Beautiful inner wrist tattoo

Hand

Wow, this beautiful photo just wowed us. And we like the unusual and understated placement of the inner wrist tattoo.

How much does a wrist tattoo hurt? Well, first of all, don’t forget that pain is subjective. Not everyone feels pain the same way.

But most people say that when it comes to pain, the wrist isn’t the worst. It’s the bony body parts that hurts the most: the ribs, the hip, the top of the feet rank worse than the wrist.

Other things you have to worry about measure up the same. No worse a spot for infection, so that’s good. Just follow your artist’s after care plan.

And always use a reputable tattoo artist. Word of mouth is usually a good bet

Be bold and unique with your wrist tattoo!

Star of David Arm Tattoo

Star of David Arm Tattoo in colour

Here is a snazzy Star of David Arm Tattoo. This is one way to wear your faith on your sleeve.

The Star of David, has been a Hebrew symbol designating Jewish identity from about Medieval times. It is known in Hebrew as the Shield of David or Magen David.

Check out how this one has the green colour bleeding out from behind it. Very interesting also is use of a knot on the inside.

St Paul’s Cathedral makes a unique thigh tattoo

St Paul’s Cathedral tattoo on thigh

Here is an interesting thigh tattoo. It’s a traditional style of St Paul’s Cathedral in London. It is placed inside an ornate gold frame with traditional roses underneath.

The inspiration for this tattoo is a photo of St Paul’s during the Blitz –  by Herbert Mason

The tattoo owner chose this symbol because it’s a symbol of resilience. London could not be brought low by destruction.

A great way to use architecture in tattoos.

Crazy Beautiful Tattoo Sleeves for Men

Here is another collection of gorgeous and unique tattoo sleeves. You won’t find hum drum or regular designs here…(most people just go to the tattoo parlour and pick one off the wall – really! They spend more time on picking out jeans than they do something that is forever and permanent.)

Above you will find a very striking arm sleeve tattoo in the works. That is after 4 sessions at the tattoo parlour. Below, the tattoo has colour added to it.

This is a great take on the optical illusion of Escher. The birds are either in black, or in white.

How to Add Words to Your Tattoo to Make it More Unique

how to choose fonts for tattoos

If you want to make your tattoo even more unique and special – and I mean, who doesn’t? – then add some words that have a special meaning to you.

In the above example, I took a gorgeous celtic knot tattoo and paired it up with some striking black font and the text I love my tattoo. This is just a fun example – but you can see how you can really create something unique.

It’s easy. Just start with an image that you like for your tattoo, choose a phrase, quote, sentence or even a single word. Choose a font, and the color of the font. Put it all together.

To choose an image, go to Chopper Tattoo, Miami Ink, or Tattoo Me now. They have thousands of tattoos to choose from to really let your imagination flow. You can also download as many as many as you want. Don’t get limited. Let your imagination flow.

Next, choose your phrase. You can choose popular quotes from brainyquote.com. Try poetry. Or something inspirational, or from your religion.

Now you need to choose your font. Go to myfonts.com. They have thousands of fonts to choose from. Search through all the styles. They have a lot! Some categories to look through are vintage, retro, blackletter or calligraphy.

You can even test your phrase with your font – when you choose a font, you can type in your own sample text and have it displayed.
