Throat tattoos were the rage in the mid-2000s. Even though tattoos on the neck are common but it was during the mid-2000s when singers like Chris Brown and rappers like T.I., T-Pain, BMX, Lil Wayne, Sean Combs, and Ludacris popularized them. The trend saw a further rise in popularity when celebrities like David Beckham, Justin Bieber, and Post Malone embraced these designs.
However, after several reports of accidents, while tattooing neck went viral, people abandoned getting inked on this sensitive part. But each coin has two sides. The risky nature of throat tattoos made it a daring art form. People who wanted to show themselves as badass chose throat tattoos over any other design.
Do Throat Tattoos Hurt?
You can not even describe this pain in words.
As with all tattoos, getting a tattoo on the throat is a commitment of a lifetime. You do not want to get a tattoo on the front side of your neck just because you bet with someone. You have to withstand a lot of pain to get a throat tattoo. You might even find difficulty in breathing during or after the procedure is done.
If you want to get a throat tattoo because you like it and because you have faith in your pain tolerance power then you are in right place. Here we have chosen some of the most beautiful throat tattoo designs that will suit both men and women.
Your reason for getting a throat tattoo should be well discussed and approved by family & friends. Now that you have decided to get your front neck inked then let us tell you how meaningful (and beautiful) these designs could be.
Throat Tattoos Meanings
Throat tattoos can have several different meanings, depending on the context of the design, but some of the most common are –
Badass – Getting a tattoo on a body part that has thin skin is a badass choice in its self. The tattoo needle can go as far as your clavicle. This is a really sensitive body part and you might even cry during the process but in the end, it will be all worth it as it will prove you a true badass.
Sexy – We do not define tattoos just as ‘sexy’. As a tattoo artist, I like to explore the depth and the meaning of the design. But then again, Throat tattoos do look sexy. The designs on the throat can look as sexy as lower back tattoos on women or inner thigh tattoos.
Fearless – A Throat tattoo will be visible all the time. You will run out of all the creative ways to hide it. Showing your tattoo at work and in public to hundreds of judging eyes is a bold yes. It will show you are a person who is not afraid of the world. You make your own choices and you are proud of it.
Tips to Avoid Throat Tattoo pain
Since throat tattoos can hurt a lot so here are some tips that you should follow before your tattoo session –
Drink a lot of water as it can make your skin interact well with the ink. Eat a Balanced diet of protein and complex carbs so that your blood glucose is under control. It can help you to tolerate the pain.
Choose the design wisely. It can help you to avoid a lot of unnecessary pain. Many people go for large sizes but make your own choice. Even a small design can stand out if done perfectly.
Choose your tattoo artist wisely. Getting a tattoo on the throat is no joke. Do not put your money in the hands of an artist who has no experience in neck tattoos.
Another common tip that we often give to our clients is that they can try a side neck tattoo that runs down to the throat. You won’t get hurt much and your tattoo will look outstanding.
