A rib tattoo can be one of the most painful tattoos that a person can get. Also that area of the body can be quite challenging for an artist to ink due to each person’s unique size, shape and natural curves. But, if an artist is properly found and a person has given the rib tattoo a lot of thought it can be pretty impressive. Just make sure that you keep a few things in mind. One, decide on placement. The rib cage area offers a pretty large canvas to work with allowing you ample room for larger pieces. Many people will choose to place a design on just one side of their body, but you can also choose something that covers both sides or even incorporate a back piece that works its way around to the ribs on one or both sides. Two, do not hold your breath. Remember to keep breathing no matter how much it hurts or else you could find yourself getting really lightheaded and possibly even wind up fainting. Take slow, even breaths and if you do start to feel somewhat woozy, ask your tattoo artist for a break. And that brings us to the final piece of advice for a rib tattoo. Take a break if the pain is beginning to get unbearable! Tattoo artists are used to clients needing breaks at different intervals and it’s not unusual to need one or even several breaks during a rib cage tattoo. If you take all these factors into consideration you should have no problem getting your latest bit of ink.
Rib tattoos are astonishing pieces of art and are definitely one of a kind. The rib cage is comparable to a big canvas for a body art where are ample room to work on for large pieces. With this tattoo being done on the part very close to the bone, pain would really be on the higher scale since there are lesser tissues to cushion the skin while needle is penetrating through it. If the chosen design is on the larger side, the completion usually takes more than one session since the pain can come to a point to being intolerable. But, if you think that rib tattoos are only for men then think again. Women especially love working rib tattoo art from the lower stomach all the way up to the side of the breast. Tattoo art on ribs that are normally found on women are flowers complete with leaves and stems with very vibrant and lively colors. Another popular rib tattoo motif is poems or quotes done in elegant lettering. Take the rib tattoo in the photo. It’s a quote from song lyrics. "Here lies the ghost of a love so beautiful". I must say that this rib tattoo is not only well done but also a beautiful sentiment.
