    Collar tattoos: Necklaces, chains, ropes, wreaths NO SCRIPT PLEASE

    Looking for pics and ideas for collar tattoos (below the neck) that encircle the collar. I first noticed the mala bead tattoos some irezumi have in their tattoos and really liked the idea:


    I'm thinking chains, ropes, beads, wreaths, ouroboros, or even Hooper style filigree would look great
    Wondering how something like that affects a back tattoo- better to wait, get the back tattoo and bring it around from there?


    *NOTE I have nothing against script collar tattoos, I'm just looking for collar tattoos that are image based.

    I got some Tudor roses from Stuart Cripwell, then went back and had him add stems:

    Definately need to do the back 1st, at least to see where that image leaves off.
    I'm kind of partial to the Hooper idea, but my tastes gravitate away from the traditional, too . . .

    First healed photo I have seen of these. They look great. I like the look of tattoos that crawl up onto the neck, but are not full one side of the neck. I am thinking about doing the same thing, but using traditional roses or a couple of sacred hearts. I think Juan Puente would be a good choice for something like that.

    I also agree that you should tattoo your back first.

    @hogg This thread was really created to get you to post up a pic of your Cripwell roses

    I'm really digging the modified mala idea, since I'm not Buddhist, something like the Tibetan version that use the tiny skulls:

    Awesome black and gray collar design from Goethe:

    Funny I just squeezed this chain in a couple weeks ago, you can kind of see in the pic that it is coming out of slits on the top of my shoulder. I always wish I had planned my front better, but never really thought about it, just got tattooed.

    I've been thinking about getting some really heavy-duty chains for a while around the collar. I think it's a sweet way to end torso tattoos, but may look odd if you move to the neck/head.
