110 Butt Tattoo Ideas That Get a Standing Ovation

by Sherri Owens

From flowers to skeletons, there is a very wide variety of butt tattoos that you can get.

At the beginning of my tattoo career, I found butt tattoos to be quite challenging. Not only are they on a rather intimate area, but it isn't the most stable surface to tattoo on! However, I always enjoyed the clients that came in for a butt tattoo. They were always fun, quirky, and a little bit outrageous - much like their butt tattoo ideas!

In this post, I am going to introduce you to top butt tattoo designs and give you a little context for them. Let's begin!

The Best Butt Tattoo Designs

Here are the top butt tattoos that you need to check out:

Floral Butt Tattoos

It should come as little surprise to learn that flowers are a popular design for a butt tattoo. This is probably because flowers are quite feminine and, as such, they lend a beautiful and delicate touch to your butt tattoo.

The great thing about floral butt tattoos is that there are so many designs to choose from. After all, there are numerous types of flowers - roses, lilies, sunflowers, and a whole lot more.

And, each of these flowers have a meaning so if you do want a more meaningful butt tattoo, you certainly can get it.

Now, with a floral butt tattoo, you have to start out by deciding whether you want one flower, a few flowers, or an whole bouquet. To a certain degree, this will depend on how large you want your butt tattoo to be.

If you would like a single flower butt tattoo, then I would suggest a side butt tattoo. In case you would like to get a whole bouquet, you can actually get a design that will cover your entire butt cheek!

Butterfly Butt Tattoos

A butterfly tattoo is a great option if you would like to embrace your femininity. This kind of butterfly tattoo is delicate and beautiful, but also quite sexy.

You can choose to get a single butterfly or can get lots of small butterflies. Now, you are free to get this butt tattoo on any part of your cheek that you like.

However, these types of butt tattoos tend to look best on the side, right around the hip area. Of course, if your butterfly butt tattoo features other elements, then you can certainly allow the design to expand.

Insect Butt Tattoos

If you feel like butterfly butt tattoos are a bit overplayed, then you could go in a different direction - you can choose a bee or a wasp instead!

Now, these insects are a great idea if you are looking for funny tattoos. This is because bees and wasps sting and if you have that bubble butt, this can be an excellent inside joke.

Not to mention, this kind of butt tattoo works well if you have a bit of sting in you and aren't afraid of a good fight!

Snake Butt Tattoos

This is a rather unusual butt tattoo idea but I think it is a really cool one. What I like most about snake butt tattoo is that there is two sides to this kind of design.

Yes, a snake butt tattoo can seem kind of dangerous but at the same time, the winding curves of the snake are sinuous and sensual. This could be a way to say that your sexiness is both alluring as well as dangerous.

If this butt tattoo idea appeals to you, then check out these butt tattoos for inspiration:

Animal Butt Tattoos

You might not automatically think of getting an animal butt tattoo but it is definitely something that you should consider.

This is because an animal butt tattoo can be quite meaningful. Each animal has its own set of traits. So, you can choose the animal that you relate most closely. Or, if you are trying to transform yourself, you can choose an animal whose traits you would like to copy.

One of the things that I like about this kind of butt tattoo is that there are so many animals and styles to work with. If you want, you can go with a realistic animal.

Or, you can choose a traditional style for your butt tattoo. This is a great way of making your tattoo look a bit more classic and vintage.

Of course, you also have the option of choose stick and poke, blackwork styles, and so much more. It is all about going with what fits your style and personality!

And, your butt tattoo can be a great way to try out a new style as well. Since it will not be seen very often, you may find it a bit easier to take a risk!

Monkey Butt Tattoos

I have had the privilege of designing a monkey butt tattoo once and it completely cracked me up!

If you have a great sense of humor and you love to have fun, then I really can't think of a better butt tattoo idea for you than this one!

I also love that it is quite a cheeky butt tattoo too and pokes a bit of fun at your tattoo location.

Dragon Butt Tattoos

This booty body art is similar to that of the snake. Dragons have the same curves as snakes and so they make for a pretty sensuous butt tattoo.

At the same time, dragons are powerful, intelligent, and they can also fly! Due to this, they can be the perfect symbol for femininity and your sexuality.

Here are the dragon butt tattoos that you should be considering:

Heart Butt Tattoos

This is one of the top cute butt tattoo ideas on my list. There is just so much to love about these kinds of butt tattoos.

For one thing, they are super simple - many of the heart butt tattoos just consist of a red outline. So, you can get a quick and minimalistic tattoo.

At the same time, such a butt tattoo can also be quite meaningful. As your butt tattoo is in such an intimate area, it can convey self love and that's really sweet.

Fruit Butt Tattoos

Fruits have often been used as sexy synonyms - from peaches to cherries, they bring juicy and naughty images to mind.

So, if you want a sexy butt tattoo, then fruits are the perfect way to get this idea across. One of the great things about this kind of butt tattoo is that it can be pretty simple if you want. Just the outline of a fruit will work as a butt tattoo.

Sweet Things Butt Tattoos

Is the idea of fruit just a little bit too tame and healthy for you? In this case, head over to the naughty side and get a sweet things butt tattoo.

You can base this butt tattoo design on your favorite treat - lollipops, chocolate, and more!

Or you can work with a pun and get some kind of cake as a but tattoo. Cupcakes, a whole cake, or a slice of cake - there are plenty of ideas for you to choose from!

Chili Butt Tattoos

Do you want your butt tattoo to be less sweet and a little bit more spicy? Then why not get a tattoo of a chili on your butt!

As the name suggests, this kind of butt tattoo features a chili pepper on your rear end. It is up to you to decide just what kind of pepper to get - the spicier the better if you ask me!

Now, you can choose to go for a simple outline if you like or add more detail to your butt tattoo. For maximum impact, I would suggest using a little bit of color - red in particular as it will really make your butt tattoo pop.

Dice Butt Tattoos

If you are looking for a unique and cute butt tattoo, then you should consider getting a pair of dice!

The reason that I love this small butt tattoo design is because it feels really fitting for the location. See, dice represent taking a chance, usually on life. And, when you get an ass tattoo, that is exactly what you are doing.

Lips Butt Tattoos

Well, technically this kind of butt tattoo can also be described as a kiss design as this the lips are drawn as a lipstick imprint left behind when you kiss someone. However, you can also get any lips design that you want.

This is a great idea if you are on the lookout for sexy and cute tattoos - this design fits the bill perfectly.

There is a lot of things that this kind of but tattoo can say. It can be a way of telling the world that you are going to do your own thing and everyone else can kiss your ass.

Or, it can be a cheeky butt tattoo - that your rear is luscious enough to warrant kissing!

Script Butt Tattoos

Script butt tattoos have to be some of my favorite. This is because there is just so much choice here! They work well as funny tattoos - you can get some truly outrageous sayings as a butt tattoo.

At the same time, you can opt for a more sexy tattoo and get sultry saying as a butt tattoo - stay wild is a pretty popular phrase for a booty tattoo.

Of course, there are no limits with your butt tattoo! You can even get someone's name, get a meaningful phrase, or any other script that appeals to you.

Here are some of butt tattoos that can provide you with interesting tattoo ideas:

Medusa Butt Tattoos

In general, Medusa tattoos have been becoming increasingly popular in the tattoo world. It is still pretty rate as a booty tattoo, though, but I do think that this is a great spot for this kind of tattoo design.

See, according to Greek mythology, Medusa was portrayed as the villain. However, modern feminists have taken a look at Medusa's backstory and it turns out that she was the victim all along. In fact, she was punished for a man's crimes against her.

Ever since then, she has become a feminist icon. So, if you are looking for powerful and meaningful tattoo ideas, then this is definitely a butt tattoo that you should consider for yourself.

Depending on how you view Medusa's story as well as the icon herself, your butt tattoo can have different meanings for you.

Skull and Skeleton Butt Tattoos

People have been becoming increasingly creative with their butt tattoo designs. So, if you don't mind doing something different, then you can consider getting a skull or a skeleton butt tattoo!

Now, if you think that this is a morbid butt tattoo to get, think again! Skulls are not depressing - sure, they can be a symbol of the end of something. However, they also signal a new beginning.

There is also something beautiful and artistic about skulls and skeletons too. If you are into the idea of this kind of butt tattoo, then this are some designs to look at:

What Is It Like Getting a Butt Tattoo?

It is likely that you are curious about the butt tattooing process. After all, this is one of the more unusual places to get tattooed on!

The first thing that you are probably wondering about with ass tattoos is: do butt tattoos hurt?

The good news is that a booty tattoo doesn't hurt much at all. This is because it is largely fat - very little muscle and virtually no bone here. What's more, the skin is a little thicker in this area as well.

So, if you do want to get your butt tattooed as your first tattoo, this isn't such a bad idea. Of course, there are a few things to keep in mind here.

The first is the healing process - not only can a butt tattoo take longer to heal, but there is also a higher risk of infection. So, if you do have sensitive skin, have a poor immune system, or are prone to infections, then a butt tattoo may not be the right idea for you.

And, if you do go ahead and get a butt tattoo, make sure to follow the aftercare advice carefully to avoid infection. For instance, keep the area clean and avoid sitting for long periods of time.

You should also be mindful of the kinds of clothes you are wearing - steer clear of anything too tight, restrictive, or that is made from non-breathable fabric.

Before you get a tattoo on this body area, you should also think about how comfortable you are. Keep in mind that the tattooing process for a butt tattoo can be pretty intimate and not everyone may be comfortable with it. You will need to make sure that you trust your tattoo artist completely.

If you want a butt tattoo, you now know all the different ideas and designs that you can choose from. This should make it a lot easier for you to figure out which butt tattoo is right for you. Good luck choosing!
