While people collect tattoos for a variety of reasons, it’s always meaningful when a deeper connection is connected to the piece.
This is an excellent time to reflect on the big stories & happenings in your life that you wish to record with your tattoos! During the Winter months, tattoo artists typically have a bit more time open in their schedules and are happy to get started on these large undertakings.
“What’s the story?” Horiyume Tattoo Adam will ask, not only to guide the customer through the process but to see the entire picture and creative direction in his mind’s eye prior to the undertaking. The more you share with your artist, the better they can assist with helping you get a truly one of a kind, amazing work of art.
“Your artist is a trained professional who knows what works and what doesn’t.”
Just like you’d ask a doctor for medical advice, ask your tattoo artist for tattoo advice. They can tell you about tattoo placement so that it flows nicely with your body, which is a living, breathing, MOVING canvas. That roaring lion by your elbow might look good when your arm is bent but it’s not going to work when you’re moving your arm.
“You want the tattoo to look good no matter what, and to flow with your movements.”
Trust your tattoo artist for any tattoo, especially when telling the important stories with these larger pieces. You won’t regret it!
