Tattoos are as such intriguing and attract more than one head turn when you show them off. And if you have something written something then, people might just stare at you to read what you have got in there. Tattoo fonts matter a lot when you want to make an impression with that. And you may not necessarily choose Latin or Latinized fonts for the tattoos. Kanji Japanese and Arabic fonts are also in demand by the people who want something to be written in a tattoo form. The most common ones are the Fiery and Icy font styles. Even the old English fonts are much in demand due to its eye-catching style.
Again, you must choose the right font as the tattoos reflect your personality. You can choose a loud font or a soft font for the tattoo. You can also look on the internet for choices.

Getting a stylish tattoo font in a stylish calligraphic style is no doubt a fashion statement so spend some time researching on the fonts that attract you the most. Ancient fonts that are rare to find are also a craze by tattoo lovers. However, while taking a decision on fonts choose a minimum of three to five designs before you finalize one. It always helps to consult a tattoo artist to help you select the trendiest tattoo fonts. And remember tattoos are going to stay for ever so it is wise to take the right decision.
If you want to flaunt a tattoo with a name then it is always better to do some research before having a tattoo done up. So take time and think. If you want to write your name or the name of god or some Greek mythological creature names or general words like ‘love’, ‘holy spirit’, ‘mom’ or ‘dad’, then it is fine. But in case you want to show off your boy friend or girl friend’s name, then there are chances that you regret it. So always take a while to think and take a decision rather than being impulsive about it. If you belong to a specific club or group and want to create a logo tattoo for all to have one in the gang. Then you must do much research and consider other’s opinion before selecting one.
Next is to choose the right spot for the tattoos. You may not want a big tattoo written word on a spot that doesn’t look legible or isn’t suitable for that kind of font. If you want to place the tattoo in your arm then you must choose the fonts that can look good even when they are small and at least they are readable. If the word you want to get the tattoo with has only three or four words, arms is the right place. But if you want to get a complete sentence like three words or so, then go for the back of the neck or lower back as it would require more space.
The perfect tattoo font is the one that has both the letters and the design perfectly blended to it. Happy tattooing!

Tattoos now a days encompass a lot of different type body arts collected or adapted from different parts of the world. Each part of the world has its own unique style of decorating the body with color and designs. One such style comes from the Southern Asia, Henna tattoo designs. Made from the dried powder of the plant from the genus Lawsonia that belongs to Lythraceae family, the word Henna was taken from the Arabic word for it. Henna tattoo designs have been widely adapted as a method to decorate body parts by many countries around the world.
In certain parts of the world, Henna tattoos are also known as Mehndi. Henna leaves are dried and made into a smooth thick paste that is used to create elaborate and intricate designs. In some South Asian countries, Henna tattoos are considered to be sacred and are usually drawn on hands and feet during festive occasions and ceremonies. For marriage rituals, Henna is much in demand. Not only the bride but others in the household also get their hands decorated with the Henna tattoo designs.
Henna tattoo fall in the category of temporary tattoos. The Lawsone in the smooth Henna pasted when comes in contact with the keratin available in the skin, it turns into a color that can range between dark orange, red, maroon to black. The color lessens after the skin comes in contact with water but it doesn’t completely go away till a week or so. Usually the henna tattoo designs are drawn and left on the skin for a few hours before the dried paste of the design is removed to get the designs show the right color expected.
Though henna tattoo designs can simply be made with the henna paste, the henna artists use a number of other accessories to add to the color and to their permanence which can now stay up to one month. Henna if applied to the nails leave a permanent stain that only removes after the nail is grown enough to cut that part out.
But you must be careful when you go for faster coloring black henna. As it may contain para-phenylenediamine (PPD) that can cause skin allergy and can prove worse that one expects. Henna, if natural, can not make the skin black in just about an hour. It can give an orange to red shade within that much time. Certain shops in South Asia provide an essential oil
made by mixing tea tree, lavender, eucalyptus and cajeput oils. This is added to the Henna paste to make the color darker and stay for a longer time.
Henna tattoo designs can be drawn on the back of the neck, arms, belly, hands and feet. When intricately drawn, henna looks attractive and usually the complete arm is decorated in henna designs at certain places in the world. Now a days, glitter particles are added to make the designs get a gold or silver shimmer which make it look more attractive.
