Stomach tattoos are very popular and have been for a long time. Even in ancient cultures, stomach tattoos were used by people as a mark of tribal identification. Upon seeing it, a person could immediately distinguish who was friend and who was foe. As tattooing began to develop over the years, people began to get other parts of their bodies inked as a form of identification but stomach tattoos still retained their popularity.
Stomach tattoo designs are so popular nowadays because they can be exposed or hidden at will. It is also a design that can be used by both men and women.
And with the stomach being a fairly large canvas, people have the option of getting just about anything inked there.
Some of the more popular stomach tattoos among men include dragons, wolves, serpents and landscapes. Some of the more popular stomach tattoos among women include zodiac tattoos, flowers, stars and insects such as butterflies.
Of course, these examples for men and women are exactly that, examples. Like I said earlier, just about anything can be worked into a stomach tattoo and they give the average person a whole lot of options and space to work a design around.
