personal opinion…
The second thing you have to decide about is the exact placement of your tattoo. Upper back tattoo is a great choice for at least one reason: it is easy to hide it at work and to make visible at a party. Classic shirts, jackets and simple sweaters- they all cover up back tattoos. And if you are going to some club or “black and tight” party, you can always choose a dress with a revealing back – those look great when they uncover a tattoo. Now surely, this tip applies for females only. And as about men… Well, if you want your tattoo to show off you will have to spend more time shitless or get some sleeveless tops.
Now let’s talk about lower back tattoos. Although in my personal opinion they look really attractive, the tattoos placed on the lower part of the back have a pretty bad reputation – they are called tamp stamps! And why is it so? Well it all started years ago, thanks to some trashy girls who had tattoos on that spot. Wearing revealing closes, these ladies used to bend over in front of men, trying both to seduce them and to send a signal that they might be available. This sounds pretty archaic, but the sad truth is that this kind of girls has not vanished from the face of earth. And I think they might be there, to ruin the reputation of girls with lower back tattoos, for quite a while to come. So if you are planning on getting a tattoo on this notorious spot, you would better be prepared for some critical comments. But if you think about it- there will always be people who do not like you. And it is better to be criticized for doing what you want, than for not acting!
Thanks for choosing this gallery of tattoo ideas! Although I do know a few girls who have chosen a tattoo designs based solely on its look, most people agree that meaning is just as important. They want a tattoo that would represent the values they hold onto, their moral code and believes. In the end, some people just want a tattoo that would reflect and represent their personality. If you belong to this latter category and believe in astrology, you should consider getting a design that stylishly depicts your zodiac sign. Welcome to our tattoo ideas website!
