Ribbons – the perfect idea for your first tattoo

Whether you have it at the age of 18 or 41, your first tattoo is a major life experience, so you shouldn’t rush to the nearest tattoo shop and get a random design. A tattoo is a personal statement that sticks with your forever, a graphic representation of your personality or a short description of an important person or event. It’s never an exciting prospect to decide on a tattoo design on the spot, like it for a couple of weeks and then start regretting it, so before talking to an artist do some research and pick something that truly represents you. If you’re a girl and you are looking for suggestions for your first tattoos, ribbons are actually a very good idea. Just visit websites like theribbonroom.co.uk, have a look at their fantastic ribbon designs and show them to your tattoo artists to create a unique tattoo.

 

There are many reasons why something as subtle and elegant such as a ribbons works well for your first tattoo. To begin with, you don’t know if you will like being tattooed. There are many people who like the idea of having a tattoo, but once they get one, they decide to have it removed. A subtle ribbon tattoo works because if you like it you can develop it into something larger or get other tattoos. If you don’t, at least this one isn’t so big as to other you. Secondly, tattoos can really hurt and it’s not an exciting prospect to sit down to have a big, intricate tattoo done and discover halfway that you can’t stand the physical discomfort. Even the biggest tattoo fans started out small, so try to be cautious and go for something simple, at least at first. Besides, ribbons can easily be incorporated into more complex tattoos with flowers, cursive writing, birds and even portraits.

 

While some girls are interested in an edgy biker look, others want to get a tattoo as subtle as an elegant piece of jewelry and ribbons are the perfect choice for this. Tattooed on their own or together with the above mentioned elements, they create a stunning artistic look that you can wear without being controversial. For example, you can have a beautiful ribbon tattooed on your arm or ankle and it will look like a bracelet, or you can wear it on the back of your head. This last option is great if you don’t want your tattoo to show all the time, especially at work. However, if you want to go for something that stands out more, you can have a look at some online designs and ask your tattoo artist to make an intricate, oversized pinup bow. As for the colour range, it’s all up to you. If you want something joyful and girly, you can go for a colourful tattoo. If not, black and white is always timeless. To make the tattoo more elegant, you can ask the artist to draw the ribbon as if it’s made of lace.
