The Back Tattoo: Does It Hurt?

Getting a tattoo will hurt; there is no way around that. However, some parts of the body are extremely sensitive to pain, and only the bravest of brave should even consider tattoos in those zones and like we said numerous times before, each person will have different pain tolerance levels. The general rule of thumb though says that if you’re extremely ticklish in an area, it will probably hurt really bad to have it tattooed.

Since the back is such a large area, each portion of the back will have different pain levels. It is common knowledge to everyone even to those who are not interested in tattoos that the spine or the middle portion of the back will be extremely painful since that is where the skin meets the backbone. Shoulder blades too are also painful since the skin is also touching the bone. The least painful area for a back tattoo would be both sides of the lower back since there are a lot of fat and muscles in those places to absorb the shock you might experience from the needle.

The Lower Back Tattoo

A lower-back tattoo (also known as a tramp stamp) is a tattoo that became popular in the late 90s and early 2000s and gained a reputation for its erotic appeal. They are sometimes accentuated by low-rise jeans and crop tops.

Lower-back tattoos were popularized in the early 2000s, in part owing to the influence of female celebrities, including Britney Spears, Aaliyah, Christina Ricci, and Pamela Anderson. The popularity of low-rise jeans and crop tops may have also spurred the increase in lower-back tattoos. Another appeal of tattooing the lower back is that there is little fat there, lessening the chance that images will become misshapen over time. Also, the lower back is often concealed, providing women with the choice of when to reveal their tattoo. Although some males have lower-back tattoos, including some celebrities, they are generally not acquired by men.

The Various Designs For A Lower Back Tattoo

In all honesty, we personally think that since the back is such a large canvas for any tattoo artist even those who are deemed to be professionals or experts, almost all if not all, tattoo designs are perfectly adaptable for a back tattoo. The back offers one of the flattest surfaces on our body to make the tattoo not warp when we gain or lose weight. This advantage has been quoted by all artists time and time again which makes it a somewhat general consensus in the tattoo community and body art industry.

The Angels Tattoo

Angels are the courier of heaven and they are revered for their kindness and faith. They signify a special meaning wherever they are used, in pictures, paintings, and tattoos. Angel tattoos have been one of the most favored tattoo designs since the origination of this form of body art, with both men and women having these designs featured on their bodies. The fact is that they are not only revered for their beauty but also for their symbolic meaning as they stand for one’s faith and belief in God, as angels have always been directly linked with the Heavenly Father.

If you are one of those people who are thinking that an angel art is just a mere decoration on the body, then you are definitely wrong. An angel art is very meaningful and it is symbolizing something, depending on its entire design. In relation to this, here are some of the meanings and symbolism that you should know:

  • Beauty – Since angels are known to be very good people who are not capable of doing some wrong things, it is no longer surprising why an angel art is symbolizing beauty.
  • Protection – Angels are known to be the guardians of everything that is created by God in this world. Hence, if you strongly believe that you have a guardian angel that is always there to protect you from bad things, then wearing an angel art tattoo is perfect for you.

The Tribal Tattoo

It is quite undeniable that tribal tattoo designs are considered one of the, if not, oldest tattoo design in existence. It has existed almost the same time when early human beings formed groups and tribes to live together and share their strife to survive on our once savage planet. Each group of people has their own design of tribal tattoos to signify their tribe of origin and to differentiate a friend from a foe. These designs would then morph to fit in our modern society; a society that aims to relinquish the idea of “friend or foe”.

People with influential social status wore tattoos which were big in size while smaller tattoos implied lower social stature. They were used as an identification mark in certain ancient tribes, with these marks being used to identify the members of the clan in life and after death. Moreover, tribal tattoos had a story to tell, with images of animals, warriors and natural forces being featured in them to throw light on an event in the life of the bearer.
