And one of the more popular tattoos are the upper back tattoos and for a good reason. The upper back is a very nice location for all tattoos because it is flat and has a lot of area to work with. You can put smaller stylish tattoos around the upper back or you can extend a full back tattoo up to the neck or arms.
In fact, going with an upper back tattoos is a great way to get started if you don’t have one yet. And I say this because the upper back seems for most folks, the least painful part of the body to place a tattoo on. However, I’m NOT saying it won’t be uncomfortable or painful! It depends on the person and the threshold for pain.
Another good reason for an upper back tattoos if of course that you can hide it with clothing so your boss or the world doesn’t see your ink when you don’t want them to see it.
Some folks prefer to have a medium sized tattoo placed on their shoulder blade area. You could even use both shoulder blades and create a mirror imaged tattoos for great effect. Those tattoos could be butterfly wings, angel wings, fairy wings or other similar tattoo designs. Another way to do it is to place these mirror imaged tattoos on either side of your spine. When done right, it is a beautiful pattern to show off.
Many guys prefer to use the shoulder blade area for symbolic tattoos. It can be animal tattoos or other tattoos that symbolizes the family, membership, beliefs or strengths. Something that reinforces the guy’s personal identity.
