Back then if a woman got a tattoo it was usually on the ankle, near the belly button, or on her wrist. The options for today's woman are more open than they were twenty years ago. Women are now getting tattoos in places they would have never dreamed of before, like on the back of their neck, lower back, or even their shoulders.
Shoulder tattoos are getting more and more popular with today's women. There are a wide variety of sexy tattoo designs for women to get on that especially beautiful part of the body these days, and shoulder tattoos are very diverse. A shoulder tattoo can be in different areas of the shoulder and there are a wide variety of shoulder tattoo designs that can work for any woman.
There are two areas on the shoulder a tattoo can be and still be classified as a shoulder tattoo: on the back of the shoulder on or near the shoulder blade, and on the upper arm part of the shoulder. Getting a tattoo on either part of the shoulder looks good, and they are both easily hidden in instances where having a tattoo is not appropriate.
Men have traditionally had more aggressive tattoo designs on the shoulder area. Skulls, tigers, and drags are popular tattoo designs for men's shoulders and upper arms. However, women's shoulder tattoo designs are much less aggressive and more feminine and sexy. Shooting stars, dolphins, tribal designs, and zodiac symbols are all very popular tattoo designs for a woman's shoulder. They all project a different image, depending on the woman. For example, a Dolphin design give a sense of playfulness and beauty, while a woman with her zodiac on display shows that she is proud of who she is. Choosing which shoulder tattoo design is right yields a lot of choices.
Getting a shoulder tattoo is a little more bold than having one on the ankle or somewhere else. A shoulder tattoo, even if it's very cute, shows that the woman with it has confidence in herself. With men it's all about looking macho, but a woman having one is empowering and shows that she is not afraid to be herself, even if it's a little out of the norm. Even when the shoulder tattoo is covered up, whether for work or a social gathering, it is still on her body and the confidence having a shoulder tattoo is still reflected in how she acts. When the shoulder tattoo design is on display, it looks beautiful. The shoulder looks beautiful on its own, but a beautiful and well-placed ink can make it look that much better.
