Should You Get A Custom Tattoo

Determining what you are going to get tattooed on your body can be a difficult decision to make; there are literally thousands of places online and off that offer you a vast selection of tattoo designs. If you want to get a tattoo, you should think about looking at a number of different tattoo designs, tattoos that you can’t find with a search of the internet alone and are unique to you and the artist that does your ink.

Draw Your Own

When looking for different tattoo designs, the absolute best way to get something that is unique is to draw it for yourself. While drawing may not be your forte, you should still give it a shot if you have any skills. If you can draw well, then you will have the ideal drawing for your tattoo artist to make a stencil from, and if not, you have something unique to bring to the tattoo shop and your artist can use it as a starting point. No one can read your mind, if a tattoo comes right from your mind, no one can take it!

Use Books and Tattoo Libraries

Okay, so you are probably think something along the lines of, “if I get my tattoo from a book, it isn’t unique then!” I agree with you; if you take your so called different tattoo design directly from a book, then it isn’t going to be unique or different. The idea behind tattoo books is that they stimulate your mind and help you start to formulate new ideas for a tattoo. There are also a number of online library’s that are stuffed full of tattoos that you can print out and take to a parlor to get more ideas, but what if you like more than one idea online, but still want different tattoo designs to work with?

Combine Multiple Designs into One

Tattoo designs are everywhere, and if you are searching online you will likely not find the ideal one, but you may find a couple that you love, you can put them together. Some of the most successful different tattoo designs are ones that are actually a few different pieces of flash are with some personal preferences added into them.

Getting a tattoo is a huge commitment, so if you are looking for the right design, shop around you don’t have to draw your own, or even make an artist draw you a custom tattoo, just find a few that work for you and a good artist can tell you what’s possible.
