Lower back tattoos have been commonly called the “tramp stamp tattoos” for over a decade. Whether or not it warrants the name is a controversy among tattoo enthusiasts. In any case, people know exactly what kind of tattoo and where it’s located whenever someone uses the phrase “tramp stamp.” Of course, some tramp stamps are classier than others, and can often be a beautiful, artful tattoo that happens to be on the lower back, and accentuates the female form in the best way. And then there are others who truly look like a tramp stamp, and maybe even worse than what the words conjure up in the imagination. The following are examples of cute and creative tramp stamp tattoos and awful tramp stamp tattoos.

The humorous term “coin slot” was “coined” after the low rise pant trend took off during the late nineties and early 2000’s. Using that as inspiration for a tramp stamp, still humorous, but not very attractive to look at.
Not sure what this means to the wearer, but she is certainly doing it wrong.
