Underboob Tattoo: Is It Seriously Painful? If So, Is It Worth It?

If you are in search of eye-catching and attractive ink, the underboob tattoo may be the right choice for you. They’ve become very popular in recent years; it could have something to do with singer Rihanna’s viral tattoo of the goddess Isis, or it could just be the versatility that’s attracting new clients. The location lends itself to a wide variety of options — sometimes big and bold, sometimes small and subtle, these versatile tattoos can be easy to conceal and equally as easy to show off. These tattoos are usually placed directly under the breasts but can expand between the cleavage or over and beyond the sternum, depending on the design.

Tattooing underneath the breasts means that the tattoo will probably have to go over the sternum. This brings up a couple of points; one is that it’s fairly painful to get a tattoo over bone, and some people claim that the sternum is one of the most painful places to get a tattoo. Tattooing over extra-sensitive areas requires more precision; it is much more difficult and time-consuming.


Due to the difficulty of tattooing in this region, you should be selective when looking for a tattoo artist. You will want someone with experience giving tattoos on this area of the body. Chances are, you will also have to show your artist how your breasts sit without a bra so that they can accurately place the tattoo. Therefore, you will want to choose someone you’re comfortable with — a professional artist you can trust in a vulnerable setting. Females may want to look for a female artist and may want to ask for a private room if one is available at the studio.

Designs You Can Do With The Underboob Tattoo

Despite only offering a small area to work on, the underboob tattoo can be as creative looking as other tattoo designs. You just need to imagine a design that is striking and detailed that you can bear under the needle.

Tribal Patterns

Tribal motifs dominated arts and culture for centuries, if not millennia. Not long after, they have also dominated the skins of powerful men to signify their status, power, and influence within the community. Their interweaving and interlocking designs made tribal tattoos even more daunting and thus also made the wearer be feared and honored in their society. In other cultures, having a tribal tattoo signifies a boy or girl has turned into a full-fledged man or woman. It is an initiation right that all boys and girls must face when they are coming of age. The pain of having a large tribal tattoo be inked on your body must be felt by all boys in some cultures. This is the reason as to why tribal tattoo design still has a significant foothold from then until now. It has been deeply ingrained in our united culture as a human race that it would be foolish to not have it as an option for a tattoo design.

The mandala has basically been the international symbol of Indian culture and most especially the Hindu sector of Indian society and you can clearly see why since most of their historic structures are fully adorned by mandalas in one form or another.
