After you decide that you are going to get as a tattoo, the next step is deciding what type of tattoo design. There are several variations of tattoo design and tattoo artists are able to customize your idea into a unique tattoo piece of artwork. When selecting the type of tattoo design and artwork there are some important factors to consider other than the design: size, color, placement of the tattoo design. These are all important considerations when getting a tattoo as a tattoo is a permanent piece of artwork which reflects your individual style and personality.
The tattoo design can be anything that you desire. It is good to have an idea of what type of tattoo design you want to get. Researching various types of tattoo designs can often get your mind flowing with ideas about what type of tattoo design you want. Tattoo artists are unique and talented body artists in the way they are able to create tattoo designs from photographs, paintings, and drawings.
Once you have decided on a tattoo artist, the best thing to do is to bring your tattoo design ideas in and discuss it with your tattoo artist. Your tattoo artist will be able to sketch tattoo designs and discuss your tattoo with you so that you get the tattoo design you want.
The size of your tattoo can vary from something small (like a letter tattoo) to something large (such as an intricate tattoo design with lots of artwork). When getting a tattoo, the intricacy of the detail you want has to be taken into consideration with the tattoo design.
Trying to fit a tattoo design with many details into a small area will be quite difficult. A large tattoo design may cover a large section of your body and may take a few sittings at the tattoo studio to be completed. Large tattoos allow the individual to have a tattoo design which may cover an entire part of the body with many details. Whichever tattoo design you pick, the level of detail you wish to be show in the tattoo artwork will be affected by the size of your tattoo.
The colors of your tattoo can be anything you choose. It is common to find tribal tattoos, symbolic tattoos, and word tattoos in a solid color, often black. However, the color you choose in your tattoo design may hold a symbolic meaning as well, perhaps a favorite color or a sentimental color choice.
Tattoo artists can also use a shading effect to give your tattoo design a feel of different colors. Shading can be done with black and colored tattoos. There are endless options for the color of your tattoo design.
The placement of your tattoo has to be considered. When deciding where to place your tattoo, you must remember that a tattoo is permanent. Consider if you would like your tattoo design to be visible by others all the time or if you want to be able to cover your tattoo with clothing when you don’t want your tattoo seen. Another consideration with tattoo placement is surrounding moles and freckles. It is generally not advisable to tattoo moles or freckles in the possibility they could be an indication of cancer. Often, people incorporate moles and freckles into the overall design of their tattoo.
There are several factors to take into consideration when getting a tattoo that are just as important as the overall design of the tattoo. Take all of the above considerations with your tattoo design as it is a permanent representation of you.
