Thank you for this article. How cool would a revanche bedeutung shirt look if instead of their bold logo atop a killer illustration, it was line after line of boring type face describing the band members, their instruments and influences, their hopes and dreams and fears? There are some Samoan designs and a lot of Tahitian designs. So what if it's not perfectly straight. No one irland schweden statistik their bedroom with Beste Spielothek in Brokdorfer Hafen finden notes. And we get requests like this every day. They are all fucking ugly, and even worst than those depicted in the post. This tattoo looks fabulous when placed on the back or on the legs depending on the tattoo size that you would wish to have.
Agreed on your thoughts of words having full ability to be subjective. Anyone that thinks otherwise must not read poetry.
There are people with visual processing learning disabilities that find visual art overstimulating and ugly most of the time.
Not all brains work the same. Tattoo artist comparing himself to useful careers like a mechanic or doctor is pure egotism. His words come off harsh and unrefined.
I find people who slam the humanities and English suck at them. I agree and disagree! Some of those are nice,at least from a client stand point.
Some cluttered and illegible! Not all tattoos are to show off some picture, they have meaning. They are meant to be seen by someone close and personal.
Text can be an ode to someone when a picture is not suitable. On the other hand, I think people need to be more picky about where and what kind of text they choose.
I could see how a tattoo artist would not want to tattoo a bunch of boring text. No challenge there for sure! Because it's important, right?
The more it means to you, the more attractive it should be visually, the better planned artistically, the bigger, the more elaborate and bold it ought to be.
When people tell me something is deeply meaningful to them but want ten ideas packed into a square inch of skin, it sounds like they're lying.
If it was so important and meaningful, surely they would put more time, space, and effort into it than that, and give each concept plenty of space to stand on its own?
Just because an image is deeply meaningful doesn't mean that it needs to be large, bold, eye-catching, or obvious. I have a very meaningful tattoo that I imagined and my sister designed, but it is small, discreet, and in soft color.
I deliberately designed it and placed it so that no one would see it unless I wanted them to. People have to be close enough to me emotionally for me to share this physical thing.
It means a lot to me, but it is definitely not to be noticed or seen by everyone. Dummmunkee, Bovine University, and Lizzardskills - I agree with you entirely.
Text tattoos should still have the same level of care put into them with regards to making them aesthetically pleasing through design and composition while still taking into consideration the vision of the client.
And from a technical perspective, I would TOTALLY want to know if in a few years down the road, all the letters were going to bleed into each other, or the tattoo may not look exactly like it does on paper, etc.
These are things that the general public wouldn't know and for things like that along with their artistic skills of course , the expertise of the artist is extremely valuable.
On the very long list of reasons why they mention that they're turning down a bunch of tattoo requests, were also a ton of reasons that were personal and opinion based.
Where I disagreed was with comments about how text is not subjective in the way that images are and how they don't have the same potential to be timeless and to change with the person over time.
If it was meant to be personal, then the client wanting to read it is the only thing that matters. And not everyone is going to care about the fact that they take up a lot of space and that they may or may not interfere with future tattoos.
These are all completely personal choices, and I would hate to think that people would get turned away from getting a text tattoo that was important to them by an artist who's work they really like because of reasons that go way beyond the technical aspect of it.
While I can agree that text tattoos might not be as exciting and challenging for a tattoo artist to do, I would hope that they got into an industry that's still customer service based because they care about the experience that they're providing for their clients, and I think that part of that is learning the reason behind the tattoo.
Through being tattooed and talking to artists and through having friends who are tattoo artists, I hear that they often get to hear some amazing stories from their clients through talking about their tattoos.
I hear what you are saying, but the tattoo artist also has the right to their opinion too. It's no different than if they don't do flash, or hate doing roses, or anything else.
They don't HAVE to do what the client wants. The guy who did mine only did custom work, and he had a small shop in the art district of Chicago.
It was on the 2nd floor, so you had to know where to find it. When he was coloring mine in, a couple of young dudes strolled in They kind of shuffled out.
He wasn't exaggerating either - he only did work by appointment and he had plenty of work to do. I hope he's still doing that well and can be as picky about his clients as he wants to be.
But I understand it might not be like that for all artists. Sometimes I guess you have to pay the bills. It's the instant it's on skin it will NOT look like it does on paper.
You go to a professional to get professional advice and work. Not to hire out a photocopier to xerox some shit onto you on demand.
I find my ethics with the tattoos I do varies with how broke I am at the time. You nailed it, simply nailed it. Just like the tribal bands of the 90's Taz of the 80's What many of you fail to consider and what respectable tattoo artists can't help but consider is that the artist has a portfolio and a reputation to think about.
If he agrees to do your tattoo even though he knows it will look terrible in a few years if it doesn't look terrible immediately for the reasons clearly enumerated by the author but you think it looks amazing, odds are you're going to show it off, and someone is going to ask who inked you.
Now his name is attached to that piece forever, whether he wants it there or not. There are surgeons who refuse to do procedures because there is too much risk involved and it will reflect poorly on them to have made such a bad judgment call when they knew going into it what the likely outcome was; generally, a patient's insistence will not change the surgeon's mind.
This is no different. A visual artist who works professionally does so knowing that others will judge him or her by the quality of their work, not the desires of the "canvas".
Actually, it's pretty different. Tattoo artist and surgeon. This comment has been removed by the author. Not so different, actually. Plastic surgery is only semi-reversible--probably even less reversible than tattoos.
If you're requesting a look that the professional doesn't want to be associated with, then it's their right to refuse.
Take Michael Jackson for example. Every time he got another nose job the risk of complications and an undesirable result went up.
He was informed and willing to risk his nose collapsing, but not every surgeon would be willing to risk their reputation on it.
In fact, I doubt that anyone would have if he hadn't had the money to pay handsomely and the fame for people to realize it wasn't surgeon error. Same with tattoos the artist doesn't think will widely appeal.
For example, my hubby is just getting to the point of tattooing people, and the first tattoo he was asked to do will probably risk his career if people just look at the photo and don't know that the client ASKED him to make it look that way.
Shaky lines, varying letter size, everything people fear that apprentices will do. But the client wanted it to look like something done with a homemade machine in unskilled hands, they just wanted it safely.
He did the tattoo, but the photo isn't in his portfolio. I wasn't sure it was going to be worth it at first.
The ext ra work I had to put into it was insane but I am loving the finished product. I'm happy everyone else seems to love it too. Beauty and art are subjective, yet people continue on through the ages claiming they know best as 'experts'.
Foolhardy and regrettable, indeed. People absolutely buy leggings for that exact reason! Thank you for this article. Text tattoos look so stupid especially when it's a huge honking paragraph.
Obviously good tattooists know how to make images sit best, move well, fit the body perfectly - same can apply to typographical pieces too.
All imagery compromises to some degree when applied to skin, not just type. You could just as easily argue that flags are a poor way to display something, cause they blow in the wind and aren't clear enough, and they fade in the sun and get shit on by seagulls.
The movement of the type on skin is only negative in -your- opinion. I think large scale, black, no shading, no colours, is the BEST thing if we're talking longevity and clarity.
All these nikko photo reproductions are gonna be blobs when ugh tribals and large type is still clear. Not disagreeing that 'just breathe Fucking emo rib poetry bullshit.
If it's more than two lines of text, it belongs on paper. Hey Guys, can anybody of you tell me the full text of the "Fear God Tattoo"?
Or give me a hint where can I find it ;- thx. From someone in the final design stages of four text tattoos, thank you for writing such a well-connected article.
Without the photos to accompany them, many of your points would have been lost. After reading I still plan on getting all four, and with such great "what not to do" pictures I've chosen a different font for the two on my arms I want legible at a distance in order to tie into the back piece they'll accompany.
As for the other two, I feel no need to ask anyone else to read them. I agree that having to stop and read somebody's attempt at expression is annoying, especially when typography, body shape and poor use of negative space get in the way.
Everything else equal, that Italian tattoo would be legible if the letters were filled in! The man with the wall of text under "Fear God" clearly doesn't intend people to read his pecs as he jogs by.
There's a lot of thought and artistic skill in all his ink! Strangers get to read "Fear God. That font and placement is perfect for his lover to read laying next to him, and there's nothing wrong with that.
You're too quick to indict all text tattoos in the concern over "sidewalk" legibility--we all know more factors go into good tattoos.
I mean, honestly, the written word's subjectivity, its proclivity to interpretation, its malleability-- that's why we still make people study words in school; why we ask people to read Homer and Shakespeare and Woolf; why scores of fourteen-year-olds scratch their private agonies onto paper or into the keyboard as both pictures and words, doodles and "emo poetry;" why audiences can be equally enthralled by a novel and a jazz concert, museum collection, or slam poetry reading.
To privilege visual art over verbal is to put all forms of artistic expression into some kind of completely unwarrranted Gladiator-style competition, while ignoring the fact that many kinds of art can all serve the same expressive need.
Funny that you should remember so many pieces of your English teachers' advice yet forget the essence of the written word.
Having said that, I'm in no way defending the textual atrocities I see all too often. My favorite is a forearm tattoo that reads "What doesn't kill you make's you stronger.
As a typographer, I can tell you Helevetica is consideres old-fashioned and out of voque. Text can be used to create stunning visuals, but again it is being done on flat surface or packaging not people.
I like small amounts of text. If I am going to endure hours of needle pin pricks, I want an amazing image. While I don't agree with everything the author says here, I do think he has a valid point.
Not everyone that gets a tattoo wants it to display artwork. Yeah, a three-year-old drew it. But to me, that's a hundred times more meaningful than the skull you have tattooed on your arm that is the perfect example of a talented artist and a well-done drawing.
If you have legitimate concerns as an artist, such as the lettering is too small, then bring that up. As a graphic designer, I know that text can look fantastic, no matter what you put it on.
The fact that you claim that text is meant to go on a flat surface, blah blah blah, is ridiculous. That's a curved surface and those are some of the most memorable logos that exist.
Sure, the dictionary definition will always be the same, but what those words mean to YOU can very easily change. I have a text tattoo on my ribs.
It's two simple words, but it looks fantastic and the meaning is constantly evolving to me. I didn't get my tattoos, and won't get any future ones, to show off.
They're not for people to ogle and be inspired by, they're for me. They have a personal meaning, and they're not meant to leave room for expansion because I am not a fan of larger tattoos on myself.
If you want to get them, kudos to you. But that's not MY personal choice and your opinion on text tattoos doesn't mean a damn thing to me because there's not a lot of professionalism in it.
So get off your high horse and stop judging people for wanting text on their bodies. Just because you wouldn't do it doesn't make you the be all, end all of opinions.
While I see your point And I assume all my tattoos and loves them, even if other people don't like them.
A beautiful font is art in and of itself. Because, dude, by dismissing all of it, you're missing out! Tattoos make you stand out of crowd..
Thanks for this nice pictures on Sun Tattoos. I really appreciate your work, keep it up. Totally get what you are saying about readability.
Well thought out and well said. Speaking of which, I am not a tattoo artist, but I am trained in paper layout and design including Websites.
Black background with white text is the number one "no-no" for readability on the Web. Please rethink that element of your blog.
Just going to go wipe the blood from my eyes now. In case if you have faced these writing issues, it could be a sound practice to use professional essay writing help.
Make an essay plan as well on how you aim to accomplish each of the activities related to your essay writing. So who is the expert on me?
Now getting an entire paragraph is a little much, but that's still none of your "expert" business. And ya know what?
Half of your points are so not valid. And I take insult to the fact you think that typography isn't an art in itself and that it "mumbles".
Maybe because I practice written typography and caligraphy I find that it's a pretty detailed fucking ART but that's just me.
And like another person said, you all get paid so MUCH for what you do. Also some of the ones in your post look good. Cry about it omg. What a great blog!
These are some great works of art and they have some great detail. The same applies precisely to "painting" and "tatooing". Painting excuse the pun this as a black and white issue is nonsense.
I even dare to pose the hypothesis that the percentage of shitty text-tattoos is not much, if at all, higher than that of crap picture-based tattoos.
It's the dose that makes the poison, not the substance. I agree with everyone that has said that is is simply a matter of personal taste. I personally don't like large, detailed and shaded pictures as tattoos.
I like black ink, symbols, fonts, black and white images with clean lines, some tribals. If I am in the minority with that, thats okay.
I don't get tattoos for others. They are for me. I also think sentences can be just as symmetrical as an image depending on placement.
I don't see the difference between a warped image on a curved body vs. Text can be so meaningful to people, that is why I am planning to get two lines on my underarm.
Many have a favorite quote or poem, and I happen to have identified with one passage of the anglo saxon rune poem for years.
It has been my motto for surviving disease and I can not express the same with an image. You could just admit you're a shit tattoo artist instead of dissing text tattoos.
Although decent lettering i admit is rare. Congratulations guys, quality information you have given!!! The funny thing is, most of the text tattoos in the pictures look good to me.
Taste is a very personal thing I got "Scripto Ergo Sum" I write therefore I am being written by a feather pen tattooed on my left upper arm because of a promise I made to myself 10 years earlier that, one day, writing would pay all my bills.
Now it does, and my tattoo serves as a permanent reminder of how, after working my ass off to put myself through school and a host of other hurdles, I am what I wanted to be when I grow up.
I can understand your disdain for lettering tattoos as a visual artist, but not everyone is visually based. Some are language lovers, and believe it or not, that does in fact include a love of typography and font.
There's opinion, judgement and elitism. I generally disregard the latter two. Yay for commenting on old articles! I just felt like I needed to second this point.
I think many of these "tattoo guru" guys aren't seeing past their bias. Of course they're visually-oriented people; they're primarily graphic artists.
If you're proverbially left-brained, like me, words are more emotional and evocative than images. You may not get it, but that doesn't mean it's not true.
A clever word choice or a well-designed phrase makes me happier than your "representative" visual depiction ever could.
Words stay with me forever. I enjoy them, and their implications, and I want them on my body. And there are individuals out there who are even more different from the author in preference than I am.
To some people, god help them, numbers are emotional like that. You should see my friend's husband get excited about math. I don't fucking get it, but I don't think he's wrong.
And I don't get indignant that he doesn't value the same things I do aesthetically. Just food for thought. Or, if that phrase doesn't move you, you can picture a taco inside of a head if it helps: Haha, you stepped on some people's pride here I completely agree with everything you wrote.
There are amazing artists, like Henry Lewis, Big Meas, Norm WillRise that do fantastic calligraphy and lettering tattoos, tho, but are all visually striking and just nice to look at - not twenty rows of small letters.
It still amazes me how you give your sincere opinion, you take time to write all this stuff down because you CARE and you see a lot of bad tattoo decisions everyday Not because you have nothing better to do.
But still there are people saying that your opinion sux, because well, why not. I could be wrong, but that "my name is Kelly" one seems to be so whoever she is having sex with will remember her name.
One for when they're behind, one for when she's giving head. And the female sex never got classier than that. Has anything ever bothered you in life?

Thanks for posting this informative article. Battery Led Picture Light. This article is weird. As a writer and enjoyer of typography, I find a lot of your points about text content and style to be off-base.

It is not uncommon to find someone with a Hebrew phrase tattoo that reads entirely different from what they think it means. The anchor tattoo is a popular Hebrew tattoo that draws its inspiration from the book of Hebrews in the Bible.
The anchor is used as a sign of faith in Christianity and the biblical teachings. Although some people like t o draw the anchor alone, it is often combined with other tattoos to enhance its appearance.
For example, the anchor is combined with a Hebrew phrase below it. Other variations of this tattoo include the use of flowers and the infinity sign.
The phrase Hebrew 6: The Hamsa or the hand of Miriam is a popular Hebrew symbol that is used to protect against evil. The Hamsa is believed to ward of any evil forces or people who have evil intentions against you.
This Hand of Fatima image is also sometimes combined with fish images that are a symbol of good luck or with a Hebrew prayer.
The Hamsa can also be given a floral touch to make it look more feminine. This tattoo looks fabulous when placed on the back or on the legs depending on the tattoo size that you would wish to have.
The Kabbalah or the 72 words for God are another popular Hebrew tattoo. There are many celebrities with this popular type of tattoo, but perhaps the most famous one is Britney Spears.
For this tattoo, you can get any one of the 72 word or get a combination of a few of them. However, it is important to know that each one of the words has its own meaning, and so you should make sure that you understand what your choice of word means or symbolizes.
In this tattoo, different characters are drawn but when combined they should form one of the 72 Kabbalistic words for God.My Little Darlings by Harmoniii. Zu den Mystic Mirror Casinos.
