What Is An Underboob Tattoo?
An underboob tattoo generally refers to tatts inked on the chest area of women, right underneath the breasts. The side boob tattoo, found on the rib next to the breasts, can also fall under this category.
The sternum (the area between the breasts) is also often included in popular underboob tattoo designs. This is why you might see underboob tattoos referred to as sternum tattoos from time to time.
Celebrities That Have Underboob Tattoos
If you need more proof of how cool these tatts can be, here are a few celebrities that rock the hell out of their under breast tattoos.
Bad gal RiRi definitely comes to mind when you think of gorgeous and ornate chest ink. Hers portrays the goddess Isis and was created in tribute to her grandmother, Dolly.

Top 5 Underboob Designs
Tattoos are a lifelong commitment. Go as avant-garde or straightforward as you want, as long as you're ready to live with it. And while there are no hard and fast rules about underboob tattoo designs, here are some things you could consider when getting an underboob tattoo.
- Space: The underboob area is quite spacey, and it might be tempting to fill that space up. Exercise restraint and go with a design that is proportional to your body. Many people favour triangular designs that go from under the breast up to the dip on the solar plexus.
- The Pain: Getting inked in this area hurts a lot more compared to a tatt on your arm or leg. And depending on the complexity of the design, return trips might be necessary.
- Cost: Getting an underboob tattoo doesn't necessarily chain you to a specific price. Like any tattoo, the price you pay depends on the size of the design. If you have an intricate piece, then expect the tattoo artist to charge by the hour. Average prices for a medium tattoo in Australia is around $AUD 700.00

Yet another nature-inspired tattoo theme. Don't mind the people who say that flower tattoos are “so cliché”. Floral designs just look too damn good, especially as an underboob tatt or a side boob tatt, and even-more-especially when it peeks out from your sports bra or crop top!
There's a lot of space to cover on your underboob area, and what shows balance better than a pair of wings? Insect wings, angel wings, bat wings, you name it – any winged design seem to perch beautifully on your undercleavage.
Mandalas are probably the most common underboob tattoos and for a good reason. Aside from it being so calming to look at, the mandala’s round and intricate design make it the perfect centrepiece. It covers a good amount of space and it sits perfectly on your solar plexus.
Tattoos are primarily a form of self-expression, and if having a side boob or underboob tattoo helps you express who you really are, then go for it! And who knows? Getting an underboob tattoo might just be one of the breast decisions you’ll ever make!
