A back piece tattoo is a large work of collaboration between artist and client that takes time, and devotion. A back piece tattoo can take anywhere from one sitting to multiple sittings, and plenty of hours under the needle, depending on the intricacy and size of the design. Some back piece tattoos can turn into bodysuits, and others can be simple illustrative pieces like the one by Meg in this collection. It is definitely an incredible thing when a client loves an artists work so much that they'll give one of the largest swaths of skin to them to decorate.
There are so many styles to choose from, so many incredible artists, that it may seem overwhelming to choose just one artist to complete a back piece tattoo for you, but once you've found the perfect fit, it'll feel right and the design will be something you'll be happy with for the rest of your life. Like we said, a back piece is definitely a sign of devotion to one artists work...it'll take time to finish, and a lot of communication and patience, but the end product is always oh so worth it.
