Skeletal Back Tattoo

Been seeing more and more of these skeletal back tattoos lately.  This tattoo would be great with a pair of red kidneys hiding just under the 11th pair of ribs there.

  2. Oh please….while a very cool idea, this pic is fake as shit! The glasses give it away too

  3. Its photoshoped. Besides: check his glaces. He is suppose to stand in the bathroom, thats no second Guy on this picture. His actually glases are transparent while on his mirror he wears shades.


  4. lol @ the “owner” of the tattoo saying that an anatomically correct tattoo would be boring. Guess he’s never ACTUALLY looked inside a human body before, or knows anything about the true complexity of human anatomy.

  5. um, there are only 11 ribs here. there should be 12 total. missing a “floating rib” at the bottom….

  6. im sick of fucking seeing this picture every fucking where it looks stupid it looks like a fucking cartoon skeleton and it has very little detail tell the tattoist to suck a meat loaf cuz he sucks and if he sucks as much dick as he does at tattooing then i guess hes all set

  7. As the owner and co-creator of this tattoo I can say that it is definitely not “shopped”… unless I completely dreamed the 15 hours of needle time it took to get it this far. As for the glasses… yes they were shopped… Note to the Spine Doc on it not being “anatomical”… it was never designed to be an exact replica of my skeletal structure… that would have been boring

  8. Hola de parte de, encontre tu blog navegando por la red buscando tattoo design en google. Me parece super interesante la información que tienes en tu blog y sin lugar a dudas regresare a leerlo. Tengo una pregunta, si podria traducir tu blog “Skeletal Back Tattoo at Street Anatomy” y añadirlos a un de mis blogs en italiano? Y por supuesto con el link direccionando a tu blog. Estare esperando tu respuesta.

  9. How much did that cost????!!

    i was thinking of doing the same thing.. but i dont know if i want to do it because of the cost and i am for certain getting the skeletal outline of my hand done so that it permanently says “f*ck you.” i dont want to go to extremes with the outlines. that and i might want a huge mural on there.

    and that artist is really good. how many visits did you take? lol. im sure you would want to stop at the ribs after a while.

  10. Cool art,

    Not to be a parade rainer, but as a spine doc, I can tell you that the anatomy is a little fantastical and not at all how it really looks. If nerve roots really came out of the spine unprotected like that, evolution would have culled us long ago(under, not above the pedicles and protected/hidden by facet joints). But it still looks cool with great shading!
