Tattoos can be inked on any part of the body, like the lower back, ankle, arms, etc. Shoulder tattoos, however, have a charm and appeal of their own...
Tattoos are a fashion statement for both men and women. Getting inked was not popular among women earlier. These tattoos are inked on shoulder blade, on the back side of the shoulder, or on the upper arm near the shoulder.
The advantage  of shoulder tattoos is that they can be concealed easily, which leaves you with no concern even at a conservative workplace. They look really attractive on a woman when she is wearing a tank top or a halter dress.

When it comes to designs for shoulder tattoos, there are plenty of options available out there. The shoulder area is flat and wide so the tattoos look much better here. Basically, there are three different categories of tattoo designs.
The naturalistic tattoo represents natural things like flowers, plants, or animals.
Second is the abstract tattoo which has some hidden meaning. However, most of the time it happens that these may not make any sense to others, and are understood only by the designer and tattoo bearer.
Butterflies, dolphins, shooting stars, tribal motifs, Celtic designs, zodiac signs, etc. are some examples of tattoo designs symbolic of one's faith or philosophy.
Think about the tattoo's placement and design. Like fairy designs look good on the front shoulder, while tribal designs look good on the back of the shoulder.
During and after the procedure, strictly follow the instructions given by tattoo artist. After completion, restrict the movements of the shoulder for a few days. Rubbing or touching the area can be painful. Even friction from clothes can cause pain initially. Before going out, apply sunscreen on the area, so that the tattoo does not get damaged.
