Ribcage and Torso Tattoos.
A few back tattoos for added fun shown here, too.

Well, oddly enough this is the most popular page on my website.
I hope you enjoy the numerous examples of tattoos on the ribcage.
I always want to say thank you, again, to the men and ladies who kindly volunteered to have their photos shown on this page to assist you in deciding on placement, size, subject matter and detail for your ribcage tattoo. Whether you select, color, black and grey shaded, big or small - these examples should give you an idea of how the finished product would appear.  The ribcage is a sensitive area, but it is a good place to hid a tattoo and still have a highly attractive design. 
It is a popular area for text and scripture tattoos also.
The beautiful characters of any language make wonderful visual graphic images.

Above is a series of images, that show how I began to rework and add to a client's existing work as begun by some other artist.  I began to rework Phoenix from feathers below text in the bird, by super enhancing and adding colors.  I also "free-styled" all the black & gray imagery which composes the tail feathers from below bird, down side of ribcage, continuing to abdomen above pubic area.
I will post more images as this tattoo evolves.



Collar tattoo across clavicle and upper ribcage and spine.


I really like her choice of text.


Small hidden text, but not hidden from you my audience.


Beautiful, gentle, soft, not too detailed images, whirl - spin - float.
An athletic horse trainer and rider selects a very beautiful, free hand tree illustration,
checked it in the mirror, made several edits and then went for it - a fresh hot "Tree of Life" tattoo.
This woman decided she was ready for her tree, found the shop, and boldly designed and got tattooed in the same day.
This was just the first sitting, more will follow, once this heals.


"Don't worry, Be happy, and love the sun!


A little "Northwest" imagery for you my viewing audience.
On her way to completing her engineering degree
and having received a promising job offer
has a bright future ahead of her.


Now at first glance this is "Strength and Infinity", but for the customer this is a powerful symbol placed exactly here for protective purposes
and it is hopefully already working. 
This text in "teal" is for her. 
Ladies know what I mean.


My client deliberated a long time
as she refined her "Sketched" cross.
 After we tattooed her, she agreed to pose
in the feather mask,
to spice up the website, fun...


A student at Digipen, who healed up after a collapsed lung and surgery, decides to cover up
any scars from the experience with a way cool rabbit.  Leaping upward to new heights and adventures.
 She can succeed at anything she sets her mind to.

 
A unique tattoo of a Butterfly over Giraffe print.
The very next day - this video of a Giraffe baby chasing a butterfly - shows up.

.

Soul sisters, make a pact.
Ladies bond with a very meaningful word,
"Latong" search it out for yourselves
.

     
A bird native to the Northwest is the "Stellar Jay". 
Here is an example of one and the tattooed shadow to show dimension and flight. 
This was all done in a single sitting on a perfect client - who enjoyed every second of the session.


When the day finally arrives for your first tattoo - you are ready - and excited.
This young lady came here with her friend to get her first tattoo, and she got it on the ribs.
This has become the new location on the body for both beauty
and ease to keep covered for work.
Another example of how body art adds another dimension to the human form.


Melissa gets a large, 16 color, detailed, Peacock Feather.


Coming from a professional fishing family, that makes it's living out of the sea, my newest client and I planed out this lovely tribal seagull arrangement on her scapula. 


This a prime example of how sexy and visually
beautiful a tattoo
- positioned high
on a ribcage - can be.
This tattoo consists of a
Calla Lilly, Dragonfly,
Paisleys and more.


Fresh start, new adventures on the way.
This went as good as a session gets.
My client liked the experience.
We zoomed away.  When it comes to rib cage tattoos - she felt no pain - made my job easier.
The client loves getting tattooed and
she got a lot of ink for a "First" tattoo.
A prime example of all black ink
and shading in tones of black.


A very special Latin phrase for a ribcage tattoo. 
A good puzzle for my audience to figure out the translation.
 My client was ready and remained very still.  It was a very important tattoo for her.


Just threw a "Sheila" on the barbee,
burned her nose, and tattooed in
a Southern Cross,
seeing how she was from New Zealand and all.
Kiwi speak.


This is this young woman's first tattoo, done in a single sitting.
 I forgot the close up shot for you to see the details,
but the position shot gives you the sense of size. 
However the face, finger, hands,
feet cannot be seen too well in this shot.

Some examples ,below, of variety in applying text to the body in the form of a tattoo. 
Words of importance and significance to the individual, wearing the text, compel them to make a lovely
and bold statement in both the text and the body art.


A poem for her rib cage, it was time.
An example of a block of text for you viewing pleasure.

 
A lovely text tattoo.
A saying of Gandhi's in Chinese.
An example of a graceful curve.

 
Lovely Tattoo of the word "Serenity"
between spine and left side of the body.
It is shown here to give you an example of a "vertical" script tattoo on the torso.
Without a doubt
he bravest of my first timers. 
She sat for this in one sitting. 
I think it is striking both in the use of "script" and the "clean" strong image
of "Serenity" on the human body.

 
Beautiful text and placement make an interesting rib tattoo, fits just right to the body


In memory of her friend's passing
this young woman gets
 lyrics from Pearl Jam.

                             
                    Fly on "Free Bird".              Her next tattoo was this Taurus symbol.
These are examples of client drawn tattoos -
 (She too is an artist) - that I tattooed on the above young woman.

 
Jane's Kanji Electrons.


A young woman's torso tattoo also marks
the passing of an important  friend.
Using a delicate cursive capital letter and
important dates is a tough reminder of a dear friend's departure.



A lady gets special dates
of birth for her children and family.


A little "Northwest" imagery for you my viewing audience.
This tattoo and many others on the torso you see
throughout the website are in sensitive areas. 
These tattoos, during the tattooing process,
invoke a variety of sensations: like tickle, pain, energy, and more. 
They are powerful sensations and one uses mind
and body control throughout the experience.
This allows the client to partake in a physical,
emotional, and spiritual experience.

"Enjoy your skin while you are in it."

My ribcage tattoo clients say they were the best tattoo decisions ever! 
Much fun and good times go along with a rib cage tattoo!

If you are a sophisticated, fearless, bold, make your own path world traveler who makes the path others follow, come in and get that intimate tattoo in an area people will only see on the nude beaches of the world.  Get one on the ribs, butt cheeks, inner thigh and all the other exotic places so when you are on the nude beach you silently exclaim "adventure"
If you are the more sensuous type get one that enhances your physical features and body curves and muscles.
Enjoy your free spirit at any time in life.


One of the many I forget to post.

 
Paul Nunn gets some ink.

  
Air Force Bro.


Guys get text and art below on their ribs.

This is the beginning of the "Lord's Prayer"| on the ribcage of a client.
After the lines heal we will do the shading.


Ambigram Tattoo down the side of the client.


Last Name down his side.

 
This guy is tuff stuff : 3 sessions approximately
4 hours each, it is a custom piece designed by
his girlfriend and has hidden names and significance.


In a "Font" that looks like it was written by Dr.Jeykll and Mr. Hyde,
I tattooed a quote by Nietzsche.  Made to look like the
work of a mad man. 
But legible, ah ha.
Quotes by Friedrich Nietzsche
and other renown people


Magical Star of
Seven
 Points on the Ribs.

 
A Latin expression, in a very unusual font, cool stuff.


My man worked a 12 hour shift from
3:00p.m.to 3:00 a.m.
Then he came by at 9:00 for some Latin text, that sticks to your ribs!


The above tattoo is
a three headed cobra
and Anubis, appearing on this Shaman.


Tattoo is on a young man's rib cage.
On the top is the first session,  just line work and shadows.
On the bottom is the finished tattoo.
It needs to heal so whites can show up.
This is very personal for the collector, since his father's drawing
was used for the tattoo design.

  
Two colts, special "in memory of" tattoo.

    
Starting with a silhouette of a shark, taken by my client,
I created a custom Hammerhead Shark Tribal.

Outline of full dragon tattoo.jpg (31323 bytes)  rotation of body to see dragon.jpg (98849 bytes) Beginning of full color six hours.jpg (85782 bytes)
This guy knew what he wanted and sat for nine hours
to get inked with the whole outline in his first sitting.
Here is the rotation of his body so you can see the entire dragon.
