The next most important thing after you have decided on a script or name is the fonts for your tattoos.
Texts from quotes, songs, poems or baby name tattoos have never been out of trend in the world of tattoos. They are always among the favored and timeless choices of both younger and matured men and women.
In addition to readability, fonts for tattoos should create a statement in itself both artistically and aesthetically. They should be appealing simply because these are meaningful art pieces carved on the flesh that the wearer wants to carry for the rest of his or her life.
Script tattoos should be carefully chosen, it usually takes time to decide on them. And choosing which font to use is just as important to the wearer to be able to display what he desires to express.
There are actually tons of font styles available for different typefaces. But choosing a single style of font with distinguishable characters is an ideal thing to keep in mind. The weight, the width and the size are among the basic characteristics to consider when choosing a font style for your tattoos.
The weight refers to the thickness of the character outlines and you can either decide to go for medium, extra bold or the super black weight to make the text more captivating. Your decision of the weight should also be related to the height of the characters.
The width is also something to remember in relation to your tattoo location. You have three choices when it comes to the width, you can go for the narrow or wide and expanded characters if you’re putting your ink on the part where there is more skin.
The size of the characters is another factor that really matters when you want to flaunt it and make it more visible. Again, the location should also be considered when deciding on the size of the characters.
Each font style has its own characteristics. To convey something what you want to express, you need to consider the characteristics of your chosen font style. For example, if you want to convey a medieval meaning, you may want to consider choosing an Old English font and choose the relevant characteristics with consideration to the part of the body where the tattoo should be placed.
