So, you have decided to get one of those chic-looking lower back tattoos. But, did you know that they are called the "California license plates?" They are tagged with this weird name, only because they have become as common as the license plates in California. And why not, these always work magic. After all, they are cool, colorful, and trendy. Before moving on to the designs for the same, let me tell you another fact. A few years back, these were considered tramp. According to some opinions, they were only done by "bad" women. But, that's gone far behind now. Lower back tattoos are one of the coolest things to sport nowadays. Let's take a look at some popular designs for the same.
There are several of them; you can also experiment a lot with each of them, but ensure that you make a firm decision before going for one.
The beauty of such tattoos is bought out the best when they are done on the lower back. And this is the reason why they have gained so much popularity over the years. There are many designs available in this category and you can choose according to your personal liking. If you want some delicate design, you can go for a simple-shaded heart one. Ask the tattoo artist to fill the red color for the heart, and gray, black, or brown for the shade. Alternatively, you can keep the same design, but fill the heart with some images (for instance, a valley or waves). But, remember to cover only half of the heart with the image as it makes it realistic. Other designs available are: heart with angel wings, broken heart, stitched heart, or even a cupid struck heart. Tribal heart tattoos also look good and more unique than the rest.
Whichever category it might be, tribal tattoos are a must in each of them. The ones for women are not much different from those for men. There are various categories available in the same such as Polynesian, Maori, tribal dragon designs, etc. To make one easily visible, get it done in the traditional tribal black ink, in bold strokes. And to make it look different, get some design like tribal butterfly or tribal rose done. Guys surely won't go for such designs. If you don't want any girlish design, then go for tribal cross or tribal sun tattoo. The dragon one also looks more "boyish."
The next popular design is a floral design. What can look beautiful and sensuous on a woman's lower back more than a delicate vine with cherry blossoms? This is the reason why these designs are famous among women. You can let go of your imagination for floral designs, as any flower will be counted under this category. The famous floral designs are rose, Hawaiian flower tattoos, white lilies, cherry blossom, calla lily tulip, jasmine, lotus, buttercup, bluebell, daisy, hibiscus, etc. They look the best when various colors are added to them. So, to make one look innovative, taint it with many different colors. Along with flower tattoos, you can also depict vines and small fruits like cherries on it. Butterfly designs on the back are as popular as floral ones, so you can show different delicately colored butterflies on your fruit and flower clad vine. To make it different, you can also add a tribal butterfly on a floral design.
These are indeed a rage today. Celtic tattoos have some specific meanings; so, before getting one done, it is better to know what they mean. Celtic designs consist of mainly four types: spirals, loops, triangles, and knots. Whichever one it might be, it will always be interconnected. In general, they are said to symbolize the never-ending chain of love and faith. Heart tattoos are also a part of them and the most famous one is the "claddagh" (it is a crowned heart, held by two hands). Celtic designs can also work as small ones for women.
Big or small, whichever design you choose, do not forget to take care of it. Because only if you take proper care, will you be able to go shopping for your brand-new low-waist jeans, for flaunting your new lower back tattoo.
