Lettering Tattoo Designs

Lettering tattoo designs are gaining in popularity. You can combine lettering with a design, you can add lettering to a previous design to change it up a little or you can have lettering tattoo designs by themselves. When you add lettering to a design you want to make sure the lettering font style matches the type of tattoo image. Everything should flow together.

I think the most important decision is what do you want your lettering tattoo designs to say. Since a tattoo is personal, this is your chance to speak to the world. If you choose a saying, it should be something that would be a lifelong commitment. If you choose a name, make sure it's a name that you will still want 20 years from now. One of the biggest sources of tattoo regret is a name of a past love. Unfortunately tattoos last longer than most relationships.

If you go to a good online tattoo gallery you can have everything you need in one place to make all your choices. You can see different lettering styles, get information on translations and see if you want to add an image to your design. One note about lettering tattoo designs in a foreign language, check with several different sources to make sure your translation says what you want it to say. There is nothing more horrifying than to walk around with an incorrect lettering tattoo.
