Lower Back Tattoo Designs - Growing Popularity

Lower back tattoo designs are becoming the most popular among females. One reason is this location is one of the easiest to conceal if you work in an environment that frowns upon body art. The other is its appeal to the opposite sex.

The back of the neck, shoulder and hip areas are also common places for women to get tattoos, but men readily admit that one of the most sensual places for a tattoo is the lower back region. Seeing a portion of a tattoo peeking out above the pant line has a certain mystique for the opposite sex. This is also true for women!

Some of the most popular lower back tattoo designs are often shaped in such a manner as to resemble a dragon fly, with the main design situated at the center of the back and continuing to the left and right, with another portion moving down the spine. At a distance, some would say it resembles a certain part of female anatomy, and that is why it is so visually appealing to men.

Another reason for their appeal is lower back tattoo designs actually enhance the natural curvature of the body, and can make a waist appear smaller while accentuating the hips and backside. Let's face it, if you've got it, flaunt it!

Butterflies, flowers, angels, faeries, leaves and vines are some of the most popular designs. Tribal art is making its way into the scene as well, with symbols weaved into intricate scrolls and patterns.

Winged creatures are also good candidates for the lower back, as they can be stretched across from hip to hip if desired. This is the flattest spot possible for an artist to work on, and the easiest. To some it is also the less painful area, but everyone is different when it comes to pain tolerance, so don't take my word for it.

If you decide on lower back tattoo designs, take your time choosing. If one design is appealing to you now, ask yourself if it will be appealing ten years from now. Put some deep thought into why you want a certain design. Any tattoo should be a reflection of the person who wears it.

Choose a design that will reflect you and your personality. Make sure it will be one you will enjoy forever, as it will be considered permanent. If you have to, work with your artist to come up with the perfect design. It may cost a little more, but having a totally customized design will ensure you are getting exactly what you want.

Another aspect is color choice. Some colors will fade quicker than others and touch-ups will be needed, depending on how much sun your tattoo will see. Most females adore a good tan, so be prepared and make sure you use sunscreen.
