If you’ve ever seen someone who has a full back tattoo, then you’ve seen a work of art.
Tattoos that cover the entire back are called full back tattoos, and they’re highly sought after. But not all tattoos that are put on the back are full back tattoos, and not all full back tattoos work.
There are a few things that you should know about back tattoos before you book your tattooing date.
First, a full back tattoo cannot be done in one sitting. It takes a number of sittings in order to get everything done. If you’re having a large back tattoo done by the same artist, you’ll likely spend a few sittings just getting the outlining done, then a few more getting the color added. Yes, the procedure can cost a lot and can take a long time, but the results are absolutely stunning, especially when you have some sort of a theme on your back.
If you like the idea of a full back tattoo, but you don’t like the idea of spending a lot of money, or time, immediately, try doing a back mural.
These back tattoos start with one or two small tattoos and then slowly grow. For example, if you wanted a garden, you might start with one or two rose tattoos, then move on later.You can opt to either have a theme going on, or you can use your back to canvas different parts of your life with your tattoos.
This is also a great way to get a full back tattoo completed. It will, however, take years before you are able to completely fill your back with tattoos. If you’re thinking about getting a back tattoo, make sure you consult with your tattoo artist so that you can figure out what the best option for your back tattoo is. And remember: you don’t have to get a full back tattoo.
Sometimes small tattoos on the back of your shoulder or neck are just as appealing as a full back tattoo.
