Getting a name tattooed is an important decision and should be well thought out. Many people have tattoo names which they later regret getting.
The most common regrets are ex-girlfriends or friends / husbands or wives. But lately the trend has been for people to have their children's names or the names of departed loved ones etched in remembrance
Here are some great tips for getting names tattooed:
Tip 1: Get it somewhere relatively discrete.
The tattoos can be placed on the arms or chest, which are generally good spots. Be careful about getting the tattoos of names on your neck or hand though. These areas are almost always visible, and could be hard to cover up.If the relationship does not last and you still don't regret your name tat, you still may not want to look at it every day.
So putting it in a discreet place would be the safest choice.
Tip 2: The name tattoo designs must be taken into account.
The size of the design must be in relation to where it will be placed. You should Also take note that the font of the Name Tattoo is primary and fundamental. You will probably be shown a Tattoo flash catalog at the parlor but taking ideas from other sources, such as font libraries is also a good option.
Old English and Calligraphy texts might look artistic but the exceptional style of these two font types steals the attention from the name tattoo itself. There are a lot of tattoo galleries online where you can find large fonts for names.
Tip 3: There are those who desire to present something that is unique and a bit eccentric.
So having a name Tattoo translated into another language could also be something to consider.Chinese, Arabic, and Hebrew could be good choices of your translated name. Hieroglyphics would be a challenge, but gives greater visual impact, provided that you have to be prepared to explain the symbols.
Tip 4: Get another tattoo design that surrounds it.
While names for tattoos on the day today can be done in a stylish and creative way, just having a name inked could end up being a little boring after a while. A great way to liven up a name is to get another tattoo design surrounding the name. Or you could contain the name, for Internal Design.
Either way this makes the overall name more interesting and alive. Plus, if you do end up regretting it later, a cover up job will be made easier when there is another design it can be integrated with. If the name tattoo is within the design it could just be filled in.
Remember to always have your Names for Tattoos or any Tattoo done by a professional Tattoo Artist and take your time in selecting your perfect font, design or symbolic characters because they are meant to be meaningful and permanent.
