You might want to get a sexy tattoo on the back of your neck, girls, but there are things to consider when deciding on a tattoo in a highly visible and sensitive area like the back of your neck. Besides the pain of getting a tattoo so close to your spine and skull, back of the neck tattoos are either difficult or impossible to cover up depending on their location.
Tattoos on the back of the neck aren’t as popular as tattoos somewhere else on the body like the belly button, lower back, or even shoulder, but the neck tattoo has its own dedicated fan base due to its originality.
One of the sexiest areas to get a tattoo is on the back of the neck, since the nape carries a special place as one of the most seductive areas of the body that most people are unaware of. The majority of guys are attracted to the back of the neck and nape area in a way they can’t really explain and a tattoo on the lower area of the neck, behind the ear, or right under your hair line intensifies that.
Neck tattoos in general are a type of tattoo that catches a lot of bad attention from others, though tattoos on the back of the neck of girls aren’t so unacceptable in the eyes of most. On the side of the neck, or somehow the front of the neck, are seen as a bit of a taboo and not a lot of people want to commit themselves to a tattoo like that for the rest of their lives.
The choices of designs for the back of the neck are about as varied as anywhere else, as the majority of back of the neck tattoos for girls are just small versions of tattoos designed for another area of the body. However, butterflies, stars, dragonflies, and zodiac symbols are all very popular in the case of back of the neck tattoos. Zodiac symbols are even seen as a little classy when on the back of the neck, and they look beautiful.
Keep in mind that any tattoo is permanent and will be on your body for the rest of your life. Back of the neck tattoos are especially hard to cover up because of their location and if you end up working in a formal setting then putting up your hair or cutting it short is nearly impossible to do. Most workplaces do now allow visible tattoos, no matter how well done or pretty they are. What’s more is if you get a tattoo near the back of your ears there is almost no way to cover it up. Take careful consideration before committing your body to a back of the neck tattoo. They may look great, but every rose has its thorn.
