Free Tattoo Designs?
By Susan Olofsson
Do you really want a "free" tattoo design? Maybe. If you look through all of the free tattoo sites, you might be able to find a tattoo design that will suit your needs. There are SO many free tattoo design sites out there, that you could literally spend weeks searching through them all.
Generally, the free sites have tens of thousands of designs. Most are not organized in categories, and most do not give you the flexibility to change the scale of the design. And, I guarantee you will find the same cookie cutter designs on site after site. But if you are truly patient and willing to wade through all the designs you may find what you are looking for.
When you begin your search for the best tattoo design, there are a few important things to keep in mind. You want to find the best design that comes the closest to what you had in your head. You are going to spend a boatload of money on the actual tattoo, so you don't want to have any regrets later. After all, it is permanent.
So how do you find the best tattoo design? If you are looking for a simple basic design, you will probably have a pretty good chance of finding it on the "Free Tattoo" sites. If you are thinking of an intricate tribal tattoo, a Maori design, an awesome shoulder tattoo, a large back piece or something that is truly unique, you should really take your time and do all your research. Check out all the "free" sites. if you still can not find what you are looking for, tap some of your artistic friends to sketch a few designs for you. Also, go to your local tattoo shop and check out the designs on the wall and in their books. You should also check out other peoples ink to find a general idea of what you are looking for. Tweak it, change it, but don't copy it.
If you don't have any artistic friends, and really don't want the same tattoo as every other guy/girl walking down the street, check out some of the tattoo membership sites.
They do charge you a fee for joining, some as low as $10, some as high as $69. When you consider what you are going to pay for the tattoo itself, these sites are a bargain. They are lifetime memberships. The nice thing about the membership sites is that they always have fresh tattoo designs. These sites encourage artists to submit designs and if accepted the artist earns a fee. What a great way to get top tattoo designs! The sites are very selective about the designs they choose, so you have a pretty good chance of finding a unique, beautiful tattoo that you will gladly live with your entire life. Membership sites also give you the ability to change the size of the tattoo flash. You can manipulate it, print it and take it directly to your tattoo artist. Not sure where to find a great tattoo artist? The really good membership sites also give you a list of great tattoo artists by state. There are also members areas where you can explore other members ink and leave comments, upload your photos, and keep up with everything that is going on in the tattoo world. Most have free bonuses for joining.
Wherever you choose to get your tattoo design, make sure it is the absolute best you can afford. Wait if you have to. Getting a tattoo is not something you should jump into. Find the best design, find the best tattoo shop and artist, and you will be on your way to getting the best kick-ass tattoo that you will gladly live with your entire life.
So yes, you can get a free tattoo design but does it really make sense? You want something unique, wonderfully designed, something you will love to live with the rest of your life. You, for sure, do not want that big shoulder tattoo design to looks like it came out of a gumball machine.
Please pay special attention here. Give careful consideration to tattooing your significant others NAME on yourself. Sure, they are really important to you today, but what about tomorrow, next month, 15 years from now. Think long and hard. Maybe it is a better idea to have some kind of a "symbol" tattoo that is important to both of you. A name is very personal and Cover up work or removal is very expensive. The name thing did not work out so well for Angelina Jolie did it?
