Every Tattoo has a story
Tattoos date back thousands of years,across many ethnic backgrounds but they all have one thing in common,most tattoos have a story behind them.
Some tattoos are of people who
- Are heroes
- Movies Stars
- Mythical Characters
Some Tattoos are things that represent
- A memory
- A eternal love
- A deceased friend or family member
- A gang or club
The first step to getting a tattoo is finding a tattoo shop near you.
I would recommend using google or bing to find out where the best local shops are.
If that doesn't work try the yellow pages or just ask people,If you do that you will soon find a shop.
Then you have to decide what tattoo you are gonna get.
Don't worry most good shops have true artists who will help you out if you just give them a rough description of what you have in mind and they can usually take it from there.
You will make an appointment, most tattoo artists will sketch out a stencil and apply it to the part of the body where you want the tattoo, so you can make sure you are gonna like it before they start tattooing.also helps to make sure it is the right size etc this way they can change it before it is tattooed on you permanently.
Parts of the body that are Tattooed
- The arms
- You can have most any part of the body tattooed.
I am thinking of getting a popular form of tattoo called a portrait on my right chest area.
A portrait is a face like tattoo that looks just like a picture and If I get mine done it will be the color of grey,greys look awesome on portrait tattoos and it will be of my wife.
Most reputable tattoo shops won't let you get a tattoo if you are drunk,so keep that in mind when you go to get your tattoo.
I also recommend that you start out with a small tattoo, that way if you can't take the pain you won't have to suffer much to get your tattoo.
