How does one go about selecting a tattoo design

Finding the perfect tattoo art work for your body can be quite a bit of a challenge especially when you know that the design you choose is going to stay with you forever. The last thing you would want to do is to select a tattoo design which you thought looked great at the moment, but regret having it later.

So how does one go about selecting a tattoo design? Trust me when I say that going with your instincts is not really a great idea as it may seem at first. Selecting a tattoo design within an hour (or less) of walking into a tattoo parlor is something most people regret later. You need to be sure of the design art you select for your body.

My advice to people getting a tattoo has always been to select a design or artwork and then give it some time to sink in. It is only after a day or two or more of selecting a tattoo design that you'll know whether you really want it or not. The best way to go about it is to browse through tattoo art galleries available online or at your local tattoo parlor, get a copy or printout of it and think about it for a couple of days. If after a few days, you are bored of the design or worse, can't stand to look at it anymore, then it's safe to assume that specific design is not for you.
