If you’re like me, you’ll love looking at tattoos on Pinterest and Instagram, and being inspired by others tattoo work.
And you will have noticed over the years that there tends to be a trend within tattoos, especially in the more mainstream community. The 90’s saw the rise of the tribal armband, and the 00s saw a lot of love for the lower back or affectionately named ‘tramp stamp’.
Recently I’ve noticed a trend in sternum or under-boob tattoos. They are cropping up on Instagram and Pinterest in all sorts of styles, from neo-traditional full colour, to intricate black and white dot work.
Now I’m not saying this is a bad thing. At least with this placement it is very easily covered and it is very complimentary to the female shape. Although that being said it is a tough spot to have tattooed and that baby bump, if you are that way inclined, is going to affect it.
Some of the popularity lies in the increased awareness of larger tattoos from Pinterest and Instagram, but of course, also from celebrities. Rhianna is known for her tattoos and her sternum tattoo will have only increased their popularity.
What do you think of sternum tattoos?
