Underboob Tattoos are most commonly found on women. The Underboob tattoo can symbolize strength and autonomy, It’s no wonder this is the case!
This kind of tattoo exudes that sultry feminine essence… you go, girl! Once again, we find ourselves with a tattoo that can be done in many different tattooing styles, which we love.
Let’s look at the best ones I have found to date!
1. Blackwork Scarab Beetle
This tattoo has a special place in my heart; my love for Egyptian history dates back to when I was a child. I have tons of Egyptian-style tattoos on my body. The scarab beetle represents the eternal cycle of life; it means, chill out, dude… we have a lifetime ahead of us! The lines are solid and clean, which is admirable from an artistic perspective.
2. Snake Underboob Tattoo
The style and placement of this snake tattoo is perfect. The design acts as a leading line, drawing your eye right up to the moon shape above the head of the snake.
3. Asymmetrical leaf tattoo
The positioning of this tattoo is what stood out to me the most. Usually, underboob tattoos have a symmetrical design, but this is a great example of the opposite.
4. Blackwork Moth Tattoo
I love the dark element that comes with this tattoo. The moth can be a symbol of metamorphosis; a dark night of the soul. I think that is the perfect combo of blackwork and symbolic meaning.
5. Ornamental Dotwork Tattoo
The dot work tattoo technique is intriguing; instead of using solid lines, the artist creates the illusion of them through tons of tiny little dots varying in shade. The closer the dots are together, the darker the hue; the farther away the dots, the lighter the hue. This tattoo is striking and a beauty to feast our eyes upon!
6. Blackwork Peacock Feather Tattoo
This tattoo caught my eye almost immediately. I love the entire design, idea, and placement of this piece. The peacock feathers give the illusion of eyes staring back at you; I love that attention to detail. The satiating black provides this piece with depth and life!
7. Egyptian Goddess Isis Tattoo
I was not lying when I said I had a love for Egyptian history! The revered goddess Isis symbolizes fertility, love, magic, and healing. She is a popular choice among women! I have an identical tattoo to this one on my inner arm. The thin, minimalistic line-work has been done professionally; nothing better than crisp lines.
8. Black Neo-Traditional Bat Tattoo
This cute little critter, I’m sure, has already stolen your heart, just like it has done mine! The bold, thick, clean lines make this tattoo a winner. The bat symbolizes death and letting go of old habits and patterns that no longer serve you. The little fangs on the bat are my favorite feat of this tattoo; it gives the bat that carries quite a heavy symbolic meaning a sense of childishness.
9. Fine Line Ornamental Tattoo
The delicacy and intricacy of the piece bring it all together. The symmetry is what catches the eye! I love how feminine and gentle it appears on the skin. I appreciate the placement of the tattoo as well as the crisp linework.
10. Black And Grey Tattoo in The Water
The eyes on this lady make her stand out from the rest; her eyes almost pierce your soul. I love the overall design of this tattoo, and I think the flower blossoming on top of her head gives a more inviting, warm feeling. The grey washes and use of black tone down her face and softens her look.
11. Lotus Flower Tattoo
The Lotus Flower stems from Buddhist spirituality and symbolizes purity and spiritual awakening. It is known that lotus flowers can only bloom in dark, murky water, meaning through hardships, we can only grow and become stronger within ourselves. The linework in this tattoo is my favorite part; clean and crispy!
12. Ornamental Snake Tattoo
I have a snake tattoo on myself because they are just so badass! Snakes represent fertility, creative life force, and, most notoriously, Kundalini Energy, which comes from Hindu Spirituality. I love the illustrative style combined with the ornamental pieces wedged in between.
13. Traditional Crocodile Tattoo
Well, if it isn’t my favorite style of tattoo! This might be my favorite on this list. The whip shading and bold lines are a winner. Crocodiles symbolise protection and can have a deep meaning for the person who decides to get this done on their body.
14. Dot Shading Praying Mantis tattoo
This tattoo is an absolute beast. The dot shading pulled its weight in giving the mantis that realistic look. My favorite part of this tattoo is the size; it is mesmerizing to look at. The praying mantis symbolises tranquility ad inner peace, which is something I also seek personally.
15. Dagger and Snake Tattoo
I love the dark pigmented black ink used here; it makes the tattoo bold and striking. The bedazzled dagger compliments the beautifully decorated snake. The use of white ink is my favorite part of this tattoo; it makes the darkness stand out and adds a shine to the dagger’s jewels.
16. Hand Poked Red Ink Mandala Tattoo
Hand Poked tattoos can be traced back to ancient Egyptian times! Mandalas are circular figures that represent the universe in both Hindu and Buddhist spirituality. What I like most about this tattoo is the gentle nature of the hand poke technique and how it gives that beautiful soft appearance.
17. Chained Heart Tattoo
My interpretation of this tattoo would be protecting the heart and vulnerability. The dot work shading technique has been used here, and boy… it is clean! The tattoo has been placed precisely and sits directly in the center, showing the artist’s outstanding ability.
18. Yin-Yang Black Work Koi Fish Tattoo
Yin and Yang come from ancient chines philosophy, where opposite forces are seen as interconnected and counterbalancing. Koi fish represent perseverance in the face of adversity. The tattoo was done professionally; the beautiful fine lines are clean, and the shading is soft. This tattoo is for sure a winner in my books.
The imagery of two fish swimming in different directions is also the symbolism of the Pisces zodiac sign. Check out our Pisces tattoo article here.
19. Realistic Colour Floral Tattoo
I wanted color on this list; here is the perfect candidate! I almost want to reach out and pick the flowers and put them in a vase. The beautiful rich colors are what stand out most to be about this tattoo. The colors are not highly saturated, which makes it appear soft. I like it!
20. Dotted Geometric Bee Tattoo
The technique used here is dot work shading; it can make a tattoo appear very fine and intricate, which we can see here in this piece. I love honey, and I eat it with my oats every morning… now I’m hungry!
21. Fine Line Floral Tattoo
This little beauty is a knockout. This kind of tattoo makes for the perfect first tattoo, you can hide it well, and it’s done in a fine-line technique that can escape the gaze of onlookers!
Here’s a great example of how a plant design can use the lines of the body to make it feel super natural.
