If you’re looking for a highly personalized tattoo, there’s nothing better than turning towards name tattoos. It is a very custom tattoo because everyone’s name is not only unique to them but it also entails how you want the tattoo designed. Indeed, the tattoo design is just as important as what the name is. So, before you run off half cocked, read this list about how one goes about getting a name tattoo.
What’s in a name?
The first question to ask yourself before even considering getting a name tattoo is what name will you use. It may seem apparent, but many people don’t actually get their own name on the tattoo. Often, the name of a family member or child comes before the name of the person getting tattooed. Why get your own name inscribed on your skin? Is it there in case you forget your own name? While some people do opt to have their own name inked into their skin, many more use this opportunity to honor someone else. Consider who is important to you.Read More
