Chest tattoos are often a favorite piece for a tattoo artistic to do because of the expansive amount of space in which to work with. Chest tattoos are also called chest pieces and they shouldn’t be confused with womens tattoos placed on the breast. Those tattoos are usually smaller than the chest tattoo which is a large piece designed to cover the entire area of the chest. The chest tattoo in the picture is a perfect example of a traditional patriotic piece combined with other fascinating elements. It contains the American flag and the bald eagle which are both symbols of freedom. There is also the nautical design of a clipper ship which is very common among sailors and fishermen. Around the border of the design is a laurel wreath which indicates a strong desire for peace. That is a common element in European designs. The whole tattoo is finished off with a huge cherry blossom which holds the laurel wreath in place. The cherry blossom is common in Japanese tattoos and is a reminder of the fleeting nature of life. As you can see, chest pieces can be crafted of several different elements which allows the bearer to make more of a statement then what is usually possible with a smaller piece.
This chest tattoo is a perfect example of what can be accomplished with a little forethought, planning and imagination. See, the chest is the perfect location for a tattoo, as the space available is so vast. But, some considerations need to be kept in mind. First and foremost, is the sensitivity of the area. While some parts of the chest can easily inked without any discomfort to the person receiving the tattoo, there are other parts that are quite sensitive. Two, chest tattoos can become large pieces of work rather quickly and may take several sessions to complete. In fact, some designs may take months or years to complete, so plan accordingly. Another thing to consider is the shape of the area itself. Every chest tattoo is different and needs to fit naturally with contours of the individuals body. But, if all these things are taken into account and the design is properly executed by a professional, then the chest tattoo can be an impressive work of art. Just look at the design in the picture. The creature clawing it’s way out of the chest area of the bearer is a very striking design and one that was most likely a very daunting undertaking.
