Within the last weeks we received several messages with one main question:
How to find the right design?
Many people described the fact that they would like to get tattooed but just cannot find the right idea. If you know this problem, here are a few tipps and a step-by-step guide on how to come up with an idea without regrets after getting it tattooed.
-MEANING BEFORE STYLE
Ask yourself what it is that you want to express with your new tattoo.
What is the meaning you want to reflect with your new tattoo?
Is there something important you want to perpetuate on your skin?
Take a piece of paper and write it down!
This will help you to bring an idea within yourself to the surface.
-RESEARCH FOR SYMBOLS AND MEANINGS
As soon as you have a slight clue about your idea
start to research for symbols and pictures that resonate with your idea
Make a small collection of pictures you like,
this will be helpful later when you speak with your tattoo artist of trust.
-GET A CLUE ABOUT THE STYLE OF TATTOO YOU WOULD LIKE TO GET AND FIND THE ARTIST OF YOUR TRUST
After having a slight clue about the Idea,
browse the web for finding out which style of tattoos you like.
The industry is growing and there are lots of artists out there.

THE MAIN ONES ARE:
- realistic tattoos
