Today's fashion trends dictate men wearing their jeans on or below their hips. With this trend, another trend on the rise due to this fashion trend is getting a hip tattoo. Previously, hip tattoos were associated with women alone, but with jeans going lower and lower sporting this type of tattoo for men is getting very fashionable. There are various designs specifically made for male hip tattoos, they could range from foreign language scripts, dragons, tribal and Celtic designs. They can be extremely painful as it's a very bony region. For men, this tattoo usually small in size, but what lacks in size makes up with design, appeal and colour.
Since hip tattoos have to be small, unless you wish to get a full length side tattoo, these designs can be sexy and charming as well. Hip tattoo designs can be anything from small black or colourful dragons, to black coloured Chinese symbol, angel wings in bluish or grey hues, small colorful flames, brass knuckles look very sexy and masculine as well.
