The side of the body is a great place for permanent ink designs. Tattoo artists enjoy creating beautiful designs on the elongated surface of the ribs. You often find the rib tattoo designs closely following the contours of the body. Vertical design tattoos often start at the top rib and end at the bottom one. Since the side of the body has a rounded feel, the patterns look curvy and sensuous. Rib tattoos showcase the beauty of art, and create a rich profile.
Fantasy themes with mermaids or dragons, look great in rib tattoos. Tribal designs often give a dynamic feel to the long flowy body of the dragon. You see many rib tattoos depicting different kinds of flowers. Vibrant colors brighten the floral tattoos, and give a decorative look to the side of the body. Often, elegant curvy spirals or tribal patterns frame the flowers, and give the design an ornate feel. Text tattoos are also popular on the side of the body. Vertical design text tattoos create a sense of mystery and fun. To decipher these vertical design tattoos, you actually have to crane your head. Various fonts, from ornamental Old English fonts, to flowy cursive fonts, are used to ink rib text tattoos.
