Think twice before getting a particular tattoo design
Do not just decide at the moment that you want a particular tattoo. Take the time to think whether the design or writing you have chosen will look good in the future as well. Maybe you are in high school and you get a tattoo that reflects your age, behaviour or attitude, it surely will not look as attractive as it does now when you start your professional or married life. Be sure to choose a design that will look meaningful in the years to come.
Understand your taste and attitude
Understanding your taste and attitude will help you determine what kind of a tattoo will suit you best. Getting a tattoo according to your taste does not mean that you should get one that will turn everyone off except you but you have to get one that others can appreciate as well. If you are religious and your social circle is a bit conservative, having a bold tattoo might not make a good impression.
Have a tattoo expert make a custom design for you
Before you decide on a particular tattoo, you had better get a tattoo expert to make a custom design for you. It will make it easy for you to assess if you should get it permanently. Once the tattoo expert has drawn up a design for you, get a printout of it to show your friends or relatives. If the printout version does not work and you are still confused as to what to do about it, you can use henna to get a temporary tattoo to see how it looks against your skin.
