Lettering Tattoos

While there are many beautiful images that people choose to get tattooed onto themselves, sometimes the best way to express a thought or emotion is to get a tattoo of a meaningful word or phrase. Music lovers often get a favorite song lyric inked on their bodies, while fans of literature may get a tattoo of a favorite quotation from a book or poem. People who believe strongly in their religions may wish to tattoo a meaningful verse from their holy books, and those who speak different languages may choose to think outside the box and get tattoos in languages other than English. The possibilities for lettering tattoos are as limitless as the many words of the languages of the world.

Another thing to consider when getting a lettering tattoo is the font in which it is written. Do you want an elaborate style of writing, or a simplistic one? The great thing about lettering tattoos is that no two are the same, and the meanings are infinite.

While we cannot hope to make a dent in the numerous types of lettering tattoos, here is a small sampling to get you started with inspiration if you are considering this type of body art.
