Quote tattoos represent an ideal choice for both women and men. Quotes can be very motivational, they can make us stronger, feel better and believe in ourselves or in something . Traditional tattoo designs are great, but they can’t be compared to the meaning quote tattoos have.

Why choose a quote tattoo?

You might wonder what makes quote tattoos so special. They are popular mostly for the the many options they offer, there are thousands of quotes on any theme you can possibly imagine: philosophy, life, love, religion, politics and the list goes on. With so many topics, finding a quote that suits you is a piece of cake! Through words it is easier to convey a message, than through symbols. Just think of how inspired or motivated you were the last time you came across a quote that really spoke to you. We are all inspired by great thoughts, that is why in most cases quote tattoos have a positive effect, they can really lift us up.  However, you have to make sure that you have found a quote that really suits you and that you could see every day for the rest of your life, because once it’s done you can’t just erase it!

Quote tattoo designs and things to consider before having a quote tattoo

If you have chosen your quote you are one step closer to getting it tattooed. Make sure that it is correctly spelled, you don’t want to notice a misspelling after it has been tattooed permanently on your body.
You might think that the design of a quote tattoo is not as complicated as that of a traditional tattoo. Think twice! In order to get such a tattoo beautifully done you will need some planning!
First of all, you have to pick the font’s style and the dimension as well as the location of your future quote tattoo.
In choosing the location it is of utmost importance to take the length of your quote into consideration, for example a quote of only a few words would look great on your wrist, but for a longer one you might want to consider a location like your back or sleeve.
For the quote tattoo’s font you must have readability in mind. Even if you might like a particular font design you must also think whether other people could read the quote or not. After all, it would be a little embarrassing if someone had to stare at your tattoo in order to figure out what it says. The letters’ size is again influenced by the location you choose for your tattoo and on how important you consider your quote.
Make sure that you express your wishes clearly, so that your tattoo artist would know what design to recommend.
