First Tattoo Ideas that Never Go Wrong



I still remember the time when I was planning my first tattoo a couple of years ago. It took me more than two months to come to a final decision for what design to pick. It wasn’t a straight forward decision at all!

When I first started having the thought of selecting a tattoo for myself, ideas for how to create a unique design ran wild in my mind. I have been searching all over the place looking for a decent and meaningful tattoo.

In actual fact, I think I was lucky enough to have made a right decision on my first tattoo design. Sadly, there are too many people who have gotten their first inks are not really happy afterwards for what they have chosen.

So, how did I do it right?

Many years ago before the internet was widely available, the primary tattoo resource was to seek advice from the artists for ideas and designs base on the specific needs. In my

case, I’ve spent many days and nights pondering what I really wanted the tattoo to represent for me while its aesthetic beauty was always kept as my top priority.

I was fully aware that a tattoo would speak my styles. Knowing that it would also be a permanent beauty marking, I’ve spent hours and hours checking out different designs, reviewing artworks through various magazines and books before setting foot to the studio.

Today, with so many available resources, picking a design has been a simplified process. Everyone can literally pick an art work at home before going for inking. If you engage

yourself with a membership gallery, you can pre-select your perfect design beforehand and have a lot of choices.

Given below are a few options for your consideration. All these tattoos are quite pretty with mostly positive meanings. You can’t be wrong if you make use of these ideas.





1.    Flowers art works are good for both the men and women. There are almost unlimited types of flowers with different shape and color to consider. The botanists have registered over 10,000 species of flowering plants in this world, and more than a hundred of them have made it to the human body as tattoos. Some of the popular flowers for inking are hibiscus, rose, lily, daisy and lotus.

2.    Customize your Zodiac image, or glyph, as your tattoo. The good thing about inking your birth sign is that it is a representation of your unique personality. The size is often small and it will not be outdated. It is good for those who want to experience inking the very first time.

3.    A group of stars such as shooting stars with a streak of flame are some of the most simple and popular designs to think about.

Get Inspired by an Ancient Art tattoo

The art and culture of tattooing has been practiced in several traditions around the world for many centuries. Today, tattoo is often used as a body decor, but in the past it served many other purposes. For example, the indigenous people living in the Pacific islands worn tattoos to mark their ancestry, social status and ranking in a tribe. Bikers or members of the secret societies sported tattoo as the affiliation and the sign of faithfulness to a particular group. Sailors at open sea in the old days believed that their nautical star symbols could protect and guide them home safely.

Over the years, tattoo has also been used as a symbol of religion, amulet, protection, emblem of bravery, symbol of punishment due to the committed sin and guilt, promise of love, tribute and remembrance of someone or an important experience of life. There is always a purpose and message behind each body mark.

If you are looking for an ancient art tattoo, there are just too many astonishing choices to consider. The oldest form of tattoo can be traced back as early as 4,000 BC from the body of the mummies.





So, what are the popular ancient artworks that you can consider? Some of the early designs can be anything religious and cultural, from Celtic knots to Egyptian arts and Hieroglyphs, from Maori curves and lines to Japanese Kanji, from Native American arts to African Adinkra symbols. All these artworks are regularly picked by tattoo enthusiasts to intertwine with other elements, trying to form a unique design so to adorn their body and to quote an important statement for them.

Whether it is a large piece of design customized for the full back, or just a roll of ancient Egyptian lettering wrapping over the arm, the creativity of the ancient design can run wild. If you are interested in any ancient tribal symbol, try to avoid picking a design that incorporates the unique attributes of a tribe. You can discuss this with your artist, or do some research on the internet to screen out those features. Make sure you go through many quality designs before you come to a final decision.
