Posted by sophiamilller on November 18th, 2012
When you are getting a tattoo, there is nothing more important than the design. As you would be having the tattoo design almost for the rest of your life, it is important to choose something that would still be reasonable when you grow old. Most of the people would rush into a design that does not have a “timeless” value attached to it. If you want to consider removal of tattoo at some time, it can be a painful and costly affair. The following tips would help you in choosing the best tattoo design ideas that you would not have to remove in the long run.
First of all, you would want to check around for the right tattoo design ideas. You should start by searching for people who are wearing a tattoo. This would be a kind of asking for reference as you can check the quality of the artwork and ask them for an artist. You can also visit a tattoo studio and ask the artist to show some designs. Keep in mind that all tattoo artists are not same, as most of them are specialized in particular styles and patterns. While some are good at tribal designs, others are good at animal designs. Therefore, part of your search is to find the best professional who can work upon the design that you choose.
Next, you should consider the body part where you want to apply the tattoo design. The body part is going to have a major impact on the quality and the size of the tattoo. For example, if you want to place it on the shoulders, arms, forearms or calves, the ideal tattoo would have a regular size. However, legs, back and the chest are ideal for a large tattoo. Care should be taken when putting a tattoo on unusual parts such as the neck, face or head. It would be a wide decision to put your first tattoo on an area that is usually hidden under clothing and can be shown optionally.
You must thing about meaning of the tattoo design ideas that you are considering. You must spend a small amount of time contemplating why you have chosen a specific design. The eventual image you have chosen must have a very special meaning to it. In addition, you should be able to easily answer your friends and relatives when they ask about it. Most of the time, people would choose an animal, the name of a loved one or include different elements that stand for their goals or virtues.
When you choose a tattoo design, you should decide whether you would be adding more elements later on. There are many people who use small a tattoo that they gradually spread out over their body. If you think of following this approach, you must think of a specific theme so that there is a regular consistency in the elements that you keep in adding every time. In addition, you should also consider the colors that need to be used for avoiding excessively colorful patterns or styles.
