Get some inkspiration with the best tattoo magazines and blogs

Sorry. I love a word pun. Always will.

So you’ve decided you want a tattoo, and you know the symbol or picture, but still have no idea what else it might look like. Realistic? With flowers? In colour? If you’ve got some basic ideas but have no idea how to describe it to your tattooist, you need a few pretty pictures to get your creative juices going.

Get reading and create a visual collage of ideas, photos and illustrations. Pin them up on your walls. Cram your head with creative goodiness, so you can be 100% sure on what you want.
