Collarbone tattoos can highlight one of the most attractive parts of the human body. These tattoos, which can be placed on both men and women range from delicate and dainty to fierce and powerful. Usually designed to stretch the length of the collarbone on one side or both, they look fantastic in a singlet top.
The art of tattoos has been around for thousands of years and although the designs have evolved the permanence is still the same. It seems that over the past few years the visual art of tattoos has made its way back into the mainstream.

When thinking of the placement of a tattoo the limits run only as far as the skin in which we possess. There are many areas of the body that are tattooed far more than other locations such as the collarbone. Collarbone tattoos are seen on both males and females and the styles are endless.

The styles that seem to grace the collarbone range from full chest pieces to dainty and delicate wording. Many people choose to get a collarbone tattoo to make a statement or to share what they believe in while others use the area to make an artistic statement or accentuate the collarbone itself. Either way it is clear to see that collarbone tattoos may not be just a trend but are here to stay.

These collarbone tattoos offer more freedom in size and fonts than script tattoos. Many times tattoo artists will have many font resources for you to search through if you are unsure of what exactly you want.
The placement of these more dainty tattoos usually varies along the collarbone as well. Sometimes they are centered across the chest under the collarbone as well, but they often times vary in where they are located.

These tattoos can be placed in irregular and unsymmetrical positions.
There is no set standard on where these tattoos go as they can fit anywhere. They can be tattooed above or below the collarbone, over the collarbone and be positioned in whatever is aesthetically pleasing to you and your tattoo artist.
