Tattoo artists are artists. If Leonardo Da Vinci was alive today, he may well have been trained in the art of tattooing… That may be a long shot, but it’s important to realize that there is immense skill and talent in being a good tattoo artist.
Like in any industry, there are varying degrees of ability amongst tattoo artists, and many have different skills. Some are excellent at the process of applying a tattoo – it is clear that some of the tattoos I have had inked onto my skin were inked on by people who enjoyed inflicting a little bit of pain(!).
Other tattoo artists are clearly very gifted in coming up with a custom tattoo design which is perfect for you. This is because they are able to understand your needs, ask the right questions and create something which is truly special and unique.
These are the sorts of people we should be looking for when we want a custom tattoo design for our lower back. Thinking about and choosing the design you want will take a lot of time and patience. However, so should deciding who you want to ink the tattoo onto your skin.
If you have friends who have been tattooed, you should ask them for any recommendations they have; even within the same tattoo salon, there will be different ranges of tattoo artists.
We have to remember that having a tattoo is a very personal experience, so it is fundamentally important that we are happy with the tattoo artist who is designing and applying the tattoo; not part of the process is in a vacuum, because the end result will remind you of all stages of the experience. And the end result is around for a long time!
