Ribcage tattoos are very interesting pieces of art; the designs are able to be big and bold. The ribcage tattoos usually run from the armpit down to the hips giving a large space to work with. Men tend to get ribcage tattoos of animals or creatures ripping through their skin while women get tattoos of flowers or peaceful scenes placed on their ribcages.
The benefit of getting a ribcage tattoo is that it is very easy to conceal and it can be a bit more intimate than other tattoos such as the arm or leg. Ribcage tattoos are becoming extremely popular with people of all ages. They are stylish and often show how bold a person is. While ribcage tattoos are beautiful and often times very intriguing, they are also one of the more painful tattoos for some.
