The 17 Best Chest Tattoos for Men

Arms tend to get the most attention when it comes to tattoos, but don’t sleep on your chest. There is something badass about a chest tattoo. Maybe it’s because the area lends itself to a potentially more painful (and sometimes longer) session, or maybe it’s because badasses like Connor McGregor, Colin Kaepernick, and Lewis Hamilton have all helped popularize the placement in recent years.

Like all tattoos, chest tattoos come in all styles and sizes—what you get is up to you and the artist you work with. But before you decide on a chest tattoo design, keep in mind that the chest is a large surface area that lends itself well to sprawling horizontal designs. If you don’t want to cover your whole chest, that’s cool, too—focus on one side and you still get a pretty good amount of surface area. Be prepared that tattooing the center of your chest over your sternum is painful (take it from me), so if you’re not ready for that, keep it to the meatier parts of your chest closer to your shoulders. And if you think chest tattoos are dope, but not sure where to even start thinking of one for yourself, this list may help narrow it down.
