The Chest is a great amount of space to throw in a great deal of ink. It's one of the most prominent places to wear a tattoo because it's close to the face, and it gets a lot of attention because of the extreme placement. So, if you're planning to get one, PLAN IT WELL. Because it's the closest to your heart and a space that can hold tattoos of deep meanings.

 Some people get chest tattoos to symbolize their personal love & passions, some to immortalize their loved ones, and some choose to adorn it just for the love of it. Make sure that whatever you put on your chest is nothing but THE BEST.

Takes a lot of work & endurance to get one! Make sure your body is sober & in its best condition if you're getting a chest piece tattoo. It's a tough spot. ;)

You can also go for a vest-type chest tattoo! The Yakuza get vest-type suits so they can still wear a kimono & bare some blank skin.
