You make the first one, then you suddenly understand that it’s just the first step and that one is never enough! Well, it doesn’t matter if it’s your first tattoo or your tenth one — choosing a place for it can be difficult. Chest, arms, legs, back… There are so many places for tattoos, right? But here we offer the list of the best rib tattoos.

Rib is actually one of those classical-tattoo-places. Such tattoos look perfect in the majority of cases, but be careful with them —  the skin is very thin here and the bones are right under it, so this process can be painful. What we recommend is to discuss this idea with your tattoo master — he’ll tell you the details or, maybe, he’ll offer some other place instead of rib. But if you are still sure that a rib tattoo is a good idea, read this text and choose!
