However when you post a job for a custom tattoo design online you will frequently have 5 or more artists all bidding to do the work for you. Having more artists means you are more likely to find a tattoo artists that better fits with the style of tattoo design that you are looking for. Further more as we all know when people compete for your business you get better quality at a lower price.
So when you go to your local shop and ask them to design a custom tattoo for you often are limited to only the two artists or so that work at that parlor. Sure this is okay but if you think about it only two artists is pretty limiting. Each tattoo artist has their own unique style it is after all. So you are limited to getting the look and feel of the tattoos artists that work in the shop.
It’s easy to make hundreds of tattoo designs using just few reference books . With 3-5 books you can make almost unlimited amount of interesting tattoo designs.
These are just a few ideas that you might consider. During all my years of designing and studying tattoos, I have never seen that kind of tattoos confided to anyone before.
For me I often feel stuck when I think of how permanent a tattoo is. I see a lot of cool designs that I like at the time but when I start thinking about the having it permanently done I start to change my mind and look for something else.
