Every person who has ever gotten a tattoo had to start with an idea for its design. Of course, sometimes this is done on a dare, as in the case of the Rolex one that Mark McGrath received after a night of drinking. Let’s just say that he called it his dumbest tat. Don’t make the same mistake. Choose your tattoo wisely. Do your research ahead of time and go into the shop with a clear image of what you would like to receive, otherwise, you may end up hating your chosen design the next day or you may choose one that will become embarrassing later in life. Any inked design that you put on your body should be somewhat unique in that there should be a reason or a meaning behind the design you choose. Don’t just find yourself in the tattoo parlor with a blank stare on your face searching through thousands of images…do some research before ever stepping inside the shop.
If you are a girl, maybe you would like to have one in the shape of a heart or maybe a butterfly. If you are a man, maybe the tribal designs are more to your liking. Whichever is the case for you, take your time and search out the online galleries of art available. At home, using the online gallery, you will not feel so rushed to make a decision. You can take as long as you like to look at the images. Once you find a few you like print them out and ask you friends what they think. They will give you an honest opinion and tell you what they like best. Remember, this tattoo will be with you for a long time…maybe forever, so make sure you pick the one right for you.
