What does the tattoo on small of back mean? Why is it exclusively a woman’s prerogative nowadays? Why is there such a prejudiced and negative attitude to such tattoos among people? Why do men never ink tattoos in this place? We’ll discuss it in this article.
Today, tattoos on small of back, as in any other place, initially don’t have any specific meaning. Indeed, in ancient times, servants were branded in this way, and this could influence the culture of body inking. However, these days, not so many people know it, and the prejudiced attitude of some people is more of a stereotype. The reason is not the tattoo itself, but the fact that its owner shows the small of the back for demonstration purposes, which, naturally, is negatively perceived by the conservative society.
Anatomically, the female and male body is arranged in different ways. More or less developed man’s back has the form of a trapezium, expanding to the top. On the contrary, women have the small of the back slightly expanding, so the tattoo in this place looks more aesthetical.
Many girls plan to ink their first tattoo in this place. Why? The answer is simple. Adolescents want to stand out from the crowd, and the tattoo on small of back is one of the best ways to demonstrate girl’s eccentricity.
Short blouses and tops, low riser skirts and jeans — almost all styles of women’s clothing make the small of the back one of the most open parts of the body. Tattoos on back of trunk have an obvious disadvantage: it’s sometimes difficult to evaluate and admire your tattoo even with the help of a mirror, therefore, as a rule, tattoos in these places are inked just for attracting attention of others.
From an artistic point of view, the tattoo on small of back is almost an independent genre. The symmetry of the picture is the most important aspect in this case. Tattoo inscriptions on the small of the back are a rare phenomenon, but butterflies and patterns will always be on trend. A butterfly tattoo is still the most popular choice for this area.
Speaking about the painfulness of the process, the back, including its lower part, is a very sensitive area. The degree of sensation depends mainly on the individual threshold of pain, but looking at the number of photos of female tattoos with butterflies and patterns on small of back, I want to believe that ladies get through the process of inking tattoos persistently. Summing up, I would like to remind you that the meaning of any tattoo is primarily connected with what is depicted on it rather than with where it is located.
