Side tattoos can be very impressive. It's a large part of the body which is great for a complex design. This includes the side of the torso, the side of the ribcage and can also include the hip. It's also easy to conceal if needed with clothing. Large, epic designs are perfect for the side in any theme, old school, new school, floral, tribal, photorealistic, biomechanical, fantasy, any thing you'd like! The side can be very sensitive because of the ribcage and the hip bone and the thin skin that covers them. If your pain tolerance is not high, you may want to choose a different part of the body for a tattoo.
