In-House DesignsMost tattoo artists like to design tattoos in their free time. Some of them are quite talented. Of course, many of them are quite terrible as well! Regardless, visit a few local tattoo parlors. If you're impressed with the designs of the first place you walk into, think of how impressed you might be with the second or third. It is important to remember that one needn/t observe tattoo designs in parlors in rigid terms. In other words, if you spot a design that you like, but would like a lot more with a few small adjustments, talk to the artist. They aren't called "artists" for nothing! If they're worth their salt, they will be happy to help tweak one of their designs into the perfect tattoo for you.
The InternetThe internet can usually solve about nine problems out of ten, and "where can I find a good tattoo design?" isn't one of the exceptions. There are literally tens of thousands of tattoo designs available on the internet. The best part is, most of them are free! How do you go about getting a design you find online to wind up on your arm (or back, or ass, or. well. you get the point)? Simply print it off. Most tattoo artists should be capable of inking about anything you find. For exceptionally complicated designs, don't be afraid to prod around a little bit to verify that your tattoo artist knows what he or she is doing. The last thing you want is to be someone's test dummy for the most challenging tattoo they've created in their life!
If you find several designs that you like, and chances are you will, print all of them off and consult with your artist to help narrow your decision. After all, they do this for a living; you'll be surprised some of the little nuances they might be able to point out that will help you make up your mind.
Design Your OwnThere's no better way to get exactly the tattoo that you want other than by designing one yourself. Of course, you may be thinking, "but, I'm horribly inartistic!" If that is the case, give it a shot anyway. Remember, your design doesn't have to be a work of art, it just has to be something from which the real artist (the guy with the painful needle thingy) can characterize what it is that you want. The best tattoo artists will happily take your stick-figure abomination of a tattoo design (that you probably drew on a napkin at Burger King) and recreate it into the vision you had all along.
Recruit A FriendThis is a gutsy way of going about choosing a tattoo design, but it can also be one of the most satisfying. If you have any close friends who are particularly artistic, ask them to help you with a design. I'm sure you'll be surprised at how willing people are to meet this request. It can be hard to visualize one's self, let alone visualize a tattoo that perfectly captures your essence. I say, leave all the dirty work to another person! As long as you trust your friend, ask him or her to create a design that they feel perfectly captures what you're going for. Many of the most loved tattoos to grace an epidermis were designed by, who else? A loved one.
It would be easy to bombard you with different kinds of very popular tattoos being inked all over the world today. But if you came here to be told that a barbed-wire bicep tattoo is "cool", then you need more help than I can provide. Everyone knows what types of tattoos are popular. I'll bet a dollar to a punch in the stomach that many of them will be anything but "cool" in a decade. So rather than focus on what everyone else is doing, let's focus on how to go about finding a unique tattoo design that will be something you'll proudly display for years to come. After all, Family Guy might be a popular TV show today, will it be popular forever? Probably not. Your tattoo, however, plans to be around for quite a long time.
Finding the perfect tattoo can sometimes be as impossible as finding the perfect spouse or dog. One day you'll love it, and the next you'll wish it wasn't there. Like a friend of mine who was dared to tattoo a figure of George Bush doing yoga on his forearm while drunk - there never was a day he regretted that move. As with all things permanent, it would be wise to address any candidate tattoo design with the utmost scrutiny. After all, it's your skin and that ink isn't exactly going to wash off in the shower. When looking for a tattoo design, there are plenty of options at your disposal. Don't be afraid to search endlessly for the perfect design. If you ask people with multiple tattoos to tell you about their favorite one, chances are they'll tell you it took them a long time to settle on the design. Here are a few ideas for tracking down a tattoo design that you'll fall in love with:
Avoid References to Anything MainstreamAn easy way to filter out any "popular" (and thus, likely not timeless) tattoo is to avoid anything transient. Pretend for a moment that you're an alien observing Earth from outer space. You look around, and generally get a really good feel for the place. Then, you fly away and come back ten years later to look around again. If you think your tattoo has any connection to something that the aliens might see on their first trip, but might not see on their second trip, scrap the idea immediately. This includes characters from movies or TV shows, funny references, or the name of your current partner.
Figure Out What Defines YouIn a society with as much pressure and judgment as ours, it can be hard to remember "who you are" at the end of the day. To remember this, you might spend some time in solitude or in the company of really close friends. In this moment, you'll be more aware of the worldview and qualities you won't mind expressing through a tattoo. A tattoo design that truly captures the essence of an individual is almost never a bad one. Trust me, your essence is more than just Cartman from South Park mooning someone or the logo of the superhero whose movie is coming out this summer.
Ambiguity Is GoodIn general, try to avoid any tattoo that doesn't need an explanation. A heart that says .Mom. in the middle of it is great and all, but no one needs to ask what it means. It means you love your Mom. The point of a tattoo is to identify yourself and grab the attention of others. Almost everyone loves their Mom, and for exactly that reason, it doesn't make for an interesting tattoo. Of course, you don't want a tattoo that is so ambiguous that even you don't know what it means! So the pretty Chinese symbol hanging on the wall of the tattoo parlor that I think means "love and peace or maybe solidarity, I forget," isn't going to impress anyone. The best tattoo would be the one you'd be most likely to want in a world where you are the last remaining human.
Ancient tribes in the Middle East have also been discovered to have employed some interesting tattooing practices. The cremated ashes of a loved one were often used to fill a self-inflicted wound. This was done as a sign of respect and as a way of grieving the departed.
Modern tattooing may owe some of its popularity to British Royalty. After visiting less advanced cultures, such as the Tahitians, King George V was inspired by their practice of tattooing so much that he asked one tribe to ink him with a cross. Later, on a trip to Japan, he received a dragon on his forearm. After that, he hopped on his motorcycle and went cruising for chicks. Err. that might have been one of his distant relatives.
While it might seem counterintuitive to think of tattooing as an upper-class activity, it became just that in 19th century Europe. Even Winston Churchill's mother had a tat, a snake around her waist. Inspired by his her, Winston himself sported an anchor tattoo on his forearm for most of his life.
In the Western world, tattoos have evolved from a way of distinguishing oneself as upper class to a fashion identifier or attention grabber. In America, tattoos are rampantly popular. It is estimated that as many as two-thirds of young Americans have at least one tattoo. Ironically, this popularity was fueled significantly by World War II. Many American soldiers were tattooed while touring Europe, which was a more popular continent for tattoos at the time. When they returned home with freshly inked skin, the practice made its way into mainstream culture.
Criminal and gang subculture have also embraced tattoos. Because of this, tattooing could not be more distant from its once "high class" reputation of yesteryear. Many hold negative associations towards tattoos due to their use as a way of identifying one's self as a member of a gang or prison inmate.
The negative implications that gang members bring to the tattoo world are at least partially offset by a very benign form of tattooing, temporary tattoos. These became popular among grade-schoolers in the 1990s since they provide the impact of a normal tattoo without causing permanent damage to the skin. Most of these tattoos are made with nothing more than glue and pigments extracted from vegetation. Temporary tattoos are not held in a respectable light by tattoo enthusiasts. It would not be wise to walk into a parlor and ask the artist if they have any temporary tattoos.

I have seen some of your paintings and they are awesome! How often do you paint compared to Tattooing? Do you have a favorite painting?
wait to hear more about it.
community who makes you push yourself?
Both awesome motivations for ink, I must say. If there are any famous people you’ve done ink for, who are they, and what did they have done?
I do tattoos at Acme Ink in Louisville, KY. I do them as clean and nice as I can and I do them very fast. I also paint a little.

It's not easy to pick a tattoo, especially if you're looking for a meaningful and original design. Plus, it needs to be beautiful. Cool tattoo designs are available for women who want all of the above qualities. It's important to know that you can't pick a tatt on a whim or with a brief browse. Then you'll end up with one you hate later or it's like everyone else's. You don't want to spend the money and energy and end up with the same design as your neighbor across the street.
This is why many women are looking for their tatt designs on online galleries where categories are broken up for easy access. Some websites even have professional tattoo artists creating tattoos and new ones are added often. This makes it easier to find a tattoo that's unique, original and high quality.
Lately some of the cool tattoo designs women are leaning towards are ones with anime tatts, traditional American tattoos, Japanese tattoos, Indian/hindu tatts, and the extremely popular fairy and floral designs. Knowing this, then look in these categories first and see if anything catches your eye. You are looking for something that you will like for a long time. Then consider where you want it on your body and think about how big you want the size of the tattoo. If it's too small, the colors will blur together, and it will be hard to see.
* A cool design is one that's popular right now.
* It's made by a professional.
* Very few people have it, because it was recently added to the gallery.
* You don't like tatts that much.
* The colors blurred because the tattoo was small.
Cool tattoo designs are really about what you want and what is significant to you.
