How do you feel about getting words or phrases tattooed on you forever? I think it’s kinda a bad idea. You might regret lettering as your views change. How do you feel about this? I was just interested about these lettering tattoos because I have a friend who just got his last name tattooed on his back. It looks great but I don’t think its something I could ever get.
I am getting two tattoos to represent each of my children. I want something completely unique (no names, birthdays, hand or foot prints, etc). What is the best advice that you can give to help me pick a unique and meaningful tattoo for my boys? I will probably design it myself and have someone draw it, but I just can’t think of the best way to represent them without having a tattoo that everybody else has. Thanks!
Creating Tattoos With Your Initials
A tattoo with someone’s initials is one of the most meaningful tattoos. Not only do the initials represent someone but they are the initials of someone dear to the person. Some people get the initials of their children tattooed on their body in some form or another. While other people will get the initials of a passed loved one, someone who meant a great deal to the person who has passed away. The most common tattoo with initials is from someone who has passed away. Usually initial tattoos come with other forms of tattoos such as, crosses, religious symbols, flowers as well as skulls. With the initials you can have dates or other meaning full words or letters along with the initials. Some people try to hide the initials of a passed loved one within their other tattoos, so the person with the tattoo knows they are there but no one else does. It makes the initial tattoo more meaningful and special to them.
Just like when two people fall in love, they carve into a tree their initials, so can be their initials tattooed on each other. Some people will add other parts to the tattoo such as a heart, arrow or anything else that symbolizes their love for each other. Angelina Jolie had the initials of the man she married, Billy Bob Thornton, but now she is married to Brad Pitt. Since then she has had the name Billy Bob removed from her tattoo.
Other initial tattoos could be phrases or words that people like or that are meaningful to them. Whatever you choose to do, be sure your initials have meaning and that initial tattoos should not be taken lightly as they are one of the most meaningful tattoos you can get.
Lettering Tattoos For Girls
Girls now-a-days are getting lettering tattoos or tattoos design with words or phrases that have deep meaning to them. Some girls get their favorite quote, a song, scripture, or just a simple name tattooed on them. Each lettering tattoo will be unique because there are hundreds and thousands of different fonts that can be used.
One of the more popular lettering tattoos of today is having your tattoo done in a hand writing font and style. The hand writing style is not only simple, but pretty and looks nice when done. It’s very easy to make this type of tattoo unique since everyone’s handwriting style is completely different. Some of the most painful places to put tattoos on the skin like the sides and chest are also some of the more popular places to put lettering tattoos. For girls, some cannot handle the pain of being tattooed in that area and therefore will opt for a smaller word or very short phrase for their tattoo.
There are many different styles and fonts you can use on your tattoo. It is just a matter of finding what looks the best to you. You will have to keep in mind that the font you pick out will need to fit with the words or phrase you are getting tattoos. If you have a long phrase, you will want to pick a font that is not so big and bulky; otherwise you will find that your tattoo is much bigger than you wanted. Lettering tattoos are not just for girls but guys also get these types of tattoos all of the time.
