Rib tattoos, though not that prominently visible on some occasions, can be a gorgeous tattoo design choice for the right person.

When it comes to matching tattoos with the personality you have, choosing a rib tattoo can be the perfect fit for you, especially if you are looking for a floral tattoo on your rib cage or in that area. As a piece of body art, it would be yours to view and enjoy and you do not necessarily need to display it every time you go out.

Whereas a butterfly tattoo or a dragon tattoo would look just fine on your rib cage, a rose tattoo would bring out the beauty of the art form like nothing else. For any floral tattoo, there can be different meanings and interpretations possible, and it would be a wonderful choice as well as a popular tattoo design for both women and men. It would be personal to you, and if you are looking for floral rib tattoo designs or rose tattoos, then this is the list for you!

Why would you settle for a tattoo on just your rib cage when you can have the best floral tattoo possible all over the frontal half of your body? Simple answer: you would not! Not only does this tattoo have a special meaning in terms of its use of negative space, but it also lacks the bright colours which many people tend to dislike. It is almost a fine line tattoo and contains a red rose but in monochrome. There is a lot of detail in this tattoo, and it is simply stunning to look at. Most people would take inspiration from this piece and create something a little less loud and boisterous, but as a flower tattoo, this is a really cool one to go with.

Large tattoos are very popular with most people, but it is equally enticing to have a tiny flower, almost unidentifiable, at the bottom of your sternum as well. The two symmetrically placed floral designs on the two shoulders also add an element of intrigue to the piece. It does express the hope of a better world where we do not need to say a lot in order to mean a lot, and it carries with it a lot of symbolism. Your ribs would look amazing with this particular tattoo. As a drawing, it is very simple to replicate and it would be an amazing idea to have this inked on you.

Snakes are charming animals, and when it comes to tattoos, they are a bold choice. The images which come to our mind when we imagine a snake are not very amicable, but combined with the right amount of minimalistic flower petals and a lot of dotted patterns, it creates a welcoming and intriguing atmosphere for any tattoo. On anyone’s skin, this floral rib tattoo would be nowhere short as compared to a standard butterfly tattoo or other fine line tattoos.

Your rib cage which starts right below your collarbone and goes all the way down to the diaphragm is a huge area to ink any tattoo. As far as a floral tattoo is concerned, there can be a lot of painful places where you can choose to have one, but the upper half of your rib cage is not one of them. This beautiful and colourful tattoo with a heart-shaped necklace as the centrepiece is a stunning choice for both men and women who love splashes of colour in their tattoos.

A floral tattoo that would hold special meaning for you, in your life would be one that is inspired by events of your life. This tattoo, in its effortless symmetry and placement of flowers at the most immaculate of places (the end of the collarbones and the ribcage), comes up as a popular tattoo choice in that regard. In life, nothing represents new beginnings better than flower petals with a dash of color. The meaning behind this tattoo is twofold. Firstly it represents the lively nature of the person on whom it is inked, and secondly, it indicates the passion of the person through the color scheme and the stunning artwork.

An interesting fact about the rib cage is that it is like a giant hug. It is not only at the front of the body but the sides and back as well. Therefore, instead of choosing to have flowers on the frontal rib cage, you can also have a tattoo on the side rib cage as well, just like this one. It combines the human body with flowers for the neck and head, showing how life blossoms in us. On anyone’s skin, this pattern of ink would bear a significant amount of symbolism. It is inspired from the way in which flowers bring joy to our lives.

Line tattoos are not for everyone, but if you are one of the people who do not prefer a loud or large tattoo with too many colours, but want a floral rib tattoo anyway, then this tattoo is for you. It would not take up a large part of your rib cage or your skin, and since the tattoo is minimalistic in nature, it would also not be a very painful process.

Large tattoos are difficult to pull off, especially if they cover many parts of your body. When it comes to the back of your ribcage, commonly called the vertebral column, tattoos can be painful. However, it is a one-time investment and a large flowery tattoo like this, which would spread across your arms, shoulder and lower back is a great choice for anyone who wants to tell the world that they do not care about what others think about their bold choices.

A butterfly tattoo often comes paired with a flower, because they are often found together in nature. This tattoo is no exception. With the beautiful orange butterfly sitting silently on a branch of a tree with a solitary flower on it, and another flower farther in the image, the tattoo represents the fact that we often have one opportunity in hand and another one far away, and the choice of which one to go for would always remain with us.

The top of the rib cage offers one of the broadest areas in the human body for inking any tattoo, and if one wants to go for a floral tattoo that would be horizontally expansive, then this is the area they have to choose. This colourful tattoo would not only be standing out in any outfit, but it can also serve as a great conversation starter. There are many possible meanings for this tattoo, and one of the most popular ones is that in life, we would be given different flowers, and how we manage to balance them on a single branch would determine the amount of success we see in our lives.

The list of recommendations does not stop here at all. There are a whole lot of other possibilities when it comes to a floral rib tattoo. Some of these are listed below:

  • A dragon tattoo with petals on the borders of it.
  • A floral mandala tattoo on the ribs
  • A line tattoo with petals all around it, connecting the frontal rib cage to the vertebral column.
  • A Rose tattoo at the centre of the sternum.
  • A sunflower tattoo where the flower begins at the bottom of the rib cage.
