Tips for Picking the Best Tattoo for You

The decision to get a tattoo is something that should not be taken lightly. A tattoo will remain on your skin for the rest of your life, unless you want to go through the painful removal surgery.

Therefore, it is better, and less expensive for you, if you make the right decision and get a tattoo that is right for you. So, you have to get the decision right the first time.

Is Removal the Only Option?

It is worth noting that if the tattoo is small enough and light enough, then you do have the option of having the tattoo covered with a new tattoo, and therefore, removal is not your only option.

If the original tattoo is very dark, then you might have to have the removal procedure done to lighten the tattoo and then you can have it covered with another.

Just make sure that you get some advice from an experienced tattoo artist before you go through any procedures or pay for a new tattoo that is not suitable.

If you are thinking about having a tattoo done, then you have done the right thing by searching for more information and tips on how to get the right tattoo for you. Read on for some more information.


If you want to get a tattoo of someone’s name on your body, then it should be a permanent member of your family that you have got on with for years. If you have had arguments with them in the past, then it is not recommended because you will be stuck with their name on your body.

Some people might want to get their boyfriend’s/girlfriend’s/spouse’s name on their body, and it is their decision whether they do this or not. However, you won’t know what will happen in the future and if things don’t work out, you won’t want their name on their body.

You should also think about what will happen if you meet someone else and they are the one for you, but you still have another person’s name on your body. It won’t go down well and the new person might want their name on your body as well. You might very well end up with a list of your exes on your body.


If you want a picture on your body, make sure you have seen it as a stencil first because some images will not translate as well as a tattoo. Before getting the tattoo done, ask the artist to put the stencil on your body, so that you can see what the outline looks like. They should not have a problem doing this.

Custom Design

If you want something custom designed work then you will have to admit that the process will take a little bit longer. This is nothing to worry about really. You want the artist to take their time and get the design right before you have it tattooed on your body.

If you are not happy with the final design then don’t be afraid to tell the artist. They should be fine with making the changes that you need. If they are not, then just take your idea to another tattoo parlor. They don’t have to walk around with the tattoo on their body, so they should understand that you want it to be perfect. Their pride should not be damaged if you want them to change something on the design.

A tattoo is something that you should cherish. You should look at it and feel proud to wear it.
