Sternum, or underboob, tattoos are on the rise with popularity, and we can see why. They are great if you need to keep a tattoo hidden but like to show them off during your personal time. This type of tattoo has become more popular with celebrities, which is probably why your favorite tattoo artist is doing more of them. A heed of warning though, a sternum tattoo is not for beginners and can be a pretty intense tattoo for the inexperienced.

If you’re wondering, a sternum tattoo is typically done on the ribs and sternum, also known as the underboob. The sternum is a flat, long bone that is at the center of your ribs and it helps hold your torso together. The bone is strong, so a tattoo needle won’t affect it but it can be painful. While there is no specific meaning to a sternum tattoo, the tattoo of your choice might have a special meaning to you.

Final words
There are many reasons why you might consider getting underboob tattoos. Maybe you’re a fan of the way this area of your body looks, and you want to show off your assets with some gorgeous ink. Maybe you’re looking for a way to express yourself and make a bold statement.

Perhaps you’ve seen the pictures on Instagram: a tattoo artist bent over a client, concentrating hard, as they deftly create an image that runs just under the curve of her breast. The look is hot—and it’s also not for everyone. If you’re considering getting underboob tattoos yourself, here are some things to keep in mind.

Make sure you’re okay with showing your ladybits. These tattoos are right up against your boobs, so if you’re not comfortable showing off your breasts for more than a few seconds at once, this probably isn’t the look for you.

Keep in mind your future body shape changes. Underboob tattoos can look fantastic when you’re young and fit and haven’t had children, but consider that your body will change over time (sometimes in ways unexpected), and women who have had children often find their underboob tattoos don’t look quite the same as they did before pregnancy.

Think about when and where you’ll be able to show them off. If you work in a conservative office that requires strict dress codes or other restrictions on self expression, consider whether you’ll actually be able to show off your new ink regularly enough to feel like it was worth the cost and pain involved in getting one done.
