To find a tattoo that is right for you, you need to find something which has meaning to you. It is better to choose something that is meaningful and not just an arbitrary design. It could be a child's name, parent's name, a symbol of something which means a lot to you like military unit or martial arts designs. People choose insignia that would be patriotic or has a personal meaning. You need to make sure you will not ever get tired of it as it is permanent. The most popular tattoos appear to be roses, butterflies for ladies, oriental lettering, and any kind of fancy lettering. If you are not ready for the permanency of a tattoo, a temporary tattoo can be made with henna and it might last about a month. A henna tattoo is an herbal dye that is put on the exterior part of the skin to stain it.


The location of where you would like the tattoo placed should be based on what part of your body you would like to show and how often you would like others to see it. Also, you need to pick a design that fits the part of your body you would like tattooed. An example, choose a design for the upper arm that might be wide at the shoulder and taper down the arm.




People with darker complexions should look at a tattoo with high contrast or thicker line; maybe a larger design with stronger shading that is not subtle. Darker colors like dark blue, red, or green will display a design better than light colors such as pinks, peach, and yellow will. Orange will not show well on dark skin.
