Full side/rib tattoos are among some of the most painful to have done, but they’re also one of the most flattering design choices a tattoo enthusiast can get. Not only do full side/rib tattoos utilize one of the largest canvases the human body has to offer, they also flow along the subject’s natural curvature, which is why many people who put in a lot of work to sculpt and cultivate their figure choose to get full side/rib tattoos.
As you can see in the gallery featured below, full side/rib tattoos appeal to men and women equally. However, women do tend to get full side/rib tattoos more often than men because of the way these beautiful full body designs tend to accentuate their figure. Men who get full side/rib tattoos generally tend to go on to get the rest of their body covered in tattoos, while women are more likely to be satisfied with simply getting the side/rib tattoo alone.
What’s truly great about these designs is the level of artistry that goes into them. You’ll be hard-pressed to find a full side/rib tattoo that does involve multiple pieces of imagery or a high level of detail akin to a masterpiece painting you’d normally hang on a wall or see in a museum. These tattoos take a lot of time and effort to complete and always speak highly of the artist who drew and applied them.
Because of the real estate they take up and the time they take to apply, full side/rib tattoos often cost a fortune, but there aren’t many people who regret getting them when it’s all said and done. Maybe the pictures in the gallery below will help spark the inspiration you need to get a full side/rib tattoo design of your own in the near future. Even if it doesn’t it’s still a great gallery to see for yourself.
