Tips for Getting a Tattoo You'll Love
Updated: Apr 20
In this day and age, there are a lot of ways to fix a tattoo you hate.
Whether the tattoo artist didn’t do a great job or you went through a messy divorce and you no longer want your ex’s name permanently etched into your skin, there are a lot of reasons why you may want to get rid of or cover up a tattoo, and today, you have more options than ever before to do so. Not only is tattoo removal more effective and less painful than it’s ever been, the talented artists at Fame Tattoos are incredible at covering up unwanted tattoos. But, most people would much rather avoid getting a tattoo that they will eventually hate in the first place. That’s why this blog series is filled with expert tips on how to get a tattoo that you’ll love.
#1. Think long and hard about the design. When you think of a tattoo design, try to think of something that you’ll want on your skin permanently. The name of your on-again-off-again girlfriend or boyfriend is probably not a great option. A lot of people will tell you that a tattoo should have some sort of special meaning to you, but at the end of the day, the tattoo just needs to make you happy — just make sure that it will keep making you happy for the rest of your life.
#2. Research tattoo artists. The quality of the work the artist you choose produces will have a direct impact on the quality of the tattoo you end up with, so it’s essential to find the right tattoo artist for the job, and that’s going to require some research. Before you start researching, however, it’s important to know what kind of design you want. Some tattoos artists are best at realistic tattoos, whereas others may thrive at traditional tattoos. Find an artist that has a portfolio full of the photos of the kind of tattoo you want.
#3. Don’t settle for the cheapest rate. When you are doing your research for the right tattoo artist, you’ll probably notice that tattoo artists and shops work for a wide range of rates. If you’re on a budget, it can be tempting to simply choose the artist who offers the lowest rates, but this is a recipe for ending up with a subpar tattoo that you’ll hate. For the best results, you’ll need to choose an artist who is experienced and talented, and that will mean paying higher rates.
No one wants to pay for a tattoo they hate, but thousands of people all across the United States do so each and every day. Don’t be one of them!
