Thinking of getting a tattoo? Already have tattoos? Want to know how to get rid of your ill-advised tattoo? There are a lot of tattoo websites out there where you can get all kinds of information about best tattoo practices, how to find the tattoo artist best suited to your tattoo want and your temperament, even guidelines on what a particular tattoo means. It might get confusing. Fear not. Just go to these sites, and you’ll be fine.
The self-proclaimed “world’s leading tattoo site” is, in fact, pretty robust. Tattoo Johnny supplies tattoo artwork to many tattoo studios all over the globe, and they cater to individuals who want an online resource for all their tattoo needs and questions. One of the cool things they sell is their Tattoo Test Drive – a kit that allows you to print out your design and transfer it onto your skin so you can see what it will look like. That takes a lot of the guesswork out of choosing a tattoo, for sure.
This is a different type of site where actual tattoo artists can upload pictures of their work. It’s a tattoo artist community that is visible to the general public. It’s a great site if you want to look at some cool actual tattoos for inspiration, and if you want, you can seek out the tattoo artist who posted it to actually do your ink. Pretty sweet.
Like many other tattoo sites, this one has an option to choose a design to buy. Then they email you with a jpg. That’s not as good of a deal as other sites that give you the image for free, but these tattoo designers have to make a buck somehow, right? This site has an interesting forum for tattoo professionals and aficionados, and that’s neat to read. The site’s a little wonky in that the menu looks directory-ish, but it is a good resource nonetheless.
The appeal of this site lies in voicing your opinion. People post their tattoos (either ones they’ve gotten or ones they’ve put on someone else) and you can rank it from bad (1 crown) to good (5 crowns). It gives you a good idea of what people are putting on their bodies, and it is definitely good for a laugh every now and then.
This website is designed as a source to tattoo artists and conventioners. It is also a great resource to find tattoo artists and studios, as it has a fairly comprehensive directory. It shares tattoo news too, but the main draw is the network. If you’re a tattoo artist or if you own a tattoo studio you’ll want to be linked to this website.
This is another site where you can purchase your tattoo design. The thing that makes it different from others is that it is super-easy to navigate. You pay for your design, then download the line art stencil that you can take or send to your tattoo artist. These guys take submissions from all over, so the selection is decent and I hear that the customer service is good.
I had to! How will you know what possible ramifications an ill-advised tattoo can have unless I show you where the bad tattoos go? From the folks at I Can Has Cheezburger, another hilarious site. And a time-killer, for sure. Who knew there were that many bad tattoos and stupid people out there? Oh yeah. We did.
