The Pro's and Con's of a Girl Back Tattoo

Getting a girl back tattoo involves deciding not only what design to choose, where to place it, but also how both of those elements combined can embrace ones own femaleness and personality. I'll focus here on the placement of a girl back tattoo.

Where to get a girl back tattoo? The most common placement for a girl back tattoo has been in the center lower back area, right above, or even in line with, the waist line. With low cut jeans being the latest fad, and tight tees that hike up above the belly button, the lower center area has been an ideal place to display your girl back tattoo.

Pro's of getting a "low-center" girl back tattoo:

-Displaying is ideal with todays clothing trend. The tattoo is both slightly subtle and yet very noticeable when one does see it. For instance many males have gotten "reverse forearm" tattoos in which their tattoo is placed on the underside of the forearm as opposed to the front, more noticeable area. This is both slightly subtle, as first glance you may not see it, but also its not hidden and very visible once one visually zero's in on it. A girl back tattoo placed in the low center area has the same advantages.

Con's of getting a "low-center" girl back tattoo:

-It's unoriginal. Unfortunately the ''lower center" girl back tattoo has been heavily played out. Many girls have followed the trend, and hence it has become more of a fad than an original idea for placement. Tattoos as a whole have become so common that it remains a struggle to find original angles to approach when it comes to both design and placement. Slang terms such as "tramp stamp" have begun to emerge for females donning a girl back tattoo in the low-center area. Some have said in 40 years that slang term will be replaced by "gramp stamp" playing on the notion that the plethora of elderly women who will still be donning the permanent girl back tattoo art in their later years. The popularity and common placement of lower center girl back tattoo lends itself to this type of slang creation.

-Another obvious disadvantage with a low center girl back tattoo is the fact that you are unable to visually see your tattoo, unless you look in a mirror. This is of course the case with all back tattoo's, and if one would like to view their body art frequently, without a mirror, they should consider placement elsewhere.

Possible alternatives:

-If one is absolutely dead set on the low center girl back tattoo, believes that area of permanent placement is right for them, and is content within themselves to rise above slang labels and such, then they should go for it. Other options could include a more unique lower back placement, such as off to one side, or even on the side of the body above the hips. This enables the individual to view their tattoo without the assistance of a mirror. Naturally five years from now a trend could emerge for side hip tattoos, but for now it remains a not very common placement area, and an alternative area for a typical girl back tattoo.

-Another option for the low center girl back tattoo, is to choose a design that is more mural-like, as opposed to a single object like a butterfly or rose. This somewhat lifts you out of the common trend of the single girl back tattoo placed low and center. And the potentiality exists for stretching the design across the back, instead of just centered in the middle.

Whatever you do choose as the placement for your girl back tattoo, it ultimately should be one you are able to be happy with both in the short term and the long term. No matter where you choose your placement area, a good, unique, design can make a huge difference and in any event it's always worth researching to find the right one for you. One that in your eyes would look good no matter where you decide to place it.

Back Tattoo - Guidelines for Choosing

Choosing a back tattoo requires three important guidelines to remember:

1. A back tattoo must be a design which you are OK with not seeing often. Obviously you are placing it on an area which is not going to be visible to you, and when you do want to view it, you'll have to do so with the assistance of a mirror.

This is the major drawback of getting a back tattoo. Often times you will see very elaborate, beautiful back tattoo designs, and it seems odd that the tattoo wearer is the one who can't enjoy viewing it, as others can.

2. Pick a medium to large design for a back tattoo. The back is the one place on the body which is literally a large flat blank canvas. Getting a tiny shamrock or some other small back tattoo design seems almost like a waste of space. Often times people have the same regret after getting a back tattoo: I wish I had gotten it bigger! This is very common. So with a back tattoo, think bigger than you normally would.

3. The back is one of the ideal places for concealment. If you are concerned with concealing your ink, a back tattoo could definitely be for you. It solves many issues of workplace or public appearance, or simply the desire of having a private tattoo, not wanting to flaunt or display it openly.

Choosing a back tattoo can be either an ideal place for a tattoo, or a regrettable place if you're very attached to the artwork or the design you choose.

Lower Back Celebrity Tribal Tattoo Designs

Tattoos, of late, have become a style statement. Tribal tattoo designs have become popular, especially in the last 15 years or so. The tribal designs we see today have their origin in Borneo, Polynesia, the various Native American tribes, the Maoris, and the Celtic tribes. The Hawaiian tribal tattoos consist of geometric motifs, such as squares and rectangles, as well as animals. Sharks and lizards are popular Hawaiian tribal motifs.

Tribal tattoos are replete with unique designs that are tattooed on the shoulder, the armband, wrist, foot, forearm, lower back, and leg. The popular tribal designs are: star, frog, wolf, spider, eagle, butterfly, moon, and scorpion. The bull, heart, tiger, lady bug, and hummingbird are also great tattoo designs.

Tribal tattoo designs are normally not complicated, so you can design your own tattoo. Such tattoos normally use plenty of black ink and the advantage is that they fade less in comparison to other colors. Tribal designs have a great appeal visually, with their patterns interlocking beautifully, and are usually located on the upper arm, the back and the lower back. The lower back is a great place for women to get done small tribal designs.

The disadvantage of tribal designs is that the black ink does not lend itself to removal, and neither can you cover them up with different designs. However, these are very popular designs and are used by both men and women.

The military tattoos, with the logos of the various arms of the armed forces, are more popular with the serving personnel and with men, in general.

Celebrity Tattoos - Who Has the Coolest?

Jennifer Aniston once said, "Quirky is sexy, like scars or chipped teeth. I also like tattoos - they're rebellious." I like tattoos because they make me unique and different than all those same people you see everyday. Jennifer Aniston is only one of the many famous people who like tattoos on their bodies. Angelina Jolie is another example. She is very pretty and those tattoos make her even more gorgeous. That same thing can happen to you if you decide to get a tattoo.

You can get a tattoo like a celebrity, but deciding which one is the best is the hard part. You can look at many famous celebrities and all of their tattoos look good, but only one of them is the best. I did your work for you and decided to compare all the famous tattoos printed by well known celebrities. I compared their tattoos, but I decided to leave the conclusion to you because you are the one who decides what is the best and what is not.

The first one is the most famous and world known - Angelina Jolie. She has quite a few tattoos but the major one is the tattoo of a tiger on her lower back waste that makes her look sexier than ever. It shows her personality. The next one is one more world famous actor - Brad Pitt, who has a picture of something looking like a crown on his back with many other tattoos. One more is David Beckham, who is also very popular in the world. He has a lot of tattoo on his body but I think the major one was the picture of a crucifix with the name of his sons on top and bottom of the crucifix. The last, but not the least nominee is Anna Nicole Smith, who has a colored mermaid on her back lower waist.

Tattoos and Body Art on Hollywood Celebrities

Celebrity tattoos are becoming more and more visible and socially acceptable in mainstream pop culture these days. Angelina Jolie recently voted most sexy woman has plenty of tattoos and is probably the most famous and desirable celebrity with tattoos in Hollywood. Her tattoos to date consist of tribal dragons, a Thai tiger, and various Latin sayings across her shoulders and arms.

This surge in popularity of celebrity tattoos began in the 1960s. Lyle Tuttle the forefather of American tattooing tattooed Janis Joplin. Time was when tattoos were the preserve of those on the fringes of society but now it is not uncommon to see celebrity tattoos. Even super models such as Kate Moss and Sarah O'Hare strut around flashing their body art on the cover of glossy magazines or on the cat walk.

Actor Johnny Depp ranks as heavily tattooed for his caliber of talent and breadth of acting work. His tattooed arms are as often painted to be blank flesh as left with their own tattoos showing and incorporated into the character.

Vin Diesel is covered with a mix of modern tattoos styles, as befitting an underground government secret agent in the movie xXx. The character he plays agent X has one full sleeve, one partial sleeve, chest work and tattoos on his stomach.

As vampire slayer BLADE, Wesley Snipes has tribal blackwork on his arms, chest and back, as well as the sides of his head and the back of his nect. Pamela Anderson had her arm tattooed for real with a barbed wire armband for her role in the movie BARBWIRE. Following her split from husband Tommy Lee, (who is heavily tattooed) she had the "Tommy" tattoo on her finger edited to read "Mommy" in reference to her two sons. She also has tribal tattoos on the small of her back and a tattoo on her ankle.

Musicians have traditionally enjoyed more freedom than actors when it comes to body art. For movie stars having to transform into a different character each time they shoot a movie can be limiting especially if they are playing historical figures. But that has not stopped a lot of actors from getting tattooed in very visible places.

Historically rock stars were renowned for getting tattoos. The band Red Hot Chili Peppers are an example where the band members have a well-developed collection of tattoos. Singer Henry Rollins began his tattoo collection as the lead singer of Black Flag. Eminem continues to add to his tattoo collection but some critics have claimed that it will inhibit him if he wants to play a bigger acting role. Eminem's tattoos are a combination of a style that is typical of Hip Hop and R&B artists such as Justin Timberlake, 50 Cent and Pharrel.

Stupendous Celebrity Tattoos

When deciding whether or not to get a tattoo, the first thing is to think about how the tattoo will remain in the body. Next to consider is what may be the preferred style. Most tattoo parlors have samples of previous design can be changed according to the customer. But what many people enjoy sampling and mimicking what many of those whom we idolize might have been made. Style of clothing, hair dos, things to eat, a place to gather and, yes, even tattoos are often influenced by many celebrities. Some people are more famous than I have tattoos was originally thought. Some may be quite surprising.

As many people know, Angelina Jolie is one of the most popular tattooed actresses today. She flaunts over a dozen tattoos, each with their own meaning. Angelina Jolie is such a fan of tattoos that always have plans for the future. In fact, she made the dragon tattoo the most popular among women. When it comes to tattoos and famous actresses, it's sure that the name of Pamela Anderson will be taken up. Arm band was made popular almost entirely due to Pamela Anderson. He also put emphasis on the barbed wire tattoo as it marks one of the most famous.

Mike Tyson sports a facial tattoo is of Maori influence. While the tattoo did not exactly cause a boom in applied facial tattoos, it was proved between tattoo enthusiasts. Johnny Depp is one of the actors recognize as very tattoos. He was decorated with more than twelve known tattoos with stories behind them. Depp's tattoo on right bicep is the most famous. When Johnny Depp and Wynona Ryder are the same, he had "Wynona Forever" tattooed on his arm. When the relationship ended, has been modified to say "Wino Forever." Examples of good tattoos should be thought through before taking a leap.

Group tattoo was made for those actors in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Each actor received a tattoo of the word "nine" written in elvish script. Tattooed on different areas of the body, and the first tattoo for some, each member has a permanent mark the making of the movies.

Other film celebrity in which we will find many tattoos to admire or copy include Drew Barrymore, Julia Roberts, Gillian Anderson, Alyssa Milano, and Christina Ricci. We can also find tattoos in music artists such as Billy Idol, Eminem, Henry Rollins and Brittany Spears. Kobe Bryant, Dennis Rodman, Anna Kournikova, and Stone Cold Steve Austin make up just a few of the models that flaunt their own ink sport.

This is just an example of some of the tattoos that may be found among the celebrities. These people will be recognized and appreciation for their style and personal. Many of them have caused booms in the tattoo trends throughout the year with a special emphasis on design that resembles closely their own. This is not unusual or unheard of by tattoo artists to receive requests for tattoos that are visible such as the one sported by the hip celebrity of the age.

Ben Affleck Tattoos

When one thinks of Ben Affleck the first thing that comes to mind is a Hollywood hunk not a man that has several tattoos covering his shoulders. arms and back. Most people are not aware of Ben's little tattoos collection, the main reason behind that is Ben is ashamed of his ink now. He admits he got most of his ink when he was around 16 and wishes he would not have chosen half of the designs he did.

Below is a list of some of Ben's tattoo collection that he now regrets.

1. Barb wire across his right bicep.

2. A dolphin located somewhere on his body covering up the name of his High School Sweetheart.

3. A huge cross on his left arm.

4. A fish intertwined with a skull and crossbones on his right arm.

5. The initials "OV" on his shoulder blade with MOH NON TE written above it and TA OR underneath it.

Ben majorly regrets all of his tattoos and does not have a problem admitting it. He is even interested in getting his tattoos removed by a laser.

"I was young. It was fun and cool. I'm sorry now, but it is a good lesson in decisions that have important and long repercussions."

Ben also says that he tries to stay away from roles that require him to be shirtless or wear short sleeves because he hates the make up you have to wear to cover up tattoos. He states that the process is very time consuming and a little strange. "It's the equivalent of being sand-blasted, but it leaves the tattoo undetectable."

The main reason Ben is ready to get rid of his tattoos has to do with his acting.

"They get in the way of my being able to play someone else. Every time I'm sitting in a makeup chair or putting on a costume I'm reminded I'm me, not the person I'm supposed to be playing."

Even though Jenna has several tattoos it does not take away from her sex appeal some say it adds to it. So one may wonder why this can't be said for everyday ordinary people. Maybe Jenna's tattoos help add to her sex appeal because of the way she carries herself. This is probably a mystery that will never be solved.

Below is a list of most if not all of Jenna's tattoos:

1. "Heartbreaker" on right buttock along with a two small red hearts.
