hip Near that area, but at the side of your body.

tush A synonym for 'buttocks'. This is a slang term.

buttock One of the two fleshy aress at the back, that you sit down on.

BTW, is butt just short form of buttocks Yes
or it has different usage. This is a slang term. Some people consider it vulgar, although it is used a lot. There are various similar terms. eg British people say 'bum'.

Not hip. You can say hip in front of anybody, but be careful where you say the others.

Here are images of people with their hands on their hips.
