Tattoos on the upper back range can be from simple and modest, to those that hold great significance and are quite elaborate. They can even be tattoos that stand alone or they may be the foundation for a greater idea that is yet to come. The mind of an individual getting a tattoo is unique, and the idea that generates from it is just as unique. Depending on how far the thought can go, a brilliant tattoo artist is sure to follow.
Back tattoos are a commitment, in time, money and ideas. You may have to sit with your artist for a couple of planning sessions before you even begin the journey to completion. You may also need to several sessions over the course of several months to complete your piece. A full back tattoo is a statement of who you are and who you want to be in the world.

This full back tattoo is one of the most diverse tattoos you will ever see. The left arm has a vampire on it, the right arm has crashing waves and a skull on it. Meanwhile, the full back tattoo is of a beautifully tattooed owl clutching an octopus in its claws.
This tattoo is the finest example of the Japanese Irezumi tattoo. This extensive piece of exquisite work is by Small Paul. It is a tattoo one can stare at in awe for hours, observing every minute detail and, with years of study, learning how to decipher the meanings behind each element.
This rather viscous back tattoo is the work of James Tex. James is one of the artists working today to push boundaries and blend styles such as newschool and traditional in heretofore unprecedented ways. Notice the prowess in the way he blends different elements together to create this beautiful tattoo.
This is one amazing back tattoo, the proud work of Marius Meyer.
