2. Choose a motif you love
You should really take your time when choosing the motif that you wear for a lifetime on your skin.
Choose something meaningful. Maybe a symbol with which you associate a story, a name (be careful which name you choose) or simply a motif you like, the most important thing is that you are 100% convinced.
If no single motif meets your expectations, you can also combine several symbols into one great work of art. The best way to create an unique tattoo is to collaborate with your artist.

4. Choose a good placement
You should simply pay attention to where you like it best and where it fits best.
If you are worried about the pain, you might want to choose a less painful place, like the upper arm. Click here to read more about “Painful and less painful places”.

5. The right artist
It is of no use to have a motif, the style and the placement without the right artist.
Take your time when researching your tattoo artist, because every tattoo artist has his own way of tattooing. You should choose the one that suits you best.
Of course you should also look at some reviews and find out if the tattoo artist works clean and if the clients are happy with his work.
Overall you should take your time when choosing your tattoo and think carefully what do I want, where should it go, how should it be fulfilled and who should do it.
