Finding the right tattoo is obviously very important since you’ll be wearing it for life. Finding that tattoo can be challenging, and exhausting if you don’t look in the right places. A tattoo gallery can actually take many forms. from print, to online, to outdoors. here are three forms of a tattoo gallery where you can find your ideal tattoo.
1. The Parlor. Naturally there is going to be a decent tattoo gallery in a tattoo parlor. here you can go through books of various designs and photos. The walls should also be covered with various tattoo design ideas. The disadvantage is you’re not in a library where you can sit down and scour through the books for hours or check them out to bring home. You may need numerous visits to a tattoo parlor to look at your favorite designs over and over before making that important decision.
2. The Outdoors. Here’s a tattoo gallery one doesn’t generally think of. But the outdoors provides a vast assortment of tattoo ideas and if you can develop your eyes to see in tattoo imagery, the outdoors can be a great tattoo gallery. Areas of specific interest are graffiti areas where you can view not only potential tattoo images, but murals as well. I personally have a whole graffiti mural picked out which has inspired a tattoo design. Be sure to bring a camera and photograph any ideas.
3. Print books or Online Catalogues. perhaps the best place to see a tattoo gallery is in the comfort of your own dwelling, alone, sifting through a printed book or an online catalogue. here you can really feel out your tattoo design, let it sit with you for a few weeks and then come back to it and see if it’s personally the real deal for you. many guides or books can cut to the chase and show you the latest and best designs available as well as older, classic, tattoo designs.
Getting a tattoo involves deciding on the style you want. one choice is that of getting a single, solid tattoo, or getting a design that is more of a mural design. often times people become split between just getting something simple, but then also having the desire to go for something more elaborate. the two are very different approaches and choices, and there’s advantages to each, and also a way to combine both.
A single tattoo can actually stand out better than an elaborate mural like design. It’s easier visually to pick up on right away, and can pop out more immediately.
It can also do a better job of representing a certain ideal or representation. if you are looking to symbolize something, a single tattoo can do the job in a solid, straight forward manner. if you are looking to tell more of a story, then a mural design may be better.
Mural designs are more elaborate looking, more complex, and sometimes more striking. they require the eye to settle in and study more closely. Murals are more busy as you have different designs and styles fusing as one.
If you have different styles that you like and different designs you are attracted to, a mural design can be perfect as it can infuse all your favorite tattoo ideas together as one.
Also, if you have more of a story to tell with your representation or symbolism, a mural can do the job that a single tattoo might not be able to do.
Getting Both: Single tattoo and Mural design.
If you have any desires on wanting to get a mural design, but are not ready to put it all together, yet still want to get inked as soon as possible, a great idea is choosing a single tattoo design which can be incorporated into a mural at a later date.
This works out great, as you’ll have your tattoo, which will stand out fine on it’s own, yet will serve as the beginning piece to a work in progress. once you get your single tattoo design, more ideas will begin to flow on how you can add more pieces and styles on to it.
