It has been said that women were the first ones to get rib tattoos in the past as tribal markings are often placed on visible parts of the body, most especially on the face. That being said, we think this is a good opportunity to send our love to sideboob tattoos because I'm sure we're not the only ones who think sideboobs are freaking awesome.

I know what you're thinking, “They're called rib tattoos! Stop making them complicated!” As a matter of fact, they are. But unlike rib tattoos, sideboob tattoos target a more specific body part only women can rock. We'd also like to give our support to No Bra Day and to encourage Breast Cancer Awareness, cheering on the strong, tattooed women spitting on cancer's face.

Are we going to start calling these “half sideboobs” now, though? But who cares at this point, this clean, blackwork piece looks fantastic.

Sideboob tattoos aren't the same as underboob tattoos, though. They cover only one side of the breast on the side either nearest to the boob or the side of the boob itself.
