1. Tattoo Script – Check your spelling

Tip number one, is to check, check and recheck your spelling. And then once you’ve finished checking, you can give it someone else to check to check and they can check, check, recheck and check it again. And then once the tattoo artist has drawn it up, check and the recheck spelling. And then once you’ve finished checking the spelling, you can check the grammar and if the sentence structure actually makes sense.

If you don’t do that, you’re going to look like an uneducated buffoon and you’re going to have to live with that. So, it’s your own freaking fault, if you f*&k that up.

2. Tattoo fonts – Make sure that it is legible

Next important thing to take into consideration is the font. The font sets the mood for the whole tattoos, so make sure that you can find the right message with the style of font that you choose. On the subject of tattoo fonts, you still make sure that it is legible. Not necessary and it’s not life-or-death thing but if you want people to actually be able to read it, it has to be legible.

“…make sure that this style of writing does it make look like it accidentally says something else.”

3. Tattoo script blurring over time

Although, thin writing is really delicate, and beautiful, and dainty, and girly, no matter how well you look after it, within a few years it is going to blur a little bit and it is going to bleed. So, if you have really thin writing, that’s really close together (like the spacing between the letters), it’s going to bleed together and it’s going to look like a blurry mess.

You don’t have to sacrifice wanting thin writing, you just have to get them spaced enough. So, when it does bleed, you have compensation space to make sure that it still looks like it says something.

4. Tattoo script quotes – Understand the actual meaning and know where it comes from

If you are quoting something or someone, whether that’ll be poetry, or song lyrics, or historical speech, or a passage from a religious text, make sure you actually understand the actual meaning of the actual text. Too many times I have seen people getting something tattooed because someone in a movie said it, and it sounded really amazing and then they don’t actually know what it means.

Although, it still has meaning to them, to everyone else who actually knows where it comes from. It’s going to mean something probably completely different. So, if you’re unsure just google it and make sure it’s a reliable source of where it actually came from. And make sure that you completely understand it before doing it. Just make sure that you know, if you quote in Shakespeare or “10 Things I Hate About You”.

5. Tattoo scripts in another language

And lastly my most favorite point, if you’re getting something in another language, make sure that it’s translated properly.

“…try your best to find someone you can trust”

Although, Google Translate is a really good tool for just getting a quick translation, chances it’s not going to say exactly what you want it to say. So, try your best to find someone you can trust in order to translate it for you properly. So, the sentence structure, the grammar, and the spelling – all still makes sense in the other language.
