Tattoos covering the shoulder blade are great for women wanting to highlight their feminine sensuality. These tattoos draw attention to the contours of the neck and shoulder of the woman. Both images and words are great choices for this area. Actress Angelina Jolie has a celebrated tattoo on her left shoulder blade. It is a traditional Buddhist chant written in Khmer, the language spoken in Cambodia. Tattoos in foreign languages, by the way, are a really hot new trend that is taking the world by storm.
In the 1990s women stumbled upon the concept of the lower back tattoo and the trend stuck. It's estimated that lower back tattoos are one of the most popular tattoos for women today. The right tattoo covering the lower back and trailing outward toward the sides highlights the feminine curve of the waist. They're great to show off at the beach or anytime.
Getting a tattoo on your upper back is more of an old classic, but a fresh new original design makes all the difference. Tattooing words is a relatively new phenomenon in the tattooing world, so tattooing a word rather than an image can really mix up the old upper back tattoo. The fact that it is the broadest expanse of skin on your body means that your options with upper back tattoos is virtually endless, and any size large or small is no problem.
