Rib Cage Tattoos

Rib Cage Tattoos
Rib cage tattoos are considered to be quite private as the area is not always visible to everyone.
Some say getting a tattoo was one of the best experiences they have ever had with art. Using your body as a canvas for a tattoo is a great idea because the artist gets a large space to work with. Tattoos are quite popular with many celebrities. 'Transformers' star Megan Fox has 'Those who danced were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music' inscribed on her right rib cage.

A tattoo is permanent and its removal requires expensive cosmetic surgical procedure. It is is advisable that you think before you choose a tattoo design for your rib cage. Generally, a big and expansive design look good in this region.
