Always do your research when it comes to tattoo designs

Before getting a tattoo it is essential that you spend some time looking at tattoo ideas, designs and fonts. This week we talk about how to source good tattoo ideas.

The last thing you want on (or rather under!) your skin is a design that you might regret in a few years. So here’s our first advice on tattoo ideas: find something unique. Don’t copy anyone else’s tattoo. The Internet is a good starting point to start looking for tattoo ideas. You can use Google images as a tool for inspiration.

Our tattoo studio in Auckland has folders with tattoo ideas and designs to flick through. Always keep in mind that these are just ideas. Ultimately, you should ask your tattoo artist to come up with a unique design for you. This might take a few days, but it is worth the wait. For a true tattoo artist (and for you!), nothing will be more satisfying than juggling with ideas. So really the best thing you can do is speak to a tattoo artist directly.

If you are looking for inspiration, why not drop in at Sunset tattoo in Auckland? Our tattoo artists Tom, Fabian and Tristan will be happy to discuss your tattoo ideas with you. They can design a tattoo from scratch and give you honest advice.

Simply give us a call, or drop by our studio in Ponsonby. We’re always happy to help with any questions you may have.
