Tramp Stamp: The Lower Back Tattoo
The Truth About the Lower Back Tattoo
Let's examine the Tramp Stamp. Many women are getting them; many guys are drooling over them. The lower back tattoo, also known as a tramp stamp or ass antlers, is wildly popular.
Since so many people are getting the lower back tattoo, we must ask...have tramp stamps gained any class over time? Have they become acceptable for "good girls"? In a word: No. Ask any group of guys, "What do you think of a girl with a lower back tattoo versus a girl without one?" You will quickly find your answer.
Pop culture has embraced the tramp stamp. But then again, over time, pop culture also embraced the mullet, flannels over t-shirts, parachute pants, stirrup pants, leisure suits, and virtual pets. Hindsight is 20/20. The difference is that these items could all be thrown out or changed. A tramp stamp is yours until it's a gramp stamp!

What I think...
With this page, I am not trying to be judgmental towards all people with tattoos. I am talking here, just about the tramp stamp, not other well thought out, well designed, and well executed tattoos.
I am simply using the terminology that is out there, and not trying to shy away from it. If you have a lower back tattoo, then you knew these terms (or for god sakes you should have) when you got it. It was your choice after all.
I am not against tattoos. I simply feel that girls with this particular type of tattoo are sending out a message to the world, whether that is their intention or not. If that is the message they want to be sending out (for the rest of their lives) then fine...more power to them. But, if they think that this is just what everyone is doing, and that it is just something cute, then they should hold back.
Regardless of what everyone with a tramp stamp feels about it, this is how other people react when they see it. If a person can read pages like this, and still chose to get a lower back tattoo, then it is right for them.
