Husband and Wife Tattoos

Perhaps you just tied the knot, or you’re looking for something special and out of the box way to celebrate an upcoming anniversary. Tattoos are a wonderful way to commemorate any special event, but finding one that’s just right for you and your spouse is sometimes challenging. Here’s a list of unique tattoos you can get with your partner to celebrate!

Anniversary date

It’s easy enough to conceal a small tattoo that bears your anniversary date on it. You can go stylistic and use Roman numerals, tally marks, or simply do Arabic numerals. These can go just about anywhere, from on your fingers, to behind the neck, on the wrist, or even on the side of the hand as a nearby reminder of the one you love.

Rings

Are you in love with the metal bands bonding you with your spouse? Get matching tattoos depicting your rings linked together, or perhaps tattoo a small band around your ring finger. The linked rings could be an adorable rib cage or collarbone nod to your love for your spouse, perfect if you want to match them.

Skylines

Have you considered the skyline of where you met your love? Or perhaps, the wedding venue had a beautiful piece of scenery you truly enjoyed. A simple line tattoo is a beautiful testament to any location significant to the both of you.

Initials

This selection has a diverse selection that allows you to go as bold or subtle as you desire. You can go for the obvious and simply get each other’s tattoos anywhere from right above each other’s hearts, on the ribcage, or even on the wrist. If something more subtle and potentially even more beautiful than simple tattoos, select something like flowers that have matching initials. For example, the initials RMS could be matched with the flowers rose, marigold, and sunflower for a bright, vibrant salute to your marriage.

Tips to Make Your First Tattoo Experience a Pleasant One (Part Two)

First Tattoo Experience (Part Two)  Getting your first tattoo is a complete experience and one that you should enjoy. Yes, it’s ok to be a little nervous, but this is a story you’ll tell and remember for a long time. You should enjoy it despite your nerves and the pain. A great way to do that is to make sure you’re ready, that you’re prepared. Below you’ll find a list of tips to make your first tattoo experience a pleasant one.

Consider Placement

You might want to choose a smaller design or a more discreet area for your first tattoo. Dip your toes in the water instead of cannonballing in. Of course, the choice is yours. But, it’s a big decision and something you’ll have to live with every day so you might want to avoid areas like your hands or neck for your first time. Plus, you’ll want to consider which areas are the most and least painful. It’s always nice to tattoo an area that causes less pain to ease yourself into the tattooing experience.

Don’t be Cheap

Tattoos are expensive for a reason. It takes a lot of time and ink to create these works of art. Plus, it’s a lifetime masterpiece on your skin. Good tattoos won’t come cheap, but they’re worth the money. This isn’t the time to “bargain hunt.” If you do, you’ll likely end up with a “tattoo fail” that will cost you more to remove it than a great tattoo would have cost you in the beginning. So, focus more on what’s really important like the artist’s skill and experience, and the shop’s health standards. Those are far more important than price.

Wear Comfortable Clothes

The tattoo artist will need access to the area you wish to have tattooed, so make sure you’re not wearing something that makes reaching the area difficult. Plus, depending on the intricacy and size of the tattoo, you might spend several hours sitting in one place, so make sure you wear comfortable clothes. Wearing loose clothes is always beneficial because you won’t wind up putting pressure on your newly tattooed, and sensitive, skin.

If you follow these tips your first tattoo experience will go a lot smoother and you can actually enjoy it. So, take a moment to look over the list and make sure you’re ready. If you are, please don’t hesitate to contact us. We would love to be part of your experience.

Make Your First Tattoo Experience a Pleasant One (Part One)

First Tattoo Experience (Part One) – Tattoos are truly works of art. They’re a way to express yourself. They give the world a glimpse into who you are, what you think is beautiful, and the things you’re passionate about. Whether you’re getting a meaningful tattoo or an intricate design you think is truly stunning, you’re adding art and beauty to your body. Still, no matter how great your first tattoo is, you still might feel a little nervous. Don’t worry, that’s to be expected. Below you’ll find a few tips to make your first tattoo experience a pleasant one.

Don’t be in a Rush

You want your tattoo to turn out exactly the way you imagined it. In order for the tattoo artist to accomplish this, they’ve got to design it perfectly, and then position the sketch onto your body with precise detail. This process alone can take some time. Don’t rush it. You want your tattoo artist to take their time and get every detail right. This is permanent after all. Don’t be afraid to communicate your thoughts and desires during this process. It’s your tattoo, you should have a voice in how it turns out.

Come Prepared

If you know exactly what you want, you’ll need to bring a clear, detailed picture of the tattoo you desire. It shouldn’t be too small or grainy. If you want to mix two tattoo designs, you should be able to clearly mark what details you want from each, in a clear concise way.

Don’t be Shy

Don’t be afraid to ask questions. Now’s not the time to clam up and keep your thoughts to yourself. Tattoo artists are used to first-timers, so you certainly won’t be the first one flooding them with questions. They want your experience to go smoothly and satisfactorily, so they’d prefer you ask your questions and feel comfortable rather than stay silent and regret it later. A good artist will always take the time to explain the answers to your questions and make sure you’re completely comfortable before continuing on.

First Timers Guide to Tattoos.  It is finally that time, after some long and hard thought, to get your first tattoo. This is a very big and exciting commitment, but it may be a tad bit intimidating initially. If you are considering finally jumping in with both feet, it will be a tremendous benefit to:

Know What to Expect

  • You may have questions and concerns, which is completely normal; if you do have hesitations, communicate that to your artist, they are there to help you feel comfortable. This is their job as much as it is their job to bring your ideas to life. Tattoo artists are creating a piece that is personal to you, do not be shy about voicing any apprehension you are feeling prior to your appointment. You may worry that it will hurt, or your explanation of the piece you want is not coming across in the right way. An artist will not sugar coat this, a needle is involved for an extended period of time and you will feel some discomfort, but this is typical. Just remember, many others have made it through a tattoo session, you can too! As far as transferring your idea from your head to your artists, sometimes they are dead on and other times it may not be exactly what you are looking for. Communication is key; let them know if you would like to make some changes, this is your body and you are the one leaving with this artwork. You will not hurt their feelings if you would like something tweaked before your appointment begins.

Know Your Artists Strong Suits

  • Here we go again with communication, by now you may thinking you are working on a relationship, which by the end of your first tattoo, could absolutely be possible. It is pretty common for you to fall in love with the work and service you have received, while simultaneously falling in love with the person who helped create your masterpiece. You will most likely be back, so build a rapport and exchange ideas. It’s okay to ask your tattoo artist about their niche in the tattoo world and ask to see prior work or a portfolio.

Know Your Financial Obligation

  • If you are bargain hunting for your new artwork, it probably wont end well. Your tattoo artist is creating a piece that is special and unique to you, so expect to drop some money on that. Most artists will charge by the hour, it is good to discuss this before you get started, so the cost will not come as a surprise to you.

Remember, this is a big commitment, it is good to be prepared and satisfied with what you will be receiving. Contact us, we will be happy to welcome you to the world of body art.
