Getting a tattoo on the neck requires a lot of thought. The neck or throat is a great place to get inked because the potential for a cool looking tattoo is high, but it is also one of the most noticeable places to get a tattoo. This means that if you are considering getting your neck tattooed, you should think carefully about the subject you intend to get illustrated. The last thing you want is to where scarves or turtlenecks permanently.
Neck tattoos are compelling because the neck is not a traditional area for tattoos. Most tattoos drawn in this area tend to be small or cute, due to the limited availability of space. On the other hand, the tattoo could be part of a larger illustration on the chest or back. A blooming rose on the side of the neck could stem from a tattooed tree on the abdomen.
