Great Tips on How to Choose the Right Tattoo for You

July 9th, 2010

Tattoos are a very popular way to express individuality and creativity now-a-days. It is also a very permanent and serious event, so you are going to want to choose something that you will like for the rest of your life. But here comes the big question.. How do you choose what tattoo to get?

To start, you should pick a tattoo that is unique to you, expresses your individuality, and has a special meaning in your life. By doing this, it will have a greater significance, and it won’t be a hasty decision that you are going to regret in the end. Pick something that you are going to be proud of for many years to come. Many people just pick a tattoo and wing it. This is NOT the way to go. It takes a lot of time and searching to find something that is the perfect image for you.

I suggest that you should look through tattoo databases such as Chopper Tattoo, Tattoo Me Now, Target Tattoos, and Infinite Tattoos. They will show you a great variety of tattoos so you can choose a good one for you. All you have to do is select one, take it to your tattoo artist, and of course, get inked.

You could also design your own tattoo, or expand on tattoos that can be found in the above databases. This gives you a chance to perfect, craft, and use your imagination to conjure up your own creation, or expand on one, and watch it evolve it into an amazing masterpiece that no one else in the world will have. This therefore, makes it unique to you. Which in the end, makes it the right tattoo for you.

Choose something that you are very passionate about. Whether it be a hobby, a loved one, a tattoo in memory of a loved one, a gift or talent that you may possess, or something that has always just caught your eye. For instance, it may be a flower you have always liked.. a tribal or celtic design.. a religious symbol.. just about anything really. There are so many things to choose from, it’s truly is quite hard to pick.

Now where should you get this fabulous tattoo? Well, I would say just about anywhere. If you work in a very professional environment, I suggest having it somewhere where it is well hidden. Many workplaces have strict guidelines against visible tattoos, and if you are looking for a job and your future employers are seeing your tattoos more than they see you, this can be a very big problem, and could result in you not getting hired for the job. So I would choose a place quite inconspicuous. Unless you are in a rock band of some sort.. Then I don’t think it really matters. But on a more serious note, I do suggest placing your tattoo somewhere tasteful.

Next, you must decide whether or not it is going to be in color, all black, or gray. Color tattoos are relatively more expensive than black or gray. Also depending on the size, and place where you are getting your tattoo, it could become a lot more costly than you would think. You should bring your tattoo design to an artist and get a quote for how much that it is going to cost so that you don’t get any unpleasant surprises when you go to pay for your tattoo. Keep in mind that certain colors fade faster than others and you will want to ask your artist about this before you get the work done.

Now you need to decide which artist is going to do your tattoo! Be sure to check out a portfolio of their works to see how skilled they are, and in what area. Some artists specialize in certain types of tattoo art, such as naturalistic/realistic tattoos(portraits, etc), abstract (tribal, celtic, etc), dedications (hearts, names, etc), cartoons, and many more. Some may do many, or all of these things. So be sure to look into your artist before getting your tattoo.

So all in all, this is how you should go about finding the right tattoo for you. Just remember to pick something that is special and unique to you by choosing a design from online databases, magazines, or by creating your own design. Find a tasteful and appropriate place to position your tattoo so that it won’t interfere with work, or applying for a job position. Choose whether you want your tattoo black, gray, or coloured, and be sure to pick colors that won’t fade. Pick a good tattoo artist that specializes in the type of tattoo that you want. And that’s it! Good luck on your tattoo experience, I hope I was of great help to you.
