Custom Ink – Make It Personal
A lot of people like to choose tattoos that other people have, or maybe they’ve seen a picture they like and want an exact copy on their skin. This is great, but if you want an original design, something new and unique, think about getting custom ink.
If you’re thinking of getting a tattoo, it can be a great idea to get a customized design. There are different ways you can get a unique tattoo. If you have an original design, you can guarantee there is no-one else with your tattoo anywhere! Here are three ways you can start thinking about your custom tattoo.
Do you have an idea about what you want on your skin but don’t know how to describe it? Maybe you’ve seen some examples of what you like and want to combine different images or ideas? Collect some images from the internet or magazines and take them in to the tattoo studio. Have a discussion with the tattoo artist about your ideas and show them the examples. They will be able to draw up a custom design based on these.
Another way to have custom ink is to take ideas straight from your mind and onto paper. Draw your idea. Make it as clear as possible, but don’t worry if it’s not a work of art. The tattoo artist will use your instructions and idea to create the final design. Don’t be afraid if it’s bad quality or if it has notes to explain what you mean. Your job is to come up with the idea. The tattoo artist will see it and create a beautiful tattoo that’s probably even better than you planned!
The final way to get some custom ink on your skin can really be a lot of fun. If you have no idea what you want, but you know you really want a tattoo, why not ask your tattoo artist to design something just for you? The artist might ask you some questions about what you’re interested in and what you like. Once they have an idea about you, they can draw something with you in mind. Or maybe just let them draw something amazing. Remember you don’t have to have it. Who knows? Maybe your artist can come up with the most unique design that really shows who you are.
