If your going to get lettering done make sure you know what fonts style you want there are several styles and some look betters than others. Depending on the size, word and placement you can really get some good lettering done. Other things you can do is visit a good artist and tell him you ideas and see what they come up with. Most tattoo artist are pretty good with lettering. Here are a few places you can purchase and do research on lettering.

If the book don’t work and you are not sure about going to an actual Tattoo Shop to find an artist you can always go online. Remember what ever you do your going to pay a little for the design but at least your going to get what you want. Don’t let anyone ever force you into something that you don’t want.

That is just a few of the online shops you can find. If you still have questions you can email me at info@inkspirationalwords.com and I would be happy to help. Remember to find a legal tattoo artist in your area to give you your tattoo as this is an investment and you get what you pay for.

What to consider when getting a back Tattoo

Thursday, September 27th, 2012

When you are considering getting a back tattoo you have to think about several things.

  • Position
  • Size
  • Location
  • Is it Themed

The Position and Location determine a lot in this type of scenario Position meaning left, middle or right and location meaning upper back, shoulder blade or lower back. This is important especially when you are thinking about making the tattoo a themed tattoo. Tattoos with themes will determine where you put your tattoo because you have to think about the other pieces that will be added later.

This photo shows how position is everything the tree starts on the lower side of the persons back and end up on the opposite upper back leaving room for expansion. Even if the person with this tattoo decided not to get another one the tattoo in itself is a nice piece. That is why it is so important to get something that looks nice no matter if its stand alone or if you want to add to the piece later. The rule is each piece should look good enough to stand on its own. This way if later in life you find you can’t afford to move forward you still have a nice tattoo that looks good on its own.

I think like any tattoo the important part is planing and research. A lot of people will do their research before going into a tattoo parlor but the main thing you want to do is research after as well. What I mean by that is if you have never worked with the tattoo artist before you might want to go home and look up reviews on this person, well there ask to see past work, ask questions about the individuals history tattooing. You can also go online to sites like Print My Tattoo or Infinite Tattoo and see if you find what your looking for there.

Make sure you know what you want before going out and spending a lot of money on your Tattoo. If you have any questions you can send them my way info@inkspirationalwords.com I am always happy to help someone do a little research on what they want.

Angel Tattoo Designs

Tuesday, June 5th, 2012

The Meaning

Angel tattoos are usually important to people who have a belief in God. Remember in most eyes a human is higher than the angels because even in the Bible God sends Angels to serve and protect humans. Every Angels are assigned a different job but the Angels people choose have tattooed on their body the most is a guardian Angel. This shows that someone is watching over the person themselves. This is usually done after the person has a dramatic life experience or when a loved one passes away.

Finding the right Tattoo.

Remember when getting a guardian Angel tattoo that you get find the right placement for your Angel. Placement and the type of Angel is the key when it comes to any tattoo that has meaning behind it. If you’re getting the tattoo simply because you like the design and it appeals to you that is okay as well. Your placement should be considered however depending on the size of the Angel you are getting.

Finding your Design

Here are several places you can go and find some good Angel Tattoos

No matter where you find your tattoo or who gives it to you just make sure its what you want. Don’t let anyone ever push you into getting something you don’t want.

Interesting but not well thought out Tattoo Idea

Wednesday, May 9th, 2012

Tattoo Ideas

So I was browsing videos the other day to get some new ideas for a write up. It wasn’t very long before I found a couple of videos. Not sure how people feel about this but I can tell you my opinion.

Tattoos and Technology

The first is not so bad I just think that it wasn’t thought out. With the way technology changes to have a tattoo based off an app and scanner linked to a web page is really kind of silly. But hey its your body do what you want. I admit it’s a cool concept and it might sound great at the time but again. technology changes so much that who knows how long this site, link or video will be up. So now you are stuck with a tattoo on your chest with a code that non of the new scanners can read. If they even use scanners in the future.  I am not trying to discourage anyone from getting a tattoo or trying new ideas for body modifications i am just asking that they be thought out. It is something I have preached time and time again. But like everything this is your choice.

The Good Old Eyeball

One of my other complaints and this one seems to be worse than the other is eyeball Tattoo.  Now this is not a new concept but why people this is a poor choice, with today have colored contacts that can change your whole eye color why would you do this to yourself. Something less permanent would be more ideal. All I ask is that you stop and think about what your doing to yourself. Grant it I am not saying every tattoo has to have a meaning all I am saying is this is permanent. Think about years down the line if this choice is still going to be a wise one. For an Eyeball tattoo or a newly developed technology tattoo idea I don’t’ think it is.

Please comment or send me your thoughts and as always if you would like to be featured on this site please feel free to let me know.

Picking out your Next Tattoo Design

There are several places on line you can go and get Tattoo Designs. Some like The Worlds Biggest Tattoo Store offers a variety of Tattoo designs to look at and other such as Tattoo Shading The Black & Grey Wash Style Guide simply teach you about the techniques of shading a black and grey tattoo.

Why shop online for a tattoo design

With today’s market there really is no reason to go to a tattoo parlor and flip through a cookie cutter style book with no originality in it. So you get a tattoo and days later find five other people sharing the same ink you thought would be one of a kind. Don’t get me wrong you can use the books to get an Idea about what you like but if you know your style and you know the design you might want ask the Tattoo artist to come up with something, have your friends or yourself draw up a concept or just go to a place online like NEW!!!Tattoo Designs U.s – Unique Content to get something you really want and like.

There is no reason to run around town looking for a good artist when you can sit at home and come up with a design, however it is highly recommended to find a great Tattooist working at a shop that is up to all of your State codes. This can prevent you from getting something that looks totally different then what you wanted and then finding out late that the guy didn’t use a new needle on you. With a fly by night tattoo in my basement guy you could end up getting more then just a tattoo. I always recommend going with a well knowing Trusted Tattooist that takes their time to get you what you want well keeping your safety in mind at all times.

Here is a some more online Tattoo design companies you might want to check out.

Tattoo Magazine Subscriptions and what I found

Friday, May 27th, 2011

Finding a good Tattoo magazine for cheap

I did some research to see how much cheaper it is to buy a Tattoo Magazine subscription rather then buying one at a time. I found several magazines and checked into it. and This is what I found.

Any way what I found was that yes tattoo magazines are cheaper if you buy the subscriptions but with a little searching the Subscriptions can also come down on price. Just take tattoo magazine for instance If you buy from Amazon what normally cost 73.00 a subscription is now 34.00 coming close to only 3.00 a magazine for 12 months.

Tattoo Magazines from Japan!

I also wanted to share the tattoo magazine with you Its something new to me, I don’t read Japanese but I love their work.

Find other products from tattoo magazines to pin up girl outfits.

You can also visit my Amazon Tattoo Store to find other tattoo products.

Tattoo Goo. Take care of your Tattoo the right way.

Tuesday, May 24th, 2011

So I was looking on-line through my store and I thought I would show you this. Every-time I talk to Artist or even check on site for a good product for tattoo care this comes up again and again. My thoughts on that was why not put it out front so everyone can enjoy it.

Make sure your Tattoo heals the way it should, don’t take chances on your investment. Remember a Tattoo is like an open sore you have to take care of it or it might lead to scaring or loss of color why take the chances. There are also other products I will share in the future.

Also Remember at any time you can visit my two stores. Amazon http://astore.amazon.com/inkspiwords-20 or my Personal Store Inkspirationalwords.com http://www.cafepress.com/Inkspirationalwords

Some good advice for people new to Tattoos.

How to take care of your Ink, even if this is not your first Tattoo.

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010

If it is your first Tattoo an artist tells you the care that your Tattoo should be getting. Remember this is to some extent an open sore until it heals. So I figured I would cover her questions because I feel this is something you should ask your Artist every time you get a Tattoo. Why you ask, well things change. Not only do we find new advances in the Tattoo world but almost too often we forget the basics. Another reason is if you’re not going to the same artist you might get different ways to protect your tattoo. Always remember to ask the following basic questions if your Tattoo artist fails to inform you of the care for your new investment.

Should we re-wrap it every time we shower or go in the pool, etc, to keep it protected or are showers a good way to keep it rinsed and clean?

Remember I am not an expert but these questions and more are answered on my “Caring for a new tattoo” page. Be sure to ask your Tattoo Artist first before following any other advice.

This blog post will be followed up with a photo and short video of Eve Batelle’s Tattoo.
