A lot of people like the way tattoos appear on others and want one for themselves, but have no idea what they would like. It’s a pretty big decision; chances are this is something you’ll have to live with for the rest of your life.
So how do you get “the one”?
More often than not, a lot of people are referring to the internet to find their tattoo ideas.
This has led, in recent years, to more choice, making tattoos more unique to an individual.
Tattoo artists’ design books, usually found lying around their studio or hanging on the studio walls are another place people can get tattoo ideas. Unfortunately, a lot of tattoo artists don’t update their collections often, which leads to the same design getting tattooed on many people over and over again.
So how do you make sure that you have a one-of-a-kind tattoo found nowhere else?
One way to go about this is to get a tattoo pack. These packs come stuffed with dozens of completely original tattoo designs, but you do have to pay for them (though it is usually nominal). The best thing about tattoo packs is that they are guaranteed to be completely original and unique. Chances are, you won’t find many of the designs within the pack anywhere else, making your tattoo truly special. Tattoo packs are easy to pick out of, as they are organized with themes that appeal to different people.
For those who are truly imaginative, you can make an effort to sit down and design your own tattoo, try to come up with things that mean something to you;something that you feel like you’ll never regret.
A great idea is to explore your family’s history and put themes from your heritage into your design. You could try some Teutonic symbols or something similar, for instance, if you are of Germanic heritage.
For people of Celtic heritage, Celtic designs are very popular for people of any descent these days, and are therefore easy to find. It’s also brilliant if you design your own tattoo; tattoo artists are more than happy to look at the design you created sitting at your desk and transfer it to your skin.
In the end, the best way to come up with an idea for a tattoo is to look inside yourself. Don’t draw on things that could change suddenly (jobs, boy/girlfriends, cars, etc), find something that is a part of your very being and try to come up with something related to this.
A design related to your family heritage is great, for example, because your heritage will never change; it is a part of every molecule in your body.
If you can come up with something along these lines, you should have no trouble coming up with tattoo designs that you will be happy with for the rest of your life.
