Elegant and Bold Nape Tattoos

Elegant and Bold Nape Tattoos

Inspired by Mehndi designs, lace, and jewelry, these nape tattoos can be badass and refined at the same time.

In the past, nape was one of the most important body location. Female nape were considered sensual, and male nape as a symbol of nobility. The neck is one of the most visible places of the body, especially when it comes to displaying body art, and tattoo lovers select their tattoos wisely. While neck tattoos are certainly not for amateurs, one should never get a neck tattoo unless they have a decent amount of coverage already, it can be a great place to show off some killer art. Plus, nothing is more beautiful than a tasteful tattoo on the nape of the neck. 

It is starting to become one of the hottest trends in tattoo art right now, especially in ornamental and geometric styles. Nape tattoo designs can only focus on the nape and the lower scalp, or go until the lower back, down to the spine. If you are in love with dark tattoos and intricate elegance, you should really take a look at these impressive and gorgeous nape tattoos, and maybe you'll be inspired to get your own.
