After reaching the decision to get a tattoo done, the next major decision is how to choose a tattoo design. This body art can look extremely cool if the design is chosen carefully. The design selection should be based on the understanding that this body art will be a permanent making on your body and removal can be quite an expensive yet painful procedure. So, in order to avoid any regrets later it is always right to make the best choice initially.
Don’t Make any Harsh Decisions:
The decision of getting a tattoo should not be spontaneous and needs lot of thought and consideration. Before choosing a design, think diligently. Here are few things that you may regret later if not thought carefully on:
- The design should not like genitalia as it will look really terrible.
- If you want to write something on your body then it should not be misspelled, otherwise it will be too late to notice.
- Any design that gives your children an odd impression about you should be avoided.
- Anything should not be written in a language you are not confident in.
Consider where you want to get it done:
Tattoos are a beautiful way to express your individuality and uniqueness thus, the design should be chosen carefully. Moreover, you must carefully consider the place where you want to get inked. Although it’s a matter of personal preference, but one must avoid getting it done at odd places. Some people would like to choose the area according to the pain factor where it will hurt the least.
Most painful areas to get tattooed:
- Men – spine, chest and abdomen
- Women – spine, ankle, ribcage
Least Painful areas:
- Men – arm, buttocks and back
- Women – thigh, buttocks, abdomen and shoulder
Design with some Meaning:
This is yet another crucial aspect of selecting a tattoo design. One must not go for the art that is shown in studios. It is always better to go with your unique design. If want to get some quotes written then chose it carefully and decide its font as well. Initially after selecting the design you must try and draw its representation. This will give you a fair idea as how the tattoo will look like.
After all this get a printout of the final design and try a rehearsal run beforehand. You can get inked with henna to get a temporary version of the design. Last but not the least you should always think before you ink.
