Libra is an astrological sign associated with scales. To design a Libra tattoo, brainstorm designs, sketch your ideas and consult a tattoo artist. Designing a Libra tattoo takes as little as 15 minutes and requires colored pencils and paper.
- Select the location for the tattoo
Where you get the tattoo dictates the size and design. An arm tattoo must be smaller and simpler than a tattoo on the back. If you already have tattoos, think about how the new tattoo will work with your current art.
- Research Libra tattoos
Visit websites such as Tattoo Easily or Free Tattoo Designs on which people post pictures of their tattoos. Libra tattoos can be a simple set of scales, an elaborate scene or a sketch of the symbol for Libra.
- Sketch your idea
Don't copy someone else's tattoo. Instead, use the images for inspiration to design your own graphic. For a small location, consider the Libra symbol or simple scales. For a larger area, consider adding people or animals. Many people include a maiden or symbols for good and evil. Wording can also be included.
- Add color and emotions
If the tattoo is to be colored, add this to your sketch. Also write any feelings you have about the imagery.
- Consult a tattoo artist
A tattoo artist knows how to fit a design onto the skin. Talk to the artist about your ideas, explaining the feeling you want the tattoo to convey.
