"Tramp Stamp" is a derogatory term for lower back tattoos on women. The term originally applied to lower quality, often flash based designs (simple tribal work, butterflies, Kanji and so on) that were displayed seemingly to attract attention to partial nudity and to emphasize sexual availability, but the term can also be used to apply to all lower back tattoos that ride on the pant-line.


The term "tramp stamp" is rarely applied to men, even though many men also get lower back tattoos.
