There are some stigmas attached to tattoos, but perhaps no placement gets as much scrutiny as anything close to or on the face. But with so many skilled tattoos artists out there these days, tattoos are truly works of art, showcasing amazing style on all parts of the body. We put together a collection of some beautiful neck tattoos that may challenge any preconceived notions that getting a tattoo in this spot isn't anything but lovely.

Simply put, neck tattoos can be so enchanting, whether it's on the back of the neck or right in the front. They look stunning when they cascade down the sides or wrap around. And we're in awe of how much of a statement they make whether they are part of a large concept tattoo or just a tiny and simple outline.

In our search to find some of the prettiest neck tattoos, we discovered that folks can never go wrong with flowers. All flowers are beautiful, but it's clear that the rose is a solid favorite -- though we also love the sprig tattoos. Going with black ink only is a classic choice and looks incredible if it's a thick line with lots of detail or something more delicate and light. Neck tattoos in color can be bold, but also subtle depending on the shading. But what we are most impressed with is how well all these women wear these tattoos -- they all feel empowering and adorned in the perfect way. Check out this collection of 50 neck tattoos and try to pick a favorite.
