Most of the tattoo designs you see today are one of a kind, but these unique tattoo ideas take the cake. Not only are they beautifully executed, but the placing makes them even more special. Yes, we're talking about spine tattoos.

Although pain threshold varies from person to person, the spine, housing our nervous system and being covered only by a thin layer of skin, deems to be one of the most painful places to get a tattoo done. On the other hand - spine is literally our backbone, and by adorning it, you might feel empowered to stand tall through life's hardships. The spinal tattoos that we've rounded up in a list below definitely were worth enduring the pain.

From subtle floral details to abstract strokes, these tattoo ideas might make you want to get inked even though you weren't planning to or were afraid of the possible pain. Now, there are mostly women's spine tattoos in this list, but there is also a fair share of back tattoos for guys, too.

A beautiful tattoo, but for me, a back with freckles like that needs no further embellishment.

I think there are orperation scars where the tattoed spine has missing parts. That is pretty clever and touching.
