Getting a tattoo for the first time? Not so fast. Have you decided what kind of tattoo and design you want? Are you sure about your pick? How many times did you think about it? You should not act on impulse because there is no need to rush. It’s not like you can’t remove a tattoo once it has been “encrypted” on your body anymore. But still, having it is a great deal and you surely don’t want to end up with an ugly design that you selected in seconds.
First, find a reliable online tattoo gallery. There are a lot of galleries online, but not all of them are worth your time and money. We did the research and found that Chopper Tattoo is worth considering. They provide you with the largest selection of award-winning online tattoo designs. Picking designs from their database is easy because their designs have been arranged by categories. They also have a tattoo finder based on the size and color of the tattoo.
Second, find the right design, There are thousands of tattoo designs that fall into different categories. Some of the tattoo categories are Abstract, Belly Button, Religious, Tribal, Lower Back and Dragon. You could be missing the best design if you limit yourself to one category. The more choices you have, the closer you are in nailing the ultimate design. You may also expand your search online and check out other galleries. Two other galleries we reviewed are Tattoo Me Now and LA Ink Tattoo Designs, each with over 3,500 tattoo designs in their collection.
Once you are done with your little research, trim your choices down to your top ten designs. Then compare the designs to each other. Ask yourself what do you want? Do you want the simplest or the unique design? Remember, the more complicated your design is, the longer and the more painful the tattoo session will be. When you have finally decided which design you would be willing to show off in the next 10 or 20 years of your life, all that’s left to do is find a reliable tattoo artist that will do the job for you.
