I don’t know about the rest of the world but here in West Los Angeles there is an abundance of tattoo parlors and related facilities. In this area it’s not uncommon to see tattoos of all sorts of colors, shapes and sizes, on people from all different age groups and backgrounds.

Below is a photograph of some sort of artistic tattoo appearing on a young womans spine, in the area of her sacrum, iliac crests, and lower lumbar vertebrae. That L4, L5 and S1 for those of you that want to be technical.

I don’t know what this is a tattoo of but we’re going to begin collecting photos of tattoos that appear on people’s backs and put together a spine focused tattoo page.

Here is another view of the same tattoo but I can’t make out what it is. It’s a nice design that uses a single color. I can say that the table she is lying on is a Lloyd 402 chiropractic drop table (any chiropractor can see that).

I’ll likely be posting all of photos of tattoos I receive to the photo category on this blog.
