To choose a tattoo, the subject must think about why he wants the tattoo, brainstorm ideas and do some research. Considerations such as employment and tattoo coloring should be kept in mind. For example those who work in conservative industries may want to choose small, single-colored, discreet tattoos.
Anyone who wants a tattoo to remember or honor someone might list things or activities the person enjoyed. If the tattoo is for personal reasons, the person getting the tattoo must think about what has emotional value to him. Listing birth dates, wedding dates, birth month flowers and birth month animals is one way to start.
