Creating a lettering tattoo is a unique and exciting way to express yourself. However, there are some things you should keep in mind to make your lettering tattoos the best they can be.
It Should Be Legible
Choosing the right font for your tattoo lettering will affect the entire feel of your design. The font should be legible and work with your personality. If you need to know which font will suit you best, talk to your tattoo artist or graphic designer.
Using a serif font is a good choice. They are designed with thick and thin lines to create a condensed look. Serifs help the letters stand out from the background. They work well for blocks of text and song lyrics.
Serif fonts are frequently used in poetry, song lyrics, and book passages. They’re also appropriate for tattoos with a feminine or feminine-style aesthetic. They are also suitable for tattoos that contain more than one word.
Choosing a cursive font for your tattoo can create a more feminine look. Cursive fonts can also make simple tattoos look more elegant.
One popular font for script tattoos is CAC Champagne. Its combination of calligraphy and cursive lettering makes it a versatile font that works well for a script.
It Should Be Outlined or Shadowed
Getting your lettering tattoo to stand out is no small feat. First, consider the positioning, font, and spacing of your letters. The right font and spacing can make a word look more like a poem. You should also consider the font size to ensure the letters are manageable.
The best way to accomplish this is to use a stencil or other guide for the lettering. This allows you to do the fine art of lining without tearing your hair out. You will need to clean your tattoo from time to time, though. However, you may only need to do this sometimes you line your letters.
A suitable stencil is also the best way to keep the ink contained. Some artists use green soap and sterile gauze to clean off their lines. Using a stencil also ensures that you are using the right colors. Considering your skin type before starting your design is also a good idea. Consider using a lighter shade of ink on the darker areas of your design.
The Script Should Be Simple To Read
Choosing the correct type of script to ink is a large part of the puzzle, but the art of the deal involves more than picking the correct fonts. One of the most important aspects of choosing the right type of font is selecting the right fonts for the right size of the script to ink. The best way to do this is to start with letter size and move up from there. If you choose to get ink on a body part where the ink is not in a place where you can see it, you may have to use a stencil or an outline method. The most important part of the process is ensuring that the ink can withstand the rigors of time.
