We’re not here to say bigger is better, but when it comes to a back piece, well, we’re here to say bigger is better. Devote that much skin-canvas to an artist and it better be damn good. Although YOU will rarely see it, back pieces are some of the most impressive tattoos around — showstoppers on the convention circuit and the hook for admiring eyes on the beach.

As you can see with that much skin the client can really tell a story and give a talented artist the chance to inject some serious detail into the work.

We reached out to friends and colleagues to gather up some stunning back pieces from around the world and you can trust us when we say there are no “tramp stamps” here.
