10 Tattoo Ideas for Women’s Shoulder Area

The shoulder area is a lovely place to get a tattoo! Show off your feminine shoulders in a strapless top and put your body art on display. Women’s shoulder tattoos can be at the front by the collar bone, on the shoulder corner, or on the shoulder blade.


Shoulder to Collar Bone Tattoo



This summery, delicate tattoo looks lovely gracing over a shoulder. The curves of the feminine tattoo will curl around your collarbone beautifully.


Minimalist Dream Catcher



No colors but a lot of charm. This simple fine line tattoo over the shoulder looks like a kind of minimalist dream catcher to us. What do you think?


Butterflies Tattoo



Fluttering butterflies! The size of these butterfly tattoos is absolutely perfect for the shoulder area. Large enough to be seen, but small enough to flutter. Tattoo size is an important factor.


Fine Line Shoulder Tattoo



Cool and quirky. Get your favorite cocktail tattooed on your shoulder – or any item or icon you like, really. Small hearts, initials and stars look particularly good in this style.


Traditional Tiger Shoulder Tattoo



Using the back of the shoulder allows you more space to work in detail. This black and grey tiger tattoo is artfully created with just the right level of shading.


Science Line Tattoo



We’re loving the science theme, but you aren’t limited to it. This womens tattoo idea shows how the top of the shoulder is a brilliant placement for sentence-length tatts.


Floral Shoulder Cap Tattoos



This tattoo artist uses blackwork, but a colorful floral tattoo looks good here too. It’s also a good womens shoulder cover-up tattoo, as it’s bold and uses thick lines.


Quote Tattoo on The Shoulder



Running from the back of your neck to the tip of your shoulder, you have a neat and straight line to follow… so it’s no surprise that this is a popular placement for quote tatts.


Symbolic Womens Shoulder Tattoo



How cute is this little heart symbol? The shoulder area provides a medium-small space that’s great for circular type icons and symbols. Naval stars look cool here too.


Minimalist Astrology Tatt



A single small tattoo would look a little lost but creating a miniature galaxy with many tiny tattoos works really well. We love how delicate this modern tattoo is.
