Spine Tattoos are a good way to show off your tattoo without your back being too busy. A spine tattoo features an overall simplistic and elegant space which is confined to the spine. You really have to be creative by having such a long, restrictive and narrow space to work with. Both women and men get spine tattoos but are more popular among women. Men tend to get back tattoos over tattoos on their spine. Popular spine tattoos are script, san-script, spine bone structure, floral imagery, butterflies, worlds and new moon transitions.

San-script spine tattoos can be a fine narrow font or bold and wide. As the length of the spine will make your tattoo look long and slender.
