Star wrist tattoos are absolutely awesome but time and time again, I see many people make the same old stupid mistakes when selecting the design of their choice. My displeasure with this situation have led to me write this article as a way of helping fellow tattoo art lovers avoid these dumb mistakes.
Mistake 1. Rushing into an awful tattoo.
Choosing the right star wrist tattoos can be hard because there are so many types to choose from. Therefore, you should not pick one in a hurry.
Ponder around for a few days; take your own sweet time, no need to rush – the tattoo shops will still be around even if you take months or years to make your decision! Remember, getting tattoos means that you’ll be inked for life so do not rush into getting a horrible tattoo!
Mistake 2. Cramming 10 sumo wrestlers into a Mini Cooper
How large is your wrist? I ask this question because I see a lot of people requesting for fancy star wrist tattoos complete with a photorealistic image of a lion standing over the star, dragons smooching the star, fairies and porcupines skateboarding together on the star and God knows what else.
Here’s the news: You can’t crammed all sorts of complex designs onto a small portion of the skin – in this case your wrist. I equate this to cramming 10 sumo wrestlers into a Mini Cooper.
You must understand that the tattoo will age and if the size of the tattoo is small yet jam-packed with complex images, it’ll certainly look like crap after 5 years. So when it comes to tattooing the wrist, keep it simple.
Mistake 3. Not choosing the right methods when searching for tattoo designs on the web.
Avoid looking for star wrist tattoos on the web using normal search engine – unless you love to have your wrist inked with bland, thousands-of-people-have-it artwork. I recommend two sources: online boards or tattoo databases.
The latter is the preferred option because they contain tons of one-of-a-kind designs which are updated regularly (they usually have several in-house artists updating the database), plus studio directories to help you find reputable artists near you.
