The Lower Back Tattoo Design

The Lower Back Tattoo Design

Tattoos, Tattoos, Tattoos ......take a look around you and you will observe that nearly every second man and women is sporting at least one tattoo these days. It seems that members of the young generation are, in ever increasing numbers, having tattoos etched on nearly every part of their bodies. The most common areas of the body for large tattoo designs are arms (both upper and lower regions) hands, and legs. Some more adventurous are having their tattoos on chest and upper back regions and some of the more daring are even having their scalp, face and neck tattooed. Since the start of the 1990's the most popular of all places that women, both young and mature alike, are choosing to display their tattoo is on the lower back region, slightly above the hips/waist.
The lower back tattoo is quite often oblong in shape and is considered to enhance the curves and shapes of the female body. There are an untold number of reasons for this popularity, but probably the most common reason for women choosing this location for their tattoo is the fact that it is considered very attractive and sensual. In other words, a woman who displays such a tattoo believes that she becomes more attractive in the eyes of other people. Generally most women wish to be appealing to the opposite sex thus the explosion of the lower back tattoo!
The History And Origins of the Lower Back Tattoo
While the lower back tattoo has re-emerged in popularity over the last few years, it is certainly not a new design. This style of tattoo has in fact been around for hundreds of years, with its origins connected to ancient religions and spiritual rituals. In ancient times, the lower part of the back was considered the storage place of a person's spiritual energy. This is quite similar to the notion of the chi force and meridian fields that are common to eastern cultures. Additionally, the concept of lower back energy is also found in certain styles of Yoga. It is therefore not surprising that this concept shares similar traits with other eastern religions as the practice of Yoga played an influential role within many types of eastern religions.
Historically, the lower back area emerged as a popular place to show off tattoos, as it was believed the tattooing in this region of the body would assist in the release and subsequent harnessing of a person's internal energy. Regrettably much of the history supporting the lower back tattoo has been lost to all but the most knowledgeable scholars of the subject.
Many of the women wearing a lower back tattoo today are not necessarily familiar with the origins and the unique history of this type of tattoo. It is not imperative to understand the complete history, however, some knowledge of its origins may well add a unique aspect and significance to the tattoo as well as helping to explain to others why this particular style of tattoo was chosen.

Try an Old School Tattoo Design

It seems like everything old is new again in just about every part of life. Tattoo design is no different. Many of the old school tattoo designs are showing back up in ink on people everywhere.
Some of the old school tattoo designs that you see around are more like an homage to the original design, reminiscent of the first designs. But other tattoos are very faithful to the original design, exactly what you might have seen on someone leaving a tattoo shop in the 1940s.
One of the most common old school tattoo designs showing up is that of a pinup girl. The tattoo image was commonly seen in posters that were sent to soldiers and sailors during WWII. They were supposed to remind the soldiers who they were fighting for. Betty Grable was probably the most famous of the pinup girls. The posters weren’t what we would consider sexy now, but they were pretty hot back in the day. In the early to mid 1900s, most of the people who were getting tattoos were in the military, so it wasn’t a big surprise that there were a lot of tattoos of pinup girls.
One surprise that people might get about who is getting old school tattoo pinup girl designs is that more and more women are getting them. Some women are getting tattoos of themselves as a pin up girl. The women who choose to do this say that they are empowering themselves, and to take back their sexuality. Others do get the pinup girl ink just because they like the design. Of course, there are also men who get pinup girl tattoos.
There are a multitude of reasons that they get their ink. Some men get their girlfriend’s or wife’s pictures done as a pinup girl, because they love that person and want to have her with them always. Others, because they like a design.
There are many different old school tattoo designs. There are also many different reasons to get your tattoo done old school. Having an old school tattoo shows an unbroken line from the people, like Sailor Jerry, who started making tattoos the art they are now.

Feminine Tribal Tattoos

Feminine tribal tattoos are on the rise and with that increasing popularity it is becoming more common to see females branding a Hawaiian tattoo instead of other typical "pretty tattoos." Like all flower tattoos there are classical meanings behind the flowers and there are also typically designs such as tribal that these Hawaiian flowers are commonly found immortalized within. So what is the meaning behind these tattoos and why could this be the perfect feminine tribal tattoo?

Those who have decided to seek the Hawaiian flower instead of a rose or another common flower are making a great decision. It encompasses all the feminine beauty of any other flower with a unique twist. This flower tattoo is typically found in tribal form. Instead of the bright flowy colours we tend to see in flower tattoos it is usually made with big bold black lines, in a more tribal form. It can be added to beautiful other Hawaiian tribal designs such as the sea turtle, mountains and other well known Hawaiian symbols.

These flowers stand for friendship and hospitality just like the Hawaiian people. Another popular Hawaiian flower choice is the lei. These beautiful flowers are found in bright colourful presentations all over the bodies of both men and women. There are also those who have permanently inked these beautiful flowers in lei's around their necks, to symbolize the hospitality and friendship that is presented by Hawaiian natives to visitors to their island. For those who choose the exotic form of the Hawaiian flower tattoo you can ensure it is one to be proud of and to wear happily.

Girl Tattoo Gallery Review

If you are a girl looking for a cool girl tattoo, an excellent place to search is a tattoo gallery. You'll notice there are a few online galleries which may look very promising. So which one should you choose?
Girl Tattoo

Here's my girl tattoo gallery review which will give you an idea of which one to choose for beautiful designs.
Girl Tattoo

1. An Exclusive Girl Tattoo Gallery.

There are galleries online which are exclusively "girl only". That is, they cater specifically to female tattoo designs. Now while you may think that this must be the gallery for you, hold on for one moment. While, yes, you will get many girl designs, you also lose out on a lot of "gender neutral" designs which can look very beautiful as tattoos. Recently I saw a girl who just had some ink placed on. It was a tiger placed on her back, and it looked extremely sexy! Somehow it was very feminine as well. But it was the kind of ink that you likely wouldn't find in a girl tattoo only site. So if you want a smaller selection base of feminine only designs then this type of gallery might be for you. but if you want a larger selection, consider other gallery sites.

2. The Unlimited Tattoo Design Gallery.

These are galleries which have thousands of high quality designs, and are constantly being updated with new designs. While this may sound a bit overwhelming, and you start to realize that such a gallery will require a lot of time to go through, I believe in the end it really is worth it. The thing with tattoos are their permanence and the "regret factor". You definitely don't want to regret your ink, and I believe putting in your "due diligence" and going through a lot of designs to ensure you are getting the absolute best is really the way to go. Besides, it's actually fun! Once you get going on one of these sites, you really won't want to stop. It's really fun going through and bookmarking your top designs, and eventually narrowing down your decision.

Tribal Back Tattoos - Something For Everyone

Choosing to get a tattoo is one of the most important - and highly personal - decisions you will make. You will have to choose a design, a position, a color, a studio, an artist, and maybe even make more decisions than that. If you're feeling overwhelmed, don't worry, because there's one design that's sure to give you some great ideas: tribal back tattoos.

If you're a man, you know that tribal tattoos are very popular. You probably have friends who have tattooed armbands that are made up of intricate line patterns or other symbols. Even if no one you know personally has a tattoo, you've definitely seen them on television and in movies. But have you ever thought about getting a tribal tattoo on your back?

Don't think that back tattoos are just for the ladies. Many men choose to get tattoos on their back, for a variety of reasons. One of these is that your back is a large space that is relatively consistent in terms of skin. This makes it a particularly convenient place to get a tattoo, because your artist has more space to work with and a more uniform canvas. Choosing a back tattoo means you'll end up saving money.

Tribal tattoos look great on the back because they are versatile designs. For example, a tribal tatoo could be a large sun with flames - a design that would look great in the center of your back. A Celtic knot would also look good here. If you want to get a tattoo across the shoulders, you could choose a design that is more linear. Obviously, you have lots of choices.

But tribal tattoos aren't just for the boys! Lots of women are starting to choose tribal designs when they get tattoos. The versatility of this particular design is one reason for its increasing popularity. If you have a particular ethnic heritage you're proud of, you can undoubtedly find a symbol that will look great as a tattoo.

Back tattoos are especially popular with women because they are extremely sexy. Many men are already attracted to the back, and a tribal tattoo can be a great way of drawing attention to your sexy curves and alluring figure. Back tattoos are also good because you can hide them if you need to - just make sure to wear a shirt that covers it completely.

Another consideration to keep in mind when you're looking for tribal tattoo designs is cost. Both the size and position of your tattoo determine how expensive it will be. If you get a tattoo on your back, you'll probably pay less than for other places, because it is a relatively easy place for artists to access. Also, if you choose color instead of monochrome, expect to pay a little more.

Tribal back tattoos are a great tattoo design choice because they're so versatile. No matter if you're a man or a woman, if you want color or monochrome, or if you want a big or small tattoo, tribal designs are sure to give you exactly what you want.

Tribal Rose Tattoos

Are you searching for tattoo ideas? Some of the popular looked for pieces of art are Celtic, Butterfly, Dragons, Tribal, Rose/Flower, Heart, Angel and Cross tattoo designs.One of the most popular and symbolic tattoos offered is nothing but the rose tattoo.

Tribal Rose Tattoos

Many people may think of a rose as being a tattoo for women only, but that is not the case.Because a rose can either be made into a feminine or masculine design, rose tattoos are one of the most universal tattoos available.

Rose is the universal symbol of beauty.The rose denotes eagerness and liveliness and also devotions and love.In Christian cultures, roses have been used as symbols both for Jesus Christ and the Virgin Mary. French Poet Jean Richepin quoted the following lines.

this is not necessarily true with rose tattoos. In fact, the rose tattoo has an incredibly rich history and expresses a great depth of symbolism. For instance, in the 1500s rose tattoos were given to prisoners who were about to be executed.

Nowadays, the significance of a rose tattoo can be whatever the wearer chooses it to be. Often linked with romance, beauty and love, they can also represent the memory of a dead loved one or hold a profound religious association—the red of a rose symbolizing the blood of Jesus Christ.
