Since it’s your tattoo, your design, your body, you can do just about anything that you want. Maybe you want to symbolize the last holiday you spent with your entire family before moving out of state; perhaps you want to show capturing the first photoshoot that you shot, you can easily do all of these things through your design and then some.

Most people these days incorporate a quote to go with their tattoo design, no matter if the design and quote match or not. That’s the best thing about any tattoo design, it’s your own, and you don’t have to go by any specific guidelines or rules.

Maybe you’re a new mom, and you want to display your newborn baby, you could have the design of a polaroid camera snapping a picture and the photo coming from the camera could be of your new bundle of joy!

Then you also have the option to add your child’s name, birthday, birth time, nickname, whatever you’re looking for.

Maybe you’re a model, and you want to display your profession or even a photographer. The options are endless, but one thing is sure, your design will be flawless, and it’ll be something that you’ll proudly display on your body! There isn’t design out there that you can’t customize to be your own, to have your twist on it, to add your favorite colors or quote, whatever the case may be.
