How to choose the right design?
There are few ways to make it happen... The tattoo
magazines often contain full-color photos of tattoo models, tattoos
by respected and great artists, flash sets etc. Look for
designs in magazines, books, posters, stickers, and everything else
you can come across.
Another way is to visit tattoo studios in your area and look at the
designs and photo displays on the wall, and their portfolios. It's
nice to ask them for an advice about the placemen of the tattoo, the colors, but don't get limited.
Follow your imagination, after all it's about your tattoo, right?
If your tattoo is to honor someone else or to express your strong feeling to your loved ones, think about the things they enjoy the most and what message you want to pass on.
Ask for suggestions: Your friends are the best choice, instead your artist. Ask them about their experience, about their choices... You don't have to draw the image yourself, but express your true feeling to the tattoo artists and listen to their suggestions.
Decide whether you want your tattoo in black and gray, or full color. It won't make a big difference technically, but it might be different for the meaning of the tattoo.
Search on the internet: There are a lot of advices out there. Don't be quick, it's about your lifetime tattoo, not a henna tattoo....
