Your tattoo will be for you, and if it’s a personal one, you may not wish to have to answer twenty questions from curious people as to the meaning behind it. Personally, I thought about the meaning I wanted in the tattoo, then I thought about a visual way of expressing it that had meaning to me, but was indecipherable to someone else unless I explained it.
In other words, if someone asks about my tattoo I can choose to explain as little, or as much, of the full meaning as I like. The meaning of my tattoo is very personal to me, and represents family. But to a stranger it just looks like a subtle set of lines in a flowing wave-like symbol. The symbol has different meaning depending on which way up you view it.
I drew out ideas again and again until one just hit me. When it did, I kept it on a piece of paper where I could see it, for about two months, so I could be sure I wasn’t going to go off it.
I couldn’t decide where I wanted it so I took turns drawing the symbol in eyeliner on different places on my body. This was helpful because originally I’d decided I wanted it on my wrist, but after drawing it out in eyeliner and ‘wearing’ it for a day or two I decided against the idea.
I drew the design on paper up in marker pen before going to the tattooist, paying attention to the thickness of the lines – rather than having lines the same width all the way across I tapered them to give the tattoo a more flowing look.
The thought I put into the tattoo really paid off, as by the time I went to get it done I knew I was having the right meaning, and the right look, in the right place for me. So be patient and take your time in deciding and planning :)
A little can go a long way – the more meaning you incorporate into your tattoo, the more you can be sure you won’t regret it because true meaning lasts.

I have several ideas and have been keeping a page of tattoos I like to inspire me. The challenge is finding a way to design what I want but keep it within my budget, since, of course, I’d love to just get a whole back piece. It’s all about balance… 5 months ago
