25 Accomplished Ditch Tattoos

21inkedd in Tattoo Ideas

By far one of the hardest and most painful areas to get tattooed is the ditch.

The ditch refers to either the inner elbow or inner knee, essentially where there's a ditch/dip. A very sensitive area to get tattooed the ditch is definitely a battle to get inked, but when done it looks unbelievably badass and awesome!! Sitting for a ditch tattoo is a tough thing, but tattooing one is easily as tough, lets be honest it's a rather awkward place to work with! Likewise choosing a design is not straight forward, you have to choose something that can fit the ditch perfectly and that moves with the bending of the elbow or knee.

Some people love ditch tattoos and others hate them, but regardless of your opinion ditch tattoos make a killer tattoo! Whether you're filling the ditch as part of a traditional tattoo sleeve or your simply getting a stand alone ditch tattoo then these 25 accomplished ditch tattoos will give you some great inspiration!! ...and perhaps make you cringe a little with the thought of a needle in your own ditch!!
