10 Creative Tattoo Ideas
Learn about ten creative tattoo ideas to make your next tattoo one of a kind. Tattoos let you show your individuality up close and personal. Instead of choosing some flash from the tattoo artist's wall or portfolio, design your own tattoo or use these ideas for a creative tattoo.
- Monogram yourself. Use the idea of monogrammed towels and monogram your body. The three initials are used. The first name initial is on the left. The middle initial is on the right, and in the center, the last name initial is larger than the other two and sits in the middle of the monogram.
- Get a cat face tattoo. A simple tattoo of just a cat's ears, whiskers, and nose can be a creative yet minimalist tattoo. The tattoo artist will have an easy time of it.
- Get your doodles tattooed on you. If you're a doodler, consider using one of your masterpieces for a creative tattoo. You don't have to be a true artist to make truly great art. Whether you draw a stick person or a realistic nature scene, decide if this is something you can see yourself wearing.
- Get a tattoo of your favorite game. Do you love crossword puzzles or Sudoku? Make up one with words or numbers that tell your story. This creative tattoo will impress and be a true representation of you.
- Tattoo your favorite saying on your arm. For whatever reason--inspiration, encouragement, or simply for fun, having your favorite words on your body can do a body good. Make sure you get the words right so your motto will be something you want to have with you forever.
- Get wedding rings tattooed on your fingers. Okay, so you have to get married for this one. But if you're a lover of tattoos, consider designing your own wedding ring tattoo and get them done at or after the ceremony.
- Chronicle an important milestone. If you just graduated or got braces off or skydived, get a tattoo to remember the event. Sketch out a design of what you want to showcase about the milestone to give the tattoo artist an idea of what exactly is important to you.
- Select a design to replicate. Use a bandana or a beautiful wallpaper design to show the tattoo artist. Many objects have a creative look that can translate to a creative tattoo. Be prepared to give dimensions of how large you want the tattoo and what aspects of the design to include.
- Get a logo tattoo. Advertise your business in a tattoo. Logos are often great, creative works of art. Be a 24-hour walking billboard for your business by sporting your business's logo on your body.
- Make a stylized tattoo. Artists create stylized versions of real objects all the time. They look like the object but they are simplified and unique. Choose an object near and dear to your heart and get it stylized.
