When you have decided that you really want a tattoo and you know of a tattoo artist you might use then the next step is choosing on a tattoo design you like. From this time on is where the hard work starts. Looking for the tattoo shop is the easy part but deciding on what tattoo you want will take work. There are so many different kinds of tattoos to choose from it makes it pretty hard to find which tattoo design will be best.
It is a lot of fun searching through many different tattoos. The look of tattoo that you decide to go with will be your own personal preference but there are many different tattoos that are common more than others. For instance, a celtic cross tattoo is much more popular with a male than a red rose tattoo that is very popular with females.
Choosing colors for a tattoo design vary and all depend on what you like. Butterfly tattoo designs don’t necessarily have to be colorful, but can also be purple or brown as there are many different meanings with colors. Styles of the tattoo designs will change also depending on the type of body art.
A skull tattoo will tend to be in larger format with bold dark colors, while a dragon tattoo design will have many pieces and dark colors. A rose tattoo can be any different colors, shape and size.
Choosing a place on your body is part of the entire process. Your tattoo can be put anywhere on your body and some people will go overboard and place a tattoo in odd places such as; the top of the head, under the neck, on fingers, feet and many other places you can think of. What is popular for women might not be as popular for men, such as women love to have tattoos placed on the lower back, upper back or on the ankle, while men tend to have tattoos placed on the upper arm, shoulder or back. It is about style and person preference that matters. You can not go wrong with placing your tattoo, it doesn’t matter where you put it.
As you can see, the choice of tattoos are endless and finding the right tattoo for you may seem like a huge task but of course there are resources that you can use to look for your tattoo.
The internet can be a great place to start your research as there are websites related to tattoos all over the place. There are many galleries and pictures that you can look through to get a better idea of what tattoos are available. Most sites will try to sell you templates of designs, which might be of good to take to your tattoo artist.
If its too hard to find a unique tattoo on the Internet, you can always go to your tattoo artist and ask for a sketch of a tattoo that you may be thinking about. Having your tattoo artist do this will cost more but may be worth it in the long run since when a tattoo is put on it will cost much more to have it removed. Be sure to spend a lot of time looking for your tattoo and search through as many different designs as possible as it will help you make a decision.
