[NSFW] 40 Stunning and Absoloutely Painful-Looking Nipple Tattoos

Here's another reason why we should all be rooting for the #FreetheNipple movement.

Nipple tattoos aren’t just for those who have had mastectomy, thrill-seeking women have also been getting tattoos on their nips. We can see what got them hooked.

Those who have had them done claim that getting their nipples tattooed are one of the most excruciating things they've ever experienced. It starts with a burning sensation and may or may not intensify from there. It's definitely a step above getting the just as risqué nipple piercing.

Rather than ‘obscene’ or whatever derogating adjective people describe women whose nipples are out in the open, many of these nipple tattoos are far from that. In fact, that's the last thing on my mind when I saw these tattoos. Honestly, I think that there are far more tattoos that look more obscene than these. And that doesn't even concern placement.

Women commonly get hearts around the nipples. Now, this is the kind of tattoo we won't mind being clichés. We'd be too busy imagining how painful as f-ck getting those would have been.

Others had them match the tone of their areola and have the artist form the shape so their nipples look perfectly heart-shaped.

Some even had them so well-done that they look too painfully natural. Wonderful.

Here's one hand poke tattooist Grace Neutral had done on a client a while back. Read that again: hand poke. The scarification on the underboobs the woman added afterwards only made it look more glorious to look at.
