Having a script tattoo can be a really beautiful way of getting a particular message across. However there are a lot of things that people overlook and a lot of things that can go bad.
Check, check, re-check, re-check & check again. Give it to someone else to re-check. Once it’s drawn up, check the spelling, check the grammar and the sentence structure. Read it upside down and read it backwards. This is your own fault if you stuff any of this up.
The font. The font sets the mood for the whole tattoo, so make sure you’re conveying the same message that the font displays. Make the font is actually readable if that’s what you are after. Make sure the style of writing doesn’t accidentally change the words ‘clint to cunt’. Thin writing is delicate and dainty and girly, no matter how well you look after it, in a few years it will blur a bit and bleed. You don’t have to sacrifice the small writing just make sure it is spaced out enough so when it does bleed you have some compensation room.
If you are quoting someone, lyrics, poems, quote from a speech, historical passage etc – make sure you actually understand the meaning of the text. If you’re unsure just google it and check out a few sources.
If you’re getting something in another language, make sure you are getting it translated properly. Although google translate is a good tool for a quick translation,chances are it’s not going to be exactly the right way to say it. Find someone that speaks the language natively to translate it for you and make sure it makes perfect sense.
