What do tattoo artist services include?

A tattoo artist’s job is to permanently ink a design of your choosing onto your skin. Done well, this piece of art will stay with you for life – which is why you want to hire someone who knows their craft and preferably completed an apprenticeship in an established salon. 

Depending on your preference, a tattoo artist can create a design for you, you can choose from pre-designed templates or you can come up with your own design. If you want a name, quote or meaningful phrase, you’ll get a pick of fonts or handwriting styles to choose from. This is all done in a sterile environment. 

Complete design

Although it costs more to have a tattoo artist come up with an individual design for you, it allows you to have a professionally-designed tat that you’ll be proud of. They’ll work in consultation with you to get an idea of your preferences and styles, then come up with a design based on your input. 

Tattoo typography

Simple words and phrases are a popular choice of tattoo – from the classic ‘Mum’ to names of loved ones or inspirational quotes. Tattoo artists can either handwrite these on your skin or you can pick a font together. As you’ll no doubt have learnt from photo galleries, it’s vital to triple check your spelling and grammar before getting anything inked – especially for foreign phrases and characters.  

Tattoo coverup

Whether it’s the name of an ex or you’ve simply grown sick of an old tattoo, there comes a time when you might change your mind. While tattoo lasering is an option, you can often incorporate words or images into a new design that will give your skin a new lease of life. 

Henna tattoo

If you’re keen on decorating your skin but you’re not sure about the commitment of a tattoo, you may prefer to speak to a henna tattoo artist. Henna art originates from ancient Egypt and India and lasts for around two weeks.
