Minimalist and colorful designs, right this way!

When it comes to the placement of your tattoos, you can either go for unique spots like beneath your breasts or behind your ear, or you can go for a classic area like the ribs. It's a pretty big area, so you and your tattoo artist are free to go as little or as big as you want. Another great thing about it is that you can show it off just as easily as you can hide it—perfect for people whose workplaces don't allow visible body ink!

Fair warning, though: This isn't the most forgiving area when it comes to pain level, since the skin underneath the bones is quite thin. It does, however, make for a super cool and badass tattoo! We recommend choosing a minimalist design to shorten the inking session and choosing a reputable tattoo artist to ensure that things go smoothly.

That said, let's go ahead and check out some designs for inspiration! Check out these 15 cute side rib tattoo ideas we spotted on Instagram:
