Amazing Rib Tattoos for Girls

They say that getting a rib tattoo is one of the most painful parts of the body for both men and women. However, many ink lovers will beg to differ. In fact, many say that a rib tattoo on a woman is one of the sexiest tattoos she could possibly have – depending on the design, of course! Since women generally have a small canvas to work with on the ribs, finding the right design can be tough at times. Many women prefer to start with a small design so that they are better able to judge the pain threshold before locking themselves into a painful situation. Others prefer to keep it simple with writing or a collection of small tattoos running across the surface. Let’s take a look at the top list of tattoos that females prefer to have done on their ribs.

Of course, some of the most common tattoos that women get on their ribs are their favorite or most meaningful words. This can be a compilation of many things such as:

  1. Names of their parents, children, spouse, siblings, relatives or friends, in addition to their own
  2. Bible quotes and scriptures
  3. Song lyrics
  4. Famous quotes or personal quotes
  5. Important or significant dates

While these are only the most common, there are plenty of creative words that some people choose for their rib ink work, as well as different ways to display them. Using horizontal or vertical text can create a completely different look for rib tattoos that include lettering. For example, vertical lettering and Old English style font text usually helps complement longer torsos well.

Using Imagery on Rib Tattoos

Many women prefer to showcase their dainty yet daring side when it comes to the design of their rib tattoos. For the most part, we’ve encountered that celestial and floral themes are the most popular choice for rib tattoos for girls since they offer plenty of variety, can be easily customized and provide an awesome color palette to choose from! Here are some amazing designs that women have created with their tattoo artist.

Floral Patterns have always been a popular choice amongst women in full color or abstract outline. The rib cage and side offer the perfect places to showcase flowers and memorial tattoos since it is a larger surface, has natural contour and can be easily covered. These types of tattoos usually incorporate vibrant color schemes and detail to bring the 3D essence of the tattoo alive.

Tribal Imagery is a great way to showcase your artistic and feminine side. Women of all backgrounds appreciate the way tribal designs complement their individual body shape and contour. It is also quite the popular way to cover stretch marks or scars that women use to incorporate their creative side to their survival story!

Stars and Planets can be a pretty fun and vibrant way to add a bit of 3D imagery on your body art. Whether you are looking for a shooting star or a galactic scene – rib tattoos that incorporate celestial designs have elevated thousands of women to express themselves in a whole new way!

Tips to Choosing the Right Rib Tattoo for Your Body

While many women showcase their daring side when it comes to their rib tattoos, there are certain aspects to consider when choosing your design. Using vibrant colors on large pieces may require more upkeep over time. Depending on the season that you get your ink done, you should also consider the amount of sun exposure that your ribs attract after your session. The average healing time for rib tattoos, especially on females is about 4-6 weeks, which can put a damper on the summer season for some beach bums!

Many women are drawn to rib tattoos that use shading and detail, some even connecting other tattoos. In these cases you will find it common to use abstract designs, patterns and fill-in imagery like birds, feathers and zodiac related symbols. A successful rib tattoo for a female should always focus on the natural body shape over the design details, as it can ruin a tattoo completely.
