Get a Lettering Tattoo the Right Way

Tips for Achieving a Cool Lettering Tattoo

If you are interested in getting lettering for your next tattoo you will need to consider first several factors. The font can change the whole feeling of a tattoo, so you must make sure it fits not only the phrase or sentence you have selected but also your tattoo goals and personality.

Letter-Based Tattoo Basic Rules

Size Matters

It Should Be Clear and Legible

If you want to get a poem, a quote, or any other text tattooed, you definitely want it to be readable. Over time, the tattoo will end up blurring slightly. Therefore, we do not recommend a no-outline design. Otherwise, you risk ending up with an unreadable piece of watercolor-looking shapeless thing on your skin.

Pick a Font that Fits the Feel of Your Tattoo

It is easy to fall for a specific lettering style just because it looks great. However, you need to make sure your lettering fits the look you want to accomplish. For example, if you are getting a delicate watercolor floral design, you don’t want block lettering. The lettering you select must complement the vibe you want for your tattoo. The right font will do the job.

Make Sure the Word Is Spelled Correctly

Don’t just run and say: “that looks amazing, let’s do it right away.” Make sure the words are right, especially if you have chosen a foreign language, if the artist can’t speak it you can’t expect him to know how to spell it. Triple check and do your research!!!
