Lower Back Tattoos

Lower back tattoos can be stylish when done right, particularly for girls and women. In the late 1990s however, lower back tattoos have been getting so extremely popular amongst cute girly girls that they got a bad name (the tattoos).

Nearly 25% of the American population aged 18 to 50 has a tattoo, out of which almost 20% of the women have a lower back tattoo. It's almost hard to spot a teen without a tribal on her back these days. That's why the lower back tattoo is also known as a tramp stamp (amongst other names, see further).

Design Styles

Lower back tattoo designs come in a great variety of styles. Here are the most popular:

Tribal Designs: tribals are without doubt the most wanted tattoo designs for the lower back. Tribal styles lend themselves well to that location, most often creating an oblong pattern at the base of the back. Popular are the tribal sun, star and abstract tribals inspired by the tattoo styles of Borneo and Polynesia. Lower back tribal tattoos are also called tramp stamps (see further).

Lower Back Tattoos and Pregnancy

There are some rumors that lower back tattoos can be a risk for expecting mothers. The rumor is that they can prevent an epidural because there is a risk of infection caused by particles of the tattoo ink. Is this concern true?

The answers to that question vary and opinions are divided. Fact is though that there is no evidence of adverse effects as long as the tattoo is healed. Most doctors share the opinion that a tattoo is not a problem for an epidural.

If you're pregnant and have a lower back tattoo, mention it to your doctor and ask his advice. Also ask him, whether you have a tattoo or not, about the side effects of epidurals and possible health risks for you and your baby.
