Most lower back tattoo designs either have curls or swirls that radiate out toward the sides of your back with a central theme in the middle that makes up the main body of the tattoo. The reason for this is that it helps the tattoo blend better with your body and look more like it belongs there rather than like it was just stuck there. For instance, if you go with flowers you may want to choose a design that has stems or branches sort of radiating out toward the sides of your back with a cluster of flowers in the middle.
Latest design that is perfect for a lower back tattoo but not too many people use is a bird with its wings extended. It is more unique than flowers, butterflies and tribal tattoos, but still looks beautiful on the lower back. Any type of bird would work well for this ranging from songbirds to eagles and everything in between. Zodiac signs or the sun, moon or stars can all make great lower back tattoos. You can either use a stand-alone type design or have a tattoo artist add extra details to the edges to blend it with the shape of your back.
Lower back tattoo designs have really opened the door of opportunity for women to have large tattoos. Viewed as an asset of sensuality and a tool to enhance feminine beauty, the tapestry of the lower back will continue to be bared for the sake of art. Low cut bathing suits, low to mid-rise jeans, and other lowrider pants contribute to the image of sexiness that has been facilitated by lower back tattoos.
