Lower waist tattoos are very popular among women, although some men get them as well. Many women get lower waist back tattoos, but lower waist stomach tattoos are also gaining popularity as of 2014.
Tattoos on the lower waist can be very painful compared to tattoos on other areas of the body. Losing or gaining more than a few pounds can cause the tattoo to look stretched out or overlapped. Stretch marks can even cause a lower waist tattoo to look like it has been cut in half. Many men and women want to get in shape before getting a tattoo on their stomach or back area to avoid skewing the tattoo from weight gain or loss.
