The lower back tattoo was popularized in the early 2000s, in part owing to the influence of female celebrities, including Britney Spears, Christina Ricci, and Pamela Anderson. The popularity of low-rise jeans and crop tops may have also spurred the increase in lower-back tattoos. Another appeal of tattooing the lower back is that there is little fat there, lessening the chance that images will become misshapen over time.

Because the lower back is often concealed, we know many have opted for this spot for their tattoo as it can be easy to hide, but if you’re looking for a long-term fix that does more than just camouflage your back tattoos, it’s time to look into back tattoo removal.
