Way back, during ancient times, a tattoo was a symbol of belonging to a tribe or clan. Nowadays a tattoo doesn’t just get you closer to art – it makes a piece of art out of your skin.
Tattoos are more and more frequently seen on mature people. Those who get tattoos are less likely to be judged by others; and who could really judge people who have a copy of a Leonardo, Van Gogh or Gustav Klimt on their skin?
The ink formulas have improved significantly. Now, an extremely wide variety of colors and shades gives a tattoo artist so many opportunities! Combined with quality instruments, it allows to do anything you want – from beautiful flowers to hypnotic ornaments.
Our artists have an extensive experience. They know everything about tattooing instruments and ink colors to give the right shade to your tattoo. They also make unique customized sketches and can match a tattoo style to every individual customer.
If you’re getting a tattoo because you’re drunk or high, rebellious or your friends are goading you, then you’re getting a tattoo for all the wrong reasons and the choice you make is likely to reflect this lack of forethought.
Consider where you want the tattoo.
This will have some influence on the design, especially if it’s an intimate design. For any parts of your body that you show regularly (and that is a lot of body if you’re a bikini or board shorts wearer), then that doesn’t leave much space for intimate tattoos that you don’t want your grandmother seeing.
Spend some time refining the design and
choosing one that has meaning for you.
Do some research first. Head over to the library or a reputable tattoo parlor and look through tattoo design book
Try a rehearsal run of the tattoo.
Use henna to get a temporary version of the design. You won’t be able to see different colors, or certain looks, but you will be able to judge the feeling of a tattoo. Henna lasts a week to a month.
Think before you ink.
Think about it a lot. When you are certain, wait some more just to make sure. Ultimately, a well chosen tattoo design can be a thing of beauty and a confidence enhancement. A poorly chosen one done on a whim can leave you unhappy for all time.
