    Which Viking symbol to get tattooed on the back?

    That said, the main advantage this body part offers is its width. Back tattoos can take up part or all of the space on the back. You can make a huge Viking tattoo for men or a Viking tattoo for women that can even spill over the neck or shoulder.
