A tattoo on the neck is stylish and beautiful, but the image and place must be chosen carefully.
In the article, we will show you which drawing will be more successful by offering photos and sketches of neck tattoos for girls and guys.
Does it hurt to do?
The neck is considered one of the painful areas, especially on the front and in the area of the vertebrae. The skin here is thin, with nerve endings and almost no fatty layer, which dulls discomfort. There are many factors that can affect the quality of a tattoo, wound healing, and pain threshold.
How to prepare for the procedure?
- On the eve, you can not drink alcohol, medications that increase or decrease blood pressure.
- Make sure you don't have diabetes, heart or skin diseases.
- Always come to the master in a good mood and do not forget to sleep well.
If the master is experienced enough, only high-quality and new tools are available, then the sensations will be practically painless. The image on this part of the body is almost always applied in two sessions, this should be taken into account. The presence of a mole is not a problem for the master: he will skillfully beat it, choosing the most successful angle of the drawing.
Tattoos for girls on the neck
The tattoo on the neck of girls looks elegant and sexy. Neat drawings, patterns, signatures or well-made hieroglyphs give charm and femininity (we advise you to think a few times before doing the latter). The main thing is that the picture is not clumsy and too colorful, otherwise it will look ugly.
The tattoo looks good on the swan neck: thin and long, especially on the side and back. If there is not enough space for the selected composition, then you can extend it to chest, shoulder or shoulder blade.
According to statistics, girls prefer to fill flowers, musical notes, birds or butterflies that look original in a volumetric format.
Many men like the tattoo on the back of the neck, a photo of which you can view in the gallery, more than on the front. Celtic-style dark gray flowers look neat and effective, while geometric shapes represent movement. Hair should be either too short or at least shoulder-length to easily gather in a bun and open the back of the head with a graceful picture.
Each symbol has its own deep meaning and powerful energy, so it is better to write an inscription from the demanded signs, and not look for something beyond the original.
Imitations of jewelry have become popular almost on a par with records, messages, and talismanic figures. A beautiful imitation of a lace collar or necklace will match a suit or dress. Typically, the pattern starts from the front of the neck or back of the head and goes down to the chest and shoulders.
Side tattoo for girls looks attractive. A blue lotus painting is often applied, which means wisdom and serenity. Domineering girls opt for predatory animals and dragons. Moreover, recently, many people choose images in watercolors!
Intricate patterns on the sides visually lengthens the neck... Lovers of a deep neckline will suit a symmetrical image of a butterfly, skull or wings in this area. This tattoo looks pretty attractive.
Neck tattoos for men
Men are prone to drawings that symbolize stamina, strength, endurance and courage. Most often they fill pictures of animals, skulls in different variations, flames, images of Asian motives.
Men prefer to get tattoos on the back or around the neck. Often they fill in chain designs instead of real gold jewelry.
Conservative people with a calm character prefer tattoos with a deep meaning. They often choose ethnic patterns that are understandable only to the wearer, as well as crosses and faces of saints.
Polynesian tattoos are relevant, which look brutal, but effective and can be applied to any part of the neck, down to the shoulder and forearm. Their meaning is based on the life of a person and the strengths of his character. Polynesian elements are also common among the fairer sex. Especially the moon is a symbol of femininity. Snakes and lizards are also common in female images and symbolize adaptation to any life situation and give their owners longevity.
A man's tattoo on the side of the neck is stuffed more often than on the back of the head. The strong half prefers the image of animals and birds of prey. You can often find wearable drawings of mythical characters or barcodes... Anatomical tattoo variations are not relevant, as they look too defiant and aggressive. In such a picture, each capillary, artery and vein of the subcutaneous structure of the body is realistically drawn.
It is advisable to select men's tattoos on the neck carefully, be sure to consult with the master in order to clarify all the details and not miscalculate with the symbolism.
Neck Tattoo Care
The painting on the neck heals more slowly than on other parts of the body: within two months. Immediately after the end of the procedure, the master will treat the wound, apply a special ointment and put on a bandage. Will give the necessary recommendations for tattoo care:
- On the second day, remove the bandage, and rinse the wound with warm water.
- Smear tattoos on the back or side of the neck with antiseptic ointments. They quickly regenerate the skin and prevent inflammation. Remove the ointment with a specially prepared napkin (the master will give detailed instructions).
- In no case should the crust be peeled off, no matter how it itches, otherwise the contours of the tattoo will turn out to be uneven, scars will appear and an infection can be injected.
- Before bathing, the tattoo must be wrapped, it is strictly forbidden to wipe it with a towel.
- In the first three days, you should give up physical activity, alcohol and smoking, try not to twirl your neck, but turn your whole body.
- For almost two weeks you cannot swim in open water, visit saunas, stand in drafts, sunbathe, wear synthetics or woolen clothes under your throat. Dress neatly, being careful not to hurt the crust.
