THINK BEFORE YOU INK

Besides reaching the decision to have a tattoo at all, the next big decision is what design to choose. Tattoos can look really cool, provided a lot of thought has gone into choosing your design and based clearly on the understanding that this is a permanent marking on your body. Removal is expensive, painful and not always effective; thus, it's best to make the right choice from the outset, to avoid tears and regrets later.


Hopefully, you won't just wake up and think to yourself, "yeah, let's get tattooed today." If you do, then rethink, and fast. The more planning that goes into your design of choice, the more likely that you will enjoy your tattoo now, into the near future and through to much later in your life.

 

THIS JOB WILL STAY ON YOUR SKIN ALL YOUR LIFE

AVOID MAKING ANY RASH DECISIONS

The bad body art comes from making spontaneous decisions to go and have a tattoo done on a spur of the moment. If you're getting a tattoo because you're drunk or high, rebellious or your friends are goading you, then you're getting a tattoo for all the wrong reasons and the choice you make is likely to reflect this lack of forethought. Things you will regret include:

  • Any tattoo that looks like genitalia. Think about that, very carefully but not too long because the answer is simple: Just don't do it.

  • Anything misspelled (mostly because you were too drunk or high to notice till later).

  • Anything to do with high school or college (you do realize that it's over soon enough, right?)

  • Anything that mars your wedding dress, upstages your honeymoon, or gives your children an odd impression of you...

  • Anything written in a language you're not fluent in. Those Chinese characters might look sexy until a native Chinese speaker tells you what it really means is "object for sale", "I like mold for breakfast" or "horny goat"

  • Anything with the current crush's name on. It might feel like the two of you will last forever but if the tattoo has more chances of success in lasting the distance than the pair of you, this is plain dumb. The number one tattoos that artists are asked to cover up, after homemade tattoos, are names. If the person is not dead, or your child, names are usually not the best idea.

  • Anything faddish right now. A band, TV show, cartoon or comic book character you love today may not be something you want to carry around forever on your skin. It could date you more than your botoxed skin will ever give away...

YOU HAVE YOUR WHOLE LIFE TO LOOK AT THIS TATTOO

SLOW DOWN

 So some good reflection before getting it makes absolute good sense. Most of all, will you be happy with this design in 5 to 10 years time? Think well forward, too. Is your tattoo going to look good even when you're old and wrinkled? Chances are, a tribal dragon, Disney character or Hello Kitty won't.

  • Think about how big of an impact the design has on you. If you've fallen in and out of like with other designs like this before, then wait a few years before you decide to get it.

  • On the other hand, if a design you're thinking about is something that represents or has given you hope in a rough time in your life, perhaps helped you find out who you are, or something along those lines, then it might be the right choice, as that monumental self-change is going to guide much of the who you become for the rest of your life.

ANOTHER HAND MIGHT BE THE BEST OPTION

CONSIDER WHERE YOU WANT THE TATTOO

This will have some influence on the design, especially if it's an intimate design. For any parts of your body that you show regularly (and that is a lot of body if you're a bikini or board shorts wearer), then that doesn't leave much space for intimate tattoos that you don't want your grandmother seeing.

  • Consider how likely it will be that you will need to cover the body area where your tattoo is to go with clothing, or otherwise, at some point. For example, if you're a female, will you feel comfortable wearing evening wear such as backless or strapless dresses if you have a back tattoo?

  • Think about future career options. Is a tattoo likely to be an issue or even a liability if it's showing with the expected work clothing or uniform? This may well depend on what industry you intend to work in but remember that with increased fluidity, people are changing careers constantly, so you may not ever be able to be sure what you'll do down the track. Keep this in mind when choosing placement of a tattoo.

SPEND SOME TIME REFINING THE DESIGN AND CHOOSING THE RIGHT DETAILS

CHOOSE A TATTOO THAT HAS A MEANING FOR YOU

Do some research first. Head over to the library or a reputable tattoo parlor and look through tattoo design books. What sorts of designs are current, what seem to be timeless and what ones would you ever get in a million years? Some things to bear in mind include:

  • Stay away from the art (known as "flash") shown in the studios, except as inspiration. It is better to go with a unique and original design than a mass market design - "flash" is designed by excellent artists then sold to tattoo artists around the country and around the world.

  • Are there any particular artists whose style really impresses you? What about their work has such resonance for you and is likely to be classic over the years to come?

  • Writing, in any form or language, should be thought over twice as long. Check and recheck the meanings of any words or ideograms of a language you aren't fluent in. Choose quotes carefully. If using writing, also be sure to search for a font you like, or create your own.

SHOWING SIMPLE ART TO US WILL FOR SURE HELP DESIGN THE PERFECT ONE FOR YOU

BRING SOME SKETCHES OR DRAW IF YOU CAN A SIMPLE IDEA OF IT

Even if you cannot draw, a little practice and patience can get you a good outline, at least. Or, you can use drawing tools on your computer and some Photoshop magic to help out. Don't be overly bothered about your lack of drawing skills, as most tattoo artists will help you redraw and redesign a tattoo to a desired standard. This is a prompt and a guidance tool, to get your tattoo artist on the same wavelength as you.

OUR SUPER DESIGNER TEAM WILL CREATE ANY STYLE YOU REQUEST

IF YOU NEED HELP WE CAN CUSTOMIZE ANY STYLE IN THE WORLD FOR YOU

We specialize in all art forms, the way we do it is we customize the tattoo on your body and show you how it looks on the computer before you start and what you see on the screen will be a copy paste, no regrets or errors.

SEE HOW YOU FEEL ABOUT THE REHEARSAL RUN OF THE TATTOO

TRY HENNA FIRST

  1. Use henna to get a temporary version of the design. You won't be able to see different colors or certain looks, but you will be able to judge the feeling of a tattoo. Henna lasts a week to a month. During this time, use the opportunity to see how it looks with your usual clothing and how you feel about it as you go about your usual, daily activities.

  2. If even a henna tattoo is out of your price range, try the Sharpie option. Crude but still effective for knowing how it makes you feel to have a bold design inked onto a part of your body.​

Arabic calligraphy tattoo

ARABIC CALLIGRAPHY

OUR MAIN SPECIALTY

Huzz ink is the only in the world to specialize and represent it
world wide in many international conventions.

Script tattoos

SCRIPT TYPOGRAPHY

NOTHING STRONGER THAN WORDS

The most common style of tattoos. Can also be called the simplest. Mostly done to remember an incident or a person. More like a checkpoint that a person wants to remember for life.

GEOMETRIC & LINEAR SHAPES

LIFE STARTED WITH A DOT AND A LINE FOLLOWED

Intricate designs made of shapes that might use symmetry and repetition to create a large design. Alternatively, geometry may be added to a Neo-Traditional or other style tattoos. 
Often black but may use colour, create a 3D effect or incorporate dot work.

Dot work tattoo

DOT WORK

BUT BEAUTY WAS A DOT FOLLOWED BY A DOT

Intricate designs that use lots of tiny dots in areas where you might normally shade or use block color.

Tribal tattoos

TRIBAL

CLASSIC NEVER DIES

The oldest tattoo style, from ancient times. Nearly always black in colour, often using symmetry and geometrical design. Sometimes un-detailed with block black lines, or like the tattoo below, utilising delicate detail and precision. A good artist will carefully design a piece to compliment the shape of the body, like this one.

Black and grey

BLACK AND GREY

THE COLORS THAT YOU CAN WEAR EVERYDAY

Black and grey is a style that only uses black and white ink in varying shades. Typically, the tattoo is made by diluting the black ink with distilled water in various proportions, creating a "wash" of lighter shades. Some artists mix white with black ink to produce a gray shade, but it is not the traditional method. White ink can also be used to smooth out sharp transitions between the different shades, or as a highlight. This style supposedly originated in prison, where inmates had limited access to different colors of ink.

Realism tattoos

REALISM

THE HIGHEST LEVEL OF ART IS CREATION

A tattoo that looks exactly like it would in the real world. A fine art skill, realistic tattoos done well look like photographs on the skin. Here, it's important to have a good photo reference and pick a skilled, well-known artist. Pay as much as you can for a tattoo of this kind - you get what you pay for, and cheap realism and portrait tattoos look whack.

Maori tattoo

MAORI

THE LEGENDS OF NEW ZEALAND

The Maori are indigenous people that originated in New Zealand. They have a form of body art, known as moko but more commonly referred to as Maori tattooing. The art form was brought to the Maori from Polynesia and is considered highly sacred
The great thing about Maori tattoos is that to this day, no two tattoos are alike. Maori tattoos are one of a kind. They are always highly intricate and detailed and display the craftsmanship and artistry of not only the artist but of the Maori culture.

Polynesian tattoos

POLYNESIAN

ISLANDS

There are still debates about the Origins of Polynesian culture (debate details can be found by searching “Polynesian Culture” in wikipedia), but one thing we can ensure is that Polynesia is not a single tribe but a complex one. Polynesians which includes Marquesans, Samoans, Niueans, Tongans, Cook Islanders, Hawaiians, Tahitians, and Māori, are genetically linked to indigenous peoples of parts of Southeast Asia. It’s a sub-region of Oceania, comprising of a large grouping of over 1,000 islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean, within a triangle that has New Zealand, Hawaii and Eastern island as its corners.

Colored tattoos

COLOR

NOTHING MORE COLORFUL THAN COLORS

As we live day by day, the world of tattooing is evolving and years back the composition of colors where not that vibrant. Our luck has given us the chance to see these vibrant colors settle under our skin.

watercolor tattoo

WATERCOLOR

IF IT IS ART THEN WHY NOT

Currently very popular, Watercolour tattoos mimic an experimental artistic process - using splashes and streaks of colour to give the impression of paint being used on canvas or paper.
The watercolour effect can be all-encompassing to the design, with no line-work or other styles, but it can also be combined with realism or solid outlines, to form just the background or foreground of a tattoo.

asian tattoos

ASIAN

THE MOST SERIOUS ART FORM OF INK

Asian tattoos are both clandestine and open and this is precisely what makes them so fascinating. The imagery has a vast and rich backdrop of culture, history, and allusions. The Asian aesthetic has always been all about handmade stuff, as machines came in very late to the Asian tattoo scene. This ever-growing collection of designs are big in scale and cover the entire arm or leg or even total body tattoos starting at the neck and continuing to the feet.

Old skull tattoos

TRADITIONAL OR "OLD SCHOOL"

SAIL WITH WIND JERRY

Traditional or "old school" tattoos are a Western or classic Americana style, known for their bold outlines and solid colors. If done correctly, with proper aftercare this style will last a long time without having to be touched up.
