Tattoos on the back of the neck aren't as popular as tattoos somewhere else, Why?

Tattoos on the back of the neck aren't as popular as tattoos somewhere else on the body like the belly button, lower back, or even shoulder, but the neck tattoo has its own dedicated fan base due to its originality. Tattoos no longer have the shock value they once had. A Harris Poll done in 2003 revealed that 16% of Americans had at least one tattoo. A survey done by Esquire magazine in 2002 stated that 1 in 8 Americans has a tattoo.

One advantage of a neck tattoo over hand or a foot tattoo is that they are less prone to infections.

You might want to get a sexy tattoo on the back of your neck, girls, but there are things to consider when deciding on a tattoo in a highly visible and sensitive area like the back of your neck. Besides the pain of getting a tattoo so close to your spine and skull, back of the neck tattoos are either difficult or impossible to cover up depending on their location.

Neck tattoos in general are a type of tattoo that catches a lot of bad attention from others,
though tattoos on the back of the neck of girls aren't so unacceptable in the eyes of most. The choices of designs for the back of the neck are about as varied as anywhere else, as the majority of back of the neck tattoos for girls are just small versions of tattoos designed for another area of the body. However, butterflies, stars, dragonflies, and zodiac symbols are all very popular in the case of back of the neck tattoos. Most workplaces do now allow visible tattoos, no matter how well done or pretty they are. Take careful consideration before committing your body to a back of the neck tattoo.
