Here is a very good example of how nicely side tattoos can look on a girls body. This is a very simple, but large, tattoo of roses on some long stems. And this rose tattoo really is very good looking as far as side tattoos go. Of course it does not hurt that this girl has a very nicely shaped body.

Certainly the tattoo would not look as good if her body did not look this good, but that’s a given, right?

The more I look at this tattoo the more I like it and the truth is that it really is a very simple, one color tattoo. In my humble opinion if this tattoo were well colored it would look nothing short of fantastic. It would, you can tell by just looking at it. But as all good artists know, sometimes less is more and the person that did this one certainly knows that as does the owner of the tattoo who could have made this choice solely on her own. This tattoo was done by a very talented individual and I am sure it would be interesting to see more of their work.

Getting a side tattoo can be not only a beautiful place to get ink but can also be a very painful one. Any area where there is very little flesh covering the bone can be a tricky place to get inked. And since the side tattoo covers the area from the hip bone and up the rib cage it can be especially painful or at the very least irritating. But, if you keep a few key issues in mind you should have no problem getting your side tattoo. First off, get into a comfortable position. A lot of tattoo artists will lay you down to ink your side tattoo, especially if it’s a pretty large piece so you and he will be more comfortable throughout the process.

But, the artist should put your stencil on while you’re standing up to ensure it’ll look right in your body’s normal position. Next, be prepared for a painful experience and be prepared to sit still no matter what. Any time you flinch even slightly, you take the chance that your tattoo artist will make a mistake with your design that he may or may not be able to fix. So, sitting still is absolutely a must. The final thing that you might want to consider when getting a side tattoo is finishing it in sessions. Nobody says you have to finish you’re entire rib cage tattoo in one session, especially if it’s a large or intricate piece. As long as you can make it through the all important outline, then you can quit whenever you feel you’ve had enough. If you follow these suggestions then your tattoo experience will be more pleasant.
