What Makes a Good Tattoo?
So we all know about tattoos, they have become a huge staple of modern day society and are now heavily influenced by fashion. But what actually makes a good tattoo?
Getting a quality tattoo involves a number of considerations that must be put in place. Here are some of the factors that make a good tattoo
Identify your personality
A good tattoo is one which identifies with your personality. Each and every person has their own unique personality. This includes what you strongly believe in, the qualities that you identify with. Just like a person’s personality tattoos also stay with a person for long.
Long term ideas
Tattoos last for long periods of time and should not be based on issues that concern a short period of time or a phase of life. One should focus on ideas that are life time when choosing a tattoo. Trends change and people also transform basing a tattoo on a short term idea cause one to have it removed once the idea has become old fashioned.
Get the right size
When getting a tattoo of your choice, do not be so conservative. Many people have regretted even after getting the right choice of a tattoo because they got the size wrong. Always consider a larger size of a tattoo that can be able to capture the details and have a greater aesthetic value. Getting tiny tattoos is regrettable most of the time.
Use expert artists
Not every tattoo artist is the good in designing the tattoo that you require. A tattoo a artist plays a vital role and determines the quality of a tattoo that you can get. One has to be inquisitive from friends who have quality tattoos on where they got their tattoo from. An expert artist equals a quality tattoo and one cannot afford to miss that.

Avoid mushrooming trends
Some trends just appear for a given period of time and then disappear. If you spot a design that everyone is eager to get, then one should probably avoid it at all costs. This is because it’s a likely trend that has just come up and will die down after sometime. Jumping on the bandwagon of this trend might make one to regret a few years after.
Choice of body part
The choice of the part of the body where the tattoo is to be placed is critical when getting a tattoo. Some tattoo designs do not work well with some areas of the body. The part of the body in which the tattoo is placed determines whether the tattoo will be easily visible or hidden. A good tattoo expert should be better placed to advice their client on where best a tattoo should be done.
Get an ideal design
Some little research on the ideal design of the tattoo that you need is necessary. It helps broaden your ideas on the kind of tattoo that you need. Not every design works for everyone. There are a good number of authentic online galleries that one can go and choose a design that pleases them.
Have the details.
One should have in mind the details of the tattoo that they want, the specific design shape and size. This should also be discussed in details with the tattoo artist so that there is total agreement on what you want. Sometime a print out might be necessary to make clear what you want.
