24 Back Tattoos That Will Send Shivers Down Your Spine.

There's something about spine tattoos that are just so elegant, especially if it's the only tattoo on a person's back. Having a design go down the center of the back has a natural simplicity to it.

Be warned, however, spine tattoos are known to be very painful — in fact, one of the more painful locations to receive a tattoo on the body. Since it's an area where there's a very thin layer of skin covering the bone, the pain can be almost unbearable.

But don't let that scare you! Let these beautiful photos of peoples' spine tattoos inspire you.
