Do you read reviews, take advice, research on your own or speak to people before buying/selling or investing in some major activity. I am sure it would be yes. You should do the same before getting a tattoo design inked on your skin or while choosing the best tattoo designer to execute the design well.
However, when planning to get a tattoo, don't be dissuaded by the things you hear about the designer or the post tattoo care regimen. You should make inquiries about tattoo artists, their prices, quality of work as well as the safety and hygiene measures practiced by them, before getting inked. However, you should watch out for these three common lies about tattoo designers.
The designer won't be able to create a design that the client wants: Most people claim that they would have loved to get a tattoo done but there is no designer who can understand exactly what the client wants and hence will not be able to deliver the exact design. As far as the skill of an experienced tattoo artist is concerned, this is far from true.
Tattoo designers are artists with knowledge, skill, and precision and have the ability to understand the personality of any individual. Since their job involves interacting with people and inking tattoos on human skin, they are familiar with the psyche of humans coming from different backgrounds. They can design whatever tattoo their client wants based on how well he or she is able to describe the idea to them. Tattoos are pretty permanent, and it's totally reasonable for the client to expect a perfect custom tattoo design.
In fact, a great thing about these designers is that they work with the client to make sure their art completely represents what the client is trying to express with the design in the first place. And, guess what? A client can even work with different designers. All that is required is that one needs to share his or her thoughts about the tattoo until they find the artist that meets their needs.
There Aren't Many Designers to Choose From: Actually, the truth is that there are amazing designers all over the world who would love to create a custom tattoo design for interested clients. It could be that one may not have access to a lot of designers so one may not know this. Internet gives to easy access to a host of designers from all across the globe to share your idea with and get a tattoo of your choice.
You can check latest tattoo designs online, know their prices, and find out designers who create them, contact them and discuss your tattoo ideas with them. All it takes is some time and clarity of thought in your head. You'll have worldwide access to artists who will all bring a different perspective to your tattoo. Plus, any artist's designs that are on the web can be viewed by millions of people. Just consider the quality of art you'll get when the designer is not only working to satisfy you as their client, but creating art the whole world can see.
You can even host a custom tattoo design contest online. Such a contest not only allows you to choose from a range of the best designs created by some of the most creative designers in the industry but get them at a very competitive price too.
Tattoo Designers Are Expensive: It makes sense when people say that custom tattoo designs are expensive when compared with the regular designs. Although it is true that custom tattoos cost relatively more, but it would be wrong to say that they are always very expensive. As we discussed that if you host a custom tattoo design contest online, you can actually have your tattoo created by an artist at a very reasonable price, say $50 or $75. A person would not mind paying a little more for a custom design that will adorn his body for the rest of his life.
