Choosing a Zodiac Symbol Tattoo
Astrology is fun and has been popular for hundreds of years. Almost every major newspaper and magazine has a horoscope section. Now that tattoos are more popular and socially accepted than ever before in history, zodiac symbol tattoos are a fun design choice that will never go out of style.
Getting a tattoo of your zodiac sign is a smart choice, no matter if it is your first or your hundredth. One of the best aspects about using your zodiac sign, is that your birthday never changes. This means that your new tattoo will stay relevant no matter what else changes in your life. Body art of your zodiac sign is a personal and timeless symbol of who you are.
Getting a tattoo is a major life decision that shouldn't be taken lightly. They last for the rest of your life, so you want to make sure you choose a design that will never go out of style and that you will still love 10, 20, 30 or more years from now. You want to make sure that you choose a zodiac symbol tattoo design that you will personally love for the rest of your life. There are certain things you can do to make sure that your design is a work of art that will bring you years of enjoyment.
Don't just rush out to the nearest tattoo shop and pick a design off the wall that is only sort of like what you really want. Remember that your new zodiac symbol tattoo is going to be on your body forever, you want a design that you won't regret later. Take your time and shop around. There are a lot of great free tattoo gallery sites where you can see lots of different kinds of zodiac sign designs, to get an idea what style and type of tattoo you want. Free tattoo sites are great place to start getting ideas, but if you want body art that is really special and one of a kind, then I highly recommend getting a membership with one of the low cost membership only tattoo sites.
Why get a Membership?
The free tattoo sites are great for getting ideas, but most of these sites only show designs that thousands of people already have, so if you don't want the same tattoo as everyone else then a membership site is the way to go. Plus the tattoos on most of the free sites print out blurry, which makes it hard for the artist to transfer that design to you.
There are some fantastic membership sites out there, that cost only a few dollars to join and can save you a lifetime of heartache later. Joining an excellent tattoo site is kind of like hiring a professional to remodel your house, sure you could just wing it and hope for the best by doing it yourself, but it sure looks better in the long run if you hire the right person to do the job.
My personal favorite of the on line membership sites is Tattoo Me Now. This is one of the newer sites out there and they have definitely learned from other sites mistakes. They have a gigantic gallery of designs to choose from, a design gallery where you can combine multiple tattoos into one or create your own design, a members gallery where you can find inspiration from other members tats, a studio directory where you can find tattoo artists and shops in your area and see how they were rated by other members , a members forum and much more. A membership site is a great place to get all the info you need to make sure you get a zodiac symbol design that you will love forever.
Choosing the Right Tattoo Artist & Shop
To make sure you get body art that you will love, take your time and find the right artist and the right shop for your new zodiac symbol tattoo. Shop around and find an artist that has a personal style that matches the style of tattoo you want. Every legitimate body artist has a portfolio of photos of tattoos they have done in the past. Ask potential artists to show you their portfolio. If that artist specializes in a different tattoo style than what you are looking for, ask them to recommend a artist that specializes in the style you want. Most artists want you to have a tattoo you will love and don't mind referring you to a fellow artist.
Only get a tattoo at a shop that is licensed and clean. Make sure that the shop you choose follows safety and sanitary procedures.
A zodiac tattoo can be a work of body art that will bring you years of enjoyment. Take your time and find a design that is perfect for you, then you will love your new body art forever.
