The back is arguably the best location on the body for tattoos. As the largest area of the abdomen, it acts as a giant canvas that is unobstructed by major curves or jutting appendages. This area works especially well for girls, who tend to enjoy mystic, highly-detailed designs. The back can be illustrated during the first tattoo and later expanded or used to create a giant portrait in one or more sessions.
Back tattoos for girls are numerous in design. Some girls are hardcore tattoo lovers and want to get a complete back mural. Others prefer to get something small that doesn’t cover the entire back area. For the second group, small tattoos located around the shoulder blades or lower back are a popular choice, especially among women. These are usually either a single word or short phrase drawn in fancy lettering, but small designs are also prevalent.
