156 Collarbone Tattoo Designs That You’ll Be Daring to Bare


The collarbone is a very specific and interesting place to get a tattoo. The collarbone area provides a specific contour that can be enhanced by tattoos and they can look fantastic. It ones of those areas that can be quite painful but the pain is worth when you see the final result.

Branches of Humanity

Tattoos were apart of ancient cultures dating back to the 4th millennium BC. They have been found on defrosted ice man and even on mummies from way back when. Ancient societies all across the world have used tattoos as a representation of status and also for deep and powerful spiritual reason. It was a matter of time before they made their way over to the west and since then have flourished to what they are today. The tattoo industry is huge as more and more people feel the need to express themselves through body art.

Text looks great along the collarbone as it runs along the natural contour of the bone. It’s a cool way of getting one of your favorite quotes permanently on your body.

The Mirror Effect

Collarbone tattoos are a great place to use the mirror effect as they are on both sides separated by the sternum. The space between the tattoo leaves something to the imagination.

Back in Black

There is something about using only black that is attractive to many people who get tattoos. Just because it’s one color doesn’t mean it has to be simple or bland. As you can see in the above tattoo. It’s a quite intricate and detailed piece of what I believe may be a thistle.


Line and Color

Line and color in even balance are often used in great works of art to convey a certain meaning or message. This is collarbone tattoo is no different.
