Some people like to hide their body art, but there are just as many that prefer to share their tattoos with the world. For folks that want a way to display their ink—but don’t want the commitment of a full sleeve—collar bone tattoos are a great solution. They often line the clavicle bone and stick above many articles of clothing. This makes them visible, no matter how dainty the designs may be.
Flowers, in general, are one of the most popular tattoo design ideas. The same is true for ink across the collar bone. But despite their ubiquitousness, tattooists have put their own spin on the subject with the color and style of the blooms. Many artists opt for lush, vibrant bouquets that drape around the neck like floral leis. Other tattooists go in the opposite direction and draw with razor-thin lines and a minimal palette to create designs that are both striking yet subtle.
Blooms, of course, aren’t the only choice you have for collar bone tattoo ideas. The galaxy, cursive writing, and the ocean are just a few subjects that people have inked on their bodies. For more inspiration for your next clavicle tattoo, check out our favorites below.
