Types of Name Tattoos
Text-only name tattoos rely on stylish typography to give meaning and character to the body markings. The more ancient the lettering style, the more mystical and fascinating. Old English and Oriental typography styles are highly sought after. Modern typography templates are acceptable, especially if they represent the personality of the bearer. Elegant decorations sometimes add beauty or character. These added elements could be simple or elaborate as long as they represent the personality of the bearer.
Aside from using decorations, tattoo artists also combine letterings with objects that characterize personalities. Common objects include the heart, bird, butterfly, flower, dagger, skull and many more.
Writing trends also add to the relevance of name tattoos. A vogue tattoo font is more likely to draw attention. An excessively fancy font however, could not last the test of time and may be passé in just a few years. Avoid using overly decorative fonts, and just safely use classical ones if you have no particular modern font in mind.
