You may already know what tattoo you are going to get. if not, where do you find your inspiration? The answer may be in tattoo galleries.
If you have been yearning to get a tattoo for some time, what is stopping you? Is it the apprehension of visiting a tattoo studio? Perhaps you’re concerned about how much pain is involved? are you worried about what other people will think of it?
One of key reasons may well be that you simple aren’t sure what tattoo to get yet. Perhaps you have an idea of a general style but aren’t sure of which individual design to choose.
So where can you look?
If you visit any local tattoo studios you will find many designs on the walls and in picture albums to look at. however from my experience the availability can be limited. after all, there are only so many physical designs that can be held in a room aren’t there?
Added to that is the pressure of choosing something in a public arena. while you are walking around the studio looking at the walls, you will have other customers getting in the way and perhaps a tattoo artist that keeps asking you if you need any help.
It’s perfectly natural to feel a little rushed in this environment. The artist is only looking after you. but it’s the same in any shop or store. sometimes you JUST WANT TO LOOK IN YOUR OWN TIME
You don’t have to do this anymore. much like any shopping experience, you can do it in the comfort of you own home. Here are some key points to help you choose an ideal tattoo gallery design.
1. Open Google ( or any other search engine) and type in tattoo gallery. There will be plenty to look at. Pick a few from the first page and have a look through the sites.
2. Spend a lot of time looking at all of the available images on offer. if you’re happy to pay for further access into a site then do so. if you want free, You’ll find sites that let you look at the flash designs but not print them off.
3. Now, here’s the trick. Once you have found the ideal design, get some tracing paper and put it on the computer screen (this works best with a laptop as the screen folds almost flat). Lightly trace out the design so that you have an approximate version of the tattoo.
4. do this a number of times until you have a many copies. Now you can experiment with colours to see which you would prefer. The reason for doing all this is to spend time with the tattoo and to get a feel for the design, and make sure you are still happy with it. You may start to lose interest in the design after all this work which is a key indicator.
5. Take your drawings to a tattoo artist. explain in detail what you want. ask the tattoo artist to log onto the same site so that he/she can get a good look at what you have traced from. they should be skilled enough to drawing something up from scratch. Your drawings should have now some different colouring choices for you to discuss with the tattoo artist. they should be able to give you plenty of advice on colouring.
