Over the centuries people have used pictures to display their intentions for all to see; however, as with every new era, a new phenomenon is emerging in the form of tattoo lettering. Italic tattoo lettering is one of hundreds of font styles for you to choose from. However the italic font is one that shows off the most class and is an absolutely beautiful way to express yourself.
A popular, yet personal, way that many people choose to incorporate lettering into a tattoo is to have it within or accompanying a picture tattoo. In that way you can feature the best of both worlds in one tattoo and still keep the personal meaning you want.
While the most popular and commonly thought of color to use is black, do not limit yourself. Try your favorite color or a mixture of colors, even a rainbow within the text, to give your italic tattoo lettering a higher sense of creativity, uniqueness and personality. After all, your tattoo will speak about you and for you for the rest of your life.
Choosing what text to ink on your body is probably the second most important thing to consider when deciding on getting italic tattoo lettering, the first being the font itself. You want something that is meaningful and uniquely yours, yet at the same time you probably do not want a tattoo that will either upset or throw people for a loop when trying to figure out what it means and then why you chose it. That is, of course, unless that is your intention.
Another thing you should put under high consideration is where to put your italic tattoo lettering. Many people, men and women alike, are opting to have it inked on their backs. The main reason being is that your back is the largest and most flat area of your body, which makes it a great blank canvas for many different chest tattoos, especially those that are larger or contain phrases. Women seem to find that putting italic tattoo lettering on their lower backs adds a bit of sex appeal, while men seem to use their entire back for such displays.
Either way you go, it is sure to be a great piece that you will treasure for the rest of your life. Whether you want to have your name, your child’s name (or your children’s names), your zodiac sign, your pet’s name, your favorite phrase or anything else you can think of, italic tattoo lettering is the perfect solution for just about everything.
Remember to put some thought into where you want to put your italic tattoo lettering since that will be a permanent mark for years to come; and, of course, do not forget to be creative in the color or colors you choose. You want to make this something that is yours and yours alone. No matter what you choose to write and where you choose to write it, it is sure to be a striking piece of art that everyone will enjoy.
