Tattoo placement + other questions

Recommended Posts

Hi!

So my sister and I are planning on getting a matching tattoo... idk if any of you remember but it was gonna be just me getting her name and a butterfly, but my sister wanted to do it too so here we are. Problably gonna be sometime next month, or beginning of november.

we cant decide where to get it, and its bothering us really bad. also, its hard to find a font we both like, because she doesnt like traditional fonts and all the google image script ones she likes are total shit. Who knew it would be so hard to write out Bonita Cecilia?

So any way you could steer us in the right direction, we'd appreciate it.

Also, as a side note, planning on getting a flapper lady head on my thigh within the next two months as well... excited! haha also gonna match my friend, she wanted to get something great gatsby related with me

I think the right direction would be going to a shop at this point, you already know what you want get tattooed. Going back in forth on this forum for two weeks trying to find an answer or spending ten minutes at the tattoo shop figuring out what will work and what the tattooer (the professionals) suggest seems like an easy choice. Plus it would be impossible to try to figure out where you should get your tattoo over the internet. This forum generally gives good advice regarding tattooing, but the tattoo shop is the best fastest resource around.

As far as getting the same thing, it's going to be hard if aren't into the same tattoos. You guys are both individuals and will like different things, so even if the tattoo differs slightly it will still be something you did together for the same reason. The experience itself can be your solidarity. Otherwise if it's that important to be the same you have to just agree on something, even if it means one person getting what the other person wants, I mean it's just lettering it's says the same thing no matter what the "font" is. Keep the whole process simple and relatively pain free so you focus on this being a fun event.

Precisely. In the end, if you both don't 100% agree, then getting exact copies will leave one of you thinking "if only" for the rest of your life.

I have matching tattoos with my twin (they say twin) but mine is black, hers is purple and mine is by the hinge in my forearm and hers is on her back, I don't think they have to be the same or in the same place. If you guys can't agree on anything then agree to disagree lol and do w.e you want

I was wondering what a good filler would be for newer age bright tattoos. my tattoos are very bright and i am trying to finish my 1/4th sleeve. i have looked everywhere for a very colorful and flowing filler but found none. any help/ pictures would be great.

@Ducky15568 See that's where the confusion starts, people start saying unknown terms. Personally if you were to have a "1/4 sleeve" too me that would just be an unfinished 1/2, 3/4, or full sleeve..... and newer age is a term I don't hear. But I'm going to assume it's a "New school" ( a lot of color, thinner outline, and kinda cartoonist).

To answer your question, what do you have in the first place? I forgot the exact quote from Dan Higgs, but something along the line of "it doesn't matter what you get tattooed, cause once it's there, it's there. You could get a tank and a Barbie doll next to each other, and it's fine."

To answer your question i have a duck, MHP patch, a Deku, and a Moon. as for the terms i use to explain myself, they make sense to me. (people where im from use 1/4th sleeve too, not that that matters) Im from a small town in montana so Tattoos and their terms are mostly new to me.

Yeah I didn't mean any disrespect or anything. I was just trying to educate you on some common known terms. And as for the tattoos that you may you want to get, it's really all up to what you want.

Ive attached a 3 years (give or take a month) photo of one of my magpies by Mr Dunning  - just done on the right - today on the left - yes I know it's the wrong way round Actually  - while none of us is getting tattooed - how about a pic of your favourite that you have had inked  (or favourites that you have had inked) and a link to Instagram for the artist  (or artists) what do you reckon?🙂
