Neck tattoos are not easy to hide. This placement choice is bold and should be chosen after much thought and consideration. For some, it’s no problem, but for others, it could end up being a pain in the neck if the career path they end up following does not allow for such a visible area for ink. The neck is a very expressive area to tattoo because it is so close to the face, which is the most visible part of the body. Many styles would be great for the neck, especially floral and old school, or more abstract and stylized. Color works, and black and gray can allow for a less in your face look. If you decide to get a neck tattoo, make sure it’s something truly expresses you. After all, no matter where you decide to get inked on your body, it should always be an expression of your unique self, for you to show the world, or just to remind yourself who you are. The wonderful thing about a tattoo is that it is such personal art, and nobody else needs to understand it but you (and your tattoo artist!).
