Men's Back Tattoos

Updated on July 31, 2015

Unique Back Tattoos

A lot of men like getting back tattoos. There are lots of really neat tattoos that you can get on your back. What's nice about getting a tattoo on your back is it's an open canvas. It's the only area on the body that is completely flat and the largest area to be able to put your art on.

The two most common areas that men like to get tattoos on are the back and the arms. Whether you are looking to celebrate a happy event, memorialize someone who has passed on, or just want to get a tattoo for fun, they are all great reasons !

There are a few things that you want to take into consideration depending upon the size of your tattoo, which we'll look at further.

The Healing of a Back Tattoo

Having got a pretty good sized tattoo on my back, I have to say the healing process was much worse than getting the tattoo itself. The difference in the healing process with the back and any other tattoo I have is the fact that every movement pulls on the scab.

When you go to bed, if you roll over onto your back it will wake you up. Not to mention the everyday things that you do that will pull on your scab. Just be prepared for this. Even wearing a shirt can agitate your tattoo while it's healing.

Using A&D Ointment Verses Lotion on a New Tattoo

After you get your tattoo, make sure to have someone put on the cream you choose to use. Doing this will help the pulling not hurt so much. I used A&D Ointment for three of my tattoos and really didn't like it.

It was sticky and didn't absorb well into the skin. On my 4Th tattoo that I got, my tattoo artist recommended I use a unscented lotion instead of the typical A&D Ointment.

He said the reason for this was it absorbs into and around the tattoo rather than sitting on top of the skin. I would alternate because A&D is for healing skin abrasions and does have useful vitamins.
