One of the most popular locations for women to place a tattoo is on the lower back. And these lower back tattoo designs can be placed to the side or right smack in the middle of the back. They also can come in various sizes. From very small to quite larger ones that can spread from side to side all across the lower back.
Now any design is absolutely OK for the lower back. In the past, the more popular ones were often Celtic or Tribal. While those lower back tattoo designs are still prominent and attractive. There are certainly other designs to choose from these days.
However, I urge you not to rush through the process of choosing the right lower back tattoo design for you. Please take your time and think about what tattoo design has the most significance and deeper meaning for you because let’s face it, it is going to be a permanent body art. But you don’t have to choose a traditional design if you don’t want to. The final choice is yours so be absolutely sure the final design is the one you want.
And be sure to go to a good tattoo artist. One that can add personal detailings and styling that makes your tattoo “sing.” A great tattoo artist can make your animal look alive and very realistic. Some people may prefer their tattoos look a little more cartoonish. But really, the ultimate judge that should decide what tattoo looks best on you is… you!
How about words? Many famous Hollywood starlets have just words tattooed on their body. And it is quickly becoming more popular as lower back tattoo designs. And no wonder, the lower back is a flat canvas that you can write special words and meanings. Many times you can even add some art to the words to give it that extra special pizazz.
Don’t forget to consider symbols too. Symbols like moons, hearts, stars, religious symbols and peace symbols are just perfect for the lower back tattoo designs. A lot of women love flowers because they symbolize love, romance and feminine. And flowers would look fantastic on the lower back but really, flowers would look great anywhere on your body. But you don’t need to limit yourself to flowers of course!
Other tattoo designs to consider for your lower back can be of nature itself that has a special meaning. Such as leaves, acorns, snowflakes, pine cones or even a dragon-fly perching on a single blade of grass. I have seen wonderful and awe-aspiring images of nature such as rivers, lakes, forests and mountains spread across the lower back.
There are many places to look for that perfect design for your lower back. You could go to your local tattoo studio and check their portfolios. Or you could continue looking on the Internet. Many people have a general idea what they would like and then describe it to their favorite tattoo design artist who of course is a naturally talented artist that can draw it down so you can look at it for approval.
But like I always say, please choose the tattoo design wisely. Also it is really a very good idea to get the best tattoo artist that you can. A cheaper one may give you a lifetime of regrets. And good to great tattoo artists won’t be shy about their talents and will show you their portfolio upon request. After all, they want you to be confident in their abilities and that is the best way to determine that. Are the pictures, images and other tattoo designs by that artist very good? Chances are then you found someone that you would like to draw that canvas on your lower back.
And of course, always make sure your tattoo designer is up to date on the latest policies on sterilization of equipment. How the needles and ink are dispensed and used. And if there is anything that makes you feel uncomfortable, then listen to your feelings and find another studio and artist.
Lower back tattoo designs are very personal and usually hold special meanings to the wearer. You should treat the whole process very seriously because once that tattoo design goes on your lower back, it can be very hard and expensive to get it off if you changed your mind later on. So make your tattoo design a good one. One that you absolutely love and adore and wouldn’t hesitate to show off to your lover and close friends. A great tattoo design is one that is very meaningful to you and is a perfect expression of who you are. And besides, lower back tattoos are very sexy!
