Lettering Tattoos

When someone wants a lettering tattoo, be it a word, phrase or entire paragraph, I’ll usually give them a few font choices. I prefer to hand draw an fancy script for single words and choose a font from the computer for longer pieces.

Melissa wanted to get a phrase added to her back while I was tattooing in Arizona. So I fired up Photoshop and did what I usually do for longer lettering tattoos: I made her a print out with a couple different styles. Each is similar to what she described that she wanted and she chose between them. Here is that piece of paper. She went with the one second to the bottom.
