Shoulder tattoos are very popular among both men and women. They give your shoulder a new look and style. They show the smooth curves of the female back, and emphasize the relief of the inflated male muscles. The shoulder blade is a large bone of a triangular shape, which lies in the upper back. This provides a very wide and flat canvas for a complex and detailed tattoo. Tattoo on the shoulder blade can also be easily demonstrated or covered.
Tattoos on shoulder blades can be very stylish and colorful. Portraits, floral drawings, tribal, crosses, butterflies, animals, zodiac symbols, quotes and inscriptions are a very popular choice for tattoos on shoulder blades.
Tattoos that are placed in this area can vary from very small to rather large.
As with any other tattoo, a tattoo on the shoulder blade will require some pain, but not as severe as in the area of the ribs, sternum or collarbone. The shoulder is rather bony and the skin is rather thin. There can be several reasons to choose this place for tattooing. First of all, this is a very convenient place for a tattoo, due to the fact that there are no pronounced bends on the surface - this is an excellent flat canvas of a rather large area. Secondly, and maybe even firstly, a little pain when applying a tattoo, because in this part of the body there are not so many nerve endings. The third plus shoulder blades as a place for a tattoo is the ability to hide the tattoo if desired, using certain clothing styles.
