The King of All Tattoos The Full Back Tattoo

The king (or queen) of tattoos is the full back tattoo. Full back tattoos are often the final, most grand, step for a tattoo collector, after he or she has had smaller tattoos done on other parts of the body.

However, there are those who go out of the usual norm and do a full back tattoo as their first instead. Full back tattoos are usually done around the whole area of your back, from shoulder to shoulder, neck down to the waist. Finished products always come out impressive, when they are done well.

Getting a full back tattoo is a long and tedious process. This will require a whole lot of planning. The designing of the tattoo will require you to meet up with your artist at least once before proceeding on with the work.

Putting the design into ink and on to your skin is an even more lengthy process. This will start out with the outlining, then comes the shading, the coloring and the final touches. All of these will never come in a single session. It can take days before a project is completed.

If you’re thinking of getting your whole back tattooed, you’ll want to consider the following before you get started

1. Prepare for the cost. Tattoos are naturally costly, even the small ones. So get some cash ready for a full back work. But beware, never settle for the first cheap offer that you find on the streets. Consider the quality of the work as well. But it is possible to get good deals in your area. It’s just a matter of finding where these people are and availing your services from them.

2. Tattoos are painful. No pain no gain, so if you want that living work of art on your back, work for it. Get ready for the pain during the inking session.

3. Take time to think about the design. Tattoos are permanent marks on your body so make sure that you have a good design. Work together with the artist, get tips and add in your insights as well. You can have one large image done or have a complex collage of different ideas that your artist can compile into one single work of art.

4. Make sure you like and are comfortable with your tattoo artist. You’re going to be spending a lot of time with him or her and you are going to have to trust this person.

5. Allot time for healing. After the tattoo session, the pain does not stop there. So schedule out a time where you can simply rest and recuperate from the entire tattooing process.

With the right design and the right hand, a full back tattoo can become something that you can brag about to family and friends.

If you’re a tattoo lover and you are looking for a way to fully express your creativity and imagination, or maybe to express your love of life, or to pay tribute to an important element of your life, a full back tattoo could be your answer. Full back tattoos are the ultimate way for a tattoo collector to turn life into art.
