Choosing a tattoo design is a hard decision to make, but it's an important decision that should not be taken lightly as it's something that may be with you for life.
Step 1: Tattoo Meaning
Is the Tattoo designed to say something about your personality, a quality that you possess or an special interest. This would give the tattoo a meaning. Impulsive tattoos of a picture you like at the time will most likely lead to regret years later.
Step 2: Different Cultures
Could it be seen as offensive to others that could cause you problems when travelling or applying for certain jobs in the future?
Having the name of a partner tattooed on you is something to really think about. Relationships don't always last forever and any future partners may not appreciate seeing someone elses name branded on you. Some people end up with several different names on them!
Step 4: Timeless Design
Is the design the latest craze that will not be so great in years to come. Is it so popular that many people have the same thing or is it more unique and personal. Is it a design that you will feel happy with in 30,40 or even 50 years on.
