Getting a tattoo is a big deal and trying to decide on what design you are going to get can be tricky. Relying on a tattoo artist can be problematic a lot of the time unless you can get one of the top places like Miami Ink, so you should really have an idea of what you are going to get.
There are a ton of options from a star, dragon, tribal, celtic, flower or butterfly to name a few, but you will probably be best off getting something tat has some personal meaning to you.
The other thing you probably don’t want to do is to go into a shop and see what is available on the wall. Chances are there are many others in your town or city with exactly the same design if it is a personal design of the tattoo artist. There is nothing wrong with that necessarily but you might like to get something that you won’t see on many others when you are out and about.
You can actually go through an online tattoo gallery to choose in advance these days. The best galleries have thousands of designs and you can show them to a tattooist to do for you, or even to alter to your specifications.
Whatever you decide I would suggest you really take a look at what you can get first because there are many people with bad designs that they go on to regret and it doesn’t need to be that way.
