Rib Cage Tattoos – Review and Tips

Rib Cages are one of the largest areas for tattoos. This area is also an ideal place to get huge design ideas inked and usually takes multiple appointments with your favorite artist. It is a great place for a person who does not want it to be seen at work. Or who wants more details or multiple tattoo designs combined into one.

The rib cage is a big area so choice of design is important too. Since it takes more than one sitting to complete, it gives you a chance to change your mind or not finish the tattoo. You must be committed to have it finished. You should look into your past and future to find a rib cage tattoo design that represents who you are so you can be proud of it for the rest of your life.

The rib area has very little natural padding in the form of tissues or fat. This fact makes it one of the most painful places to get a tattoo inked. The size of this area means that the pain will have to be endured for a longer period of time. People who see your tattoo in this location will know about the pain and commitment involved with that choice.

It is important to find a highly qualified tattoo artist for work in the rib cage area. He has to have done some in this location before. You do not want to be his or her first one. They should have pictures that you can see. I would watch them work for a bit to see how they work. They have to be consistent for a few sitting so his work can not be good one day and not the next. If you don’t think they are good enough then check out another. Do not be in a hurry to have your rib cage tattoo.

I have a lot of respect for people who choose to get a rib cage tattoo inked. I do not know if I could take the time and pain of getting a tattoo in that area. The price can be painful as well. The large size of that tattoo area demands a high price tag. People who get one usually do not care about the price, time or pain they just want their ideas to come alive as a tattoo on their ribs.

I am thinking of getting one done if I can find the time and money. Rib cages are one of my favorite areas for a tattoo. I have a few designs picked out already but I am in no big hurry. One day soon I may be the proud owner of an awesome well thought out design on my favorite area for tattoos.
