If you are a fan of rock or metal or any music genre of your choice, you may get a tattoo of your favorite music band.

I have a tattoo of Led Zeppelin on my flexors as I am a very big fan of rock music and a big fan of Led Zeppelin, I have got a tattoo of that band on my flexors.

You may go for the tattoo of any band you like. Be it Metallica, Beatles or any other band of your choice.

You may also ink yourself with the name of a particular singer. But I personally favor band logos because I feel they look a total badass.

Also, if you are comfortable, you may go for a famous line of a particular song that you love of that band. For example, I saw a style in which ‘Stairway to Heaven’ was written which is one of the most popular songs by Led Zeppelin.

So it’s your call of what style you decide to keep. But keep in mind that price changes with the design of tatoo.

  1. Tattoos of Musical Instruments

If you are into playing guitar, drums, violin or any other musical instrument, you may get a tattoo of that on your body.

Just keep in mind that such tattoos would only suit on your arms. Making it on your chest or back would just look ridiculous.

So you may go for tattoos of musical instruments. It would signify your deep interest in that very instrument.

Do not ink yourself with such a tattoo if you are not into playing that particular musical instrument because you would not be doing justice with that. Only make a tattoo of a musical instrument if you are into playing some of those.

Zodiac signs is one of the most amazing tattoo styles briefly explained here in this article. If the first thing you do in the morning is to pick up the newspaper, turn to the astrology page and look up for your day today corresponding to your zodiac sign then you may go for tattoos of your zodiac sign.

Zodiac tattoos are meant for those who have a strong sense of attachment to their zodiac signs.

If you feel that a particular nature of yours is carried by you just because you are a member of a particular zodiac, they go for it! It is in trend these days and would surely look fantastic!

So if you are such kind of person, go for the zodiac tattoos. I would again prefer it on the hands as per my opinion, tattoos are best suited in hands only.

I am not against a full body tattoo but personally, I do not like it. It feels way too much artificial.

  1. Tattoo of Your name or your closed ones

If you like, you may get a tattoo of your own name in some good font. This would simply look super cool.

Inking your name on your body would just look amazing. But there is a catch! You must not make a mammoth tattoo of your name. This would look absolutely ridiculous and a total showoff.

Go for a small-sized tattoo of your name.

Or if you love someone, who is very close to you, a part of your life, then you may go for their name. Like the name of your wife, your love, your children, your parents or anyone with such importance to you.

This would signify your love and respect towards them.

So this is one of the ideas that you may go for if you are close to someone or you badly love someone or if you are a family person and love your little ones. Initials of their names would also be a good idea.

  1. Tattoo of a particular line or a message
