What Pictures Tell You
There are advantages to looking at tattoo pics. A picture of a design can tell you if it looks good at all. Some designs only look great in flash or in their inking pattern. It can be an entirely different story though when they get etched on skin. Looking at a picture of a tattoo on someone else’s skin will help convince you if it is any good at all.
Skin Colors – Some tattoos are also meant for certain skin colors. People aren’t really just black and white. There are various degrees of skin color in between dark and light. A tattoo that doesn’t match your skin color will only make you look untidy. Pictures of tattoos are a good way to help you pick one that will complement your skin color.
Body Spot – Pictures are also invaluable when picking a spot. Not every body part will look good with designs that seem cool. Actual pictures will provide some idea if a design is too big for your foot, too small for your lower back or just downright misplaced.
Possibilities – Finally, tattoo pictures help tell you how things can go wrong. Yes, some tattoo clients opt to have pictures taken and displayed of botched tattoo jobs. You can at least avoid similar difficult designs or the artists that did them.
