Neck tattoos used to show who was an outlaw and what type of gang he or she was in. Other than that, the only other people to get neck tattoos were those who ran out of room elsewhere. Neck tattoos are one of the hardest to cover up, even if you put it on the back of your neck and keep your hair over it, there is still a big risk of someone noticing. Choosing the appropriate neck tattoo should be something to think about since it cannot be covered up as easily. These tattoos are often smaller or they complement a bold back or chest tattoo. Small scripts with names or a word of encouragement can adorn the neck nicely. Neck tattoos can be found on the back, side, front or even behind one’s ear.
