Upper back tattoos are most fashionable in the sense that they look simply great. It is just not a favorite location for men, but women too wear exotic pieces on their upper back. They also have an advantage to boast their tattoos in their sexy backless dresses.
However, this list includes upper back tattoo ideas for both men and women. Angels and wings look the best on upper back than on any other location. Letterings of beautiful quotes are yet another fantastic idea for an upper back piece. Besides, if you are a creative mind then you can think of any unique custom design to suit your style and disposition.
