How to Choose a Tattoo Design

Too many times people end up regretting the tattoo they have.
      Most of the time, this is because they didn't take the time to think about what they were getting.
 Here are some guidelines to aid you in choosing your design.
  • Consider the reasons why you want the tattoo in the first place.
  • If you want to be expressive, think about things that you enjoy or have meaning to you.
  • If your tattoo is to honour someone else, think about the things they enjoy(ed) and have meaning to them.
  • Look at other tattoos, but don't limit your imagination to what someone else already has.
  • Look for designs in stationary, books, posters, stickers, and everything else you come across.
  • If you find something similar to what you want, ask your artist to make whatever changes you want.
  • Keep in mind the image you choose will be a reflection of yourself.
  • Be creative. You don't have to draw yourself, but take your ideas to your artist.
  • Keep in mind how your tattoo may or may not affect your employment.
  • Decide whether you want your tattoo in black and grey, or full colour.
  • If you are thinking of a cover up the outcome is a lot better if you do some laser removal first to lighten the old tattoo

Take your time. This is not something to rush into.

Any design or image you find can be altered, or the colours can be changed.

Tattoo artists are exactly that - artists. If you can't draw, they can do it for you.
Your only limitation is your own imagination.
