17 Cool Shoulder Tattoos To Inspire You

Tattoos, tattoos, tattoos. There are just so many options to choose from. There are countless designs from hearts to flowers to unicorns to space symbols to, you get the idea. And just when you’ve finally narrowed down what you want to get a tattoo of, it comes time to choosing a spot. You might be leaning towards a trendy area like the wrist or even the ear, but I’d also like you to consider a shoulder tattoo.

Hold it right there. Shoulder tattoos are not just for beefcakes who wear man tank tops and spend every waking moment at the gym. They’re for everyone. And there are some very pretty, girly options.

Shoulder tattoos are amazing because they look great with all different types of tops and you can play around with the placement of them. You can have one that extends down your arm or towards your collarbone. Or, you can have one on your shoulder blade. There really are no limits. It’s all up to you and your imagination. Get inspired with these 17 cool shoulder tattoo ideas.
