Design Your Own Tattoo – Are Free Tattoo Designs a Good Deal?

October 9th, 2008


Each and every one of us is always on the lookout for great deals and any way to save money whenever possible. As a result, many people often turn to the Internet to search for free tattoo designs. For many people, free is always very appealing. When you stop and think about it, a free tattoo design sounds a lot better than paying as much as $150.00 for one at a tattoo studio.

It really is quite simple: you just draw your own tattoo design and then pay a tattoo artist to do the actual inking. No fuss, no muss, right?

However, after giving it some thought, you may begin to wonder if free tattoo designs are actually worth it in the end.

The fact that they’re free is great, although you may wonder if the design is something you would like to display permanently on your body. When you show your new tattoo to friends, they may be biased against it when you tell them that you got the design free off the Internet. Each and every time you show your tattoo people will want to know about the message and the design, which you’ll probably need to think about.

All of us are familiar with the old saying “you get what you pay for”, and it’s truly no different in this case.

Although there are literally hundreds of websites that provide free tattoo designs, few of them are really much good to be perfectly honest. Most of the free designs out there are of very poor quality. Therefore, it may be in your best interest to wait and have a professional tattoo artist create a professional looking design for you.

Those who choose to go with free tattoo designs will tell you that tattoos are very expensive and they can’t afford to have a professional tattoo artists draw up the design. Some people, when dealing with custom tattoo designs, will say that their tattoo artist doesn’t do custom designs or that he just doesn’t want to do theirs. Although most of this may be true to some extent, there truly is no better way to get a tattoo than using a design made by a professional tattoo artist.

As most already know, free tattoo designs are normally made by those who know next to nothing about tattoo designing. In most cases, these designs are made by someone who is looking to make a quick profit instead of a true professional tattoo artist. You can easily tell that they aren’t professional quality simply by looking at them. Most free designs exhibit poor quality by their poor lines and the work often appears to have been generated on a  PC. You certainly wouldn’t want to use something like this for your own tattoo for the very simple reason that you will be displaying it on your body probably for the rest of your life.

If you spend a lot of time searching on the Internet for free tattoo designs, you may be able to find a few of decent quality. There are some good quality designs out there, although you’ll probably have to search quite a bit to find them. It’s best to have an idea in mind about the tattoo you want and then look for it. Although it may take you some time, you could very well find it. If you do come across it as a free tattoo design, you should always double check the quality before you decide to have it done. It may be a good idea to show the design to several tattoo artists with good reputations to get their opinions on it.
